April's SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to another BLOG HOP featuring APRIL's Stamp Of The Month
Grab yourself a comfy seat and click away at each person's creation using the featured stamp set...

FLOWER POT (set of 16)

If you have arrived from Dawn's site then you are on the right track.....

I made up a fun little Thank You card using this flowery stamp set.
It includes the "THANKS" sentiment on the card and some other phrases as well.




I did a little paper piecing and here is how:
I stamped the flower pot onto Vineyard Berry Cardstock and I cut it out,
I then sanded it lightly and pop dotted it off the card for dimension.

I also stamped a second bouquet of flowers onto VERANDA B&T duos (same as the background) and cut out the leaves. I then glued the leaves right on top of the stamped image.

I also had some of the fun rhinestone flowers from an extra sheet of the Connections Club Reward so I added those over the little flowers from the stamped image.

I sponged some chocolate ink around my White Daisy edges. Finished it all off with a White Daisy grossgrain bow.

Next stop on the hop is Shannon's site, be sure to hop on over and see what she has made!
