Today’s post rises to the occasion and wipes two challenges off my list. I always enjoy marking the things off the list as much as I do adding them. It creates a sense of accomplishment. It brings me great joy to know my creative days inspire others. The challenge on Late Night Stampers was to create a card or project using 3-D flowers. This beautiful flower was made using the hearts set of sizzlits dies and the heart to heart punch. Hope you will try one yourself!
Card Recipe: Stamps: Love You Much Paper: Chocolate Chip 4 1/4 x 11, 2 5/8 x 2 5/8, 2 3/8 x 2 3/8; Pink Pirouette 4 x 5.5, 2 1/2 x 2 1/2; Bella Birds 3 7/8 x 5 3/8 Ink: Chocolate Chip Accessories: Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, Eyelet Border & Heart to Heart Punches, Corduroy Buttons, Paper Snips, Pastel brads, Sponge Daubers, Large Glue dots
To make the flower cut 4 tall hearts, 4 wide hearts and punch 4 tall hearts. Sponge the edges of each heart with Chocolate Chip on front and back. Crumple each heart several times. Punch a hole in the bottom of each heart with the piercing tool. Thread a brad through each hole beginning with the punched hearts, then the tall hearts, and finally the wide hearts. Spread the hearts in a circle to form the flower. Thread the coruroy button with a small strip of paper. Tie in knot and trim ends. Attach to the flower center with a large glue dot. The card layout followed the MOJO Monday sketch #82.
I enjoy creating projects using a map, the card comes together so easily. When I teach my scrapbook classes I always design using a scrap map. Watch for tomorrow’s post. I will put up this month’s map and the page I created. Hope you have fun stamping today!
