You Make Me Happy - Beaded Details with Pinkfresh Fleur 1

I'm back with yet another floral card inspired by Pinkfresh Studio. 
On Monday, I shared my Monday Favorites, and this set is definitely at the very tippy top of the list, so I thought I'd pop in and show another take on these pretty florals. 

For today's card I was inspired by some beautiful floral fabrics I've been spotting lately. 
I wanted to infuse a floral look that was fresh, modern and fun, without being too stuffy, so that I could do a little bit of beadwork for the focal piece. 

I'm so in love with how this turned out - and it reminds me so much of a really pretty floral dress I love and wear all the time. It's so fun being inspired by everyday items and working that style into papercrafting :)

To start the card, I stamped a flower on each corner of the card, followed by the branch design on each side, to make the pretty leaves touch in the middle. I believe this whole design took 10 impressions to make! So quick and simple. 

After stamping the flowers in Ranger's Black Archival Ink, I used my Zig markers to color in a soft wash of tint to each flower and leaf. 

At the top and bottom of the card, I added another floral detail, stamped with Altenew's Floral Frame stamp set, embossed and watercolored. I also added two rose cabachons to finish off the floral look.

In the center, I used PTI's Limitless Layers: Stitched Hearts dies to cut a design and then I used very thin wire and seed beads to add some ombre beadwork!
For the sentiment, I stamped Staz-On ink onto some acetate and added it to the center of the heart.

I added a few Nuvo Jewel drops around the card and I love the translucent look and softness that it adds!

That's all for today but I'll be back with some more fun designs soon!

Have a great day!



  1. Ivana, your card is just gorgeous - so soft & girly, yet so contemporary in style! What a talent!

    1. Dearest Dianne, thank you so much! You so so very sweet! Sending you biiig hugs! xo

  2. Just when I think you've made the best card ever--you top it! Could just sit & stare at this one all day, Ivana! The beading puts it over the top, but I also love how you used the Zigs for such a soft wash of color & the roses are a beautiful addition! If I walked past this set, it'd have to come home with me--haha! Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

    1. O my goodness, Greta! That is sooooooo kind of you to say! Thank you so much for your sweetness!! (p.s. Yes, this set is sure a winner!!)
