Cardmaking Paper Flowers

Hello September!

September 10, 2019

Autumn is here, but the weather sure isn’t cooperating! There should be oranges, purples, browns, trees showing their beautiful Fall colors, but so far Florida hasn’t had any crisp days.. yet!

Today’s project is a 6 “x 6 “ card. For the background I used some white texture paste and added just a bit of re-inker to make the soft green. Then spread it over a stencil I have, which adds some dimension. 

The flowers: Back-eyed Susan’s, Love In The Mist and Coneflower went into the Galvanized Bucket (Modascrap Wood Effects Paper) I found a great wooden button at Hobby Lobby for the handle.

For fillers, I used the Frosty Fern, Wheat Sheath and Autumn Leaves.(I brushed a coat of Diamond Glaze on top of the leaves for some shine)
The words are from the “Little Words That Mean A Lot” Stamp Set, and are very apropos here in Florida. We’ve been having rainy days for months! And, of course..there she is…the Lady Bug!

The products I’ve used are listed below. If you’re interested in any, just click on the pictures and you will be directed to the Elizabeth Craft Designs page to complete your order. 

I hope you enjoy this season and are inspired to keep ‘gardening’ year round!

See you next month!

    Good Morning, Nancy!
    It’s so nice to hear of cooler weather, no matter where! It’s 94 here, again, and the humidity is off the charts!
    Thank you for taking the time to respond to my post this morning, and I’m so pleased you’re enjoying my paper gardening as much as I do.

    What a beautiful arrangement. I would love to do things like that, but it’s a bit too intimidating. You do wonderful things! Thank you. ?

      Don’t feel like this is too much. You can do it. I’ve done things like this. It’s like flower arranging. You just add and arrange it all until you like it.

    Good morning Kathy! It is a beautiful day here in northern Indiana, with some dew on the grass blades, mist in the air as the sun burns off the lower temps & warms up the day! But no color to speak of …yet! You have given yourself a break from the endless showers by creating the most beautiful autumn floral arrangement! I never get tired of seeing ur work! Keep up the great creation s! Thank you for the inspiration!
