Being thankful at this time of the Year!

Hello my sweet crafty friends :)

Christmas has come, and the air is full of festive joy and cheer! I hope each one is doing well and that you are comfortable with all that is going on around you. Big hugs to those of you who find this time of year difficult for a reason or other xxx

Today I'm sharing with you a Thank you card which I did for Magnolia-cious Store.

The papers which I used for this card is Blueberry Hill by Papermania, and the smaller pieces are from my scrap folder. But the main focus of the card are the Foamiran flowers which I created with the awesome products from the Store. You will find direct links to these at the bottom of this post for you to be easy to find them. 

The sentiment is a clear stamp which a friend of mine had sent me. I inked it with Staz On to get a stark clear image, and I coloured the flowers on the sentiment stamp using Copics. I also created quite some dimension throughout the layers, as you can see from this photo below. 

Isn't just awesome how much teal and pink together, I personally think they do make a wonderful combination! Now onto the flowers...

I inked the whire foamiran with Peacock Feathers Distress inks using the Distress ink tools. Unfortunately I also inked almost all my fingers, and as the ink pad was still practically new (at least I had this thought!) the ink was quite strong and it took me two days to get it off my fingers!! I was really a sight for sore eyes, and next morning I had to receive Communion during mass directly onto my tongue, as I had to hide my hands all through the mass!!! :D 

I tried a list of products to take it off, nothing seemed to work! Now I made a promise to myself to use gloves when I work with Distress ink!!!! :D lol

I also added white stamens to the larger flowers and styrofoam centres to the smaller. But as you can see I covered these with craft glue and silver glitter before using them, leaving them to dry overnight. 

If you have never tried foamiran before, know that you are missing a lot of fun!! It surely takes some time to make multiple flowers, but I think it is VERY worth every minute. I am using the hour or so we spend together in the evening, watching TV or just chilling while I cut or ink my flowers, or do some colouring.

Here is the direct link to these marvellous products, which Shawn has. Also check out the entire Store and there are some new things like Chipboard etc !!! Yikes... which really need some love :) 

I really wish you all the very best, you and your loved ones!!! Sending you all cyber hugs, may the love and peace of Jesus shower you all and keep you safe and loved! xxxxx

Many Blessings
