Make a wish!

Hi there!

I dreamed this card last night when I couldn't sleep... and just needed to see if I could make my dream come true this morning... and it actually turned out the way I hoped it would! A great way to start the week 😀

I used 2 sets from Uniko Studio

~ The tea cup from the I love tea set.
~ Flowers and sentiment from Pure florals cosmos.

 I stamped the cup on the card base with Versafine black on watercolor paper using my Misti , and made a little incision to place the largest flowers partially inside the cup.

I then stamped the smaller flowers and used my Pix scan mat to 'fussy cut' the flowers with my Silhouette.
Finally added color using my Zig markers and adhered the flowers to the card with small squares of foam tape.

Playing at the following challenges:

Uniko studio ~ Spring

CAS water colour ~ Spring

The flower challenge  ~ Anything goes with flowers

CASualfridays ~ Off the edge


Thanks for visiting me today!

  2. What a fantastic design, Hannelie!! Isn't it great when things in our head work out for a design??!! Love the beautiful spring flowers cascading from the cup --- so sweet. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour! xx

  3. What a wonderful dream, Hannelie! And your dream came true! Truly cause for celebration! Love the cascading flowers! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Watercolour!

  4. You already know I LOVE this card, beautiful colouring, composition and use of Uniko stamps :) It's funny that you dreamt of these stamps as last night I was thinking of the tea cup and flowers as I was drifting off to sleep. Yours however is much more stunning than what I was thinking of doing! Thank you so much for sharing such a creative delight and joining in on the Uniko Challenge. Hugs Bev x

  5. Lovely card. Those flowers are so pretty!

  6. I see your vivid imagination has been at work again. Pretty, pretty! And one layer. Nice!

  7. As I sit and enjoy my herbal tea on a rainy day I am now thinking of pretty cherry blossoms cascading from my cup. TFS your dreamy card and dreams my friend. So pleased you were able to join us at CAS Watercolour. Hugs

  8. Love all the soft texture on your card. Fabulous as always Hannalie!

  9. This is beautiful!! I LOVE how you have the teacup on an angle, emptying all those flowers. I might have to CASE this using some stamps I have!! GORGEOUS design!!

  10. Don't you just love it when an idea comes out as you envision it? Doesn't happen often enough for me, but this card is perfect in every way.

  11. This is gorgeous, I love how the flowers cascade down. I often find card ideas spinning in my head when I am trying to sleep!

  12. I quite often dream up card designs in my sleep or in the shower or when walking the dog. And I can't make anything else until I've tried it out!! So glad you thought up this design, its fantastic and the flowers are such a beautiful colour. So fab to see you again at The Flower Challenge!!

  13. Jij hebt mooie dromen! En het is weer een super mooie kaart geworden! Leuk om de bloemen uit het kopje te laten stromen! Doet me denken aan een heerlijke Jasmijnthee die ik hier nog heb staan; iets voor strakjes...
    Raar dat het bij jou regent; hier schijnt het zonnetje (maar het heeft wel geregend :) ! Gelukkig zal deze week wat droger worden; dan zie je meer mensen met een glimlach buiten; hou ik wel van!
    Groetjes, Gerrina

  17. This is an amazing card. I just love the way you slipped some of the petals "inside" the cup. The delicate colors of the flowers adds a wonderfully feminine element to an already fabulous design.
