WOW - this is an amazing hop and I love the theme of sharing why we create.
This is a simple answer for me - I love to make things and to be creative. It gives me balance in my life. I hope that sharing what we create with Flora & Fauna will pass on inspiration and creative ideas to others.
Here are a few projects using a couple of our texture sets, our polka dot stencil and a chevron die.
Our chevron die is perfect for creating this pocket fold that is shown in some of the cards above. Simply cut a piece of cardstock to 41/4 x11 and place the die towards the top of the card. Then you will fold the card into the cut to create you card.
I also made a few different patterns of polka dot paper but ended up loving using the new Nuvo glimmer paste in Seaweed Quartz green the best!
Here you can see how the polka dot pattern is used on this chevron fold card.
It was also fun creating this plaid stripe pattern with a stamp for our texture 4 set and stamping it twice in both diagonal directions using a Fresh Ink Basil ink pad.
Now onto the blog hop, next on this list is Power Poppy! Have fun at the hop and don't forget to leave comments on all of the blogs for your chance to win some amazing prizes.
