April Birthday Flowers with the Creation Station Blog Hop

The Creation Station Design and Blog Hop is back this month! I was beyond thrilled to be asked to join this group of talented women for a monthly blog hop to inspire you with creative top of the line projects with a theme from all around the globe! We hope that you hop thru each blog and leave comments as we all love to hear praise about our creations!

This month we were to cover Spring Flowers by using the Botanical Blooms Bundle! Well after cutting what seems like a hundred of those blooms for an upcoming Artisan project, I was well.....spent. But I managed to cut just one more set of blooms for this great card!
I started by first using the Happy Patterns Decorative Masks and Memento ink with a sponge dauber to color on top of Very Vanilla cardstock. I hardly use masks but I reallly like the effect it gives a card. Then I grabbed a pattern sheet of paper from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper in the Mint Macaron. I stamped the leaf from the Botanical Blooms Photopolymer Stamp set and cut with the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies. I ran all three flower pieces in the Big Shot with the same dies and a piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock. Finish off with the Basic Black Candy Dot and a piece of the 3/8" Stitched Basic Black Ribbon. The greeting is from the Balloon Celebration Photopolymer Stamp Set.
So I completed four cards for some friends who have April birthdays! I hope they like them!

Thanks for stopping by my post for the Creations Station Blog Hop!
Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.

Fabulous cards Cindy! Love the blod, graphic print of the stencil mixed with the spotty DSP and then the pop of the Watermelon Wonder flower. Fun and modern. Rochelle xo
