No Rectangles Allowed! PaperBlooms shaped card challenge

  • I am so excited! This is my official debut as a member of the PaperBlooms design team! Yeah! Joing the design team along with me are Shelly and Rose. And of course bringing us all together is Leah. Leah is the very talented lady who creats all these beautiful handmade paperblooms crocheted embellies! They are so amazing, check out Leah's Esty shop! You will be happy you did! On to today's business:

    Today's PaperBlooms Challenge is to make a shaped card. No Rectangles Allowed. Sounds fun, right? I could not wait to get started on it. And, as per the norm, the card did not turn out like I first thought in my head. That is okay, if I think too much, they tend to get ruined. ok, to get back on track ... My shape for this card is the large scalloped octagon nestability. Dont worry, if you dont have nestabilites, there are plenty of other ways to make a non-rectangle card. Be inventive!

  • Stamps: Beautiful Butterflies (clear dollar stamps)
  • Paper: Pretty in Pink, Lovely Lilac
  • Ink: Stazon Jet Black
  • Tools: Large Scalloped Octagon Nestabilities, d'vine swirls embossing folder
  • Accessories: Handmade Butterflies from Leah's Esty Shop, dew drops

    Remember, you dont have to have any of Leah's amazing blooms to play along, but if you want, you can check out what she has to offer HERE. She even takes custom orders! I cant wait to see what you all come up with!
