Rose Blossom Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the Seasonal Expressions 1 Rose Blossom Blog Hop!

Thank you for stopping by! You may have hopped from the
Rose Blossom Legacies and the blog from our amazing talented leader, Brenda Rose
or you may be starting here.
Just follow the links for some awesome creative inspiration!
Enjoy all the creativity from our brand new Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog! 

I really, really love the Chelsea Gardens paper and stamps! I fell in love with them the second I saw them! These papers are getting me excited for Spring!
I wanted to create a pretty layered card using this paper and that gorgeous
butterfly from the Chelsea Garden - Cardmaking stamp set. I used the Basic Circles thin
cuts to create a circle frame. I placed the large circle thin cut on top of a piece of charcoal cardstock and placed the medium circle inside of the large circle and then ran it through my Cuttlebug. This creates an opening in the center. The butterfly was stamped with the Black Archival stamp pad and colored with the watercolor pencils blending the color using the clear shimmer brush. The shimmer brush adds so much shimmer and sparkle to any project! This is one of my favorite products! 
I added a few Chelsea Gardens Dots and Gems. I totally love these!
This card was inspired by the new "Make it from Your Heart" Volume 4 card pattern book. You're going to love this new book filled with fun patterns for creating a variety of beautiful cards!


 Now hop on over to Shelly's blog to see her amazing artwork!

Enjoy! :) 

Happy Creating!

I hope you enjoy the instructions on how to make the folded treat holder!
Here you go:

Cut your B&T paper 6x6.


Fold the paper corner to corner.

Fold the top of the paper to the bottom.

Take each corner and fold in. Making sure you use your bone folder for this step.
Glue down each side with strong adhesive. 

Now take the top (black paper) and glue
down over the front of the holder.
