Yellow, Orange and Red Small Blooms

The penultimate project from my Abstract/Shapes Papercrafting Class is this pretty colour wave of yellow, orange and red small blooms.

With a Thick Very Vanilla basecard, I chose Soft Sea Foam to look like a meadow for my accent colour.

After drawing a curve and carefully cutting along it, the pieces are stuck onto a Soft Sea Foam piece leaving a gap. The gap is for the flowers to sit in later.

The flowers are cut in a range of yellows, oranges and reds using the Small Bloom Punch. So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Bumblebee, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Poppy Parade and Real Red make my wave.

Each have a Champagne Rhinestone in the centre and the blooms are attached with Glue Dots. I find this is the best adhesive to use for attaching items like this – it is so much quicker and easier. My top tip is to arrange the flowers in the order you like before adding a Glue Dot. Then, start by adding the centre one first, and working out for an even look.

For the sentiment, I chose to use the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie, cut out using the Layering Circles Dies.

This is sat on the top of a swirl of the fabulous Basketweave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack from the Mini Catalogue. The copper of the ribbon works well with the champagne colour of the Rhinestones.Yellow, Orange and Red Small Blooms. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

I love being able to take projects, use the same design and make slight tweaks. Next week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa attendees may notice something very familiar when they make their project with me.

Pop back tomorrow to see the final project from this class.
