Timeless Irises

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Fridays with Steph. I don't have a new release to share this week but I'd like to showcase these beautiful florals in the Art Kure -Britain in Bloom collection. They make for such elegant and timeless cards and here is mine to share.


All the Art Kure florals fit perfectly with the Spellbinders oval dies. My Irises were colored using Spectrum Noirs (LV1, LV2, LV3; DG2, DG3). I sponged around the Irises with some Distress ink to make the image pop.  The patterned paper I used is from American Crafts and the twine is from Doodlebug Designs. The translucent pearls you see are actually liquid pearls from Viva Decor.

Be sure and join in on all of our Customer Appreciation Giveaways this month!!

Now for the weekly stamp set giveaway!!  This week we are giving away this Art-Kure Small Iris stamp that I used on my project!!  You must be a US Resident to enter to win.  To enter you must be a follower of this blog and leave a comment on this post.  The giveaway ends on Sunday, May 13th at 8pm PST.  Good luck!!

Happy Creating!
