It's Blog-hoppin' time!!!

Some of us angels from Paper Wings are hoppin' again!  This time the theme is "anything but a card."  Now, you know I do lots of different crafts. Do you remember the cool flower I made at a class a while back? Well, I wanted to make one using TAC™ stamps and so I did.  Let me know what you think of this!



I used the Blossoms & Blessing stamp set on the black foam.  I also used a retired "Crackle" background stamp on the stem.  Then I lightly painted with Lumiere paints.



How do you like the flower?  I used Lime & Turquoise scrappers floss to embellish the button.  The bee is from the Give Praise to Him set and I made my own jump ring.


And how do you like my bow? I used Neutral Twill Ribbon and a Bow Easy.  That Bow Easy is one great help!! My bows are so much better looking than they used to be!

I'm hoping to make more of these for Christmas gifts.  I know a couple people who'd like these! They are relatively easy but a bit time consuming but I think well worth the effort.

Are you ready for more great projects?  Please leave a comment for me as to what you think (just click on the word "comment" right below the little pictures of 3 more projects you may like and a box will pop up - just follow the directions) then click on the name of the next angel.

Super you, Carol! Knowing a new technique and sharing a wonderfully interesting project is just like you.
You go, girl! That bee twinkling with some bling off the artzy plant is the hit of the parade.
Keep Looking UP!
