Flower cakes

I also made these for my co-worker (for her to give away), but my husband is keeping them. 

Once again, I made the pink one first, for my own pleasure.  Then I made it again in purple because that’s my co-worker’s favourite colour.  For the little flowers, I used a little punch to punch them out, and then I watercoloured them.  I watercoloured the flames, and then sponged a glow around them. 

I don’t have any oval punches, so I used an oval guide to draw and cut out the white ovals.  The next larger oval size was too large so I drew the same oval size on black and then cut around it carefully.  That’s why the black ovals are a bit crooked. 

Card supplies:

Stamps:  Stampin’ Up!  Blooming With Happiness and Simply Said.
Paper:  Neenah’s Paper Classic Linen (Solar White and Black)
Ink:  Memories Black, Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade (for candle glow)
Miscellaneous:  Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolours, flower punch, oval guide, sponge (for candle glow), silver brads

    These are beautiful! You have an eye though – I never even noticed that Simply Said and Blooming with Happiness looked so similar!

    These are divine!! The “matching” themed background really makes the card I think.

    I really love your creativity and talent! All these cards are just wonderful. But I really love your charming use of the old stamps Blooming with happiness and Simply said in such a new way.
