While we were on our bus tour/cruise to Bermuda my Mum celebrated her 70th birthday. She has many lung problems so she cannot have real flowers. I created these Gerbera daisies and took them with us so she could have a bit of a celebration. I used the tutorial by Shelly Bohan to create the flowers and the video by Sharon White to make the basket/vase they are in.
The colors I used are Pink Pirouette and black, Pear Pizzazz, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry. the stems and caylex of the flower are Old Olive.
The basket/vase is created from the petal cone die, Pacific Point, Beyond the Garden DSP, Four Frames Stamp set, Decorative label punch and the dotted scallop ribbon border punch.
The other flowers are all the same color but this one has two colors. They are very realistic in real life.
Hope you enjoyed this and that you will try them your self.
I work with seniors in a group of three Special Care Homes, as the nurse manager. I have worked with seniors for the last 16 or so years in the community and assisted living residences.
I have been married to my best friend, Lonnie, for 32+ years, and together we have two adult sons, Sean and Jeremy and a grand daughter, Mia, who keeps us all on our toes even though she lives in Montreal.
I have always loved creating with my hands especially with needle and thread and more recently with papercrafts. I love the diversity of it all.
I signed up as a hobby demo with Stampin' Up in February/March of 2009 during Salebration. I really love the quality of the products.
