Stampin' Friends All About Flowers Blog Hop

The new Hues of Happiness DSP from Stampin' Up! was the perfect choice to showcase for this month's Stampin' Friends All About Flowers Blog Hop.  These gorgeous blooms have a coordinating stamp and die set, but are so much fun to fussy cut that you can make so many beautiful projects with just the paper!

For my card I started with a Thick Basic White top-folding card base, 4.25" x 11" scored at 5.5".  I then embossed a Basic White panel (4.25" x 5.5") with the Stitched Greenery Die--a favourite that I am so excited is carrying over into the new catalogue. :)  After adding that gorgeous stitching I cut a wedge out of the centre of the panel....this doesn't have to be very precise!  I sliced the panel in half diagonally (top left to bottom right), and then from the top half of the panel I cut another diagonal strip off, leaving me with a small gap at the top and a bigger gap at the bottom.  I then added a small border of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock to the diagonal edge.

Sympathy Card Handmade

I layered a pretty piece of the Hues of Happiness DSP with tiny colourful flowers on the base of my card, and then added my prepared stitched pieces directly on top.  

All those beautiful blooms are cut right from the DSP!  You get two 12x12 sheets with a variety of colour from soft blues and purples through to yellows, pinks and reds.  I fussy cut several different blooms and leaves from the DSP and layered them on
dimensionals behind a Basic White die cut label from the All That Dies set.  I am loving the shape of this label and have used it on pretty much every card I have made with my preorder items so far!  

The blooms were added to my card base with more dimensionals--I may be obsessed with layers!  I mixed in some more carrying-forward products to complete my card:  The Peaceful Moments Stamp Set for my sentiment (stamped in Black Memento ink), and the Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments.

My 3D project with month is a May Flower Cone.  I used a full sheet of pretty paper from the Hues of Happiness DSP pack and wrapped it into a cone shape.  I used a regular hole punch to add my ribbon hanger, and I also added two holes to the front of my cone so I could tie on my tag.

The tag is cut from Thick Basic White cardstock with the largest die from the Tailor Made Tags set.  I fussy cut some more blooms and leaves from the Hues of Happiness DSP and added them to the end of my tag with dimensionals, along with some additional Brushed Brass Butterflies.  I added a pretty frayed bow made from the soon-to-be-retired Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon--get it while you can (and while it's on sale)!!

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my project!  If so, I'd love to hear from you in the comments below before you hop along to see what was made for you this month!
