Peach Bauble Blossoms

Morning everyone!  Bauble Blossoms for  today!  I haven't shown anything using these dies yet, I don't think.  I have to be honest and say that I did not get on with these dies straight away.  They took a bit of playing with before I was happy with them.  That being said, I do think they are a very pretty flower and found them very relaxing to sit and make.  For me, these dies gave better results when I cut two of the flower strips and offset them on top of each other and rolled them.  I was struggling with the spacing a bit when used singularly and my petals were stacking up on top of each other.  When I offset them to begin with, then rolled, I liked the way the flowers came out better.  I used both of the bauble blossom set one and set two for the flowers on this card.  I liked the mixed assortment of the styles in my wreath.  I picked two shades of peach for the flowers and white for the centres.  I first embossed the top half of my card with the Flora embossibility folder for texture.  I stamped the bottom corner with my sentiment with a black archival ink pad.  I used a piece of the peach fizz vintage ribbon as a separator between the two sections.  I added a messy bow using the peach and some white vintage ribbon and topped it with a fancy pearl button and a couple of stick pins.  I made eight of the bauble blossom flowers, using the various styles and arranged them in a wreath fashion on the top of my card.  I pierced the edges of the card to finish it off and give it a nice frame.  I hope you like it!  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, not my favourite style but the flowers look pretty, I do like the embossed background. Good job though!Happy crafting!

Jan.moogie said...

A different card Sue not a fan of wreaths but as wreaths go this is very pretty. I think I would like to see these flowers mixed with those Asters with swirls in a corner presentation which means I shall have to buy them of course. Thanks for the inspiration Sue.x

scottish crafter said...

Hi Sue have been waiting to see if you would show this card. Saw this on C&C and loved it. Now it's even more impressive seeing it in detail. I do find it awkward to get a good flower with these dies but will try doubling them up.

Jenny L said...

Hi Sue,
WOW, this is a fantastic card. Love everything about it. I see you have used one of those lovely pearl buttons I very much admire. I keep looking for them in the shops. Or were they bought in the states? I have tried making them with small pearls. They turn out fine but not as nice as yours. Hope your feeling much better now.
Have a great crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Sue, know exactly what you mean about these dies, I have tried loads to get them to look right and have given up. I will tr to off set them and maybe use paper rather than card. I must say I like a wreath and shall be using a version of a wreath in my Xmas cards, love the colour combo as well. In fact I love It all!!! Best wishes, Lesley x

'morning, yes I too had a blonde moment with the dies when I was showing a friend them but I must have found them on your blog o a previous card.... and Voila, light bulb moment!!

Morning Sue love this card i have made something similar for a christmas wreath a few years ago but not from dies cut flower. love the colours and the bauble blossom dies are wonderful and diverse. loving that button you have used xx hazel

Nanna Tina said...

Hi Sue
WOW WOW WOW, I love this card I have these dies on my wish 'NEED' list, but it has given me an idea to use my poinsetta dies to make wreath cards for my 'special' christmas cards, thanks for the great idea.
Love Tina x x x

Jane said...

I love the card, I had the same trouble with this die the flower just didn't look right no matter what I did, so I put two of them together like you did. Hay presto

Maryann said...

Some lovely colors and I love the embossed background too, but else it´s not quite my style, I muat admit, but hey we also need to make something for everyone, so we can´t be thrilled about it all, I think, but I really love some elements in it thoug, that´s for sure. And I´m still sure you´re one of the most talented crafters on earth Sue.
have a wonderful week-end ahaead and lots of fun.

Marion said...

What a lovely card .I too had problems with this die and put it to one side and not used since,might try it again .
Marion

Astrid Maclean said...

Have not tried these dies, but thanks for the tip. Christmas wreath sprang to my mind too when I saw it, but these muted tones are pretty too.

Lacelady said...

Well even if you aren't happy with the flowers, I think they turned out very well. I like wreath designs on A5 cards, they look more squashed on square cards to me.

Crafty Kaz said...

nzillingworth said...

Hi Sue
yes had the same problem rolling the the dies. My first lot came out triangular. lol but found if you let them unwind then stick came out better. use piece of card on the bottom of them to hold in place.
Love today's card colour and design. Good idea to mix the ribbon just finishes it off lovely . 10 out of 10 card again for me.
Brill work.

Good Morning Sue,
I really like this card. When I saw it on C&C I did my version, using the flower dies I had. I was pleased with the results and have used it a few times since. Great in Pink/Red as a Ruby Wedding Card.
Hope you are feeling better now
Have a Great Day

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this card is as 'pretty as a peach'. I agree with Lara B, a garland of flowers sounds so much nicer and more appropriate than a wreath. I love the freshness of the peach and white and as always your bow is great.

Love it!! absolutely beautiful I love the colours - they were my wedding colours - so this brought back lots of happy memories. Sue, thank you very very much. I dont think of the flowers as being a "wreath" but more a pretty flower circle for the fairies.
A FANTASTIC CARD!!!!!!!!!!

lindyloo12 said...

Now that is what I call a really stunning card, your efforts with the flowers were really worth the effort Sue and the colour scheme is just beautiful.

Planetsusie said...

Really really pretty Sue! I was also having trouble with the flower petals stacking up and I found I was making the centre 'roll' too tight. I also used the two flower strips and am finding it much better. I love these colours together and am sooo envious of the bow embellishment.

Hugs Sue Pass xx

Hope your health is still improving

Good Morning Sue,
I absolutely love this card! Admire your honesty in sharing your difficulty with these dies - and your diligence in solving the problem. Feeling confident enough to buy them now!
Hope you are well. Have a great weekend,

Cornish Emma said...

I also found that one strip just looked odd so tried the tip you gave on C+C about rolling 2 together and it gives a much more appealing look. Love the choice of colours on this card.

Hi Sue
I have these dies and kept getting them into a triangular shape and on top of each other so gave up in the end. But now you have described a way to use them with stunning results I am going to have a 'play' with them again so fingers crossed I will get them to look like yours. Thanks for the ideas

Hi Sue,
I have been struggling to make these dies look like yours on c.&c l have tried so many things to make them look half decent. So I am over the moon with your recipe. It knocks our confidence when spellies do not work as expected because they give such good results. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Lol Ann

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Wow what a lovely card!! I saw this on cc and have been hoping you would showcase it here. I think the idea of making flowers into a garland is just brilliant. How do you think of all these wonderful ideas? I love the look of both sets of the flower dies and they are another must have. Thankyou for another wonderful card love Tres x x x

You can get more layers and embellishments and textures and "lovely bits" on a card than anyone else I've seen. The layered flowers are really nice. The bow, of course, is usually what my eye goes first. Then, I force myself away and look at the rest of the card. ;-)
