May is the month when many flowers are in full bloom after a long winter's sleep.
For the blog hop this month we want to see your favorite take on flowers.
You can stamp backgrounds, create custom floral embellishments, showcase unique
flower center additions (buttons, rhinestones, beads, etc...),flowers die-cut from
different materials (like fabric, felt, vellum, etc...) or anything else you can dream up!
I just received my new order from Papertrey Ink with all sorts of flowery goodies.
I wanted my card to include the violets image from Year of the Flower Collection and the seed packet and accessories from Garden Variety. So Much Fun!!
I actually tried several different coloured card stock and ink variations, but this is the one that I liked the most. I don't know about others, but when I get a new stamp set it often takes a bit of trial and error before I get 'comfortable' with the possibilities.
I didn't get the seed packet frame in my recent order, so I ended up cutting it out by hand!! Yikes. The frame is on my wish list now!!
I also stamped the violet on white card stock and after colouring with copics I fussy cut it before adding it to the embossed white background. I also did a lot of heat embossing with white on the Royal Velvet card stock. I really like the way that it 'pops' on that dark background.
Here's a quick overview of the goodies that I used:
Stamps: PTI Butterfly Dreams (sentiment); Garden Variety; Year of the Flowers Collection
PTI Dies: PTI Button Card; Garden Variety Die Set;
Cardstock: PTI Royal Velvet; Lemon Tart, Stamper's Select White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; SU Lovely Lilac; Versamark
Other Supplies: White Detail Embossing Powder; Stampin' Up Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder; rhinestones; copic markers; EK Success Dotted Scallop Border Punch
