Here is what I have created with this weeks deals!
I have to say, I wasn’t a very big fan of flowers, when I first met Curtis (my Husband) he was always sending me gorgeous flower bouquets. I immediately thought to myself “uh-oh i don’t even like flowers, but I don’t want to her his feelings” they were beautiful but I knew they were gonna end up dying so I couldn’t get to excited…lol one day I told him (nicely) ” Instead of sending me flowers can you send me balloons” and he looked at me like I was crazy..lol but after I explained to him that they are pretty but they die, they are super expensive and balloons make me happy and last a lot longer 🙂 he understood 🙂
The same thing was happening when it came to ordering new stamps, I always skipped right passed the flowers, because I really didn’t have any ideas for creating with them. Well as you can tell from my previous post, I have been in floral lala land..lol I took a chance on my self and put my self up for the challenge of creating with floral stamps. I bought 2 stamp sets, one being Pleasant Poppies and the other being Indescribable Gift. My goal is to make 10 different projects from each stamp set 🙂 so stay tuned.
This is Tri-Fold Easter card I made using both the Pleasant Poppies and Indescribable Gift stamp sets. I added lots and lots of colors using various Stampin’ Up! stamp pads and the Aqua Painters. Isn’t so pretty!! all the products I used are listed below.
Here is Day 5 on my Series 😉 I am having so much fun creating some great Holiday projects! Believe me, if I could I would craft all day long!! But I have kids and they are not havin’ it…lol so enjoy this video and let me know if you have any questions, Thank you for following my series.
Before I forget…
