Paper Crafting Blog Hop -Forever Blossoms


Welcome to the Paper Crafting Blog Hop! Our April 2022 blog hop includes Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world!  Talented Demonstrators from all over the globe including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia are participating!  You'll be wowed by a variety of creative projects and design styles!  You may have arrived from Sue's Blog...I hope you were inspired by her project!

We are featuring projects using flowers this month. Below is the card that I created using the Forever Blossoms stamp set and coordinating Cherry Blossoms Dies, both from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  Unfortunately, the Forever Blossoms stamps are sold out, but the Cherry Blossoms Dies are available for just $18!

I used the bright and cheery Granny Apple Green Cardstock and Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon.  The flowers were stamped in Soft Suede Classic Ink (stamped off first for a more subtle look) and then colored with Watercolor Pencils.  

The stitching was created with the Stitched with Whimsy Dies and the Iridescent Rhinestones add a bit of sparkle.  Scroll down to see all supplies used.

Because the stamps are now unavailable, you could always swap out another floral branch to recreate this card using the same design!  A great option would be the Blessings of Home Bundle shown below.
