WT58 - Flower Power
 
I just love all the floral embellishments that seem to be all the rage... so this week, bring out all your pretty posies and have some fun! The challenge is to find ways to use floral embellishments such as Primas and "silk" flowers on your cards and make the gallery look bloomin' wonderful! Stamp lots of flowers too, but make sure you have an actual flower as well. If you don't have any, the dollar store is a great place to find some "silk" daisies.

Please remember to put WT58 in your keyword section and post a link back here. This is not a contest, a race and does not have a time limit. Make as many items as you wish for as long as you wish. Combine this with other challenges too if you want to. You can even link this with your VSN cards as well, so have fun.

Here is my card... (may still be pending)
Daisy Thank You
Happy Stamping,

I can't believe it. I've never been here even on the 1st page LOL~

imastampin 04-27-2006 05:36 AM

Looks fun, but I don't think I have any silk flowers around. Gotta look.

jsbrooketrout 04-27-2006 05:37 AM

Great challenge!! I think I can do this! No primas (high on my must get list) but I can come up with something!

katieg 04-27-2006 05:39 AM

Flowers, hmmm...gotta check my stash!

dawnmercedes 04-27-2006 05:40 AM

Ooooh...good thing I have to go grocery shopping today...it's easy to slip in "supplies" from the craft isle with out DH knowing!! Hope they have something "bloomin'!"

Jeanne S 04-27-2006 05:41 AM

Darn, I have to use Primas.........LOL :)

lacyquilter 04-27-2006 05:42 AM

Coooool! I just bought a bunch (way too many) of primas. Before I decided to spend the money, I just picked up a couple of floral sprays from Wally's, Mike's or LCS for $1 or less & pulled them apart. Some have at least 80 flowers on them.

dawnmercedes 04-27-2006 05:42 AM

That just means you can replenish your stock!

dawnmercedes 04-27-2006 05:42 AM

posted to the wrong thread...sorry

Gladd-lyStamping 04-27-2006 05:44 AM

How FUN! I only have silk poinsettias in my craft room, so I need to do some shopping....

nmslmomto3 04-27-2006 05:49 AM

I got some cute flowers at Rite Aid in the dollar section the other day, they have a bit of fluff inside of them and are bright colors, thought they would work for cards..good to know I can use them. Also got some ribbon, and silk roses in that section too, all kinds of scrapbook stuff there.

stampwithdee 04-27-2006 05:50 AM

Hmm. Eyeing this vase of "faux" forsythias - wonder if I could pop a few off with no one noticing? Hmm.

Sure you could, just take them from the back, no one will notice, and if they do, tell them Paco thought they were a taco and ate them..lol!

Ditto!

rhondag 04-27-2006 06:40 AM

Oh No! Flowers j/k.

I just took the line off my signature that said "make me stop using primas on everything I make". Not much of a challenge for me, but soooo fun! Thanks!

kayjay 04-27-2006 06:42 AM

Timing is everything! I just got my first bottle of primas. Can't wait to play later today. Thanks for the challenge.

pammyrn 04-27-2006 06:56 AM

Woo Hoo, I just love using floweres as my embellishments. Can't wait to get started. I have so many in my gallery, but I will just start from scratch. Thank you so very much Julia for this challenge. I love it.

kellymartin 04-27-2006 06:57 AM

Bummer, no primas here, YET...my friend just sent some in the mail to me yesterday...can't wait! But, I do have a Hawaiian Lei in my daughter's room, wonder if she'd notice ;)

Barbra1224 04-27-2006 07:10 AM

ooo I have a bottle of Primas! Will work on later! Thanks Julia!

imastampin 04-27-2006 07:17 AM

I got one done, then thought it needed more, so added the floral bg. I like it better with that.
