Thanks A Bunch

Happy Tuesday, everyone!! I hope your week is going well so far :) It's my turn to share a project with you today on the Craftin Desert Divas blog.


I am featuring the CDD Blooming For You stamp set today. I just love this set - so many fabulous sentiments plus an adorable bear :)


Heavyweight Kraft cardstock from The Paper Studio was used for the base. The papers are from Prima, and the edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA. I did something I haven't done in a while...I stitched the papers on the card. I used a strip of corrugated cardboard on the bottom and dry brushed it with Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Ink. The flowers are also from TPS, and I dry brushed Picket Fence on them as well. Floral Vines from Memory Box were cut in vellum and tucked among the blooms, as was hemp twine.


The tag is a Spellbinders Back to Basics tag. I used "Thanks a Bunch" from Blooming for You.


You can purchase this stamp set, as well as all of the stamps at the Craftin Desert Divas Shop. And we would love to see your projects using any of the stamp sets in our Craftin Desert Divas Gallery.



I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Scratched Up
  2. DL.Art - August Linky
  3. Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
  4. Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

My sweetest friend, this is simply stunning! (And I LOVE that we both returned to stitching this week! I'm gonna pretend we were crafting together, okay?) ;) You're so brave to do the fun zig zag stitch. Your distressing is spectacular and I love those large and beautiful flowers! Wow! You've designed with them to perfection. The papers are so pretty and I love the sentiment. It's just perfect for such a sweet bunch of flowers. Gosh I love all of the texture you included. The corrugated cardboard is amazing. :o) Wonderfully done as always, my sweet and talented friend! I hope you're having a twinkly night. :o)

This is stunning! What a knack you have for creating layers of textured yumminess! I adore the floral influence, but also really like the grungy scratchy look, too. I love how it looks elegant and rustic at the same time. Amazing use of different elements and materials and I applaud that stitching, too! Really lovely creation and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
