Happy Holiday Hop! Becky and Melanie thought it would be great fun to team up for a little Holiday Hop today. Today we are showcasing Becky's new set, "Warm Woolen Mittens" along with Becky's new cut file "Grand Banners" and "Grand Banners - Winter Sentiments" and Melanie's newest set, "Lots of Letters" as well as some of her other recent favorites. Joining us are some dynamic designers that will knock your socks off with their beautiful work today! Make sure you visit everyone's blog to leave a comment and be entered to win a clear "I do!" and "Beyond Baskets" stamp set! A winner will be announced Thursday. Now on to today's projects!
One of my all time favorite flowers is the sunflower. I'm not sure why, but it could be due to the warm rich colors, and it just seems so happy. And, it's big!! :) So when I saw Melanie's sunflower from her Stately Flowers 5 set, I fell in love!! It's stunning, and the leaves are gorgeous.
I colored mine with Prisma color pencils and double layered the flower for dimension. I also stamped the "sunflower" sentiment directly onto the dp I used: Genuine (Authentique). Everything else (including the popped up butterfly) is from the dp.
I also added some Topaz Treasure Beads from Art Accentz (Provo Craft) to the flower center. I think they're super fun!
Here's a list of those hopping in case you might have missed a stop along the way.
