Hexagon Hive meets Petite Petals!

I posted this photo for an inspiration challenge with our Maine Stampers Group on Facebook:


An inspiration challenge is when you look at a photo and create a project using anything in the photo that inspires you. There's lots to pick from in this photo. You could use the colors, the flowers, the butterflies , the stars or combine several to come up with a project.

So what do you get when you combine Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry and Perfect Plum? Why this card of course:


I actually used 4 different stamps sets for this card: The Best of Butterflies, Label Love, Petite Petals and Flower Shop. I doubled some of the flowers and I also doubled the butterfly:

 
I curled all of the petals and the top butterfly with my Bone Folder. The Hexagon Hive Die shape was embossed and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Card Supplies:
  • Stamp Sets: The Best of Butterflies, Label Love, Petite Petals and Flower Shop
  • Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Hexagon Hive Framelits Die, Artisan Label Punch, Pansy Punch, Petite Petals Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum, Whisper White 
EDITED: I've had a few requests asking to add the projects the girls from our Maine Demo's group created in this challenge:

 Eileen Frost

 Carrie Arsenault

 Jeannine Tarrio
