More lovely Deco Miranda

Hello there,

Today another creation made with the new lovely stamps......I've enjoyed very much playing with these stamps, I always do with those great designs made by our talented CB designer!

I've made two cards in a pink/black colour combination. This is the first one......This one is made with the Fleurs Nouveau. I've stamped and coloured on Basic Grey scrap paper and decoupaged some flowers. The wavy edges are a die(Borderabilitie) from Spellbinders( also available at CB) and the swirl and flowers are dies from Memorybox. I like these wavy borders to play with.......

from another angle......

This is the 2nd one, also made with a borderabilitie from Spellbinders. And this card is made with the Nouveau Lovebirds sheet. If I had to pick a favorite of these two sheets.....I would not I would probaply buy them both!

And again I've used one of my Basic Grey scrap papers as background, I am glad I've bought a lot of them some time ago, so I have always something to grab.....
I have stamped with a pink ink and coloured with pencils and some of the flowers are embossed with Wow silver and black twinkle, coloured with markers and decoupaged. The text is from the Mackintosh sentiments. I like these stylish flowers, they have something organic.......

Well, this is my take on these flowers for today, hope I have inspired you !
Thanks for your visit and always like to read your comments! If you have questions, please ask.....


  1. Miranda two more beautiful inspirational cards. The pink black colour way is very striking and works beautifully with the added sparkle.Those Basic Grey papers work a treat. I love the way you have used those curvaceous edge dies, I have some of those and you have inspired me to use mine more creatively. I really like the way you have put the flowers on top of the black flourish die cut too. Elaine x

  6. Miranda - as ever, your cards are breathtaking! Love the colour combo & the borderabilities edges; never thought of using them before but now.....I feel a purchase coming on! Please tell me, what size card did you use?
    Many thanks for such wonderful inspiration!

  7. These are exactly my type of card. I especially like the second one. The colours are stunning.

  8. Wat een hoop texture met die technieken en verschillende papiersoorten! Mooi! Groetjes, Gerrina

  9. Wow. what lovely colours you have used so eyecatching and intense, just a bit different for you Miranda, but exquisitely done. The curved shapes you have created are beautiful on both cards, and the black swirl on the first and the black card and also some black stamping on the second creates even more drama. The stamps from both sets are beautiful and the shapes are so stylish. Just wonderful cards.

  10. These are gorgeous, love the flowers and the beautiful shapes you have used.

  12. The ever talented Miranda, not around as much as I used to be but still love your work, always a pleasure
    Happy craftin

  13. I can see you had fun with those border abilities. Your white accenting of the stamped image in the first is is very striking & beautifully echoed by your white stamens of the punched flowers. The card construction itself is intriguing & I like the way the flap is kept closed by that upper punched flower. Your second card is my favourite with the superb lacey border echoing the flower centres & I like the way you have used both white, black & pink for the flowers creating variation for the eye - love the "heavier" black flowers at the bottom balanced by the "lighter" white flowers at the top.
