August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop "Floral Celebration"

Welcome to the Australasian CTMH Aughust stamp of the month blog hop, if you arrived here from Doreen's blog  you sre in the right place. If you arrived by chance I hope you like what I have created, you can continue the hop by clicking on the link at the end of this post.

The Floral Celebration stamp set has some lovely folk art looking flowers, lots of different leaves and sweet sentiments. I loved working with this set of stamps.

This card uses the sunflower looking stamp, nothing like sunflowers to brighten you special day. I am a real fan of kraft cardstock and really don't use it enough.The white embossed cardstock adds some dimension to this card.

My sister is one of those people who can turn their hands to anything, after taking cake decorating classes for one term at night school (many years ago), she created these special cakes. Even though this is a really simple layout I think the beautiful flowers lift it to something special.

I decided to use bright colours for this last card, my colouring in isn't always the best, so I stamped the flowers on patterned paper instead.To give my flowers a bit more demension I cut further into the edges of each of the petals and shapped them with a bone folder. I heat embossed my sentiment using white embossing powder. The white stands out so nicely on the blue cardstock.

I hope you have been inspired by my projects, now to see more great ideas hope along to Danielle at Scrappychicks I am sure she will have something wonderful to share.
