Happy Thursday, peeps! Did y'all have fun taking our Diva Inspiration Blog Hop? I know I got so inspired by all the projects. If you haven't had a chance to hop around yet, you've still got until Saturday 2/5 to leave your comments. Click here for my post, which also has the master hop list at the bottom.
When I was making my Mojo Monday 176 card earlier this week, I had another idea for just masking off the curve for a simpler one layer version and had to give it a go. Of course I didn't stick to just one layer, but the concept itself is pretty clean and simple-ish. This time I went with a square card and pulled out Dream Big. I hand drew a curve, then cut out and lay down as a mask before stamping the greenery in Pear Pizazz and Wild Wasabi. Then I pulled off the mask, stamped the large stem and the sentiment, then added a little Melon Mambo pompom trim to accent my curve. Sorry for the poor photo - pinks and greens are always so hard to photograph.
I stamped the flower in Melon Mambo, then cut out and layered over the card, adding a button for the center and some pink liquid pearls to each petal. The little flags are made with the fun Sentiment Flags die by Lil' Inker Designs. I had some washi tape on my desk that matched the project, so I layered it onto white cardstock, then cut with the flag die and trimmed to different lengths, adding some 1/2 circles and some pear seam binding ribbon to accent. My finished card size is 5" square.

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
