For the Love of Flower Stamps!

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop. If you got here from Kathy's Blog, you are in the right place!   The Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop for the For the Love of ODBD Flower Stamps! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, go to the ODBD blog for the full link list.  One  post is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate.  So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love!  You have until Wednesday, May 9th at 6 pm EDT to complete the hop.   So, why not get hopping and enjoy all the fabulous inspiration using The Love of ODBD Flower Stamps!  

I used Don't Worry for my flower image. 





 Here is my creation:

In-my-prayers-FSAT

I used the Chicory flower from the Don't Worry Set, the 2 Step Butterfly, and Flourished Verses.  The base is Martha Stewart, the designer paper is BoBunny Country Gardens, and the butterfly is also stamped on Vellum and cut with the Grunge Butterfly Die that matches the butterfly.   I used Versafine for my ink, and the dies are from Cheery Lynn: Italian Flourish and Square Doily.  I added some Baby Blue Flower Soft for the stamens, and the bow is May Arts Sheer 1" ribbon, which I made on my new Becca's Peg Bow maker.  The sketch I used is from this week's i{heart}2stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  From here you will hop to the sweet and talented Jan Keen!
