Welcome to Team L.I.'s second Blog Hop. I am so happy to be part of this very talented group of crafters. If you are coming from Patty Chenail's blog, then you are in the right place. Our group has grown so we have 10 crafters today and will have another 10 joining another circle tomorrow. So to see tomorrow's round of the blog hop go to Valerie's blog and see even more beautiful creations. Now be sure to read all the way through, because at the end of my post you will have an opportunity to enter our monthly Rafflecopter giveaway.
Since our theme this month is May Flowers, I made a flowery thank you card with leftovers from our gorgeous Dream Pop paper pack. I new I wanted to stamp something pretty, so I chose one of my favorite stamp sets, C1494 Card Word Puzzle. It is one of our most versatile sets. Just think about all you could do with these stamps!
To make this colorful card I started with some of the leftover papers from my Dream Pop workshop. They are vivid and, well, "happy" for lack of a better word. I stamped a small piece of white cardstock with the flower outline in black a few times, then stamped one more image on a scrap of White Daisy cardstock and cut it out. I used our new alcohol markers to color in the petals. Because you get two markers with each color (a light and a darker) I was able to give the petals some dimension. I used foam tape to pop the pink flower and petals up for added dimension and texture and then added the tiny Opaque Pearls. I used black cardstock mats to "pop" the colors. I love how it turned out. What do you think?
