Welcome to the September Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!
Each month a group of creative friends create a project for a theme. Below is an image of all of the crew and where they are from around the globe. Such a wonderfully talented and friendly group of people.
This months theme is Let's Take a Walk. So we are taking a walk in our local area and with that in mind creating a project. It is the beginning of Spring here in Australia and as I walk my puppy through our neighbourhood I am aware of all the flowers that are blooming and paying attention to the ones I have not seen before in particular. My puppy, however is just interested in sniffing the grass the whole way.
Below is an image of my neighbourhood where I walk my Puppy.
Here is a picture of my Puppy Maggie sitting under a gorgeous Magnolia tree in the centre of our town near my favourite shop, the Berry Tea Shop. Maggie is a 7 month old Groodle. She is the sweetest girl who loves to go for a walk. So, for this month blog hop I wanted to create something with lots of blooms. I settled on the gorgeous Garden Wallk Designer Series Paper before deciding to team it with the LAsting Joy stamp set. They really work well together.
This is my Birthday card made for a wonderful friend who is celebrating her birthday later this week.
I have kept the layout and elements simple as I wanted to show off this gorgeous DSP. It has become my favourite from the Mini Catalogue.
Stamping the flower in Poppy Parade and Wild Wheat in the centre and leaves in Pretty Peacock on Basic White card stock prior to fussy cutting each piece. I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and the surrounding Countryside Corner stamp set in Popy Parade. I left the cut flower border in as it worked so well too.
The central band is on the other side of the floral DSP and glued to the floral DSP. Perfect coordination. I popped the sentiment layer up on Dimensionals before adhering to the Countryside Corner stamped layer. Then popped these layers up on Dimensionals before adhering to the top of the band.
Before adhering the flower and leaves I tied a 20cm length of Linen thread in a double bow and adhered it to the bottom right of the Countryside Corner layer using Seal+. The flower and leaves are popped up on Dimensionals. The final thing is to place three of the Pretty Peacock Adhesive Backed Sequins aound the sentiment layers.
