Craft Hoarders Anonymous - Challenge #15 - All the Pretty Flowers

Monday, September 1, 2014

Hello bloggers,

I hope you all are enjoying your long weekend.  Are you ready for the children to go back to school.  I am sure some if not most of your children have already gone back.  I can't believe my grand-daughter is going into the third grade!  Time sure does fly when you are having fun.

This challenge is for all of you flower hoarders! Maybe you hoard pre-made flowers. Maybe you hoard flower punches or dies. Maybe you hoard flower stamps. "Dig" out those flowers and use them on your project!  This challenge is sponsored by Heartfelt Creations and Crafty Secrets.  We will have two prizes for this challenge.  For more details and rules, go to Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog.

Here is my take on this challenge.  I love fall colors and I especially loved the Crafty Secrets papers.  There were so many to pick from, but I decided on these.  If you love to make fall/Halloween cards, Crafty Secrets has a wide variety of elements and papers to chose from. The flowers are from Heartfelt Creations, Arianna. Loved making them, I printed out some of Crafty Secrets paper, stamped the flowers on it, and then cut them out with the spellbinder die Arianna Blooms and inked them with Tim Holtz, vintage photo and used the 3D Stamp paint, Copper. Love how it turned out, I love the orange and black colors together.  Well it's your turn.  Get your hoard of flowers out and start making your project, i can't wait to see what you create.
