A Touch of Glamour with Arianna Blooms

June 20, 2016

Welcome back.

I was supposed to be making some masculine cards yesterday but I had to get an idea out of my head and sometimes you just have to let your creativity have a free rein.  I belong to a couple of Facebook groups for cardmaking and this particular embossing folder from All Occasions is a very sought after piece of cardmaking tools.  I managed to get one last year but haven’t had much time to play around with it.  I had seen some gorgeous cards made from it and just had to have a go.





I have used the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamp and die set to make the flowers.

Tutorial for making the flowers.

  1. I have stamped the images onto vellum using the Stampendous Aged Ivory embossing powder which is just gorgeous.  I then turned the images over and using a sponge dauber I have used Memento Toffee Crunch and sponged the colour lightly on the back.  This is what it looks like on the front of the flowers.


2. I then die cut the flowers and using my fingers I squeezed the petals together to create some shape in the flowers.


3.  Using my Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit I pressed down on the centres of each layer and then adhered them together using the Art Glitter Designers Dries Clear glue to put them together.  Some have four layers some have two layers and some are just single.


These flowers look lovely on the Arianna Lace die.


As you can see these are very easy to make and add a lovely touch of glamour to your projects.

Materials used:

Stamps – Arianna Blooms

Dies – Arianna Blooms, Ariana Lace Die

Embossing Folder – All Occasions

Cardstock – Pearlised from Rosies Studio

Paper – Christina Re

Pearls – Stampin Up

Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit

Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive

These flowers look fabulous but are so easy to make.  I hope you have a lot of fun making them.

These cards will be on sale at Gift Hutt shortly once I have made some envelopes to go with them.

Have a great week and Happy Crafting.
