Hand Stamped Sentiments- HSSCC #183

Hello to all my blogging friends I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

 I was looking for a Spring Floral Arrangement to put on my kitchen table this week. With that thought in mind I went outside yesterday. No flowers in my yard yet Boo! But I had cut some old broken tree branches from the yard and decided to make a wooden basket from them. With no flowers on hand but a super cute basket waiting to be filled what else dose a crafter do but, MAKE MY OWN FLOWERS right !!

I came across a great Color Challenge that had all the spring colors I was looking for to do the job.

 Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #183 said I could do a 3-D Project so I went for it.
I had super fun today and here is what I came up with.

This floral arrangement took me all day to make but, in real life it is very pretty and looks great on my kitchen table!

I added  several different flower shapes and stamped them in Coastal Cabana, Whisper White and Crushed Curry. I used Whisper White, Crushed Curry and Coastal Cabana solid colored Card stock as well

 I then added a few accent flowers in Wisteria Wonder and Calypso Coral  to break up the two tones a bit. I also used Creped Filter Paper to make the Calypso Coral Carnations. All the leaves were either hand cut, punched and or die cut. I used the Secret Garden Stamp Set and the Secret Garden Framelits as well as the Bird Builder Punch for some of the leaves and the flowers. For the little center flower I used the  flower from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. Those little flowers were punched out in Basic Black, Crushed Curry and Whisper White card stock. I hand made the bow using 5/8" Organza Ribbon. To stand the flowers and leaves up I dyed a bunch of Bambo Skewers in Gumball Green Reinker and a Stampin Spot. The wood basket was made Log Cabin style and tied together with green floral wire. I used a piece of floral Styrofoam to stick the flowers in. I also made a little Gumball Green Box that fit inside of the wooden basket so that you would not see the Styrofoam.

The completed project is 12" Tall and 12" Wide by 7" deep

I hope you like my Spring Floral Arrangement 3-D Project and get inspired to create something fun today. The Hand Stamped Sentiment Color Challenge is for cards too. So go on over to their blog and give this challenge a try. I know I would love to see what you come up with also.
Thanks for stopping by today.
