Simple Stories / Petaloo Blog Hop

Standard

Well hey there Peeps. Such a fun day for me to be sharing  the projects I created as guest designer  for May. I made these  specially for the Simple Stories / Petaloo Blog Hop.   When I say I love the papers and flower selection I mean I REALLY REALLY LOVE IT!!!  We have had the most brutal seeming to never end winter here in Michigan….in fact it was snowing last week. Today is 87 and my heart is singing!!! These Simple Stories Lines are just too perfect for this time of year with their bright cheery colors and fun whimsical patterns. And the Petaloo flowers are the perfect finishing touch to my projects.

First Project…Sunshine & Happiness Card:

Sunshine and HAppiness Card Petaloo Simple Stories 1

This card was soo much fun to create. It really did bring me sunshine and happiness.

I selected a variety of the Petaloo flowers to coordinate with the paper patterns.

Layering the chipboard stickers allowed me to add quite a few in such a small space. Adding spacers is the key to keeping everything level.  Have to save room for flowers! A simple not too poofy bow in a coordinating raspberry help to anchor the top corner along with the die cut frame.

While I had the Sunshine & Happiness Collection out I created a tag also….

Yummy Ice Cream Tag Petaloo Simple Stories 1

I used similar layering techniques for this tag but instead of using the chipboard I went with the regular stickers and combined the with the cut apart pages, more diecuts, and of course gorgeous Petaloo flowers.

Two smaller arrangements work well for this size tag.  I’ve also added a more subtly patterned ribbon.

Incorporating a pretty die cut doily in clean crisp white helps to separate some of the busy patterns. Adding spacers between the layers adds depth and give me th opportunity to tuck in some of the blooms.
