A labour of love

 Ever since we made the wreath at last years stampin up retreat I have been meaning to play at making a pomander so at the Claxby retreat a few weeks ago I did just that.
 The papers used are by stampin up as are the 2 flower punches - all the flowers were carefully inked and curled before pinning to the polystyrene ball.  Each flower needed a middle so I added card cany and pearl gems.
This is our Megs holding it so you can see its a sizable ball!
It really was a labour of love and took quite a while to complete but I am very pleased with the out come - What do you think?

Hope everyone is doing well and loving these summer days we are having.
Thanks for stopping by x


  1. Gorgeous and testament to your endless patience Janet xxx

  2. Wow Clarky this is stunning.
    A few years ago I made something similar that I found in a magazine.
    I cut lots and lots of circles on my Cricut machine (2 different sizes) and layered up like you have done with the flowers. they were all in silver for the "C" tree, I made about 6 of them and sold them all at a craft fair. Like you said they take quite a long time to do so I did not get round to doing anymore. They are stunning tho' and I would love to do the flower ones with you.
    Lovely to see you and Mum at ST's, will let you know when we are next there.

  3. This is beautiful Janet - what a lovely creation.
