Garden of Flowers

Wow, how did it get to Thursday already? Time really does fly when you're crafting your lil socks off and this week, I have crafted for England!! lol

But all this crafting does mean one thing...I will have so much to share with all my lovely blogging buddies and I can't wait to show you everything I've made! But in the meantime, here are my penultimate share of cards from the Clarity shows and I really hope that you've enjoyed all the cards, so far. I can't thank you all enough for every single one of the comments that you've left me...I know I say this a lot but I'm so thankful to have such wonderful friends and followers!

This first card is all about flowers and the main feature was Clarity's frame corner stamps and I used it in conjunction with one of those fabulous Alium stamps.
I embossed the background, using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then added a handmade paper rose...I did say, it was all about the flowers! :)

For this second card, I wanted to try and capture the essence of one of the most beautiful and elegant periods in time...Art Nouveau and I was particularly influenced by the work of Alphonse Mucha. I really hope that I did his work and Barbara's stamps justice...

Sorry, if some of the photos are a little dark but when I took them, it was a dull, dark rainy day!

Well, I'm off to grab a coffee and then see what I can tick off my "to-do" list...I really think it seems to be getting longer instead of shorter! Either that or it's me getting slower...

I'll see you all tomorrow with the final card and I think I might have saved the best for last!! :)
Love Emma

P.S. I promised to let you know the times of Kuretake's shows on Create & Craft tomorrow and they will be on at 2:00 and 4:00. Hope you'll be able to watch but if you can't, don't worry I'll definitely be sharing all my samples next week.

As usual, your cards are truly beautiful. I love the way you used that corner stamp with the allium. Those corner stamps are great and I have taken a couple of them, stamped them, scanned the result and played with them on the computer to change the size and the writing to suit what I need. I have already set the DVD to record the Kuretake shows tomorrow as we have visitors at that time - looking forward to seeing your samples on that.

Another Allium card, Emma. I just love that stamp and everything you do with it.
Your Lady is very much in the Mucha style. I love his paintings and have a vase of the winter lady that I bought in Austria. It's just beautiful.

I agree with Stephanie-Emma, your style is so distinctive that I know immediately which are yours!! And your flowers just get better and better :).

Love them both, and the colour schemes work really well.

Much love,
