Basket of Bumblebee Flowers — Monday Montage #169

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

Since I still had the Basket of Blooms stamp set on my desk from my previous post, I thought I’d play with it some more and use one of the other stamps, the basket.  I also wanted to play with one of the new In Colors, Bumblebee.

I started by stamping the basket and three of the blooms and stems of leaves on some whisper white card stock and then colored them with my markers.  I then punched out the flowers with the Small Bloom Punch and cut out the rest with my paper snips.

One of the dies from Nature’s Thoughts was used to cut out the rectangle with the pretty edging.  I love this detail!  I then arranged the basket of flowers and adhered them down with some Mono Multi Liquid Glue and small dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Forever Fern stamp set.  The sequins are from a recent Paper Pumpkin kit.

I sponged some Bumblebee ink on the card base focusing on the bottom left corner to balance the card since the blooms are on the right side.  I added some splatters as well.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog.  I always love seeing what she makes!  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing.

A Blooming Pot — FMS444

These Summer weeks are flying by and it’s already time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our very talented friend, Jennifer Timko, is our hostess.  Take a look at the fabulous sketch she has provided us:

Wanting to play with a stamp set that I hadn’t inked up yet, I reached for the Basket of Blooms set, which I thought would work perfectly with this sketch.

I started by sponging on some Balmy Blue and Sahara Sand inks onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I then stamped the leaf images from the stamp set and colored them with my markers.

The blooms and flower pot were stamped on a piece of white card stock and cut out with paper snips and the red blooms coordinate with the Small Bloom Punch.  The sentiment is from the Monogram Messages stamp set.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
