Ranunculus Romance - OSAT Blooms Blog Hop

 Spring is just around the corner, and even though nothing is blooming yet here in Ohio (no lie, it is snowing as I type this!) - things are blooming all over my desk as I work on my spring cards. 

I am joining the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop today for their March Blooms Blog Hop.
All of the links to the other creative card makers will be at the bottom of my post.
I chose the Ranunculus Romance Bundle to make my Card and 3D project for my entry into the hop.
I love these flowers but hate their name!!  It is too hard to pronounce and spell!!  But I love all the tight layers of pedals on these beautiful flowers.

This card starts with a Basic Grey card base, a So Saffron mat layer and a background layer of a white washed wood DSP from the Heart & Home DSP pack.
I cut a rectangle of Basic Grey and then topped that with a torn piece of the Layering Designs Vellum.
I did all of my flower pieces by coloring right on the stamp with Stampin' Write Markers, this way I could easily get the stems green and the flowers in different colors.
I added a sprig of greenery from the die set using Pear Pizzaz and a bow with the Gray Granite Bakers Twine.  Although they don't show up real well in the photos I also popped on 3 clear gems from the Elegant Faceted Gems just to add a little sparkle.

For my 3D item - I made a little Post It Note cover and embellished it with the large Ranunculus Die cut flower.  The bottom layer of the flower was made using the Blending Brushes and a variety of yellow and Pale Papaya inks.
The measurements for this little folder are as follows:
Base - 8 1/2" x 3 1/4"  Scored at 2 1/2", 2 3/4", 5 3/4", 6"
DSP - 2 pieces  at 2 1/4" x 3" and 1 piece at 2 7/8" X 3"

Now, this was for the pack of Post It notes that I had - some are thicker so you will have to check the size of your pack to make sure this will work.

The Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon ties are tucked under the front DSP and the back DSP to tie and close the folder. 

I hope you enjoyed my card and cute note pad!
Please follow the links to see what everyone else has blooming!!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
