What a fun topic we had this month--flowers. I am afraid to count the flower sets I have, but it is safe to say that I have a lot. I thought about trying to make one card with each of my flower sets, and quickly ruled that out as impossible. I did try to make something for each of the color schemes we were given, and I made it to all but one. I'll have to get that one some other time.
First up is a little teacher gift that I made based on this post by Christina. I ordered the paper cubes here. It's hard to get a perspective on size in this photo--the cube is 2 inches on all sides. It was surprisingly easy to stamp on the side of the cube. I colored with copics, and even added some glitter with a sakura gel pen.
I stamped and colored some images on a piece of computer paper, and stuck it inside of this pen to coordinate with the memo cube.
Here is a side view:
I made a matching tag using Tremendous Tags, and tied it all together with some sheer ribbon from Michaels.
I am going to enter this into the Gift Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
Friends Till The End
My next card uses paper piecing, and is also for this week's Make it Monday #117. I tried to stick as close as possible to this color scheme, but had to make a few substitutions because I really wanted to use my Distress Dots paper.
This is my favorite of the color schemes, and I think this card is one of my favorites for today. I was inspired by this card I saw a while back, which reminded me how much I love my Background Basics Medallions.
Beautiful Blooms II
I started this card by stamping a background on a quarter sheet of white. I ended up cutting it in two pieces, and using it on two cards. I wanted to use a vertical sentiment on both cards, and couldn't figure out if it should read from the bottom up or the top down. So, I did one each way, and perhaps you can tell me which looks right?
I got the idea to use that picket fence from Lisa's card here. I used the fence from Little Bitty Bird. I can't believe I own two different picket fence dies.
The Sweet Life
Last is my other favorite card of the post. I am also submitting this card to this week's Simon Says...Take a Picture.
I know I have kept you too long. Enjoy the rest of the hop. I am eager to see some of my other flower sets in action.
Thanks for Visiting
