Words of Gratitude MAY Release


I wanted to do something different with this set WORDS OF GRATITUDE from Clear Dollar Stamps LLC: http://www.newcleardollarstamps.com/servlet/StoreFront

So I masked off the words with masking tape and stamped one word at a time to the 3/4" circle centers. I love how these glass circles look.

I used the Stampin Up Scallop punch for the flowers. Cutting with scissors from the outter edge to the center (after adhering the center circle). Then I sponged each petal pulling up its neighbors as I went, this gives the flower its round form. The inspiration for these cute flowers came from the last Stampin Workshop I attended. Thanks Judy!

I sanded all edges with a nail file, then sponged and stitched. May you be inspired to make your own. Thanks for visiting. Come again.
