White Flowers

... and here is the card with white flowers used as embellishments which I mentioned yesterday.  I used the Chocolate Baroque Haberdashery and Lace stamps, again on the Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby paper - I'm trying to use up as much of a sheet of paper as I can when cutting into a new one rather than put the pieces into my 'bits and pieces' boxes.  Mind you there are always some small pieces left which I can never bear to throw away!! The backing paper has been overstamped with some of the small detail stamps from the set and the pincushion was placed so that I could pop the punched oval sentiment onto it.  The lace strip was embossed with white detail EP and cut out with scissors; the dress form image is on Nestabilities.  You already know the story of the white flowers and as you see these have been added along with black swirls cut with  Marianne dies.


  1. Oh I like this card Val the white flowers looks stunning against the the new dress form stamp


  2. Very effective - those flowers with the black swirl against the pale blues is quite amazing.
    Brilliant idea with using up the paper too - I like that idea immensely.

  3. lovely card for a sewer - nice colours too! Admire your resolution in using up the spare bits right away

  4. Love this card Val - the lace and haberdashery stamps are gorgeous. Black, white and blue go so well together.

  5. Just gorgeous Val! That lace border looks like the real deal in this photo ............ beautiful work altogether. Between you, Judith, Elaine and you have sold me on these stamps I think, lol, even though I've been trying to resist, lol!
