Petaloo and Creative Embellishments Mother's Day Blog Hop

 Petaloo/Creative Embellishment Blog Hop 

Petaloo has teamed up with Creative Embellishments this month for a fabulous product exchange and non-traditional blog hop ( visit both the Petaloo and Creative Embellishments blog daily.) 

 And dare I say PRIZES?????  OK I said it.  yes there will be prizes offered at the Petaloo and Creative Embellishments blog.  You can find the prize at the bottom of this post so scroll on down. 

This means I had the opportunity to add Creative Embellishments chipboard to my cards.  That brings a giant smile to my face. 

You can see the creative projects from both teams and join the hop at Petaloo's blog here and Creative Embellishments right here.  

Mother's Day is fast approaching so I created 3 cards with a feminine touch just for the occasion.  It'll be here in a blink and I'll be prepared.

 This is my first card.  I used Maja Design's newly re-released Sofiero collection for each of my cards.  I also created a card that played along with the mood board for Maja Design.   Won't you please consider trying your hand at the mood board?  YOu can find all the rules right here. 
Your creation needs to be emailed by April 20th to  

Here is a close up of the embellishments on this card.  
 The gorgeous lavender flower is Petaloo's Darjeeling Anemone in Purple .  The accenting  cream flowers  are Petaloo's Darjeeling Teastained Cream Dahlias .

The floral cluster rests atop a sweet chipboard piece, Creative Embellishments Chipboard - Flourish Set 2,  I kept the chipboard the natural color and dabbed some whitewash over the chipboard.  

This is the second card.  I love how delicate this feels.  I think this is the card that my mom will receive.  For this card, I used the following flowers:
and the chippies used were:
Here's a close up of the  beautiful embellishments.
The chipboard treatments were kept quite simple with just white acrylic paint and a touch of brown edge inking.  
My last card is also rather delicate thanks to Petaloo and Creative Embellishments.  

Now you may say to yourself -"hmmmm crazy Jennifer says she used Petaloo's Maroon Hydrangeas on this card.   And yet I see no maroon."  Well let me tell you how cool one packet of Petaloo Velvet - Hydrangeas in Maroon  can be.

The packet of hydrangeas has so many variations of color. I took a flower that had a little less maroon and more green and cream.  I cut it to add as the greens in the cluster.  I did not want to use the leaves from the package because they just were too big for my floral cluster.

Don't forget to hop on over to the Creative Embellishments Blog found here for more gorgeous inspiration and a chance to win some prizes.  You can continue the blog hop and  shop for Creative Embellishments chipboard right here.
