Creative Design Boutique Blog Hop

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, our Creative Design Boutique Blog Hop is a little late this month., But , as they say, “better late than never.” This month we are spotlighting the set Floral Breeze by Rita Marie and Company. And BLOG CANDY is involved!!!

In looking for a layout, I went back to PageMaps and found this one, which was a little unusual – I liked the little “belt” across the main panel. I stamped one of the swirly flower images on a tag of SU River Rock, colored it with Prismacolor and Copic markers, and matted it with Always Artichoke. I stamped and colored a second image, cut out the flower, and popped it up on top of the first. I made my own DP for the horizontal panel using several of the smaller flowers in the set, stamping in both River Rock and Groovy Guava. I love these two SU In Colors from last year. The edges are cut with an EK Success border punch. For the background I chose Groovy Guava DSP, and the belt is held down with two small brads. The sentiment is a rub-on.

All images may be found at Creative Design Boutique.

Make sure you visit ALL of the blogs of the Creative Boutique design team, leave comments on ALL 6 of the Blog Posts; and a winner's name will be chosen from those posts on Thursday, September 17, and posted at 6 PM.
