For my Card I've chosen the Garden Silhouette #600 stamp set.

What I did...

1.   Kraft card base measure 6 ½ x 5 ½

2.   Die-cut Sun Ray using StickerPaper. Add Crystal Ice glitter to it. Pop up the sun using dimensional foam tape.

3.   Emboss with Antiquities, cut out and color flowers from My Rose Garden using Prismacolor Pencils. Add glossy accents to the leaves and seed beads to the center of flowers. Add Moss Star embossing powder to the petals.

4.   Stamp and emboss the Garden Silhouette #600 using White Detail embossing powder on designer paper.

5.   Matting the DP with Kraft CS, lining the edge of Kraft CS with 1/8 Tear-ific Tape adding Peruvian Lily glitter on tape to create a border around DP. Add another layer of matting with white CS, pop up with dimensional foam tape.

6.   Stamp and heat emboss sentiment from Garden Silhouette #600 with WhiteDetail EP on Kraft CS and out line with PeruvianLily glitter.
For my Round Shadow Box using the Floral Flourish stamp set

What I did...

1.   Recycled a round cardboard packaging into a shadow box. To create an opening in the top lid but leaving enough space on the lid for adhering decorations, trace a circle and cut out with craft knife.

2.   Cover all surfaces with designer paper. To make the outer edge of the lid wider, from designer paper cut a circle wider in diameter than your lid and using Martha Stewart punch to give a decorative edge. Using the negative that was cut from the opening of the lid, trace and cut the opening from the designer paper as well. Layer the decorative edge circle on top of the lid to give it a nice finish. The openings will match up perfectly.

3.   Stamp, cut out and color Floral Flourish using Prismacolor Pencils. Add SunnyDaze and Fiery Fushia.
4.   Stamp, emboss and color the largest rose from My Rose Garden three times. Leaving the first stamp image intact, cut off the outer petals from the second stamp image, then cut off the two layers of petals from the third stamp image leaving just the rose bud. Use dimension adhesive in between each layer of the rose to give a 3D effect.
5.   For wooden butterfly, outline each section with Dimensional Glue adding HanaumaBay, Luau Green, Sunny Daze and FieryFushia glitters.
6.   Stamp sentiment or title from Bird House and cut out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banner. Curl banner and pop up with dimensional adhesives.
7.   Adhere ribbon around the outside of shadow box, leaving a loop at the top for hanging on a wall.
Note: To get the Flourish on the left hand side, the image was stamp, scanned and flip.

I hope you have enjoyed our hop this month and thank you for your patience.
Thanks for stopping by :-)
