Heart for a Mum


Winners Badge



Whoops! I did it again......
My resistance is low when it comes to making foamiran flowers and these cute little plaques!

This time I decorated the back with this lovely image from Teddy Bo & Co
It will be available there from this afternoon hopefully!
I coloured her with promarkers, which was tricky as I had to print her directly onto the yellow paper but I am very happy with the finished result.

Flowers were cut from white Foamiran using my  Rosy Dot Dies and coloured using distress inks.

I heated them up and rolled once together and then kept twisting them. For at least 30 twists each. I did the original ones by rolling lots first then a bit of twisting but I like the look of the finished ones.

I accidently ripped one during the stretching procedure but I used it anyway. The heat glue gun saves all my sins lol.

Items used:
White Foamiran, distress inks, stamen, heat gun, glue gun
Leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts

Thanks for taking time to comment, and I hope it inspires you to have a go at making some flowers.

Flowers for baby card

So today I used my pink foamiran for this little baby card.
I used my dies again but for the centres I used some scraps of white foamiran cut and rolled and heated with heat tool for the centres. I sprayed them with sparkle and spray.
The little hearts were punched using pink foamarian. I did try to punch some butterflies but it did not like the foamiran. 
TIP: when using punches, if deep enough layer your foam with copy paper, it really helps the punch to cut through both without spoiling the foamiran

Step by step

Step 1 - I cut white foam with my big flower die from Foamiran Ireland
I tinted them using the versa colour ink pad

Step 2 - I heated with my heat tool and then rolled and twisted between my fingers until I was happy with shape

Step 3 - I opened out the flowers and stretched each individual petal

Step 4 - I used my glue gun to stick each of the layers together

Step 5 - I added a large pearl to each of the centres

Mini album

I had a mini album to make for a friend and decided to pop one of my foamiran flowers on the front.
This was one of my very first ones.

Hopefully as time goes by my flowers will be much more exciting lol.

Mother's Day heart plaque

So I finally made a project with my foamiran flowers.
I used white foamiran this time (from Noor Design Uk),
 coloured with pink waterbased ink pad.
I cut out using my Tonic Aster flower die set, using the large and small outer dies.
Tinted them with the ink using a dry baby wipe (need to get sponges).
I heated on the iron for 3 seconds then shaped and rolled each flower.
I opened them out, stretched lightly and used my glue gun to put together.
Each flowers was finished with stamen and a pearl then sprayed lightly with sparkle and spray!
The leaves were from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Papers from K & Co. MDF heart from The Works.

using product (dies) and technique (adding sparkle)

My first foamiran flowers!

My very first experience of Foamiran!
I made this with a tutorial by Pam Blood on youtube.
No dies were used, I used pink foamiran, scissors, stamen and pearls!
Quite happy but need lots and lots of practice. Did I say I was addicted!!
