INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 32 - Botanical Blooms

Welcome to our first hop for 2016 - #INK032

Hope everyone had a great relaxing time
over Christmas and New Year.
You may have hopped across from Narelle and I can't wait to see what she has done...
If you have come to my blog first then grab a cuppa and sit n relax whilst you hop around all the blogs
Teneale has given us a fantastitic sketch - sometimes I over think these..
I should just go with what is in my mind
This is a square sketch and I don't do many square cards but let the adventure begin...
What size does everyone use for a standard square card... I used 5 inch card to start with. I knew that I wanted to use the new Botanical Blooms from the Occasions Cattie, so I started making flowers in Melon mambo and Blushing Bride and leaves in Old Olive with old olive ink stamped on them.

I used the striped paper from the Pretty Petals designer series paper stack in mint macaron - so pretty.
When I was putting the flowers together realised that I had no pearls left so that is why there are rhinestones in the middle. Stamped the words onto Hello Honey cardstock which are from Crazy about You stampset - so versatile!

 Hope you enjoyed my card for this blog hop.

Thank you for visiting
Now it is onto Barbara and I can't wait to see what to see what gorgeous creation 
she has made

Below is what I have used to make my card.

  1. Such a spectacular card Maree! I so love these floral framelits and can't wait to get my hand on a set. Really beautiful.

  2. Thanks Lissa I am loving them -making flowers in different colours but be careful with the framelits I lost one of the tiny ones for a couple of hours - but found it finally.

  3. Wow Maree, Love the use of the beautiful Floral Framelits in your card. Really Lovely. This set is one of my favourites too!

    1. Thanks Narelle I am loving them too and am making them in different colours....wait for the purple flowers.

  4. Maree, your card is simply stunning, it makes me want to go get out the stamps and dies and create one similar. I think Lissa Carter sums it up as spectacular.

    Very impressed with all today....................see we needed to get our hands firmly planted on our stamps again.

    1. Thanks Barb for all your kind words and I believe all the cards were amazing!!

  5. Maree, TOTALLY the most stunning cards I have seen created with this thinlit set. WOW o WOW.

    Hope your event went well.

    1. Thanks Teneale, loving this set and our event went well.
