Flower Frame...

 Morning so continuing with the theme I started over the weekend I bought some frames to decorate with the same stamp set used to make the card I made. I decided to keep the colour way simple and use the colours from the card that I created at the weekend and think that they turned out really well... Let me know what you think??
As the frames are wood I coated them with PVA glue and water and left this to dry before I stamped on the. I used the vine from Vintage Vogue and the flowers are from Cottage Garden I randomly stamped the flowers first and then in the gaps in between then stamped the vine, some in full colour and some stamped off.
To add that little extra bling to the frames I added a little gem to the centre of each flower and think that this looks really good!
I did another frame in slightly different colours - can you tell what they are??
Thanks for looking - Debbi
Two posts in one week are you impressed??

OK so I  know that it has been several months since I did any type of crafting and posted it to my blog - however that is all to change... My craft stuff is back out and I have had a good sort out and I have found some inspiration (that has been severely lacking over the last several months)
I decided to use one of the newest purchases that I had from Stampin' Up! and even though I am no longer a demonstrator I still have stamp sets that remain unused in my stash! So I decided that I would just keep my card very simple and just use card stock to create layers. I chose the colours poppy parade and peach parfait with olive green for the vine detail on the right of the card. I love these colours together and wanted something very bright in celebration of me getting inky fingers again!
I have stamped a flower on whisper white and then with the stamped off image added this to the whisper white panel on the card. I have added the greeting from Cottage Garden to the bottom right of the card, I cut the flower out and added this to the card with a dimensional.
I distressed all the edges to the card and love the effect that this gives to each layer even though there are no dimensionals used here it does add height.
I have used an old shaving brush to add the colour to the card blank and have used all three colours very lightly around the edge of the card.

I know that I have been away for a long time and I hope you like my card - now that I am back to crafting I intend to share what I am making with you - so watch this space. I hope you like the card that I have made and thanks for looking - happy stampin Debbi xxx
