Hi Stampers, welcome to my Creative & Chaotic craft room! Today’s project features a Broke Stampers Unite challenge using Flower Shop.
This challenge was a little different than normal. Usually, Carol, Terri and I get together online and decide what challenges we will be doing for the month. Sometimes we even figure out more than a month in advance depending on the holidays. This week, it was down to the wire!! It was MONDAY MORNING we decided. Holy smokes.
During my day, I had doodled a little sketch of what I wanted to do. Which was very similar to this card. In my drawing, I had three flowers along the edge of the circle. In reality that was too crowded. i decide to take my three flowers I punched and make one multilayered flower instead. (You must let creativity take you where it needs to go 🙂
I used Tempting Turquoise for the base. I sponged Pumpkin Pie onto some glossy white card stock I found that was retired who knows when…. I stamped and punched my flower with Pumpkin Pie. I stamped the verse with Old Olive. I used the Bird Builder Punch for the leaves. Candy Dots are the center of the flower.
Have you ever thought of joining us for one of our challenges, current or past? i discovered, as I am staying up late to finish my card, these challenges make me take time out for myself no matter what is going on. I have moved within the last month. Cleaning an 8 room house to move into a 3 room apartment is no easy task. I spent a good part of my day with fifty 12-13 year olds on a school bus. (Yes, I took a nap when I got home!) However, the time I spent creating this card, gave me time to myself, to do something for myself.
With all that being said, let’s check out what creations are on Carol’s blog and Terri’s blog. Take some time to be creative and share with us on our Facebook page.
