Fun Flowers

Hello there,

Aren't there some gorgeous projects around in Blogland at the moment with all the Mini goodies ? Having to take it easy is becoming very frustrating but at least I have got more time to read about what everyone else has been making. I spent all morning today lying on the settee ruffling ribbon but I 'll show you that another day !

Todays cards are made from the new SU exclusive Fun Flowers die. These look fantastic all layered up but mine are in very short supply at the moment so I have had to make them last. I haven't got this die (yet!) but I have got just a few I managed to run through the Big Shot when at the training in Coventry - I did take my own paper lol !

Colours are Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake. I have used the Printed Petals set to make my own flower centre. Another die cut flower, this time the centre is made from Boho Blossoms and Itty Bitty punches and some gorgeous ribbon ruffles. Love the dimension and different textures !

The final of the 3 flower shapes teamed with my favourite Baroque Motifs swirl and a bow from the new seam binding ribbon.

Think you can see that from just 1 run through the Big Shot you can quickly make beautiful embellishments for 3 cards - can't wait to layer them when I've got my own never-ending supply !!!


  1. Beautiful cards Julie. Loving this Fun Fowers die! Can't wait for mine to arrive!!
    Hugs, Vicky ~x~

  2. Oh wow! These are superb Julie! Love the first one with the gorgeous Printed Petals centre and doesn't the flower look amazing on the Baroque Motifs swirl!

  3. These are absolutely lovely, I must order myself that flower die, it's certainly on my wish list now, along with everything else in the mini catalogue!!! x

  4. What a fabulous set of cards - colours are very effective.

  5. Hi Julie

    Beautiful cards - very effective. Would make a gorgeous set in a little box. You have made me decide I really have to have this set! LOL

    Have a great day at Jules at the weekend - Sadly I cant make it but will be thinking of you all. Love Terri xx
