Flowers Times Two

I got the Florals Embellished cartridge this weekend.  I couldn't wait to get started with it. 

For the first  4.25 X 5.5 card (with the orange oval) I chose the flower on page 37.  It is cut at 4.25 inches.  I added some purple gems to the center.   The oval was cut from the Art Philosopy cartridge from page 42 and is cut at 5 inches, then I ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder.
I added the ribbon and decided it needed something else.  So, the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch to which I added some black marker and then sprinkled with Stampin' Ups Dazzling Diamonds.
I am going to enter it at
Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge # 65 -flowers.
Cardz TV Challenge #108- May Day (flowers)
Critter Sketch Challenge #115 - Flowers
For the 2nd card I chose the flower from page 21.  It reminds me of a Passion Flower.
This flower is also cut at 4.25 inches. For the center I added a Megan Elizabeth Sparkle Lightz in a color called Lush which is a very deep purple and is in the 8mm size.  I added some Stickles and placed it on an Action Wobble .  I used my Martha Stewart Trellis Loop Trim punch for the "ribbon" at the top.  I felt it needed another element so I added a couple of the butterflies with the Martha Stewart punch.

  1. these are both adorable, luv the colors and glad you played along with us at Mojo Monday!

    enjoy *~*

  2. Pretty cards, wonderful job with the challenges, thanks for joining CCC!

  3. Your cards are beautiful Cindy! Love 'em. I always think about getting that cartridge and then discount it because of the "million" pieces it seems to have for each image. Is that the case?--Pat N.

    1. Thanks Pat. I cut both of these at 4 1/4 inches and I did not have any issues with small pieces. It would probably be more difficult at a really small size, but there are so many layers that you wouldn't have to use them all at a small size.
      I waited a while to get this cartridge also, but it was offered on Cricut Rewards and I got it there. It has some really pretty designs on it.
      Thanks again,
      Cindy :)
