The background to this card is a red geranium pressed onto cream card. The card was coloured using Distress inks Victorian Velvet and Bundled sage. The flower head was stamped using Victorian Velvet and then with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. A ribbon was added and a sentiment, mounted on a nesties scalloped circle die cut.
The second card was a spray of alchemilla mollis, also pressed onto cream card. The card was again coloured with Distress inks, this time using Peeled Paint and Rusty Hinge. A ribbon was added and a sentiment, stamped from Elusive images Tall Trees stamp sheet.

I missed this session, which was led by Lindsey Mason, on QVC day but Lindsey kindly talked me through it at the end of the day and I had a go at home.
The background was made by blending Distress inks, Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans, Bundled Sage and Pine Needles. I then dragged a wet paint brush along the bottom of the card and blotted . Some water was flicked onto the card and again blotted. I created some trees by painting the branches using just a wet brush and stamped the others using Clarity stamps and the two green ink pads. Mountains were suggested by lightly inking the edge of a piece of torn paper and finally Santa was stamped in black to cover a wayward water splodge!
I attended the QVC day on July 1st. The afternoon consisted of a series of make and takes using some of the items that will appear on the shows in the next few weeks. These three cards were made as prescribed: the first from a Kanban kit, the second from Tim Holtz dies in the Big Shot and the third using Martha Stewart punches and Bazill card stock.
