TCP Tuesday update!

It's Tuesday and that means it's time for me to give you more inspiration to play along with us, on our TCP Tuesday Challenge. This month, we are challenging you to get "Flowertastic!"

This month it's all about flowers. If April Showers bring May Flowers, after the storm we had in my neck of the woods, May should be, indeed, flowerful. But, impatient gal, that I am, I want to see those flowers, NOW. So, your challenge, if you decide to accept it, is to use flowers  as the main focal point of your card.

Last week, I showed you how to use the Lacy Floral Doily Die paired it with our Window CutUps, used the Petal Roller to make a fast flowerbox card.

This week, I'm using our Flower Button CutUps and our Simply Said Stamp Set to make this card. And, because our Flower Button CutUps cuts multiple flowers in one pass, this card was just as easy. I used the Petal Roller to sculpt each petal to give more of a dimensional look. And, the Doily from last week's card using the Lacy Floral Doily Die.

Take a gander at Nancy Thomas' sweet card. She used several of our CutUps, but the star of the show are those flowers from the Pinwheel CutUps. Notice that pretty vine entwined with the flowers? That's the Heart Swirl! So CLEVER!

How about this pretty and feminine card by Noelle McAdams? She stamped out the bunny and sentiment from our Bloom set and used the Lacy Floral Doily CutUps and the Sunflower Rosette as her embellishment.

And, last but not least, Wendy McGaffey's elegant floral card is just pretty in purple using our Words of Love set, and Flower Button CutUps. And that background? It's our Heart and Lock Background

All of these cards are AMAZING! And, if you hop on over to their blogs, you'll see what I mean.

Now, break out your Cat's Pajamas Stamps and CutUps and play along. 

 Here are the Deets.

These are all awesome! Love the bright bright colors you used Alma. Don't normally think to put those together. Thanks for the idea.

I made this card for the challenge but I missed the part about flowers being the focal point, so unless you count the fact that the lambie is holding a flower then my card doesn't belong. sorry.
