Spikey Flowers - Sneak Peek!

 Little Claire Designs will be on Create & Craft again this Thursday (7 April) at 11am to launch more great stamp sets.  One of the sets will be the owl set which is the current club set and there will also be two more of the 'Room With a View' sets - previews to follow in the next few days!  The fourth set is called 'Spikey Flowers' and I've used this one today to make two cards - I think the designs really suit the current 'clean and simple' trend and I've kept both my cards very simple.  The set includes both floral images I've used plus the sentiment. 

For my first card, I stamped the larger image and layered it on to red card and then stamped the sentiment direct on the base card.  I've added some red nail head gems to finish it off.

For my second card I stamped on to the card base (I'm getting better at doing this!) putting the smaller design in two corners and the sentiment in the middle.  Again I've finished the card with some red nail head gems.

I'd like to enter these cards in the following two challenges:
Less is More - 'a touch of red'
Creative Cottage Challenge - 'white/blank spaces'

  1. Two lovely cards, of the two I think I prefer the first, although I think it would have stood well even without the added gems.
    Thanks for two great cards.
