Simply Inspired Blog Hop - Seasonal Expressions


Welcome to the Simply Inspired Blog Hop!  We are showcasing projects using brand new product from Seasonal Expressions Volume 1.  

If you arrived here from the lovely and talented Lisa's blog, you are in the right place!  

My project started with a whole lot of random stamping and coloring...


I used the stamp set Friend in Me and Shinhan markers.  I colored the flowers with are Peony Purple, Tender Pink, Turquoise Blue, Leaf  Green, Golden Yellow, and Light Orange.  I didn't like the stark white background, so I filled it in with the Pastel Peach marker.

Then I cut the paper into 4" x 3" rectangles to insert into our black display tray.


I wanted this project to be about my sisters, so I simply added some purple and gold glitter mats, black and gold ribbon, and a heart charm.


Your next stop is the incredibly sweet and creative Sheri!


This is the beautiful floral stamp set I used for my project:
