A Fluffy Flower for a Friend

Creped Filter Paper Flower

One of the new products offered in the Spring catalog (which starts tomorrow) is Creped Filter Paper, which is a cross between crepe paper and coffee filter paper.  I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it, so I’ve been playing with it a little.  You can use punches with it, which is what I did with this card.  You can use it with dies, and you can dye it, which I also did here.  It comes in white.  I wanted to try dyeing it, so I added some ink from my Pretty in Pink ink refill and dyed it.  It was easy!

Well, I hope your new year is off to a good start!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:

Ink:  So Saffron, Island Indigo

Hexagon Madness

Hexagons are so trendy right now in the stamping world, and this week’s Tuesday Trigger over at the Moxie Fab World blog included them in a cute way.

The hexagons and crochet lace are what grabbed my attention in the picture, so that’s what I focused on for my card.  I loved the floral fabric, so I reached for the Twitterpated designer series paper.  One of the sheets in this package has a hexagon pattern, which makes a nice template for cutting out hexagons on any paper.  I keep hoping that someday soon Stampin’ Up will give us a hexagon punch (hint, hint for anyone who works at the Stampin’ Up home office and happens to be looking at this blog — probably no one :)).

So, anyway, here’s my card:

 Well, enjoy your Friday!   Thanks for stopping by!
