Welcome to a crafting extravaganza all week featuring myself and other Artists In Residence from IMAGINE Crafts, along with the Design Team Members of Authentique Paper and May Arts Ribbon.
I really enjoyed creating this bright, cheerful project! The papers from Authentique are absolutely gorgeous aren't they? And they match the May Arts ribbon perfectly.... seriously. PERFECT!
Here's how I created this card:
Step 1: On white cardstock, stamp the Dahlia flower (Sheena Douglass for Crafter's Companion) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Color with Spectrum Noir markers (GB7, GB5, GB4, GB1) and blendable colored pencils (88, 86, 21, 60, 57). Fussy cut and set aside.
Step 2: Cut all pieces of colored cardstock and large layer of patterned paper to size. Spray large piece of patterned paper with irRESISTable Texture Spray (Wedding Dress); set aside to dry.
Step 3: Die cut three other patterned papers and adhere to scalloped circles. Spray the smaller two circles as well as the previously colored flower with Sheer Shimmer Spritz (Frost).
Step 4: Outline the hexagonal pattern on largest die cut circle using Pico Embellisher (Wedding Dress).
Step 6: Adhere cardstock and patterned paper layers to card base. Tie gingham ribbon around card. Add colored twine to bow.
Step 7: Adhere remaining elements to card base.

All three participating companies in this week's Blog Hop will all be giving away 3 prize packages for leaving comments on the featured blog posts. Each day will we feature projects created by the artists from IMAGINE Crafts, Authentique Paper and May Arts. Simply visit their blogs and leave a comment on each post by midnight PST September 27th. We'll randomly select three different blogs from the seven days, then randomly draw one commenter from each blog as the winner.
Blog Hop Hint – if you click on a link that takes you to a page saying something like, “Sorry this page cannot be found,” just click on the header at the top of the blog (usually a picture, or the blog’s name), and it will take you to that blog’s most recent post. That post *should* be our hop. If not, you can probably scroll down a short way to find the hop post.
