Cards enhenced with tissue and paper punch

Finally I have sometime to create with my recent purchase Japaneses tissues and two new Martha Stewart paper punches. It took me a while to get the paper punch to work the way I like. I am very happy with the results.
I really like the Malva flower how it pressed.  The colour retained so nice. The white stay very white.These were pressed over 2 years ago. I was at Kent Wood Garden Centre and Evelyn, the owner, was very kind and let me help myself to her garden. I only took a few of Malva and it turn out so nice.  I must plant this plant this year or visit her again.

I like the colour of this card stock.The tissue has leaves watermarks  added a  nice touch.
The leaves on this card were Trident Maple leaves and fall wild grape leave and ferns.

This was a very nice punch. It can be used on the corner or  along the straight edge.
I trimmed off the pointed ends and made it blended with the tissue design.
The big blue flower was a new addition last year. I bought it from Kent Wood Garden, Geranium Ballerina, a perennial Geranium.  I like how its exquisite colouring and the veins retained so well.

This is another nice paper punch. Again it can be used at the corner or along the straight edge of the paper.
I really love these lacy tissue. I bought it at The Paper Place in Toronto. Here is the link to the store web site.
This paper is under "Watermark tissue"

Happy Mother's Day

I am so proud of our Sunday School class. The kids did over 60 bookmarks for all the ladies at the church. Here are a few samples.

Each lady also received a Marigold and Dianthus. We put them in a clear bag and tied a curly ribbon, but that was hard for the little hands to tie the ribbons. They were all very good in cutting ribbons and good finger for the held down the knot. The flower packages were put in a basket and  handed out to the congregation during the last hymn.  Great job gang.
