|Itty Bitty blooms card|
Good afternoon bloggers, I hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend, even if the weather isn't fantastic.
Yesterday I entered my first challenge over at Less is more and I was absolutely overwhelmed by the responses I got. I was initially quite nervous, but all of the lovely feedback from everyone has sparked my interest in challenges now and the pick a square challenge was so inspirational that I made another card.
There is also a fantastic Stampin' Up challenge blog you should check out. The creations that the design team come up with are stunning, and it is a lovely way to see how other people use their Stampin' Up supplies. This week's challenge is floral frenzy so you are sure to see a wealth of ideas.
I got Itty Bitty Bits at the Stampin' Up regional training ( just another advantage to being a demonstrator) and I immediately bought the Itty Bitty Shapes punches pack. At £15.50 for three punches which coordinate perfectly with the images in the stamp set, it is a bargain. It also means that for under £25 you can buy the clear stamp set and the punches!
This card was made by stamping the eight petal flower stamp onto Whisper White card stock using Baja Breeze and Rose Red ink. I then used the coordinating punch to quickly punch out the images and set them out on a square of Basic Grey card stock. Once the pieces were in place I punched through the centre of the Baja Breeze flowers with my pricking tool to hold those in place and make it easier to put the white brads from the neutrals collection through the middle.
And this is the finished result.
I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you come back tomorrow for a week of "Because I care".
