Challenge 75: Flower Power
Use your handmade or 3-d flowers!
(your project can include stamped images but it also needs to have at least one flower that is either handmade or a 3-d flower you bought. Think Wild Orchid Crafts, puffy stickers, Primas, etc.)
i am a sucker for dimensional items, generally, and florals in particular, so my only problem was deciding which, of my considerable stash, to use. i went with pink velvet. because, well... why not, eh?!
(patterned paper (all scraps, woohoo!): crate, pink paislee, glitz; pre-folded, but unused (woohoo!) cardstock card base: core'dinations; diecut frame (dating from the civil war, i think--woohoo!!!): k and co; velvet flower (ok, not thaaaaaat old, but still stash, woohoo): petaloo; fabric tape: love my tapes; "thank you" formatted in "manuscript" font and printed on a staples brand inkjet clear label; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)
and i'm still quite clearly "thinking pink" as they suggest, but i have not actually stamped at all on this card, so i might not technically qualify for the challenge. that's ok. it's a brilliant sketch and it totally HELPED me speed up my "process"!
i went quite simple-- well, simple for ME! :) i actually came very close to running out of time completely this week, which is sometimes a good thing, as it forces me to pare down, use ready-made items, and stay focused. i made a thank you card because i already have sufficient "girly" birthday cards for the rest of the year. what i don't have is enough "guy cards" but i couldn't quite see a *QUICK* way to incorporate dimensional flowers into one of those; maybe next time, lol!
why not drop in at SOS and see what my fellow designers have done with this fun challenge?! ♥
