SF-2023 April Blog Hop - All About the Flowers!


Be sure to hop through all the blogs on the list near the bottom for tons of wonderful inspiration as we create wonderful "All About the Flowers" projects to share with you!!
Flowers - I love flowers - I know people say you can have too many flower stamps - but I have to disagree.  I love every time a new floral stamp comes out and buy most of them.  For my project I used the amazing "Artistically Inked" stamp set and matching Artistic dies from the SU! Annual catalog - I loved it when it first came out and am so happy they are continuing into the new catalog.
#154542 Artistically Inked $24.00*
#155371 Artistic Dies $35.00*
I am a clean and simple stamper - I love pops of color against a white background - so that is the route I decided to take with this card - 
I got that beautiful background texture from using the Online Exclusive Basics 3D embossing folders - I love them all - but this polka dot one is definitely a favorite (#161598 - Basics 3D Embossing Folders - $30.00/3*).
Then I created my flower cluster -
The colors I used were Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Tahitian Tide and Pool Party - I used a die to cut the base layer of this and my brushes to brush color around the end - then created a little cluster with the flowers and added a tiny sparkly bow.
For the sentiment I used three layers to make it stand out - 
A strip of colored cardstock, a strip of Basic White cardstock with stamped splatters, and then the strip with the sentiment - all layered together.  Then I stopped - I loved it just the way it was.  Hope you like it too!
