Three Floral Cards

Enjoying some time finishing off a few more cards this afternoon.... after finishing off the latest Hexie Motifs for a CAL that I've joined... 

These are this weeks motifs

and these are last weeks.

I haven't made hexagons before so it's an interesting project

Now for my cards.... I'm playing along with four challenges with these

Using a new stamp from  STAMPlorations Blossom Spray #5, stamped with Versafine smokey grey and watercoloured with Distress Oxides - kitsch flamingo, picked raspberry, twisted citron, mown lawn, trimmed the panel and attached to a white card.  Stamped and black embossed sentiment from Happy Little Stampers Dandelion Wishes set, on green card and attached with foam dots.

I used a new stencil for the flowers on this slimline card... Bloom Collage stencil from ARTplorations,  and blended over Distress Oxides... carved pumpkin, fossilised amber, mustard seed.  Then added some mustard seed DO stencilled dots with Kaisercraft Spotty stencil.   I die cut a large Birthday from yellow card with CUTplorations die and attached to a black card strip with a mini stamped 'wishes' from Hero Arts Petite Birthday set.... assembled the elements on an orange card

I die cut the elements in white card... the lattice is from Uniquely Creative and the flowers are Sizzix - Wildflower Stems #1.  Watercoloured the flowers with Distress Oxides - fossilised amber, carved pumpkin, ripe persimmon, twisted citron, rustic wilderness.  Chose a patterned paper from my stash and attached the elements with a stamped and clear embossed sentiment - Happy Little Stampers - Fun birthday sentiment set.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, have a Wonderful Weekend

Cheers Robyn 




  1. Love those hexie's, Robyn. It's ages since I did any crochet. Your cards are beautiful - love them all, but most of all the die cut flower

  2. Your hexagons are awesome, Robyn!! All three flower cards are fabulous. The carnations are so pretty ... pink and green is a perfect colour combination. The bold design from your bright orange stenciled flowers is great on the slimline card. The last card (my fav!) is beautiful. I love that dotty paper and how you've picked up the colour of the orange dots to create your beautiufl daisies. The flowers are so pretty over the lattice die. Great work!! xx

  3. I love the colors on your slimline card - so happy. All your cards are beautiful and so is your crocheting

  4. You certainly are catching up with Birthday cards. I would be hard put to choose a favorite but if I have to then it would be the orange daisies on the polka dot background. I am admiring your crochet hexagons. I am pea green with envy over you crocheting skills - please tell me I will get there some day!!!!!
