Hooray for Friday! It's time for another Stamp Simply challenge! I took a little break from the challenges this past month, and have come to the decision to continue that break permanently, so this challenge is bittersweet for me. I recently started on a new exercise program and am trying to eat healthier and lose some weight (I've lost 7 pounds already this month!), and have found that I could use just a little extra time in my week to devote to these endeavors. So with a heavy heart, I have decided to leave the Stamp Simply team. Sharon has always been wonderful to work with, as are all the girls on the team, so I hope you'll continue to play along with the challenges each week!
The challenge for today is to use 3-D flowers! You can dig into your stash of purchased flowers, like Prima flowers. Or you can create something with ribbon, or use your punches and/or Nestabilities and some designer paper to create a gorgeous flower! Let's see your beautiful May flowers!
I decided to use this yummy new paper I just got from My Mind's Eye, and I used my big scallop circles Nestabilities to create my paper flower today. I crumpled up all 4 pieces, inked the edges of each one with Tea Dye distress ink, then secured them all together with a button in the center. Easy-peasy and just a tiny bit of stamping here with the sentiment from Whipper Snapper!Sharon has a fabulous sample for you on her blog, and the Stamp Simply team has some fabulous inspiration for you too, so be sure to check out their blogs!
