May Flowers Blog Hop!

Happy Flowers Blog Hop!

Since April showers bring May flowers we decided it was a good excuse to have a May Flowers Blog Hop! You are at the first stop of the hop so make sure to click through all the Design Team Members posts - they are all featuring flower cards on their blogs today with Newton's Nook Designs stamps! And of course there will be prizes (scroll down to the end of the post to see how to win) YAY! 

Here's what I created:

May Flowers Blog Hop! Happy Mother's Day floral card by Jennifer Jackson | Beautiful Blossoms Quilled Flower Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I used our Beautiful Blossoms stamp set to create a fun watercolor Mother's Day card! I stamped the three flowers from the Beautiful Blossoms stamp set onto yellow, pink and orange colored cardstock and embossed them with white embossing powder. Then I used the Beautiful Blossoms Die Set to cut them out. I wanted to use larger leaves than the stamp set had so I used the die that goes with the flower with the pointed edges and then cut it apart where the petals would have been to create leaves.

I added all three flowers and leaves to a watercolor background that I had created using Ken Oliver color bursts. Then I embossed the word "Happy" from the Simply Seasonal stamp set right over the watercolor with white embossing powder. I also embossed the "Mother's Day" from the Simply Seasonal stamp set onto a little strip of black cardstock and added it underneath. (I stole this idea from Samantha's bee card from last week - you can see it here)
