Hi Cyber buddies
Thanks for hopping by (do you see what I did there??? LOL) If you have found me via the Banana Frog blog hop welcome :) If you're a regular or you've just stumbled upon me you are welcome too :) and there is still chance to catch up on all the froglet inspiration spread across blogdom check out the Banana Frog blog here to start at the beginning so you don't miss anyone .... we wouldn't want that!
So this is the first of a monthly blog hop from Banana Frog and our theme this month is flowers. There are some gorgeous Flower stamps available from BF but me being me decided to show you stamped flowers with a twist :)
I'm also re visiting a previous Lilypad lesson that I did and full step by step instructions on how to make the roses are here. Basically these paper roses are normally made with heart shapes in descending order so looking through my stamp sets I have selected some different size hearts from the It's all about Hearts stamp set and the I heart you stamp set. I also added the perfect quote tile from the Build a Daisy stamp set
I stamped the hearts onto some patterned paper with some Black soot distress ink and cut them out.
They are assembled small hearts layer first building up to the large hearts layer. 4 hearts each layer and 4 layers in all but as I said check out my Lilypad lesson for more detailed instructions :)
The layers are then scrunched .... and I mean scrunched don't be afraid to really screw up the paper, it breaks the fibres and allows the paper to be manipulated more, once you've scrunched you unfold and mould the paper into petal shapes.
It is a super easy way to make home made flower embellishments and the different size heart stamps are perfect to add that extra patterned detail to your patterned paper.
As I said there are many lovely flowery stamp sets available from Banana Frog, I used the Super Dreamy stamp set on my latest Project of the day
and the Superlicious stamp set for last months colour focus
and this Lilypad lesson.
I love seeing how all the other froglets have made flowery projects with their stamps and hope you have had a lovely day hopping about being inspired to get stamping by them all! Oh and are you in the club? as in the tadpole club? 'A little bird' tells me you should check out the Frog for details!!!
