My Creative Time's May Release Blog Hop

Welcome to My Creative Time's May Release Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here from Cassandra's Blog.  If not you can start at the beginning of the hop here.

I am showcasing the "Here's Lookin at you" set.  I did something a little different with the ties.  When I was looking at a few extra pieces laying on my table I thought the ties looked like flower petals.  So here's my project for today, I hope you enjoy it!


I used the CAD Corner Chomper-Cloud on the corners to give it a "shaped" card effect.

  
I cut out 12 ties in assorted papers and punched a hole at the top of each one.  Then I took a brad and loaded them all on, spacing them evenly.  Then I put some foam tape on the back of each "petal" and placed the flower onto the card.  I secured the scallop to the middle with pop dots.


List of Supplies:
Here's Looking at You stamp set and Stitched Circle and Scallop dies  -  My Creative Time
Fine and Dandy Girl 6x6 pad  -  My Mind's Eye
Berry Sorbet and Vintage Cream Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Crop-a-Dial and Crop-a-Dial Corner Chomper, Cloud
Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Shabby shutters Distress Inks
Brad, Crystal Stickles
Foam Tape and Pop Dots

Here's Lookin' At You
This release IS available HERE & is now shipping! The release is on sale until, FRIDAY, MAY 18th @ midnight PST!
