Good Saturday morning. I have a floral project to share with you today made using Dee’s Distinctively Bell Floral 2 set paired with the Floral Leaf Set 4 and Bell Floral Stem 1 and framed using the Sizzix Ornate Oval over the embossed layer made using the Corners and Lattice set.
I started by cutting out the frame, bell flowers, stems and leaves. I embossed the white background layer and attached to the card base. I attached the frame with mounting tape. The bell flowers were cut using white cardstock and I colored them with violet 470.5 PanPastel and a mini applicator. I formed them lightly with my stylus and molding pad. Although the leaves are already scored I scored lightly with the leaf tool on the leaf pad to add dimension.
I attached the bell flowers and leaves to the stems with Crafter’s Pick glue alternating to create a natural looking stem of flowers. I really love how soft and flowing the flowers look. I attached the arrangement to the card base with mounting tape and finished with a multi loop bow. Here’s a closer look.
The flower colors is deeper than the frame and at first it troubled me a little but the more I look at it the better I like it. These flowers just scream old-fashioned vintage to me.
I did it again! I opened my brand new order from Ellen’s this morning and realized I accidentally ordered two of the new Poppystamps Bailiwick Background. I’m sure Ellen would let me return it but I think it is lots more fun to share with you. Leave me a comment by Thursday, Jan 16 at 5:00 pm to qualify for a random drawing. Good luck!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
Your bellflower card is just beautiful Kittie! Thank you for being generous and giving away your extra die – I thought it was just me who bought two of something I like by mistake!
I love your work! It’s such an inspiration. Thank you for the opportunity to win a die.

Kittie, the bell flowers are gorgeous, but then everything you do is gorgeous and that is an understatement. I would give my right arm to have you here in Denver so I could take classes from you. I wait for each and every blog post you make with rapt anticipation. You are such a fabulous artist and Ellen is so lucky to have you designing for her. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with all of us. If you would be interested in coming here to teach, I would love to gather students for you from this area. I’m sure we would have a sell-out crowd wanting to take the classes.
Love the purple!! Your cards are always my favorites – wish I could have all the dies you have. 😉 Thanks for the chance to get one!
I just love the dimension in your cards. They have really inspired me to make better use of my dies and not be afraid to layer, layer, layer!

This card is so beautiful! It has me thinking of spring!
Kittie, your card is amazing and beautiful at the same time. I love the feel of it, yes, vintage for me also! I would enjoy using the die so much and appreciate the chance of winning it. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for all your inspiration!
Oh Kittie, you are such an enabler. Love your beautiful card today. I received a set of Pan Pastels for Christmas so I’m visiting all your blog posts that use them. You are such a great teacher, I’m hoping it will help me. Thanks so much for a chance to win. Love dies!
Kittie…this has to be my favorite (other than all the white cards you made)…it’s GORGEOUS! Dee’s dies are fussy, but wonderful results – Great job!!!!
Thanks too for a chance to win…this is a lovely die and I can picture all sorts of uses…keeping my fingers crossed!
This is just gorgeous! Your work is exquisite and you have really inspired me to branch
out and and try some cards like yours. How special for someone to receive such a masterpiece. I have started purchasing Spellbinders and have fallen in love with them. Thank you for your inspiration!
Such a stunning card! The flowers and leaves do have lovely vintage look to them! So pretty! The background is beautiful too! So inspiring!
Thank you for the chance at the Baliwick Background candy! Thank you mostly though, for the inspiration you send to my email box almost every day. A lot of the background ideas for my stamped cards come from using your techniques.
I would love to win the Poppystamps background die, but more importantly, I would like to say how much I enjoy your blog and how much I get out of your creations. You inspire me with every posting ~ I loooove your work! Oh, and the darker purple on the bell flowers is perfect to me. I really like the card with the flowers standing out/apart from the frame. Oh, and another thing . . . do you think you’ll ever make it to Violettes to teach a class? I know of at least a gazillion people who would love to learn from you (in person!). You are the very best and thank you for sharing your creativity with us!!
wow Kittie, your card is simply gorgeous! I always admire your work greatly….and the detail and colors here are beautiful. Thank you for the oppurtunity to win the die plate…it looks like it would be a lot of fun to play with !
And yet another lovely creation from you–simple, elegant, beautifully proportioned. You keep producing so many quality pieces and always include great directions with unexpected tips. Thanks for sharing your talent. I appreciate it.
Dear Kittie, How thoughtful of you to order duplicates so that we have a chance to win. I, for one, appreciate it very much! Love this purple card and those flowers are wonderful. You have such an eye for beautiful cards!
Hi Kittie, you have made me the happiest gal this morning, I love purple and these flowers are gorgeous and I have the die and I know that they took a lot of time. You are amazing with your talent. Just keep it coming and I’ll keep hoping that I can someday create beautiful flowers like this.
Good afternoon, Kittie, MY!MY! this is fantastically gorgeous. the colors are elegant,
Vintage with the spark of royalty. …thanks for sharing, and thanks for the offer of blog candy, a shared blessing to us…..have a good day.
Another gorgeous card by one of my favorite card-makers! The colors are probably my favorite combination,I use them a lot together, and, oh, how I would love that die … thank you for sharing! I can’t see what’s next on your blog.
I am glad I ‘m not the only one out there, who accidentally orders the same thing twice!! Thanks for the chance to win it! Your card is absolutely amazing! Love the purple flowers!
This card is just beautiful! The bell flowers are a fabulous addition.
So glad I am not the only one who occasionally manages to order two of the same die! 😉
Another beautiful dimensional card – while not as to my taste as your amazing scenes, the attention to details is lovely and the multi-looped bow beautifully tops of your paper creation!
What a lovely card, Kittie!
I love the lavender color, the frame and the gorgeous bell flowers! A wonderful combination.
Kittie, you are very kind to share your extra background……Thank you! Eva.
Your card is awesome! I love how you gave more dimension to the leaves. The flowers look so natural because of your coloring. I love the whole style of the card.
Gorgeous card Kittie! Love your choice of colours – such an elegant spray of flowers.
Gosh, I can’t believe the things you create with all the diecuts. These flowers are so unique and beautifully placed. You are the gallery/blog I go to when it comes to using diecuts. You really work magic!! Hugs and keep them coming!!!
Hi Kittie, what a gorgeous card. Purple is my favorite color, so it especially appeals to me. I seem to order duplicate Copic markers, so I know the feeling of duplicates.
Beautiful card! Love your blog.
Gorgeous card Kittie, love the colors.
Hi Kittie, your cards are outstanding. Today you are using my favorite color, purple! You are so generous to give your extra die away. That is very thoughtful. Thank you for sharing your artistic talent.

