June My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop

 Welcome to my stop along the June My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop!

Hopefully you arrived here from Edna's blog. If you just happened upon the hop be sure to head to the My Pink Stamper blog so you can start from the beginning and see all of the team's amazing work. If you have been following along the whole time, Heather, our guest hopper is next!

This month  we were challenged to use any of Robyn's amazing stamps, bright colors and the Summer season as inspiration. One of my favorite things about Summer is all the vintage fun that can be found at garage sales, flea markets and thrift stores. This vintage vibe put me in the mood to make a fifties inspired garden party dress on a dress form whose outfit was long in need of an update.

The My Pink Stamper stamps are versatile and perfect for card making, scrapbooking or home decor projects like this one. The "butterfly" sentiment on this project is from a Christmas set! (Winter Punnies)  Robyn's choice of beautiful fonts and her super smart selection of sentiments means any one of her stamp sets is perfect for a variety of creations and that together they are quite the tool kit for expressing yourself in a wide array of projects.  Window shop the entire My Pink Stamper product line here and be sure to buy a few  here.

The bulk of the dress is made up of over 350 individual tulip cuts from the Bloom Cricut Lite cartridge. They were adhered to a cardstock base I designed myself and then hand embellished with stickles. The "rusched" one sleeve strap is the same tulip cut sprayed with water and then "pinched." Once the paper dries it hardens and maintains its shape. As a chef would say, I served tulip "two ways."

A list of all the Pinkalicious blogs involved is below, as well as my supply list and cut information.


Thanks for stopping by,
CarrieAnne
