Fuchsias


You can tell I just love fuchsias! I have made loads of cards with them on already and couldn't resist colouring the main stamp from my new Fuchsia pack from the Pick of the Bunch collection by Tonic Studios again. These are super quality clear stamps which I drew for Tonic Studios and they stamp really well - a joy to colour!
This is actually quite a small card and I've just added a hint of lilac behind the beautiful doily shape which is one of a new set of really lovely doily dies which are now available from Tonic Studios. I've added one of the little butterflies from the same Fuchsia stamp pack at the top of the card.
The cut out fuchsia has been attached to the card with 3D foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  - great quality little squares which are so easy to remove for use as they are separate on the sheet .

Enjoy your weekend - I'm busy making card samples with the Pick of the Bunch stamps for a trade fair in  Norway and more samples for another flurry of shows on Create and Craft starting on 20th August

Before I go I thought you might like to see part of my little "fuchsia production line".

1.Cuttings taking root in water

2. Rooted cuttings planted up

3. Growing well in their new "homes"

4. Blooming lovely!

I never seem to have enough of these beautiful flowers and always have lots of little cuttings at each stage above (all at the same time!) in my summer house and garden.
