Fusion Flower


Good morning, all!  I'm playing along with two challenges with this card.  Both the sketch and the photo at the latest Fusion challenge inspired the design.  I love the grey polka dot paper and found a pretty good match in my stash.  The flower is an oldie (but goody!) Hero Arts cling stamp.  Since I used the HA stamp, and it's a clean and simple card, I'm also entering it into A Blog Named Hero's CAS challenge.  I used up a lot of bling in the centre of that flower!  The stash of gems I got from my Christmas trip to Chicago is dwindling fast.  Oh to have a Michael's in Bermuda!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Kraft) Gina K., (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Dots & Stripes Metropolitan collection) Echo Park
Stamp:  (Flower) Hero Arts
Ink:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Black) Ranger
Die:  (Pop Up Thanks) Memory Box
Gems:  Recollections

Jenn this is fantastic, great fusion!

Lindsey said...

This is awesome, Jen! What a great way to use both Fusion inspirations. I like the thanks diecut from the patterned paper stripe. And of course the bling. ;)

I have run out of most of my individual colours of bling - right now all Dollarama carries is strips. Ugh! I want my littles back. I'll keep an eye out & stock up for you too if they get some back in!
BECAUSE, bling is meant to be used, not hoarded :) Super bling & still CAS. You totally rock that :)

AWESOME take on the sketch, Jen! I love how you made the "thanks" out of the same polka dot paper! And that blinged-up blossom? Shut up stunning!!

Glorious and sooo sophisticated, Jen! Love how you combined the challenges with an oldie but goodie HA cling stamp.
