Joy of sets May Blog Hop - Floral

Joy of Sets blog hop Stampin Up

Hi there everyone,
I hope you are all doing well. Welcome to the monthly Joy of Sets Blog Hop for May. You have hopefully just arrived from JoAnn Pollock and you are currently visiting me, Jill Chapman, aka Paper Daisy Crafting, a demo from the UK. Thank you so much for dropping by. I really hope you are enjoying hopping! This month's theme is "Floral and there could not be a more perfect theme for me. Looking at all the stamp sets on my shelves I would say that well over 50% are florals. So I was spoilt for choice when it came to this month's blog hop. In the end I pulled out a set I haven't used nearly enough - Floral Essence. Here is my card:

Floral Essence Stampin Up.

I am not sure what flowers those are supposed to be but they really remind me of anemones, especially when the black centre is added.

Just recently I have been trying very hard to decorate a matching envelope for all my cards and this one was no exception - just a little bit of stamping in the corner makes it all the more special.

The sentiment I used was from Butterfly Gala. I seem to be sending out so many cards just to say "hi" and "how are you?" at the moment so this sentiment is perfect. And of course I did a little stamping inside too.

When making this card I actually stamped a whole A5 sheet so I had lots left over to make other cards - sort of a Half Sheet Wonder! I'll show you the other cards I made another day.

Meanwhile do keep hopping around the other blogs - there are some amazing projects to see. The amazing Gez Carpenter is next - just CLICK HERE or on the NEXT button below.
