Thanks a bunch!


This is my first go using this set from Lisa Horton Crafts
and I love it.
A few mishaps but I am really happy with my results.
I went a bit mad with the colours lol but it is a nice
splash for Spring/Summer.

The set is called Sunflower and Roses.
You get a set of stencils and then use a coordinating die
and finally run it through with the matching embossing folder.
The sentiment is from another LH set,
Blossoming Lily.
I added some free stencilling underneath the die cut
to add some volume. You just need to keep checking
where your finished flower will be and play around with your card.
I did trim off some of the flowers to get it right up into
the corner and leave room for my sentiment.
The base card has a hammered effect.
The ink pads are all from SU and are called
bermuda bay, real red, evening evergreen, lemon lime twist
and bumblebee. I was a bit heavy handed with the
evening evergreen but lesson learnt.

I would like to enter this into

We have thunder storms coming and going at the minute
and lots of rain. Keeping everything crossed for nice weather for my
Grandson's First Communion tomorrow!!
Have a lovely weekend and thanks so much for all your
lovely comments.

Pinky, your card is super luscious! I love the look of layered stenciling, and your use of "fill" stenciling on the card base really gives your card dimension!! Thank you for sharing your card and talents with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!!! -Donna

Praying for a sunny day for you all Pinky..
This is such a beautiful card, I love the bright colours and the stencilling makes all the difference doesn't it.
I only ever bought one of Lisa Hortons EF and it bent so badly I can't use it now, it made me really sad because its such a gorgeous design.xx

Your card is just so pretty, I tried to find Lisa Morton Crafts online. Would it be possible for you to put the link on here, since I couldn't find it! Thanks so much!
