Welcome to the Crafty Cupcakes Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop for September 2017. Each month members of the Team take part in our Team Blog Hop to share with you our cards and projects made using the fabulous Stampin' Up! products. You are currently visiting Lea Denton, The Crafty Spark and below you will see the full list of everyone taking part. To move to the next blog just click the name after mine in the list. This month our theme is Inspired By Nature and for me that's flowers. Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Falling Flowers Stamp Set


Ok so you may be thinking 'doesn't that card say Mother's Day???' well yes and I know it's not Mothers Day but I made this card earlier this year and just haven't had a chance to share it with you yet. So as our theme today is Inspired By Nature it seemed the perfect time to show it to you!

Colouring and I have never really been best friends but I saw a card by Jennifer McGuire on Pinterest where she used watercolour paper and gold embossing and loved the effect so thought I'd give it a try. I'm really pleased with how it turned out... I know some of my blending needs a bit of attention but over all I'm rather chuffed with myself :D

Being a special card for my Mother-In-Law I did some subtle stamping inside the card too as well as on the envelope. It's not showing very well in the photo but it's definitely there!

Thank you once again for visiting my blog and taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss so make sure you carry on hopping through the list. Remember that currently you are at my blog, Lea Denton, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next.

YOU will receive a little something lovely through the post at the beginning of the following month but ONLY if you've used the Hostess Code.  If your order is over £150 please don't use the code to make sure all the Stampin’ Rewards come directly to you (only individual orders in excess of £150 qualify for Stampin’ Rewards).
