Love Blossoms Blog Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop where we are featuring the products contained within the beautiful, "Love Blossoms" kit, that is only available through the end of this month.

This kit contains items to create 12 beautiful greeting cards, with various sentiments. In fact, when you buy all the products together, you get them at a 20% discount.

Should you only choose to get the stamp set, these beautiful floral images and greetings, are great for various occasions. 

These are the beautiful pre-designed cards, although you can do with the supplies as you choose. For this Hop we were challenged to use the kit contents on our artwork so it will be fun to see what everyone has designed.

If you are coming from Haley's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants by clicking here.

In trying to decide what I wanted to do, after falling in love with the cards we created with the kit, I settled on using the spotlight technique. I have done it before, and seen it used, with floral images and thought this would be perfect for it.

I stamped the image multiple times on a piece of White Daisey cardstock and then used Raspberry ink to color the flowers, using the shaded image in the set. Because of the intricate details of the design of the solid images, there is natural shading provided, making it seem like I am a talented artist. I so love when that happens for me!

The leaves and purple flowers (of which I have no idea what they are LOL) were colored in, using the ink pads, with a Waterbrush Pen! (I love them!)

To create the spotlighted image, I first finished the floral piece of stamped paper. Then, I used the Thin Cut Circle to cut out an image. Using the stitched circle from the Shaker Card Thin Cuts, I cut the border out of Thistle cardstock. Both of those pieces were 3-D onto another circle.

While the card is a little busy from what I am used to, I truly love how it turned out; and I hope you do too!

(I CASEd this card design from Stampin' Savy.)

Thanks so much for stopping by and now, please head over to Cat's Blog. I'm totally excited to see what the other Consultants have created to share with us!

Happy hoppin'!
