OSAT May Fabulous Floral Blog Hop

Happy Thursday to you! It is already the second Thursday of the month!!! Can you believe it!? The kids will be out of school in just two weeks and it seems like no matter what I try to schedule there is always a conflict! Here is a great example, Wesley had a doctors appointment scheduled for Monday. They moved the track meet to Monday instead of Tuesday... So before figuring out he was not going to be eligible... I moved it to today! Phew!!! WRONG... So yesterday, I am hard at work stamping my hands off.... I get an email from Wesley "Mom I can't go to my appointment tomorrow, I have my Ameritown trip".... I kind of wanted to pull my hair out!

The One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop is live this month with a Fabulous Florals theme. I have been showing a bit of new stuff recently, but lets take a look at one of my favorite retiring colors Powder Pink and a great returning favorite Beautiful Bouquet! 

First let me say... This was not what I had in mind when creating for today's hop. I had started a Mini Album with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley... Then, I talked my self out of completing it and designing a card. I knew that I wanted to create with something that we have right now and maybe even something that will be retiring... Well the good news Beautiful Bouquet and the Bouquet Bunch are coming back in the new Annual Catalog. Bad News, I used the retiring In Color Powder Pink. This pink is by far one of my favorites. I stamped many flowers from the stamp set in Poppy Parade, Powder Pink and So Saffron. I accented the centers with Soft Suede. The stems are stamped with Pear Pizzazz ink and for some extra dimension I die cut it as well out of Pear Pizzazz card stock. This is nicely laid out on a Stitched Shape Oval on a Champagne Foil Scalloped Layering Oval. This is adhered over a Pear Pizzazz Corrugated embossed strip and a Powder Pink Polka Dot strip using Stampin' Dimensionals. This is nicely layered onto a Pinewood Planks Embossed piece of Whisper White that is on a mat of Powder Pink card stock and a card base of So Saffron!

Here is a bit of a closer look at my bouquet! You can also see that I have accented some of the flowers with the Clear Wink of Stella and droplets from the Clear & Frosted Epoxy Droplets. You can also see my nice little Linen Thread bow that ties on my Classis Label punched "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set (Which also returns)!

My Cute Tufted embossed purse is quick and relatively easy! It is a 2" x 6" piece of card stock that I scored to fit around two Nuggets that wrapped in DSP, I decided to use the NEW Delightful Tag Topper punch, this will be available to you June 4th but it was perfect for this little project!
