Happy Hello from Flowering Fields

I would like to say thank you to everyone for all of the lovely comments and feed back you gave me for my Flowering Fields Blog hop Thank You Cards, it has made me so happy! Many of you ask questions about the colours, card size and how I did my bows, so today I have made another version of the card and will provide you with all the details:

Now for the details for the card:

Flowers are from the absolutely lovely Sale-A-Bration Flowering Fields stamp set, if you have fallen in love with it and just have to have it don't hesitate to order because it is only available for a limited time.  I have used Basic Black Archival ink for stamping. I added the adorable butterfly today, just love it!

I used Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the flowers so that I could achieve this layout - it takes out all the guess work!


In today's card I have used a sentiment from the Tin of Cards set, on Sunday's card I used One Big Meaning.  I punched and die cut the circles for the sentiment, and popped up on dimensionals for a layer effect. Depending on your sentiment you can change the size or shape.

Colour Combo

My card today has a pink theme, I have used an Aqua Painter to colour the flowers  using, Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi and Blackberry Bliss.  I have gone over all the colours using a Wink of Stella to give a lovely shimmer.  Sunday's card had a blue theme, I used the co-ordinating colours from the Wildflower DSP.  Using Aqua Painters allows you to change the depth of colour by adding more ink or "fading" by adding more water.

The Bow!
I would call myself bow challenged, but all that has changed since I got my hands on "Bow-Easy". I watched a couple of You Tube clips and my fear of bow has disappeared!  I have used 1/2 inch seam binding ribbon for the bow, Pink Pirouette today, Soft Sky on Sunday.

Card Size 
Card Base 10 cm x 20 cm; 10 cm x 10 cm when scored and folded- Blushing Bride, Lost Lagoon on Sunday
Stamped layer 9.5 cm x 9.5 cm - Whisper White
