Welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! There are 20 of us from around the globe who will be sharing our projects with you twice each month. All you need to do to follow along is click on the link at the bottom of each post.
Our theme for this month is “May flowers.” We had three different stamp sets from which to choose, and for this hop I chose the Grateful Bunch stamp set and coordinating Blossom Bunch Punch.
I have a daughter whose favorite color rotates between yellow and orange. She loves sunny, happy colors. And her name starts with a “K.” I found these fun wooden letters at a local big box store and decided to decorate one for her room.
I stamped these fun flowers using Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist and Pumpkin Pie ink and punched them out using the coordinating punch. This is a project that looks like it would take a long time to create because there are so many flowers. But it really didn’t take that long because the stamp and punch make three flowers at a time. I just used glue dots to adhere all of the flowers to the monogram.
I made a bow from the Pumpkin Pie 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon and a few strands of the White 1-1/4″ Jute Ribbon and a Very Vintage Designer Button. I had to get a little ribbon-tying lesson from fellow Artisan, Connie Collins. She ties beautiful bows and was so kind in giving me a quick lesson across the miles. Love her!
I made a little coordinating gift card to enclose with the monogram letter. I used the Epic Alphabet for the letter “k.”

I LOVE this!! Beautiful! Did you color or cover the letter with anything before putting on the flowers?
No, it came this way — it has a white finish.
Even better! Everything I find is unfinished wood. Maybe I’m not looking in the right places.
Wow! What a gorgeous decor project. So many pretty flowers Amy.
