MMM - Favourite Flower

It's Make My Monday time once more and this month we have our lovely Caz hostessing the weekly challenges.
This week she would like us to make projects portraying our FAVOURITE FLOWERS. Caz's favourite I believe are Poppies and she has made some really beautiful cards in the past using poppy images. Me on the other hand - well I can't decide. I do genuinely love all flowers and tend to 'swither' according to occasions or seasons. For example in Spring I go all out for Daffodils and in late Summer I adore the orange Marigolds with their furry brown centres. For my birthday - June, my Peonies are always in flower in the garden.
Of course I have my favourite for Christmas too and that would be the Poinsettia - like the one I have made for my card today, please take a look

So using a piece of Crumb Cake card stock I stamped a border of Holly and Ivy and I also stamped the sentiment directly on to the card. My main Poinsettia flower was stamped using one of the leaves from my French Foliage set and some Cherry Cobbler and Lucky Limeade ink. each petal and leaf was stamped separately and cut out and then arranged to make the flower.

Stamps: French Foliage, Christmas Blessings. Made for You
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Poppy Parade (marker - retired), Gumball Green, Lucky Limeade (marker)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Other: Yellow Gems.
(Don't forget to take a look in the top tab if you would like to order any of the above current items. There is loads more to see in the catalogue too - there's a link in the side bar).

Please do pop over to the blog to discover what the DT's favourite flowers are and I will see you soon - Jacqueline xx


  1. I just love how vibrant your poinsettia is Jacqueline and what a beautiful border too. I'm like you - I just like flowers, any flowers! Vicky x

  2. Hi Jacqueline! A stunning Christmas Card! The poinsettia and leaves are so realistic with all the veins in each petal and leaf. I really like how you added a border around the outer edges of the card too! Bravo! Best wishes, Yvonne

  3. This is so pretty on crumb cake. Love how the colours pop. x

  4. I LOVE the way this turned out! I admired this technique last year when you first did it, but it looks amazing on top of kraft! And I adore your stamped border, too! So pretty! :)

  5. A real stunner. Love the poinsettia and the leaves make perfect flower petals.
