Three Amigos May 2017 Blog Hop Challenge

Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog Hop. We are three Close To My Heart Independent Consultants with a love for stamping and scrapping, and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd of each month, we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout, or other project. There are only three stops on this hop, so it will only take a few minutes to hop through. When you finish hopping, be sure to check out the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge!

This month we are sharing projects using the Little Dreamer paper pack (papers or featured colors) from the new Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book. The featured colors are black, blossom, emerald, glacier, lagoon, lemon, tangerine, thistle, and white daisy.

I decided to make a card using a few of the featured colors (black, tangerine, thistle, and white daisy). I made a card base from thistle cardstock and lined the inside with tangerine cardstock.  I stamped flowers from the Keep Dreaming Stamp Set with black Momento ink along the bottom of a piece of white daisy cardstock using the masking technique. Then I trimmed the bottom edge, following the lines of the flower petals. I stamped and fussy cut four extra flowers. Using tangerine and thistle inks, and a couple sponge daubers, I added a touch of color to the center of each flower. The sentiment is from the Sending Smiles Stamp Set, which is part of the Flower Market Cricut Bundle.

Three of the extra flowers are popped up using thin 3-D foam tape for a little added dimension. The centers are adorned with clear sparkles.

I added the fourth extra flower to the inside of the card to finish it off.

Thanks for hopping by today! Hop over to Lisa's Blog and Donna's Blog to see what they created for you, then over to the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge. We hope you play along!

  1. Beautiful! Love that you didn't use the papers for this but instead the colors! Love the pretty!

    1. Thanks you, Lisa! It was fun to let the stamp set and the colors be the design instead of the patterned papers.

  2. Great job on picking up on the combination of colors and making something without using the design papers...great masking and love the layering of the other flowers and the addition of color on each flower. Very pretty card.

    1. Thank you, Sue! I love the masking technique. I played around with other color combos too, but this one was my favorite.

  3. I love how you popped up the flowers! And the inside flower too!

  4. Cute flowers to make a pretty card!
