Ah, pretty...

Hi, fellow crafters.

I have my last lot of Wisteria projects to show you today.

And what I did that I didn't expect?

I used the chipboard shapes to decorate the middle of these flowers. It was one of those things I didn't plan for, but it all made sense at the time, and onto the flowers they went. And they're big flowers and they needed something punchy in the middle.

I used regular Stickles in the middle of some of the flowers for some sparkle and accent. Crystal is my favourite.

And for even more glitter, I sprayed the whole thing with Pearl Glimmer Mist. So fun. Found it hard to stop spritzing once I started!

(The link I've provided will take you to the Tattered Angels site. There's quite a few Glimmer Mist how-to videos on the site. Also trouble shooting etc. Might be helpful for you. Swirl, don't shake!)

Remember you can click on the photos to see them larger.
If you do, please excuse the dust on the chair.
Thank you.

Took some close-up shots so you could see the Stickles and Glimmer Mist. Can you see the mist? It's subtle, but it's there. Added such a nice touch at the end.

I added Opal Dust to the edge of this card. Glitter, glitter everywhere. If it calls for it, you've gotta add it!

Okay, so there you go. More boxes, more glitter, more flowers, more fun. Hope you enjoyed it all!

The scallops I used were Marvy ones with the big Sizzix scallop die. You might have scallop Nestabilities dies, or scallop punches in other brands. Any of them work and look good. And we like good.

Okay, bye now!


  1. You seems to have great artistic skills. Your blog looks wonderful and paper flowers were awesome.

  2. I love these flowers, Debra, and would surely like to make them soon.

  3. Hi Smita, Glad you like! Another Sizzix die - Scallop Circle. It's a goodie.
