SSI Flowers Blog Hop

Welcome to SSI Flower's Blog Hop!  Hopefully we are starting to thaw out a bit after such a bitter cold winter.  One of the best signs of spring is the flowers and as much as I love my winter decorations, I am eager to pull out all of my floral decorations!  We are featuring all things floral in our monthly blog hop today!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 1 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Jennifer Campbell - Happy 2 Scrap 4 Life. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

I have several flowers projects to share with you today.  The first is a group of mini cards I made using a fun new technique of embossing with white and then coloring with the blendabilities.  So fun and so easy!

Here is a close up of my favorite one.

I also have a relatively quick and easy birthday card I made using the Crazy About You bundle along with a great floral embossing folder!

The February Paper Pumpkin had awesome accordion style card that I thought was begging to show off our great floral stamp sets.  Here I used the Flower Patch set with our fabulous in colors!   

Here are a few close ups of each section:

And here is the little pouch!

Finally here is a little sampler layout.  I have an easel display in my family room and I love creating something special for each season!  

I had a lot of fun making this.  I just love these In Colors and it gave me a great excuse to use the In Color Accessory Pack, one of the additional free items offered for this final month of Sale-A-Bration.  I used the Lost Lagoon buttons in the center of the Lost Lagoon flowers.  I also wrapped some of the Tangelo Twist twine for the center of the Hello Honey flowers.
