All things FLORAL is what you will see during this month's Kre8tors Blog Hop!  Many of us have been busy creating projects for our friends and loved ones during this "new normal" for so many of us as we are all in #stayhome #stayhealthy modes so I am sure you will get your creativity boosted from this talented bunch of Kre8tors.  Relax and enjoy a cuppa while you gather some inspiration as you peruse along the hop!

Happy Mother's Day, y'all!  For all of the mothers here in the US, I hope that you are enjoying this special day dedicated to you as much as possible.  Today's cards are for all of mothers out there where whether you are a true blood, motherlike, or a heart mom like me.  I hope you enjoy your virtual flowers today!

Inspiration is everywhere...  this time last year while shopping for something for summer, I ran across a lightweight, cotton eyelet top that I just had to have.  I'm sure you have had similar situations.  Well, today that clothing must have is an inspiration for this project filled with stamping must haves.

The Ornate Garden Suite is an amazing Early Release product from the new upcoming Annual Catalog that is currently available to customers.  The Ornate Labels Dies were the first things I knew I had to have other than the lovely floral images which are perfect for coloring in all sorts of colors and mediums.  The details in the above die cut are the perfect compliment to the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder (RETIRING!) which was used to emboss a piece of Vellum cardstock which was used as an overlay for a Whisper White layer.  

The large floral image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut prior to coloring.  Why not color and then fussy cut you might ask?  Part of the design process for me... I needed to visually see the images to determine the color palette vs placing the stamp upside down to get the same effect.  Part of choosing the color palette is determining the cardbase color...  I chose to let the daisy center be the cardbase color.  And then got busy coloring.  I enjoyed the process so much, that I started off with a Bright color palette to compliment the Daffodil Delight daisy centers... unfortunately the nature lover in me was not too fond of the lovely Granny Apple Green foliage that I had colored... and the Flirty Flamingo pom poms were not making me happy... and the Highland Heather violets were not just right.

Thankfully, I was using Blends Markers, so it was easy to blend some additional layers of color with the existing colors that my heart I was yearning to change.  Nothing like trying to attempt something new but not likely the colors, right?!?  I was relieved as I watched the Blends work their magic when  Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade helped create the salmon pom poms, while Old Olive deepened the foliage and Seaside Spray created the violet blue that made my heart swoon.    

The Dressed to Impress sentiment was heat embossed on a scrap of Daffodil Delight and die cut with a coordinating die.  A Whisper White Baker's Twine bow added to the lightness of the card layers.  The wrapped layers were adhered to a Daffodil Delight layer that was double embossed with the Subtle embossing folder creating the feel of linen.

A monochromatic color wave was simple to create after creating this colorful version.  The monochromatic version uses Night of Navy...  the Night of Navy and Seaside Spray Blends Combo Markers worked beautifully together for a Delft Blue image.

Keeping the same layout, changing up the colors, the sentiment and the ribbon makes it a completely different card!  Making the layers was such a simple thing to do the second time... so if you love to fussy cut and color, this layout will be so fun to mass produce for any occasion!
