Three Clovers Designs Thursday challenge - May Flowers and Cute Card Thursdays too!


EDIT - Sorry, I forgot to list the information on the flower stamp. It's Daisy Curls by Stampendous. Just click on the name. I've linked it to the stamp at Addicted To Rubber Stamping. Also - Thank you Claudia for leading me over to Cute Card Thursday!!

Happy Friday Eve!! It's Thursday and that means it's time to reveal the new challenge for Three Clover Designs. This week, Kerry is asking for May Flowers. I LOVE springtime with all the beautiful flowers and warmer weather! So I started by choosing this cute paper by My Mind's Eye with all the little flowers.


I fell in love with this flower stamp the moment I saw my friend Nikki use it last year! I had to immediately purchase it, and this is actually the first time I inked it up. I can't believe it took me this long to use it!! I stamped it several times and layered the flowers with dimensional tape.
I cut the word "hi" with my Expression machine and the Hello Kitty font cartridge. I cut it out six times with my Bazzill cardstock, and created the faux chipboard letters. Love the chunkiness of it!

I bordered the flower panel with strips of apron lace I got with my Martha Stewart border punch. I'm so addicted to those border punches!! Somebody stop me!!! I added some dew drops in the center of the flowers.


That's it for today! Please be sure and visit Three Clover Thursdays to see the fabulous projects the rest of the Inspiration Team came up with! We'd love it if you would join in and play along with us!! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit, and hope to see you back again soon! HUGS!
