Creation Station Blog Hop - Floral Fun!


Thanks for stopping by on this holiday weekend. I've had three extra kids at my house for the last four days so my creative time has been very limited. I did manage to squeeze out one cute project for this blog hop though! 

For this time our options were -  
  • Use Flower Patch or Flower shop stamp sets
  • Floral themed projects
  • Highlight the use of Watercolor Paper or Blender Pens

Flowers it is! I pulled out my Flower Patch stamp set that I hadn't used for a little bit and stood there staring at it. Turning, rotating and looking every which way at the stamps until an idea popped into my head. While this set is already filled with fabulous flower images, I created yet another one!


Yep, here's my own version of a flower with this set. Curious as to how I created it?


I used the small leaf from the set to create the flower petals! Starting from the left picture I stamped four leaves like a cross. Then I stamped one leaf in between each of those original leaves (middle picture). Then I went around again and stamped a leaf in between each leaf again. How simple and fun is that?! And I LOVE how it created a starburst shape in the center. 

I created these wonderful new flowers in Watermelon Wonder, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie colors. I added a few splatters from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Tuxedo Black and Pear Pizazz for visual interest. It's a little hard to tell but I also added Crystal Effects on top of the Whisper White "hello" to give it an epoxy look. It looks really neat in person!

So even though the set is full of flowers, here's another one to add to the list! Enjoy! Depending on where you started on this blog hop, you can go back and revisit Deborah's superb stamping skills or you can hop along to see what creative genius Martha has to share with you today! {Side note: I've been following Martha on her blog for a while now so I was ecstatic that she is now a part of our group!} Happy Stamping!
