VC Rocks Blog Hop for May!

Hello Rockin' Friends!
If you have arrived here from Kelly's blog ....welcome! If you have just arrived... our very first VC blog hop begins at VC Rocks !
I love rubber stamping techniques... I love my copic markers... and I love VC Rocks yahoo group for all the summer stamping fun! It is a group of ladies who love to stamp, scrap, swap, do challenges, play games and above all make friends!
The theme for our first blog hop is to use Stampin' UP! retiring colors or summer mini stamp sets. I choose to use Brilliant Blue, Taken with Teal, Handsome Hunter and Mellow Moss to create a birthday card. I hope you enjoy it!

Directions:
1. Prepare a 1/4 sheet of Faux Designer Paper (Technique Junkie Newsletter Dec. 08) by embossing the large flourish from Baroque Motifs with clear embossing powder then apply mellow moss direct to paper. With hot iron and scrap paper, remove the embossing powder leaving a resist behind. Stamp additional images from Extreme Elements with taken with teal and handsome hunter. Trim 1/4 edge off.
2. Stamp flower image from Fifth Avenue floral seven times in clear embossing powder. Use a sponge to apply mellow moss, taken with teal and brilliant blue ink to each flower. Cut out. Embellish each flower center with dazzling diamonds glitter.
3. Layer faux designer paper section onto taken with teal and then a brilliant blue A2 size base.
4. Adhere cut flowers to the faux designer paper section, leaving upper right corner open for a greeting of your choice. Add oval clip and tie grograin ribbon to edge of greeting.


Your next visit on the blog hop is with the multi-talented Stace- Stampin Stace. Thanks for stamping by!
