Quick Flower Cards
I love when you start a project, with the intent of only making one card....and it turns into multiple cards. :o) That's exactly what happened when I started stamping this flower from Stampin' Up's Dream A Little set. I was showing someone how to use rubber stamps and one use for Fun Flock (fuzzy stuff). I stamped the flowers onto white cardstock and then trimmed them with straight lines. I mounted the flowers on a mat, the same color as the card base. I used one of my favorite greens, and also some Core'dinations brown, just torn to create a white edge and give contrast to the cards. For the top card, I also used ribbon with a little green dash sewn in. I used the Fun Flock to make the center of each flower fuzzy and stand out more. I hope you enjoy! ~Hoppy Crafting!
Kindergarten teacher by day, and self-proclaimed crafting nightowl. I enjoy long walks with my Gypsy, iced mochas, and salivate over the newest papers, embellishments, Stampin' Up products, and Cricut cartridges available. While I LOVE my job as a kindergarten teacher, I need a creative outlet in my downtime. For me, this comes in the form of scrapbooking, cardmaking, cake decorating, and other miscellaneous crafts. I am a woman who is forever 29. Artist. Married with furry and slimy children (cats, dogs, & fish). And, in case you can't tell by the blog name, I'm obsessed with frogs. :o) I'm ready to try new things...let's see where this journey takes me!
