Sweet Stampin' - Anything But A Card

Hello and good morning everyone ---

I've made my Sweet Stampin' Design Team project for you this week. Our theme is 'Anything But A Card' - and I have to admit to struggling with this one. Mind you it was mainly because I'm still getting over the effects  of the flu from last week. Anyhow, for my project I finally decided to make some flowers using my We R Memory Keepers Flower Punch Board which I've had for ages. But because we are a stamping challenge I stamped onto some of my card first before making my flowers to add a little interest.  

Here's What I Did
I made the smallest (XXS) flowers possible on the We R Memory Keeper Flower Punch Board - these have a diameter of 3". For each of the cream flowers I cut a strip of cream cardstock to size and stamped each of them with a few different flower stamps and coloured them in with Prisma Pencils.  I punched out my cream flowers, assembled them and added them to the flower attachments and stalks. I then created a another 3 flowers from orange card stock.

To finish off  I added a touch of glitter to the cream flowers and I added enamel dots to all the centres.

Here's What I Used
Stamps: Hero Arts 'Dotted Flowers', Hunkydory 'Floral Chic'
Paper/Cardstock (CS): Cream CS, Orange CS
Prisma Pencils: Canary Yellow, Sunburst Yellow, Orange, Process Red, Limepeel
Other: We R Memory Keepers Flower Punch Board, Flower Accessory Pack, Glitter
So why not drop by the Sweet Stampin' Challenge blog and check out what my fab Design Team girlies have made to inspire you. So come on why not join in with the fun and enter your card/project into our 'Anything But A Card' challenge we'd love to see your entries.
