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.


  1. As soon as they picked these up on Sunday I knew they were yours - your flowers are always so beautiful!! Xxx

  2. 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.

  3. I love that Allium stamp so striking. Your cards are always so beautifully put together and I love your flowers. Tracy x

  4. Two more beautiful creations Emma - so clean, fresh and elegant!

    Love Lynda xxx

  5. Beautiful! I do so love your paper flowers Emma - so neat and professional. :)xx

  6. 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.
    Hugs Lisax

  7. Hi Emma, Oh love both these cards. The top one is ace. I have that embossing folder and hated it till I saw your card, it looks brilliant on it!
    Hope all is well with you, and I know Thursday Who stole the rest of the week. Love Hazelxo

  8. 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,
    Helen xxx

  9. absolutely gorgeous cards! I think you succeeded in capturing some of the beauty of a time gone by!
