Creation Station: Flower Patch!

Hey, Hey, Hey!!!  It's that time again!  C'mon into the Creation Station for your ride on the Inspiration Train!

We've got a group of mighty talented folks ready to show you all you can do with:

- Masks/Stencils
- Flower Patch Stamp Set, Flower Fair dies
- and garden inspired cards and creations!

Up first for my projects, a little useage with our new Hearts & Stars decorative masks....I chose the stars...

I simply laid the mask over my card and spritzed with some Bermuda Bay Ink diluted in rubbing alcohol.  I let that dry really well before I embossed my sentiment with Crushed Curry embossing powder.  Add a strip of DSP (great use of scraps!) and a few snippets of Washi Tape....Easy Peasy and a great mailer!

Next up!

I used just the Flower Fair dies with some DSP to create a flower.

I stamped the leaf images from Flower Patch onto Typeset DSP for some interest.  Layered all this up with some burlap trim, a little crocheted lace on top of another piece of Typeset DSP.

The background DSP comes from Flashback...I think I'm gonna love this set of papers more than I thought....the catalog doesn't do them justice at all.

Okay...last card!

This time I stamped several of the flowers from Flower Patch in Daffodil Delight.  I stamped the leaves in Coastal Cabana.  The great thing is that you can stamp an entire sheet of flowers and leaves and only make a couple of passes thru the Big Shot. 

I layered my sentiment onto a piece of burlap trim that I die cut with the large scallop edgelit.  I like that it just peaks out a little bit - flirting with you kinda!

Everything here is on a base of Typeset DSP that I spritzed with that same Bermuda Bay/alcohol mixer and the Dots mask from Dots & Stripes.

Well....that's all I have for you today, but there is more inspiration right around the corner - head to the next blog by Ilina Crouse and you'll be filling up your brain with ideas galore.  Or put it in reverse to Deborah's creative ingenuity!

LOVING how you did the decorative mask over the dsp! Gives it a lot of depth and interest. =) Thanks for sharing Jen!

I received the Dots and Stripes masks and the Typeset designer paper at Convention. Love the way you combined them for your background. I know what I'll be playing with soon.

Great cards, Jen! I like the addition of the spritzing with the masks for background.

Oh my goodness! These are all amazing. Your colour combos are perfect and I'm loving the detail and texture you have layered up and added to each project! Just perfect. Thanks for sharing xx
