Faux canvas flowers and a giveaway!




As soon as I saw Kristina Werner use some canvas flowers by Jillibean Soup in her video, a little light bulb went off and I had to try and make my own.


I stamped the Dots background on Claudine Hellmuth's wonderful sticky back canvas, using the new Hero Hues chalk ink in Punch. After letting it dry, I used a Nestabilities flower set and cut them out. Added a button and I was quite pleased with the result!





I wish that I used some type of acrylic paint so the dots would be darker, and maybe YOU can try and make some.
Yep, I'm giving away a pack of sticky back canvas and a Dot background cling stamp to one lucky person.


Just leave me a comment and tell me a "feel good" thing that happened recently.

Even if you don't make these faux Jillibean Soup flowers, the canvas is a great surface to stamp on and takes all types of medium really well. And the Nestabilities cuts through the canvas cleanly, too. I'm also planning to die cut some butterflies soon...

The deadline to leave a comment is Friday, April 2nd at 11:59pm Hawaii standard time. Check the little clock on my blog's sidebar. I will announce the winner on Sunday's post. And I will ship internationally, too, so spread the word!

Stamps: Pure Innocence from My Favorite Things; Hero Arts
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink white, Gina K
Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye
Ink: Memento, Versafine, Colorbox
Other: Nestabilities, corner rounder, Copics,
Sticky back canvas, button

  10. Such a great idea. A feel good thing that is happening soon is spring break! I can't wait, and the week long buildup it is exciting as well. Also, my Copics keep allowing me to make beautiful cards. That's definitely a feel good time.

  12. How sweet of you, Donna! I love how your card turned out!

    My feel good moment happened this afternoon when our son sent his monthly pictures of our little Liam, and there was one that looked so much like our son; first time that I've seen such a strong resemblance! Sure did make me smile, bringing back wonderful memories.

  13. Hi Donna! I love your black-hair PI cutie. Your card is precious and I love your flower!

    Funny how you brought up a "feel good" thing that happened recently. My DH just came home from helping my son do some yard work and he gave me a beautiful potted flower plant and said from your son, just because. Just because when he saw the plant, he thought of me--now how's that for a feel good moment!

  15. Your card is lovely Donna. Those are some cool canvas flowers.

    Well today was family day and my son wanted to watch the 3-D movie - How to Train Your Dragon. It was fun and really enjoy the movie more since it was on 3-D. Later on today will be go to the park and do some running. This will make us feel good later and exercise will make us in good shape too. TFS and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Made me believe there are some wonderful people out there!!!

  31. You and I think so much alike!! When I saw Kristina's video I too wanted to make some home-made flowers .... but I can't find any of the stickyback canvas! I'd love to win this awesome prize!! A feel good thing that happened recently for me was seeing my wonderful son do so well in his very first Science Fair!! I was so proud of him as he answered questions about his project to people who stopped to ask!!

    Thanks for the chance!!

  33. Well, something happened to me great recently. I was on workshop of my company in Singapore last week, very very busy with my job until I could not sleep properly. I was alone and staying in the hotel alone. Pretty sad to miss my hubby and my baby son. After two days in Singapore and thinking five more days to go with the torture workshop, finally the night in the hotel, my door was knocked by a stranger, when I opened slightly, it was my baby son and my hubby burst into huge laugh and it was a surprise for me indeed. My hubby had planned to take his off leave form work and came with baby to accompany me. So fortunate!!
    And as always be, your cards always represent real happy and enjoyable life. Never get bored, Donna!!

  34. Hi, Donna! This card is so sweet! I love what you did with the flowers! Love the little girl watering that flower. Hmmm... makes me think of a good teacher card saying "thanks for helping me grow." heehee! Please don't include me in the drawing, but a feel-good moment was watching my son finally play cars with a friend! (He's been really longing for a little brother since he has 2 sisters who like to play with dolls!)
