Every Little Bit "May" Directions

Happy Wednesday and welcome to May! In case you're just started checking out my blog, I made this project for the Royal Blog Tour. I will feature a different month each Wednesday. Last week's April showers definitely brought May flowers!

I used the following Stampin' Up items to make May's picture:

Every Little Bit and Full Calendar Stamp Sets
Pretty In Pink, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard,
Tempting Turquoise, Perfect Plum, and Basic Black Classic Inks
Black Stazon Ink
Naturals Ivory, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, and Basic Black Card Stock
1/8" Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon
Paper Snips
Modern Label Extra Large Punch
Magnetic Movers and Shapers Punch Windows Set of 4
Big Shot
Blender Pens
2 Way Glue Pen


1. Cut Crumb Cake card stock to 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" for the background.
2. Stamp "May" on Naturals Ivory card stock.
3. Punch it out with the Modern Label Extra Large Punch.
4. Punch out a Modern Label from the Magnetic Movers and Shapers Punch Windows.
5. Adhere the two Modern Lables to the background.
6. Stamp five flowers with Black Stazon Ink on Very Vanilla card stock.
7. Use a blender pen to color the flowers with the different inks listed above. Some of them have a lighter color and some have a darker color in the same family. Use those when possible. If there is only one color, apply a light color to the flower. Layer the color to make it darker until you get the shade in the center you would like.
8. Cut out the flowers with Paper Snips scissors.
9. Cut a small piece of Old Olive card stock to 2 3/4" x a little under 1/2".
10. Cut small strips into the card stock to make grass. Be careful not to cut all the way through.
11. Use your finger to bend part of the grass up. This will add texture and show off the grass better.
12. Cut 5 pieces of 1/8" Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon for the flower stems in different lengths.
13. Adhere them to the Crumb Cake card stock with a 2-Way Glue Pen.
14. Adhere the grass over the flower stems.
15. Arrange and adhere the flowers in heights that are appealing to you. They don't have to go right on the top of the ribbon.

I think that's everything!
Happy May Flowers in December and Happy Stamping!
