Eileen Hull’s  Fresh Vintage flower die creates wonderful paper flowers, but I had vintage fabric that was just screaming to be use.  I just had to oblige.

The Sizzix© dies cut fabric just as great as they do paper, which allowed me to make these fabulous soft cream flowers with bead centers. 

Not only did I have the honor of working with Eileen’s die, I had the additional pleasure of working with the products of Melissa Frances.   Combining the products of these two great designers allowed me to create a beautiful art piece that is soft, feminine and evokes a feeling of youthful softness.

Once I cut out the floral shapes, I used Cotton Candy #26552
Tulips© Fabric Spray Paint™ by ILoveToCreate® on the tips of each petal.   I applied the paint with a soft paint brush which gave the flowers a delicate look.

Each elements, Eileen's floral die cuts, pink and white tissue garland, the pomp-pomp trim, the gorgeous twisted satin rose, winged resin appliqué and crystals embellishments come together to make this an outstanding piece worthy of the photograph it contains.

Yes, I know we only had to create one project.  When I saw all these wonderful products, two projects immediately flooded my mind and I needed to share both with you.

If you think outside the box, you will find that Eileen’s die can also create these fun little angels. The large flower part becomes the body and the smaller flower section becomes the wings.  I created the first set of wings out of the beautiful Melissa Frances scrapbooking paper and then white velum paper.  

Of course, I use Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue™ to glue everything together.  The yellow and white tissue garland acts as an underskirt for the angels.

  1. Stunning Carol, so romantic, fresh, just lovely!

  2. Love Love Love it all!
    thank you for sharing your art!
    Hugs and Blessings,

  3. Gorgeous decorated wall frame! Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. The photo frame is gorgeous, but those little angels are too too wonderful. (If that's even possible.) I love the thinking outside the box.

  5. Supper Beautiful love the wall hanging and the flowers and the Embeishments are great. thanks for sharing and for the chance to win

  6. Two gorgeous projects. I love that you came up with a totally unique way of using the flower die for angels wings.... they're just divine!

  7. Very sweet and delicate. Thank you for the inspiration!

  8. Just love the "fresh" look - I love vintage, but the pastels give it such brightness. I love seeing vintage done with browns and drab colors.

  9. Very nice arrangements. Really like the color combinations. I also liked how you used the flower die for the angel wings. thank you for another great idea for me and my Big Shot Sizzix machine to try.

  10. It is my experience that those who have not complied with a strict diet are also those who imagine that the psychological rewards could offset the inconvenience of the diet. I’m sure there are isolated cases such as you suggest, but most such individuals would quickly be dissuaded by the many inconveniences associated with dietary avoidance.
