Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Flowers and Leaves

Hi Crafters,

The Global Stamping Friends are teaming up on another great blog hop and this month's theme is Flowers and Leaves.  

Stampin' Up! have a fabulous selection of floral products - it was so hard to choose which one to use!  I settled on the Layered Leaves 3D embossing folder and some gorgeous DSP from the Share What You Love Suite.  This paper is super thick and the designs are beautiful.  I ended up making a set of three cards which are the same but different!

I actually started by making the card on the right and then the others followed quickly.  I embossed a Note Card with the Layered Leaves 3D embossing folder and then applied a piece of the beautiful Share What You Love Specialty DSP at a jaunty angle.  I like to call this design the tablecloth card!  I die cut my sentiments (hooray, thanks and miss you) using Whisper White cardstock from the Well Written Dies and adhered three layers together for extra dimension.  I thought about using a different colour for the centre card but decided to stick to the Whisper White in the end.  I did add a coat of Wink of Stella to the sentiments which doesn't show up well in photos.  I finished off with some of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls in Rich Razzleberry which features in all three of the DSP pieces.  Here are the cards in more detail individually.  

I hope you like my no-stamping examples!  It has only just occurred to me that there is no stamping!  Maybe that's a good excuse to get inky soon!  To keep hopping just click the image below to head to Anastasia's wonderful creation.  If you get lost, there is a roll call below too.  

Happy crafting,
