Floral Flurries

I was playing around with a bunch of stamps and decided to make my own Design Paper for another Color Card Challenge; however it didn't work out for that particular card.  I didn't want to discard so I decided I would use it for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #108.   I asked my daughter what I should call this Design Paper and she suggested "Floral Flurries."

As I worked with this Sketch I realized I was covering a lot of my Design Paper, so my cuts of panels were made smaller, and I stamped and fussy-cut (3) of the Larger Flowers and layered over the panels with 3-D Thin Foam Tape, and finished with gold glitter and liquid glass for the flower centers.  Added purple Glitter Tape for the ribbon, and replaced the bow with a Glitter Butterfly backed with vellum, and added liquid glass to the body.

On the Sentiment Panel:  Cricut Design Space "CTMH Art Philosophy" cut two ovals with scallops using Gypsy and White Daisy cardstock, one larger than the other, layered and stamped Sentiment from D1629 "Just to Say Cricut Collection."

"Floral Flurries" is made up of (4) CTMH Stamp Sets and Variety of Inks:

  • C1247 "Simple Blossoms"  Large Flowers stamped Honey
  • S1411 "It's The Little Things SOTM"  Small 5-Petal Flowers stamped Gypsy, Sunset and Pacifica; Stem and Leaves stamped Sand; Large 5-Petal Flower stamped Gypsy     
  • D1275 "Serendipity"  The Large and Small Flairs stamped Topiary; Circle with Stripes stamped Pacifica, and 5-Petal Flower stamped Honey
  • D1413 "Cherished Flourishes"  Small Flair stamped Purple; and Large Flair stamped Sunset 
Please stop by Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to see the Design Teams creations and other entries and hopefully giving you inspiration to join this challenge.

Also entered into The Outlawz - Tuesday Color Challenge with Twist Shine, and Thursday Anything Goes Challenge with Twist Favorite Color(s).

I am so glad I get to see your cards "up close and personal" so I can see exactly how pretty your colors are. Making your own background paper emphasizes the beauty of your card.

I LOVE your background paper, I thought "what paper pack is that from". Do you have a spare sheet, I'd love to play with it!
That butterfly totally looks right at home in the garden!

C'mon Sue, Tracey and I would both love to play with a spare piece of that gorgeous background paper!

Wait until you see my new design in June, you may want that one too : )

Wow, you made this paper yourself? So beautiful. I rarely use my smaller stamps, I should put them to use to try and make my own designer paper too sometime. It looks wonderful!
