OSAT Blog Hop – May Flowers

May 12, 2016 15 Comments

One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop

Welcome!  We’re all about May Flowers for this month’s One Stamp at a Time blog hop.  Don’t forget to click “Next” at the bottom of this post to continue to Melissa’s blog.

 I got to thinking about what I was going to create for today’s hop…and I came up empty.
So, I decided to just pull out some Whisper White cardstock and begin to play.
One thing led to another and I came up with
Spring Flower Arrangment for May Flowers OSAT blog hop from theartfulinker.com
this spring flower arrangement.
The flowers remind me of some that I see in my yard as we move through the Spring.
 –

Using the Gift Bag Punch Board and a 4″ x 10-1/2″ piece of Whisper White, I made the “vase” for my flower arrangement.
Before adhering it together, I randomly stamped the flower from Best Thoughts, in Elegant Eggplant, around the sides; being careful to mask off leaves before each inking.

Then, I used the Sunburst Thinlits and Hello Honey cardstock to create the large flower.
This flower uses two 4″ square pieces and one 3″ square piece.
Center the pieces on the circular part of the die.
After cutting, gently use your bone folder to soften and curl the “petals”.
The center of the flower is a 1″ circle punch of Gold Glimmer paper that is topped with die cut stamens in Elegant Eggplant.
The flower spikes were made using a 2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of cardstock.  I made these flowers in both Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum.
The strips were cut three quarters of the way through using Fringe Scissors.
Then, I softened the cardstock using my bone folder and curled the fringes around the covered point of my Paper Piercing Tool.
 –
Finally, I added some leaves from Botanical Gardens designer cut with the Rose Garden Thinlits.
Since the leaves are seen from both sides, I wanted the same pattern on both sides.
Tip: Cut one group of leaves from one side of the designer paper then flip the paper over and cut the next set of leaves.  This will give you a pair of leaf cut outs that once adhered together with have the same design on the two sides that face out.
 So I finished my flower arrangement and thought it would make a nice gift.  Of course, a gift needs a card.

Using Best Thoughts again, I stamped the flower in Elegant Eggplant on a 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ piece of Whisper White.
Then, the splatter from Gorgeous Grunge was added in Hello Honey.
Next a pair of Botanical Gardens designer paper leaves were cut with the Rose Garden Thinlits and added to the image.
The bottom of the focal layer was finished with a 4-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ strip of Hello Honey that’s been layered with Gold Glimmer Paper (4-1/2″ x 1/2″) and a piece of Sweet Lil Things washi.
This finished panel was added to a 4-3/4″ x 4-3/4″ layer of Botanical Gardens designer paper with dimensionals.
And the whole thing sits on a 5″ x 5″ thick Whisper White base.
I then used a piece of Hello Honey and made a custom size envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.
Then, I decorated the envelope with Mossy Meadow leaves from Rose Wonder and another piece of Sweet Lil things washi.
