Say it With Flowers

for the H2H Challenge

Each month, at the Heart2Heart Blog, we have a variety of paper crafting challenges for you. With spring right around the corner, we are inviting you to Say it with Flowers and show off your flowery designs.  Our Design Team has created some beautiful floral creations to inspire you this week. We would love for you to stop by the Heart2Heart blog, view each one of our creations, and join the challenge this month.  

If you are a member of my VIP Group, you had a chance to see me create this card first hand during my Fab Friday Find video.  The pattern for this floral creation came from our Make It From Your Heart Volume Four How To Book which features over twenty four card patterns that you can create.  I chose to alter this pattern a little, which I show in my video, but the inspiration for the card came directly from the how to book.

Being able to personalize a pattern is one of the reasons I enjoy our How To Books.  You can be inspired by a single pattern and use it as a launching point to make a beautiful creation. 

On my card, I chose to stamp some images from our Cherishing Her stamp set onto watercolor paper to create the background.  After shading it with watercolor pencils and adhering to the card base, I stitched a strip of vellum in place, added that whimsical bow paper, some black velvet ribbon, and layers of our Celebrate Today vellum die cuts.  I am a sucker for  on all those bright cheerful colors in the midst of winter. 

I hope that this card has inspired you to create a floral creation this week, and share that creation with us at the Heart2Heart blog.  While you are there, make sure to take a look at the other challenges we have for you this month.

These past few weeks I have been playing with our new Card Front Spinner Thin Cuts, and I was so excited when I discovered that the sentiments from the Cherishing Her stamp set fit perfectly.  Once I realized this, I wanted to design a special Valentine Card for our daughter to show her how unique, wonderful, sweet, and cherished she is. I hope she enjoys this Cherishing Her Spinning Valentine. 

The card front was cut from cold pressed watercolor paper then stamped using our Intense Black Ink so that I could shade the images with watercolor pencils without worry of the images blurring.  While the card front was drying, I stamped the sentiments onto the “wheel” portion of the card using Sapphire and Candy Apple Inks. The words “spin me” came from the I Chews You Stamp set which just so happens to be on sale this month. (hint hint

When I had finished stamping and shading all the images, I assembled the card using the instructions from the Card Front Spinner Thin Cuts. I had so much fun making this card that I spent the rest of the afternoon making two more Valentine cards using these dies.  If you are not sure how a Spinning Card works, you simply turn the wheel and the sentiments change. In the photos below, you can see how each sentiment changes with the spin of the wheel. 

How fun is that?! Each turn allows me to share how I feel about my daughter on my Cherishing Her Spinning Valentine.Personally, I think this would also make a lovely card for Mother’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, or just about any occasion where you want to show someone they are cherished.
