Scraps of Color 1st Blog Hop

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I'm so excited!!!

Welcome to the Scraps of Color Creative Blog Hop!  Join us for a weekend of fun, creativity and prizes!  All weekend long you’ll have the chance to create fun projects, be inspired and win!   Get your crafty mojo flowing...just follow the 1st SOC Creative Team Blog Hop.

If you are here and following the blog hop then you are in the right place.  However if you have just happened upon my blog and would like to join in the hop please start at the beginning of the hop here and work your way through each blog. Please leave blog love (comments) along the way and become a follower of the blogs you like so that you can be notified of their new creations and updates!

My project for the hop is fit for the season. It's a springy birthday greeting card. I must say, I love-love-love my Copic markers. However, I decided to use another technique for the hop. To create the flowers, stamp flower images onto a printed piece of paper (Note: the smaller the print the better for stamping purposes); cut and ink the core of the paper with dark ink; shape the flowers pedestals in an upward motion; place a dimensional in between each flower to create volume; finally, spritz your flowers with your favorite shimmer mist. (Hint: Lightly mist the flowers with rose water to give them a since of life.) 






And I’m offering a prize for the items pictured below. All you need to do is leave a comment letting me know your favorite flower making technique and/or become a follower. Should you elect to do both, your name will be entered into the drawing twice to double you chances of winning some wonderful blog candy. I will announce the winner on Monday.




Remember,  some of SOC Creative Team Members are offering blog candy and you never know where you'll find it.  So be sure to visit each participating blog. I’ve made it easy for you to follow, just click the appropriate link below.  Thank you for joining us for the 1st SOC Creative Team Blog Hop!

I'm already a follower but, my fave flower making technique is to use a scallop punch on tissue paper and secure all the layers with a brad. Very frilly and full! LOVE THE CARD BTW!

Kristin said...

My favorite flower technique is to make paper rossettes, scoring a strip of paper at even intervals then folding it accordion style. Taping it end to end, flattening it out and then adding a button to the center to complete the process.

I love your way it really grabs your eye!!

I'm already a follower... I think my fav so far is using those inexpensive e.line flowers from Prima to make my own flowers. I can color them to match and glue them to make bigger, more realistic flowers.

i really love ur flowers and i think thats a wonderful idea u used to make them. i usually make flowers using my sizzix and getting some fat quarters and cutting them using the different pattern fabrics. securing them with a button in the center...or punching different flowers and balling and unballing the paper to give it dimension.

Treva said...

Beautiful card and flowers, can't say that I have a favorite techique since I usually just cut/layer! Thanks for the inspiration and sharing.

Cheryl L. said...

Great flowers! Since I'm already a follower, my favorite technique for making flowers is just pulling out the old fashioned punches and layering the pieces!

Pastor Joyce said...

My favorite flower making technique is to start with my Cricut die cuts, ink the edges, and jewel the centers.

very cute card.. i love flowers.. the flower technique i love the most.. I saw on youtube, its called lollipop flowers.. hanks for making this blog hop fun!

Renee said...

I love your springy card! It's so vibrant! My favorite flower making technique is pretty simple...cut a bunch of circles from your fav patterned or plain paper, add a brad to the center, and then cut slits in the paper up to the brad. It gives it volume,"fluff," and adds lots of dimension to your page or card.

VeronicaA said...

Your flowers are stunning! I don't currently make flowers since I'm still running with the "little dogs". Thanks for sharing and the opportunity to win.

Marionment said...

Your flowers are beautiful. I don't make flowers, but I am willing to learn. Thanks for a chance to win.

Natalie said...

I am already a follower. My favorite flower technique is to use a punch to punch out several circles. Then fold each circle on each side, place these on a bases circle and put a embellie in the middle.

I am already a follower. I love this card! Everytime we get together I love stamping on the pattern paper, so I would say this is my favorite technique. I also enjoy cutting out the circles in different sizes to make the flower.

Love your flowers. My fav flower making technique is poping open a pack of Primas and adding some stickles or glimmer mist. (smile)
