Creating Kindness Blog Hop - Spring Fling

Good Day Crafty Friends,

I am super excited to be participating in my very first blog hop in over a year! When Jay asked if I would like be guest designer for this months CREATING KINDNESS BLOG HOP I jumped at the opportunity.

I also got to chose this month SPRING FLING theme for the Design Team to create along to. It’s going into Autumn here in Australia but I know on the other side of the world they are about enjoy all the wonders of spring. 

Nothing says spring to me more than new bulbs shooting everywhere. Western Australia has a phenomenal wild flower season during our spring so I was inspired by the little wild daisies that are dotted everywhere during this short lived event.

For today's creations I’ve used my all time favourite punch to create my daisies combined with the True Love Designer Series Paper. 

Slimline cards are all the rage at the moment. The only issue can be finding the right sized envelope. A quick and simple solution is to wrap the card in vellum and secure close with a decorated vellum band.

Here is a close up of the embellished belly band. DSP has been cut to the exact width of the vellum band and decorated using the Detailed Bands Die, Ribbon, Stitched Shapes & Pierced Blooms Dies.

While I had everything out on my workspace I decided to create a couple of standard sized cards as well. Using embossing folders for the card bases, DSP, punched daisies and heat embossed sentiments were added along with die cut elements created using the Pierced Blooms Dies.

That is all from me today, friends. Thanks so much for stopping. It was such a pleasure to be part of the creative blog hopping community again!
