OSAT Blog Hop: May Flowers

Hey, hey! It's One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop time and that means we have a lot of fantastic creations in store for you today! This month we have 15 talented artists who have each designed both a card and project for this month's May Flowers themed hop. You may be starting the hop here at my blog or you may have come from Melissa Davies blog (isn't she fantastic?!). Either way I hope you'll continue the whole hop and see everyone's creations. Just click the next button at the bottom of my post!

For my CARD I used the Helping Me Grow stamp set along with the Timeless Textures set. Helping Me Grow is my favorite flower set right now and I find it so easy to use as every single flower in this set is lovely. First I made the card with the So Saffron flower. Then I thought how pretty this card would be in different colors and gifted as a set so I made the same card in Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, and, Wisteria Wonder. 

Here it is in So Saffron...

...and Soft Sky...

...and Pink Pirouette...

...and Wisteria Wonder.

For my PROJECT I decided to make a gift box to put my cards in. I used the same design for the front of the boxes (I made two sets to give away) but added some twine and a tag I made using the Lots of Labels Framelits.

Here's a close up of the tag I made. I love how it came out! I grunged it up a bit with two different stamps from the Timeless Textures set. The sentiment is pieced together from two stamps from Helping Me Grow. I really love the fonts in this stamp set.

Here's one last shot of my gift box with the cards in the background. I did stamp flowers on all of my envelopes too. They look rustic and lovely. 

I hope you liked my cards and project for today because I sure had fun making them! For more fantastic May Flower projects please keep on hopping with us. Next up is the talented Anna Smith!
