My co-worker asked me to make a card for her mothers birthday, in black, white & red. This is what I came up with. These "lolli-pop" posies are so easy to make. I just free hand circles out of patterned papers. (the circles do not have to be perfect) I distressed the edges, misted lightly with water, then start to crinkle & shape. I used SU border punch for the red strip, then layered ribbon over the top. I used a swirl/flourish punch by EK Success-(that is in the top left)Punched from black cs then I used black diamond stickels for some sparkle.
My passion for crafting goes back more than 20 yrs. I love it all..embroidery, watercolors, stamping, making mini books, and making paper flowers. I also love all things vintage, and love to use them in my crafting. I used to scrapbook when my children were small... but now my son is almost 14, and my daughter is almost 24. I currently teach classes at the Scrapbook N More in New Braunfels, and Stamp Antonio in San Antonio, TX.
