Introducing Canterbury Bells

This month’s Build-a-Flower is a lovely multi-bloom stem with some additional background blooms and super mini sentiment strips.

Stamp, Stencil & Blend

My first project is pretty straightforward. I Inked up the BAF Canterbury Bells using Shades of Purple, then I stamped some of the smaller background flowers and diecut them all out. I prepped a few sentiment strips on Pale Gray cardstock. I stenciled some of the Wavy Grid stencil in Volcano Lake and then blended out in Lagoon to the edges of the card base. Then, I just had to adhere all of the diecut pieces.

All the Canterbury Bells

Today, I thought I’d show you three additional color combos to create a glorious garden of your own!

A Galaxy in a Flower

For my second card, I wanted to have some fun with the Artist Marker refills I just got. I wanted to play around with some Yupo paper and the ink to create a really cool background. And, I did! Then, I decided that it would look even cooler if I diecut the flower shape from the Yupo and add it to a simple background of Navy cardstock with Antique Gold splatter.
