Twisted Tuesday ~ The Color Blue

Good Morning!  Here's my card for today's Twisted Tuesday challenge.  This week's challenge is a color challenge and our cards/ projects needed to be mostly blue in color. The Twist ~ Try to only use one other color besides blue.

I always wanted to try and make some paper roses and today's challenge I thought was the perfect opportunity.  I made blue roses for my blue card.  The other color I used was certainly celery green for my leaves.  Hubby saw my card and said I should post a video on how I made these roses and so I did.  I hope you like my video; I'm getting better at them (I think). 

Here is a close up photo of my card; I put some glitter along the edges of the roses.


And here is my video!

Another Flower Card~ Blossom Flower Punch


I wanted to try making a flower using the blossom punch so this card above is another card with a paper flower.  I think this flower looks more like a carnation than a rose because of the scallop edges.  This flower is made the same way that I made the roses.  Be sure to check out my video above to see how I made them.

I added some faux stitching along the top part of my black card stock and I added a row of scallop paper piercing onto my white background (just above my black card stock).

I hope you liked my cards today!  Thanks for stoping by, make it a great day!

These are such wonderful, classy cards. The flowers are so decorative and I love the striped paper you've used as background. No need for images or bling on these ones!

I really enjoy following your blog--these flowers are SO cute & easy--my teenage daughter went & disappeared after seeing the tutorial & when I found her she was making these in all different colors/patterns--she's made some with stripes, some with polka dots (small ones) some solid, some zebra--they are really great! Thanks so much for sharing!!
