Creation Station Blog Hop - It's the Season for Flowers


Hello and welcome, if you have come from the talented Jeanna Kay in the USA or you may of started with me from Australia. Please make sure you hope around and see everyone's projects. I'll pop a link at the end of my blog....

The design team at Creation Station are presenting their projects with the theme "Season" as we all live around the world and we all have different seasons. I'm in Melbourne and it's Spring time here with beautiful flowers blooming, birds singing and the days are getting warmer, but sometimes Melbourne can have all four seasons in one day!

I've created a water colour card, gift tag and gift bag for my project using the Quiet Meadow Bundle which is in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue 2021 to 2022. I love this bundle so much! The beautiful stamped images of flowers, background patterns and greetings are perfect for paper crafting. The images of the Meadow Dies create beautiful wild flowers and they are perfect for water colouring.

Starting with the card, using Watercolor Paper for the watercolour wash in So Saffron and Polished Pink Ink using the large brush Water Painter and lots of water. I also like to flick some ink onto the Watercolor panel and stamp the greeting in So Saffron ink.

The detailed flower Dies are also in Watercolor Paper, die cut out with the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. I applied different coloured inks to each of the flowers and stems. The colours are Polished Pink, So Saffron, Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Fresh Freesia, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce.

The greeting is in Fresh Freesia Ink onto Basic White Cardstock and die-cut out using the detailed stitched label Die. I also added three of the Loose Flower Flourishes Embellishments and White Baker's Twine.

I've created a gift tag to go with the Fresh Freesia Ombre Gift Bag, using the Tailor Made Tags Dies in different sizes. 

The smaller tag for the greeting, the second smallest for the Ombre tag in Fresh Freesia and the largest tag for the stamped images from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set.

The Ombre Gift Bags comes in a set of 20 bags 4 each of the 5 In Colors 2021 - 2023 and they are food safe. I've stamped the large flower image in Fresh Freesia Ink and the beautiful sentiment 'Heartfelt love and caring thoughts are with you' a number of times onto the gift bag.

Now it's time to visit the lovely Sara Nell Langland to see her amazing creations and visit her blog. I'm looking forward to reading all about her project and I'm sure you will too.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, I would so love hear your thoughts on my project by leaving a comment below.
