Hello everyone! Hope the new week is off to a great start for you all!
It’s time for a new challenge at The Flower Challenge and we have a special one this month! The Flower Challenge is turning 5!!!!! YAY! Huge congratulations to the whole team and especially to our fearless leaders, Aileen and Vivien ! Thank you for all your effort to bring this challenge up to this awesome platform for cardmakers to play on!
The theme for our birthday challenge is USE A SHAPE!
There is tons of prizes to win in this month. Some generous companies are sponsoring us and also some of our team members are offering prizes. Please check out The Flower Challenge blog where you can see all the awesome prizes!
I stamped three squares from the Confetti Shapes Square set on a white panel in an embossing ink and heat embossed them in white. To add colors to the confetti squares first I cut the negative masks using the coordinating dies and ink blended each square through the negative mask in Soft Ash, Peach Blossom and Meadow.
I wanted to make the squares into gift boxes. I ink blended some scrap cardstock in the same colors like the squares and cut the ribbons and bows using the string die from the Confetti Shapes Circle set and the bow dies from the Confetti Shapes Square set.
The poinsettias and holly leaves and berries are from the Holiday Coloring Bits set. I stamped the images in a light ink and no line watercolored them. I cut them using the coordinating die and arranged them on the card as shown in the picture. For more festivity I added some white and green Mini Sprigs to the poinsettia arrangements.
The sentiment is from the Confetti Shapes Star set. Three tiny rhinestones on the bows finished off my card!
Hope you will play along!!!
Have a great week!
