Let's Hop!


Hi all and welcome to the kick off of Flourishes' December release! Today the entire Flourishes Design Team is ushering in a challenge and YOU could walk away winning all of Flourishes' new sets for December! Here's how to get in on the fun. We're going to HOP and at each designer's blog, there is another clue for our progressive challenge! 

If I am your first stop on the hop, you'll need to travel back to the Flourishes blog HERE to get your first clue and follow the hop through each of the designers' blogs. By the end of the hop, you'll have 8 "ingredients" that you'll need to use when creating your cards for this Let's Hop Challenge. Follow the "recipe" and you'll be in the running! 

So, let's get on to clue number 2.....


STEP 2: For this step of the progressive challenge, you'll need to use a floral. It's just that simple! Use a floral image, a floral accent, a floral decorative paper, etc. Just make sure somewhere on your card you have something with a floral flair. 

On to my creation...

I decided to go a wee bit overboard on the floral with this one - I have a floral decorative paper (Meadowlark Prima paper) and then, my image is a floral as well! I started by cutting out the shape of the bell flower using the With Gratitude Silhouette Cameo Cut File. After that, I stamped the flower on the shape using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored up my flower with Copic makers (see supply list below for colors). The rest is matting it up! I used the brand new Flourishes Custom Die called Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals and used not only the largest die in the set but the small tag die as well. 

Here's a peek at that lovely piercing that is a part of the die. No piercing template or piercing tool needed for this one! 



And, here's a peek at the cute little tag! The sentiment "Hello" is from Flourishes stamp set called Cherry Blossoms. I tied it on using some Silver Cording and wrapped it around a bow that I made using  the Elderberry ribbon from the Crocus Color Made Easy Collection. 


And that, my friends, is it! If you want to try your hand at winning Flourishes' December Release, you have until Friday, December 14th at 5PM EST to get your entry or entries in!
