Papertrey Ink May 2013 Blog Hop

Nichole's challenge for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop this month is to use one of her Bouquet Builder color schemes to create a floral project. All the color schemes are gorgeous, but this inspiration photo really jumped out at me.

2-Shades-of-Pink-Bouquet


My plan was to create a stamped bouquet with the Happiness in Bloom stamp set, but after a few frustrated attempts I gave up and started playing with the Beautiful Blooms II #1 die set instead.

My tissue paper buds are created by folding pieces cut with the smallest die. I have one of the multi-color packs of tissue paper from Michaels and was pleasantly surprised to find almost all the colors I needed - the only ones I didn't have were Hibiscus Burst and Ripe Avocado.



The banner & sentiment are from Bountiful Banners and the leaves are cut from one of the Lovely Layers dies. You can see that foam adhesive helps add a little extra dimension to my big pink bloom.




I hope you have something fun planned for your weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie

  18. So pretty, Jacquie! Love your little tissue buds and the use of the banner! I appreciated your comment and wanted you to know, the yellow center of my bright pink flower was just a punched flower...I cut each petal down the center and then lifted every other petal piece to kind of separate them and add dimension. Just wanted to share since you thought it was a die. I did it on a whim but really liked it and will be doing it again!

  27. Oh my goodness, this is brilliant! I absolutely LOVE this. I think that Beautiful Blooms die is my second favorite PTI floral. I love how you made the little blooms with the colored tissue papers, and the background and leaves are perfect. Home run out of the park, here. ;-)

  28. OK. Your card is so great that I won't even read all those comments or I won't have anything original to say. I love the splash of color on the crisp embossed background. I have these dies and never thought to fold the flowers into buds. And I'm putting Bountiful Banners in my cart right now! Thanks for sharing this fabulous creation!
