CTMH: May Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop

posted in: Cards | 17

Welcome to another Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop!  If you’ve come from Susan’s blog, you’re on the right track.  We’ve got lots of beautiful artwork ready for you to enjoy and be inspired by.

This month’s stamp set is all about sunflowers.

I love the sentiments in this set and though I’m not a huge fan of this style of stamp set, I did enjoy working with it.  Here is my creation:

This is only the second easel card I’ve made and I think it was perfect for my basket of flowers.
If you follow my blog at all, you know I don’t enjoy colouring in stamped images.  Well, this time was no different.  I used the dot sides of the new Dotty for You paper pack to stamp the flowers.  They just looked like a basket full, so that’s what I made!

I made the basket by weaving paper together on my desk and then after running a cut-out basket through my Xyron, I just placed the woven papers on top, trimming them all to match the shape.  I did have to add a bit of adhesive with my glue pen to make sure all the edges were down.  Then I put a double layer of 3-D Foam Tape down the middle before attaching it to the green paper to give it a bit more dimension.  The Bitty Pearls were added to the basket to just make it look prettier.  My daughter, who is 6, suggested I do all the rows, and I think she was right.  I like it that way. The flowers are popped at varying levels.  Here’s another view:

The sentiment is stamped on an image I cut from the Cricut long ago that I just didn’t use.

Materials Used:
Dotty for You
Cocoa and Colonial White cardstock
Cocoa ink
Colonial White Grosgrain ribbon (retired)
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge

And now you get to hop on over to fancyMelissa’s fun blog for some more great artwork.  Happy Hopping!
