Things have been busy around the Ulrich household. Unfortunately my Cricut is still MIA... Let's NOT talk about that... LOL... So in the meantime I am making due with the help of some dear friends and a massive collection of stamps!
This is the second post for me today. Today is the first chance I have had to work on the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. So at the risk of boring you to death today, I am posting something else. Here's the sketch...
And here's my attempt...
I used coordinating papers from the Be Amazing Collection by My Mind's Eye. The stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs may be found in the Not Forgotten set. The flower is a happy creation I came upon while reading another blog, Clare's Creations. Clare Buswell has this fabulous tutorial on how to make paper carnations. Unfortunately, I do not own the Sizzix die she referred to in the video but I improvised! I pulled out a 5 petal paper punch by Stampin' Up and went to work. I followed her instructions to the letter with the exception of the paper punch. I really like how it turned out! Be sure to check out the link to her blog above for the details! Thanks for stopping by! Blessings...
