MMH Countdown to Creativity

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of our Countdown to Creativity, leading up to Monday's launch of the March My Monthly Hero kit! Today Jayne is sharing a couple notecards she created with some of the stamps in the kit. Here's Jayne:

Today I'm sharing a pair of square notecards that I made using two beautiful floral images included in this month's stamp set.  I've used a small selection of my ordinary colored pencils to color two of the largest sunflower image and two of the smaller daisy image. After coloring each flower blossom, I fussy-cut the images, however, this month's set includes matching dies that will make cutting these flowers a breeze.

I layered the smaller flowers over the larger blossoms with foam tape for extra dimension. Then, I cut squares of black layering paper, die cut circles in the centers, and heat embossed the "hello" sentiment from [hero_product_link sku="CL946"] with [hero_product_link sku="PW110" text="white embossing powder"] in the lower right corners. To provide extra support behind the flowers, I added clear acetate to the backs of the squares. After adhering a flower across each circle, I layered the finished squares over cards that I made from [hero_product_link sku="PS621" text="Sunshine Layering Papers"] and [hero_product_link sku="PS619" text="Floral Mix Layering Papers"].

I finished each card with a trio of sparkly gems and a pretty twine bow.

Thanks Jayne! We love your sweet little notecards!
