Pink Camellias

Good Morning! I’m back with a card to share with you today. It’s soft, it’s fresh and it just makes me smile. I hope it brings a smile and ray of sunshine to you as well! 

I’ve used Spellbinders’ Layered Poinsettia dies to make the flowers and leaves. I especially love the buds. I’m going to be playing with these dies a lot!! As usual, shopping links are provided at the bottom of this post.

I’ve angled the card to show you a bit of the dimension of the blooms and buds. I used an open passe-partout brass stencil (EH 1820) for the frame on the design. Proverbs 3:5 (this Verve stamp can be purchased at the Stamp Simply Ribbon store) was stamped on the base layer. Three buds were tucked in on the right side of the arrangement as well as placed on the upper right corner.

I used Memories ink pads in Soft Rose and Dahlia on the flowers and Pine Green on the leaves. The verse was stamped with Stampin’ Up!’s Chocolate Chip ink pad. A few twigs and baby’s breath complete the design.

The buds are my favorite! I’m going to attempt making gardenias with these dies next. 

Tools I use for optimum results in making flowers and embossing leaves:

Embossing Pad A5

Embossing Tool– Extra Small (for leaf veins)

Embossing Tool – Small Ball (for small flowers, leaves and butterflies)

Embossing Tool – Large Ball (for mid-size flowers and leaves)

Embossing Tool – Extra Large Ball (4.5mm) (for large flowers and leaves)

Embossing Tool – Extra Large Ball (6mm) (for large flowers and leaves)

Supplies Used:

Paper: Carnation White, Moss Green, Pale Pink, K&Co La Romance

Ink:  Dahlia, Soft Pink, Pine Green (Memories Ink Pads)

StencilEH 1820 Open Passe-Partout (A Touch of Grace – Paper Boutique)

DiesLayered Poinsettia (Spellbinders)

Accessories:  Grand Calibur, Foam Tabs (frame), Craft Knife, Baby’s Breath, Twigs, Tacky Glue.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I wish you a wonderful day!

    Hi Jerri!

    It’s a long time since I visited and I am so glad I did. Your card is magnificent. I adore those flowers and the embossed frame work is gorgeous. To think you made these flowers with the Spellbinder Layered Poinsettia die. Really, really beautiful. I love how you colored the flowers and leaves. It looks to me like you used the Poinsettia die for the leaves too!!!
    I so want to make those flowers.
    Hugs Maz

    This is magical Jerri. Cream and pink is my favourite colour combination and camellias are one of my favourite flowers. Some varieties are blooming “over here” just now and you are so right, they really do put a smile on one’s face.

    Thank you Jerri!

    Oh Jerri your card truly put a big smile on my face this’s stunningly beautiful..the camelias are just the prettiest I’ve ever seen. I adore the colours you have chosen and those buds are just so cut. How I wish I could purchase some of that tiny Baby’s Breath over here, but have tried and tried in vain.
    Well done my friend you are certain a star that shines in this wonderful craft.

This card is fit for a gift to a very lucky bride and groom. How do you cut out those passe partouts stencils so perfectly? Every time I try it I make a mess and vow not to try it again. Hugs to you Jerri.

    Give me a break, Jerri! That is … I don’t have an adjective. Beautiful, gorgeous, inspiring, unbelievably fabulous. I don’t know, but it is just the prettiest thing I will probably see all day. Thank you sooooo much for being back and posting these delicious creations of yours again.

  35. Wendy says:

    Oh wow Jerry this is georgeus! I am so glad to see you are back blogging again, i have soo missed your stunning work
    I would love to have a go at this card if thats ok with you?
    Love the choice of colours and the flowers and buds that you have made.
    Wendy x

  36. Heather says:

    I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to see you back in action – I’ve missed you!
    This past week has been a busy-blur but seeing your delightful creations as I sat down today has truly brought a smile to my heart. It was this time last year that I sat at my dad’s bedside making – then proudly showing him – my teeny flowers. He passed shortly after, but I know he marveled at seeing my teensy buds (as a child, I used to sit on his knee making minute people out of plasticine. I still adore miniature anything).
    Your choice of colour, flower and design is always inspiring. With spring in the air, I now feel it’s time to get back to paper (I tend to embroider during the cold months).
    Something that surprised me (from your last post) is that you paint the parchment before embossing. Not sure why, but I always thought it was the other way around. The paint doesn’t crack at all?
    As always, thank you for sharing your gems with us. I look forward to seeing more!

    Paper Hugs,

  39. Jerri:

    This card is absolute beautiful, the verse, the frame and of course the flowers, that soft rose and all the dimension are breathtaking. love them so much. I’ve try making flowers with many spellbinders, but it never ocurred to me to use this poinsettia layered… You are a truly creative artist!!!

  40. Gwen says:

    Amazing !!! So glad to have you back posting your wonderful creations to feast my eyes on. God bless you.

  41. Mary Gutierrez says:

    omg..I’m ashamed of myself because I bought poinsetta spellbinders in November and didn’t get a chance to use it. But now I don’t feel so bad..there is something else I can make with the die…I must try making these camelias. Exquisite card Jerri.

  42. Paula Gale says:

    O M G.

    This card is exquisite. I cannot tell you enough how much I love this card – I even got my husband to come and look at it while he was in the other room watching sport on TV. He agreed with me (well, as much as a husband is interested in cards and paper flowers!!). On the other hand i’m just awe inspired by these and wondered if you would mind if I used this card as inspiration for the mothers day cards and birthday cards i’m about to embark on doing.

    These flowers really are you at your best. Thanks for sharing.


  43. Jerri these flowers are beautiful, it is lovely to be able to use the Poinsettia Die for flowers other than Christmas .

    You are a marvel at taking these flower dies and making them into so many different beautiful flowers. They all look exquisite.
    I love the daisy parchment card. I think my painting techniques will need a brush up after seeing this.

  45. Jean says:
