Perennial Essence Artistan Design Team Blog Hop...

I love this day of the month!!!  It is time to HOP ALONG on a Blog Hop with the Artisan Design Team!  Yay!  And this month is all about those florals!  We are using the Perennial Essence Suite of products!  We all had such a fun and unique take on things...I am sure you are going to love it all!  So let's get going!  If you just came from ANGELA'S BLOG...are you still swooning?!  😀  If so...or if you are just getting started...sure hope these projects make you swoon also:


I had so much fun with the Floral Essence Stamp Set (Item #149450) and the Perennial Flower Punch (Item #149522).  Also...not officially apart of the suite, but the Leaf Punch (Item #144667) coordinates also!

Check out these projects a little more up close.

This first standard size card makes my watercoloring soul squeal.  I love this technique!  You just stamp your images (make sure your ink pad is nice and juicy!) onto Watercolor Paper and then spritz with water.  Let the colors run a little and then dry with a heat tool.  Look how fun and artsy it looks!



Colors: Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green
Inks: Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers: Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Floral Essence
Tools: Stitched Rectangle Dies, Country Floral Embossing Folder, Heat Tool
Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine, Woven Threads Sequin Assortment, Granny Apple Green 1/2" Textured Weave Ribbon, Whisper White Embossing Powder

(And just saying...I love this color combo a whole lot.  Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green.)

I love how you can still see the detail of the flower, but you also get that fun watercolor vibe.




This pillow box would make such a fun little gift box for any birthday/wedding/thinking of you gift that you need to give!  The flowers are a breeze to make, thanks to some easy stamping and punching...



Colors: Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green
Inks: Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers: Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green
Stamps: Floral Essence
Tools: Perennial Flower Punch, Story Label Punch, Leaf Punch, Heat Tool
Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine, Very Vanilla 3/8" Scalloped Lace Trim, Gold Embossing Powder, Clear Embossing Powder, Perennial Essence Floral Centers, Kraft Pillow Boxes

I stamped and then embossed the images (flowers and leaves) with Clear Embossing Powder...but you don't need to do that step.  I just liked the glossy look it gave.  And I wanted that glossy gold sentiment...so I was already doing some embossing so why not just keep going?!  Hee.


And I LOVE that Scalloped Lace Trim that is wrapped around the whole box.  😍  It is so elegant and gorgeous!


Last up...a little 3"x3" note card!  These are such great notes to throw in a lunch, drop at a friends doorstep to brighten their day, attach to a gift...whatever you need!

Perennial Essence Floral Centers

I used the flower center stamp from the stamp set to make the fun textured polka dots in the background.  And those Perennial Essence Floral Centers (Item #149442) add so much fun texture!



I hope you enjoy these projects!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Keep on hopping along and see all the beauty that awaits you!!!  Aurélie's Blog is up next!  I can't wait for you to see what she created!
