Welcome to SunnyGirlScraps!
Welcome to this months Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Spring, Flowers or Weddings. I’ve opted to focus on Spring and Flowers. I absolutely love Springtime with fresh new flowers, new life and the arrival of warmer weather.
If you’ve arrived from either Nikki’s blog, Creations by Mommy, or Kim Ryden’s blog, Stamping with Kim, I hope you enjoyed their projects. The Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad Blog Hop theme for April is Spring, Flowers or Weddings. The one key requirement is that we post a card and 3D project. I hope you enjoy the projects that I’ve posted. If you enjoy my projects, I would LOVE to hear from you and ask that you leave a comment and also feel free to pin these projects to Pinterest but just make certain to include a link to this blog post. Finally, I encourage you to visit all the blogs on the blog hop. So, on that note, welcome to the…
Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad April Blog Hop
Spring Flowers Project # 1
The first project I”m featuring in today’s blog hop actually includes three small Note Cards. The note cards measure 3×3 and feature a floral pattern using a new stamp set which will be in the 2012 – 2013 Stampin’ Up! Catalog called Bright Blossoms. Each note card is based on Whisper White with Designer Series Paper from the Summer Smooches suite. I love the bright colors as they speak of spring, fun and the beauty of bright flowers. Each note card features a different “floral” design. All the images are stamped on Whisper White which were colored using the Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Write markers using the “huff” or “Breathe of Life” method to remoisten the ink. I used teh 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch to create the background from Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight. The Blue card has a yellow button daisy with a pearl in the center. The yellow card has a Daffodil Delight Tulip and the red card has two little Real Red flowers.
Spring Flowers Envelope Box Project # 2
The second project is a special box I created to hold the three note cards. I love the simplicity of this box and how easy it is to create it using the Diagonal Scoring Tool available as an accessory to the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. As the base for this box, I used Daffodil Delight then layered the front of the box with a fun pattern from the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper. The scallop circle is punched out from Old Olive and the stamped image on Whisper White is from the Bright Blossoms stamp set. The sentiment on the front comes from the Petite Pairs stamp set and is punched out with the Word Window punch.
On the back of the box, I created a flower from Real Red and Pacific Point card stock using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch. This flower actually serves a second purpose as the “latch” to keep the flap on the box closed.
