Elegant 50's fashion and Lets Create flowers



A scheduled post here at we are out for the day with one of the boys and his partner so fingers crossed this appears on time Saturday morning for our new challenge at Allsorts where our theme is 'Use those dies', something I think most of us have in abundance. Our sponsors are our DT Jo who as well as featuring regularly on Create and Craft also runs a craft store Lets Create and our second sponsor is FlonzCraft.

I have used one of my favourite FlonzCraft images 50's Fashion Girl 10, which I have paper pieced with Graphic 45 DP's and mounted onto a Spellbinder frame. I used the same DP for the back panels, some lace, die cut leaves and a handmade rose which I stamped with scrip and dipped into UTEE.


This one uses one of Jo's own range of Lets Create Vintage stamp images, the card is one of the samples I made for Jo some time age using Graphic 45 DP's, Spellbinder dies and paper pieced and decoupled the flowers. It's fairly simple but I think the image is so lovely it needs little more. There are six packs of clear stamps in this range and all stamp out beautifully crisp.

Happy weekend all.

The second is my favourite here though I love the way you have used the lace to echo the image panel's laced corners. The second one just grabs my attention for I love the effect of the decoupaged paper piecing & that little trio of gems is a lovely touch. Hope you've had a good day by the time you read this.
