Paper Florist Dies for the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop-August 2023

Hello fellow stampers! You are visiting with Theresa McEntee-author of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop today. There are several of us- you will find the list to follow the hop at the end of my blog post.

The Ink & Inspiration Challenge is both an image and a color challenge. I was inspired by the image because I had been wanting to use the Paper Florist Dies. These dies do not have a corresponding stamp set but they are loads of fun on their own!

The colors were also very inspirational. I love flowers. The combination of colors for this challenge brought to mind several different types of flowers I am fond of. Tiger Lillies and roses are two of them.

My goal was to make the flowers as real as possible. I tried several ways to color the flowers after diecutting them. I used Blending Brushes, Sponge Daubers and Stampin’ Write Markers. You may enjoy trying to make flowers you like!

The inside of the card needed a pretty flower. The Artistically Inked stamp set had a rose that I liked. I stamped it in Flirty Flamingo Ink. The leaves are stamped in Granny Apple Green Ink and Garden Green Ink. (I may have overdone the leaves! Lol!)

I found that making the flowers was very relaxing. It really did not take long to diecut the pieces. I hope you give the Paper Florist Dies a go!

Hello, my name is Theresa. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband of 30 years. I am a retired Family Physician. I love having time now to create and craft, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator more than 5 years and am having a blast! Not only do I get to craft, I meet new friends from all over the world! Crafting gives me something positive to do and to share with others. I love to have my monthly Zoom Card Making Classes so others can craft with me. I have so much fun creating the cards for others to make! My blog was initially geared toward the beginner stamper in order to help others get started stamping on their own at home. If you need information to get started, look for my first blogs. My more recent posts have been cards and projects for Blog Hops and challenges. Stop by to see my projects and those of folks from around the world! Add more creativity to your life today!

  1. How fun! Did you ink the impression folder before putting the paper in? Or smudge it after?

  2. Very pretty. I appreciate the comment & reply about adding the color to emboss folder, after it is embossed .
