VC Rocks ABC Blog Hop with Daisies

Hello and welcome to the July VC Rocks Blog Hop!
On this hop, you'll be seeing projects that are Anything But a Card!

You can begin the tour by going to www.vcrocks.blogspot.com or just go to www.stampingfunwithkim.blogspot.com to see the previous blog in the hop.




For this tour, I wanted to break out my Stampin' Up Big Shot Daisies #2 Flower Bigz Die. I had seen a lot of great projects made with it so I wanted to make some of my own.

I made my first flower as a plant stake to stick in one of my plants in my living room. Stampin' Up's Cherry Cobbler Card Stock matches one of the colors in my couch. I love how it turned out!


After making one flower, I had to make another one! This time I used Real Red and Cherry Cobbler to match some of the accents in my kitchen. I like the variation in color and depth that it added. This is a magnet on my refrigerator.



Finally, I thought my amazing new Stampin' Up catalog deserved an accessory of it's own. So, I created one more flower as a bookmark for my new catalog. I used the Real Red and Cherry Cobbler combination again which matched the cover of the catalog nicely.

I hope you've enjoyed my stop on the blog hop. Although there's no stamping, Stampin' Up provides products that can be used for a wide variety of projects- not just cards!

Happy Creating!


I used the following Stampin' Up products to make these projects:

Real Red and Cherry Cobbler Card Stock
Bigz Daisies Flower #2 Die
Big Shot
Hemp Twine
Regals Buttons
Antique Brads

This is exactly what I needed to do for one of my roomie gifts. I just don't have that die. I think you and Frank should come to MO and play with me. Beautiful job.

Karen said...

That is one gorgeous flower! Since red is my favorite color, I simply must make myself one. I really like the suggestion of using Cherry Cobbler and Real Red together. It definitely gives it definition and depth.
