CBD Spring Flowers Blog Hop


It is time for one of my favourite activities, a Blog Hop!

Yes, at Crafting By Designs, the Design Team is having a Blog Hop to celebrate the arrival of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. With spring goes Flowers and that is what we are showing you today.

You should have arrived here from the fabulous and inspiring blog of Julia.

Our generous sponsor, QKR Stampede let us play with some of their fabulous images. My choice is the lovely Accent Vine. I just loved it when I first saw it!

I printed out 2 images side by side and coloured it in 'vintage' colours. The panel was cut out & the corners rounded. Encore Metalic inkpad in Honeydew edge the panel. An organza ribbon adds some more detail. The card is the same green as the vine and a maroon panel anchors the panel. I tried to create a vintage feeling with my colours & colouring to compliment the gorgeous image.

My card:

A close-up of the panel:

A little bonus to say thank you to our generous sponsor QKR Stampede (remember to visit their website!), a little tag I made using the Apple Blossom Label. The image was coloured with pencils, fussy cut and layered onto black board which was also fussy cut. I added glitter and wrote the sentiment with a calligraphy pen.

Thank you for joining the Hop...please tell us if you enjoyed it! Oh, and do go back to the Crafting By Designs blog if you get lost. But that is not the only reason. Once you have finished the hop and you are all inspired, go and create a fabulous Spring Flower card and link it to the blog to stand a chance of winning 5, yes five fabulous images from our Blog Hop sponsor, QKR Stampede. If you have visited their website, I know you wouldn't pass up this chance to win!

Your next stop is Sharon where you'll see more fabulous Spring Flower creations.

Do visit again!

Rene, you have done an amazing job using the QKR Stampede stamps. I like the idea of doing a mirror image. Great ideas.
