Pastel Flowers Speak

Welcome back! Today’s whim was to finish a card that will fit challenges on two blogs, Power Poppy and The Cat’s Pajamas.

PowerPoppy’s Power & Spark Challenge is for a pop of pastel.


I don’t have any Power Poppy stamps yet, but they’re not required for the challenges and I’m hoping to score some of Marcella’s gorgeous flower stamps, starting with Orchids Rock… check ’em out here! Aren’t they lovely?!

So I decided to use The Cat’s Pajamas’ fab Lacy Posies and Five Petal Posies dies to make some embossed pastel tissue paper flowers using TCPTUES288 Color Challenge colors:

By embossing the tissue paper with the Lacy Posies die, the flowers have some lovely added dimension! If the other pictures I took turn out, when I get a chance, I’ll put together a step-by-step on how the flowers were done. (UPDATE: You can see the details here: )

Felt Flower – The Cat’s Pajamas TCP Tuesday (TCPTUES287)

This morning I finally finished up a project that I had started earlier this week for The Cat’s Pajamas TCP Tuesday challenge (TCPTUES287):

I had hoped to make a felt pin out of TCP’s new Lacy Petal Posies die set, but my old Cuttlebug just doesn’t have the umph to cut through the detailed part in felt. It DID, however, do a fab job of embossing it! (click on the photos to see it better!) Now the whim changed from a pin to a card, instead. So I cut out some coordinating plain posy pieces and layered them together. I cut the leaf scroll apart and added a touch of Wink of Stella on the plain leaves and in the middle of the flower, which perked it up. The fine twinkle it adds goes well with the sparkle already on the card:

I think I’ll leave it blank so I can use it for any occasion.
