CREATIVE INKING BLOG HOP - SPRINGING INTO FLOWERS



Welcome to the Creative Inking April Blog Hop! Whether you have arrived from Phyllis' blog or started here, please be sure to follow along the hop to see all our creations.

The theme this month is "Springing Into Flowers". I love the "Flower Patch" bundle (stamp set and framelits) and used them to create a wall hanging and matching card. I thought it would make a great birthday gift for a friend of mine. Here's the wall hanging:


I used the ink colors Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, and Blushing Bride to create the flowers. The leaves were all stamped with Mossy Meadow. I used the small butterfly from the Butterfly Basics stamp set for something a little different.  I used pearls to adorn the flowers and Candy Dots (Brights and Subtles) to fill in around the flowers. The sentiment is also from the Flower Patch stamp set.  

Here's the matching card:


I used the Woodgrain Impressions Textured Embossing Folder to back the flowers and provide some contrast to the white-on-white card.



If you love Wall Hangings like I do, check out the Baby Boy and Baby Girl Wall Hangings that I designed - you can see them on my pinterest page here (boy) and here (girl).

Happy Hopping!

  3. Sandy i have gone back on this bundle. I have always wanted it but hadnt made the investment. I am now sold. This is amazing. I may have to C.A.S.E this. And I love the idea of making a framed piece and starting with the concept of a circle. I cant wait to try this idea. Maybe I will start with the botanical set! I'm so excited!!!!

    1. Thank you Angela! It really is easier than it looks. I used an 11" circle (drew it with pencil on my 12 x 12 white. After arranging and adhering the flowers, etc., I just erased my pencil marks. Easy-peasy!

    1. Thank you Lynn! It took about 3 1/2 hours total. I stamped and cut the flowers out one evening and put it together the next morning. Arranging the flowers to my liking was the hardest part! Thanks again!
