FolkFlorals - STAMPlorations Blog Hop


It's Day 3 of the STAMPlorations release blog hop, and today we're concentrating on my newest design for my stamp range, The Bee's Knees - FolkFlowers.  Just look at all those possibilities!


I made a trio of cards.  Stamped some of the images several times onto patterned paper, then made three similar mixed media backgrounds using Mixed Media ElementsMixed Media Grunge and Artplorations Confetti Circles stencil, then added the fussy cut images.  The sentiment is from Dee's Balloons and Banners set.


Here's a look at each card:
