FCD goes ABC...

Are you ready for a BLOG HOP?!?!?!? Well we are having one today for you to enjoy! If you are just getting started click here to get to Pamela's starting post...don't worry I'll wait for you to get back :) LOL If you are following along and got ot me then please read on....

The DT team for FCD goes ABC (Anything But A Card.) What are we talking about? Well Valentine's Day is not far away and we thought a few ideas of things you could make for your sweetie or friend would be a good hop to have. So please join us and see what kind of goodies you can make with the beautiful stamps from FCD!

I made a bouquet of flowers to give to a friend. I am not really going to do a tut on it as it was a PITA and I am sure there are much MUCH better ways to achieve the same results LOL so I will simply list the supplies I used so you know what stamp sets were involved.


Here is a wide shot showing some of the supplies:
Stamp Sets: Chin Up (for the "vase" cover I used the 2 hearts from this set)
Clearly Time (For the flowers - it is a 2 step stamping to make them)
Mahalo (for the leaves for the flowers)

Inks: All Palette Inks
Toile Pink, Belle Rose, Landscape, Orangerie, Sun Flower, French Lilac & Lavender Sachet


See how the flowers stand up pretty well on the stems. That is the paper and some glue in the center to keep them in position. The paper I used was:

Paper: GinaK Pure Luxury Card Stock 120lb.

it is a VERY STRONG paper and makes for nice sturdy cut out pieces!




Other Items:
Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon
Copic Marker YG63 (leaves and stems)
Copic Spica Glitter Pen in Lavender (for dots on the base)
Toilet Paper Roll (for the "vase")

Ok so now you see what I have done and I am linking you to the next stop which to be Pamela's BUT don't just stop there make sure you go on to the other DT members sites and see what goodies they have made also!
