Mother's day rose bouquet

Ok I orginally posted this first before the other bouquets but only the pic came out, not what I wrote so I'm posting it again. That is why its out of order as you can see, this rose bouquet post, then the  plaque and then the orders I got for the rose bouquets. Oops. Lol. I tried to edit the original posting but no luck.
Anyhow, this is the first bouquet I made using an Ellinee template for the roses. These are all hand cut, inked and put together. Can you say "handmade" lol. No cricut or dies used here. I added a butterfly and put them in my own personal pink bucket for the time being. I will change it out to a different bucket later. I just love love the way they came out. I will be tweaking them a tad and adding ribbon, more butterflies and a tag that says happy mothers day all in a silver bucket. Ok I think I got it right this time. Ha ha. Have a great day!

Mother's Day Plaque

Hi again. I'm posting this Mother's day plaque I made. I didn't just want to have flowers to give to moms but also a keepsake with endearing words that she could cherish. So this is what I came up with.
It's a 7x9 white canvas that I inked/aged with Tim Holtz distress inks and stamped the flourishes. I made the cabbage roses using my Donna Salazar rose dies, inked them and added added pearl centers. I also used my McGill star flower punches for the star flower. I printed out the saying and adhered it to patterned paper, inked it and adhered it to the canvas. It also has a cord that I attached to the back so you can hang it. I think its the perfect size, not too big, not too small. If you didn't want to hang it, you could buy an easel for it to sit on and place it a top of a counter, end table, desk, mantle or where ever. Well I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did. Thanks for visiting. Til next time...

Mother's Day bouquets

Hello there, here are some of the bouquets I made for orders that I got. I made 2 of a mixed color bouquet, an all yellow with a red center and an all pink one. I have another order for an all purple bouquet that I'm working on and will post pics soon. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for visiting.

Silver turquoise necklace

I hadn't made jewelry in awhile so I decided to make a few necklaces.

Up first is a silver and turquoise necklace. I love the stacked rings over the turquoise stone. The pendant is interchangeable too. Love that!

Angel bracelet

Hi all, hope all is well. Things have been busy as usual but good. This weekend I worked on some bracelets that I got orders for.

I made the Angel bracelet. In the first pic I made one adult size which is in the middle and two child size bracelets, which are on either side.

In the second pic, is a child size pink bracelet and two adult size black/clear bracelets. I love the way they came out!!
