Cricut Flower Market Blog Hop

The Stamp of the Month Consultants are sharing their creative ideas using the Close To My Heart Flower Market Cricut cartridge. This cartridge is SO versatile and has so much more than just flowers. So let's get into it!

If you're coming from the blog of Sheila Bennett you're doing fine. It's one big circle and you can hop on and off at any point. There is also a link at the end of this post to a list of all the participating consultants.

I decided to go with a technique called the Split Negative. It's really quite easy and looks impressive when done. To get things started I cut snowflakes from page 21 of the Flower Market booklet. You have to cut a full snowflake of each paper so you end up being able to make two cards! Once the snowflakes were cut I lined them up on my Paper Trimmer to cut them in half. Then you make layers alternating the colors so they are opposite. HINT: it is easier to glue with Liquid Glass when layering to get other papers to stick to the glitter paper. I added a few sparkles and stamped the sentiments both inside and out.

If you don't have the Flower Market cartridge yet it would be a fantastic idea for a Christmas or Holiday gift! It would also make the paper crafter on your gift list very, very happy!

    1. Thanks, Sheila! It brought back A LOT of memories!

  4. I love the colors you used! The Sea Glass glitter paper really pops against the Peacock. I didn't have time to participate in this blog hop but I'm really glad that I stopped by your blog today. Thanks for inspiring me today!
