Welcome everyone to the May Papertrey Blog Hop! We are so thrilled to see you here! First, the challenge…
May is the month when many flowers finally go into 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! We are looking forward to seeing all of your amazing creations!I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project. This new type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.
Here's a little something I whipped up for the challenge.
I thought I would pull out my Bloom Builders #1 dies and create a beautiful dimensional flower with one of my favorite patterned paper collections, Pretty Pastels.
I stamped the frame from Label Basics onto my Kraft card base with Fresh Snow ink. I then added a second layer of Kraft which I stamped with Year of Flowers Collection (the violets image specifically). The sentiment is from Everyday Button Bits and it was stamped in True Black.
The flowers were created with the pink paper from the Pretty Pastels and some vintage book print from an old book. I love the detail and dimension the Bloom Builders dies can add to a project. I also think these little Beautiful Blooms #3 shapes complement the Bloom Builders #1 quite well.
We've had lots of questions over the last few months about seeing the Bloom Builders dies in action, so I've thrown together a short video for you showcasing this truly incredible product that was an amazing conception by Betsy Veldman. Enjoy the show!
Now it's your turn to share your floral wonders with us!
I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project. This new type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.