Kittie, I absolutely love you cards, they are always so beautiful.
It’s so funny to read this post today about ordering more than one of something! I do that so often that now when I make an order the gals in my craft group always want to know what extras I ended up with. Seems I get so excited ordering new stuff I forget to check HOW MUCH I am ordering 🙂 They always came in handy for birthday gifts. Now we have decided no more BD gifts so I had better be more careful ordering. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome die.
These flowers are beautiful. Thanks so much for all of your creative ideas. Thanks for the chance to win.
Gorgeous cards. The flowers are amazing. Purple (any shade) is my favorite color. Thanks for the chance to win the pretty background die.

Beautiful card! The flowers are amazing. Thanks for the chance to win your die. 😉
Kitty, these bell flowers and your whole card is gorgeous!!!!! And, I love purple/violets…….favorite color. Buying the whole package. However where did you get that awesome white ribbon. I want that too. If you would just shoot me an email, I would really appreciate it. Oh how I love your cards!!!
Kittie, just when I think your cards can’t get any better, you surprise me! The bellflowers look so real. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cards with us! And thanks for all of the inspiration.
Oh Kittie, Kittie, Kittie!! You sure are keeping me in trouble with my budget! This is such a beautiful card. I love it. I also have duplicates of several dies. Need to resell them so I can keep up with your cards. You make me want every die you use. LOL I think.
You have increased my appreciation of the possibilities using dies, I love them. Your work is beautiful!
Hi Judy, I got the ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Sorry I forgot to post it.

Love the purple and white combination. What you did with it is stunning! Like others I love bell flowers and would love to grow them but the valley in California is just too hot.

Your card is lovely… as usual… and I agree with the comment above about you being ‘hard on the pocketbook’, LOL! I have purchased so many things because of your cards, so I blame you when my hubby asks me why I need ‘that thing’ that arrives at our door!!
Anyway… thanks for all your inspiration and for the chance to win this pretty background 🙂
Kitties how wonderful to buy duplicates and share with us! I look forward to seeing your post everyday & swear I’ve bought most of the dies so I could recreate your masterpiece! My budget is shot & would give you a good laugh. Have a wonderful Sunday
Love the bell flower card. But of course as I have said before I love all of your cards. As brookesixty said we will be broke trying to keep up with you. Just today I wrote down 4 dies I want to get. This sure can be an expensive hobby but it is sure fun and makes you feel good when you get something accomplished. Love to win the candy you are giving away. I’m sure everyone else would tool.
I am a very new guest on your blog, but very impressed of your cards.
This card is georgious and I like it very much. I think it is a lot of work to make those wonderful decorations on your cards. But obviously you have a lot of fun doing this. Beautiful!

I had to laugh when I heard you ordered two of the Bailiwick Background…I do this more than I am proud to say, so glad to hear I am not alone. The name, Bailiwick, intrigued me to see what it was, and check out your post. I love the violet color in these photos but somehow my cards never quite turn out to resemble yours. So I keep trying the diecuts and embossing folders and coloring and hope I get better at them lol

Good luck everyone!!

I really liked this card but then I think I’ve liked every card you have posted! Did you bend the Bell Flowers to make them look 3D? If not, how did you do them?

I placed the flower down on a molding pad and used a large tipped stylus and pushed down several times to form and round the flower. Check out some of my flower tutorials and you will see step by step photos of this process. I hope this helps.

Kittie, your bell flower card is gorgeous, you did that die proud! You amaze me with your creativity and inspire me to try these gorgeous ideas and dies, so thank you for that.
I have loved your cards since I joined your group. I have been saving them all in a folder and you have gotten me hooked on Impression Obsession and Memory Box Dies. I have so many of them now. And now you are using Dee’s dies. I haven’t seen these before but the bell flowers are just great. I will have to look into these. When are you going to start with Tattered Lace. I have a lot of those too. Anyway, I have gotten several duplicates of dies because I haven’t kept my inventory up to date, but I haven’t got the one you are going to give away. I would love to have it.
I always look forward to see what beautiful creation you are sharing with us – and this one is no exception. I had not seen the Dee’s Bell Flowers dies yet, so I’m glad you made me aware of that. I’ll have to go and see what other new dies they have!
