My First Real Looking Roses

Hello my friends!

February is a special month with respect to the romantic realm. The common expression of love are candy, roses and cards. Unfortunately I can't make candy, so after short hesitation how to impress you, I've decided to make something absolutely new for me - real looking roses. I know, they are not red but, in my mind, they are worthy of a Valentines gift! 

No doubt it was hard work. I'll leave the result of your judgement!




I had a go with five different colours of genuine foamiran, baby pink, white, forest green, olive green and dark green.




One of the most difficult part of the process was to make the stems. I spent hours and hours watching videos and experimenting with different materials. 




The rose leaves are another important segment of a roses creation. You can use a mould to shape them or to draw a lines by hand to gain that natural looking greenery. 



  I hope I achieved a good outcome :-)! 







Thank you for coming around again! 

Wishing you wonderful week! 

See you soon!

Hugs!

Wedding Head Crowns

Hello my dear friends!

I hope that you still remember mu wedding foamiran flowers which were exposed by me in the blog one week ago. It's high time I showed you what I've created with them!
I can say that I'm really pleased with the result and also very proud of myself personally :-)!
There you go! Three dazzling wedding head crowns! Every single piece of them was handmade with lots of love and passion!



It was a long process of cutting, heating twisting and rolling hundreds of mini petals and leaves. I've used several techniques to create these beauties! There is a picture of a
'' how to do'' moment :-)




Every single crown contains six pale pink roses, three rose buds in the same shades, five gypsophila stalks, several mini flowers in white and pale peach and some mini rose and cineraria leaves ... oh, and antique white berries well :-)!




Thanks to the vast amount of flower making accessories and the huge variety of  foamiran in www.crafteezee.co.uk, the process of making them was much shorter! 







I can't exactly say how many hours took me making those stunning crowns but, believe me, every single spent minute was a big pleasure for me!






The most exiting part of the story was when I showed the crowns to the beautiful bride. She was over the moon!!! It's such a satisfaction to see the pure happiness in the girl's eyes!


I hope you like them too!




Thank you for your visit!
See you next week!

Hugs!

A Bird Card

Hello everyone!

Can you imagine how deserted our world would be without those little creatures, birds?
Today I'm here with my new inspiration for Noor Design, a brand new card, which I called a Bird Card!

To create it I've used an absolutely adorable new collection of scrapbook paper Mintay, Birdsong by Karola! This was a love from first sight! Look at this beauties!




The card was  made holus-bolus :-)! 
As you can see there are lots of colourful layers, diverse shades of peach, cream, turquoise, green and Indian red.




The foliage was made using my favorite Fantasy dies Birch Leaves and String of Pearls and Stamens. They are amazing aren't they!




The sentiment came on its own and took place on the upper right corner ;-)




Do you see this enchanting pale pink lace? I adore it! 




Of course, this card wouldn't be mine without my usual foamiran flowers which were added to emphasize its exotic allure! I created them all out of red foamiran by dint of  Fantasy Openwork Rose.








Thank you for stopping by again!
Wishing you a colourful new week!

Take care!
Hugs,

FFF Tutorial

Happy New 2018, everyone!

I love discovering different ways how to use the same die. There is so many potential in one set. Two mounts ago I've shown you how can you make roses from such an amazing Whimsy Stamps Rose Die Set. This is why, today I'm going to demonstrate some other way how to use it and to make those beautiful FESTIVE FOAMIRAN FLOWERS (FFF) :-))))! 



I chose the middle die shape but you also can choose any other it depends how big your flowers like to be. As you can see I cut 6 petals out of blue genuine foamiran (you can choose any other of course).




To make my petals brighter, suitable for my project, I applied white oil pastel on them using piece of kitchen sponge. 




I heated every each as the iron was previously heated on grade 2 (silk)...






... rolled it quickly and stretched in the bottom part of the petal. 


There are some pictures for the next stage of my work,  which are going to show you successively how I stuck the petals.


Finally, I had this beautiful five petals blue flower with this stunning embellishment 'Button Alexis White' in the middle.


Those are some other examples: 





Hope you like them! I would love to see yours :-)



See you soon!

Spring Dreaming Flowers

Happy New 2018!

Wishing you a New Year filled with new Hope, new Joy and new Creative Inspirations!




I'm back today with some really fresh and bright inspiration! There are my enchanting Spring Dreaming Foamiran flowers!




The flowers were made out of different colours foamiran, yellow, pink antique white and peach.




To get this vein petal effect, I've printed them with a Mould Hydrangea Leaf.




The stamens which suited the best to my new foamiran flowers were Matt Cluster Stamens - plum and  wine colours.








I hope you like my latest creation! Thank you for stopping by!
