Petaloo: Grads and Dads Blog Hop

Hello, we are having a week of Grads and Dads celebration blog hop in collaboration with Quick Quotes.  I have a couple of cards to share with you using their Calypso collection together with Petaloo's Burlap flowers.  I have to tell you I am head over heels in love with this collection!!!!  :)
Here is my first card, which could be a great gift to a Grad any day.

For this card I dry embossed the yellow paper to add more texture to it and went over it with the Blue Jeans ink pad by Quick Quotes.  I love these ink pads for sure.  I also die cut a flourish by My Favorite Things and tucked the sentiment label in it and added my pretty little Burlap  flowers and butterfly.  I think it turned out pretty sweet.

My second card is for the Dads in your life.  On this card once again I dry embossed the yellow paper to add more of a manly look to it and die cut a couple of stars and a fish tail using My Favorite Things dies.

I added the sentiment label onto the fish tail and tied around it with our blue trim and I finally I tucked the stars in and topped them with our pretty flowers and a ticket sticker.

The last thing I added was a pretty green brad to my fishtail, as I thought it just finished it off really nicely.

Well, I hope you enjoyed these cards as much as I do and get to create something soon with our pretty flowers and accessories!  For now here is the Petaloo supply list I used to create these cards:

Burlap Blossoms x 10 - Apricot
Burlap Blossoms x 10 - Ivory
Trim Asst - Shades of Blue
Brad Asst x 20 - Shades of Green

Also this is my last official blog post as a Petaloo design team member.  I so enjoyed the past couple of years as a designer for this company.  Cheryl, if you are reading this, thank you for all the gorgeous products you manufacture and I will continue using them for sure as I do love pretty things. It has been a pleasure to design, enjoyed working with the best design team members, and sometimes life just gets too busy, so it was my turn to hand over the "duty" to design with these pretty products to someone else.  Can't wait to see what Petaloo has up it's sleeves as I will be drooling over the pretty things.  :)

Thanks for stopping  by and wishing you a fabulous day as always!!
