Hello Friends! A few weeks ago my friend, Jeanne Streif, contacted me and asked me to join the Paper and More.com design team! Of course, I said yes because who doesn't love cardstock? So today I have a fun project to share with you using Paper and More's cardstock.
This project was the result of a personal challenge of mine. I challenged myself to get back to basics and create a project using only cardstock, ink, stamps and dies! No patterned paper for me on this project! It's been a long time since I have done a project like this. Here is what I came up with!
Using Natural White Cotton Paper 80#, I created the flowers. I really love the weight and composition of this cardstock. I stamped the flower images and die cut them. Once they were die cut, I spritzed them with water and shaped them. Once they were dry, the flower petals held there shape and look fabulous! (even if I did make them myself!). At the end of this post, there is a list of supplies I used with affiliate links to the supplies.
Here is a video showing you how I created this project! Enjoy!

- Ink - Old Paper Distress Ink (Ranger); Olive Grove Memento Luxe ink (Tsukineko); Crumb Cake ink pad (Stampin' Up!)
