Fun with Flowers for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop
Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop!
With floral stamp sets, dies and printed papers, you can’t go wrong as you have fun with flowers. Today’s Fun with Flowers Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that share some great ideas!
We are excited to share what we’ve made and hope you’ll find great inspiration from our talented team members in this hop. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Every year, as June draws closer, I start to panic a little thinking about the Stampin’ Up! products on my wish list that might retire. The Circle Card Thinlits Die set is one of those things. After wanting it for several years, I decided now was the time to get it JUST IN CASE it’s not available next year.
I broke it open for this project, a Mother’s Day card that is floral and fun.
Here’s how I made the card:
- I decided to use a Rose Red cardstock base and two patterns from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.
- I cut out the card base, making an extra folding panel using a tutorial I found featuring the beautiful Mary Fish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiVA5jvjsu8
- For the front side of the circle, I re-created a flower found on my white patterned paper by using the Botanical Builders Framelits Dies.
- Using the Framelits, I cut out two of the dimensional flowers – one in Rose Red and another in Blushing Bride. I snipped off the Rose Red petals and glued the remaining flower outline over the top of the Blushing Bride flower, to give it a two-tone look.
- I embellished the Whisper White stamen and anthers of the flower with Pearl Basic Jewels.
- I added three small leaves in Garden Green.
- The sentiment on the backside of the circle comes from the A Nice Cuppa Photopolymer Stamp Set.
- The inside sentiment is from the Suite Sayings stamp set.
- I had to hold myself back from going overboard with the embellishments. It’s easy to get sucked into all the extra space to fill with fabulous things, but I felt keeping it simple would keep the message in the forefront where it belonged.
I love the way the circle spins when this card is opened. Not only is it an unexpected bonus for the recipient, it gives you two chances to share your creativity! I’m happy I finally ordered this amazing die set and I can see myself using over and over again for all types of occasions.
