Stylin' Stampin' Squad "Blooming" Blog Hop

Thank you so much for joining us for our March Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop!  Temperatures are on the rise and there is just one short week until the official first day of Spring!  We are all so ready to put away our snowflakes and break out the flowers in our craft rooms!  Stampin' Up! has so many options for Spring-time flowers and we are showing you just a few of those today!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 7 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop – Darcy of DJ's Stampin' Place. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

I'm sharing one of my favorite stamp sets with you today...Regarding Dahlias.  The big, beautiful dahlia is gorgeous stamped in any color, but it is downright stunning when embossed and colored!  I created a colorful Spring-time card and a cute little treat box to match.
I embossed the dahlia in white on Whisper White cardstock then used my Aqua Painter to create the pretty shades of pink (Strawberry Slush) and purple (Rich Razzleberry).  Some clear embossed dahlias in the background and a little butterfly makes this a "picture perfect" card :-)
 The matching treat box was made using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and Simply Scored.  You can find a great tutorial for the box HERE.  Thank you Heidi for providing great instructions on your blog!
