Playing Around in my Flower Patch ~ Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our final Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop!  I'm a little sad to see this hop come to an end, but our amazingly talented group of stampers are not parting ways :-)  You can find us over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration where we have a post for you EVERY weekday.  From fun card and scrapbook sketches, to color challenges and awesome tutorials, we have a blog full of talented stampers!  Be sure to check us out if you haven't done so already!
Before we close up this hop, we are all here to share our creations with NEW Catalog Items!  Be sure to hop all the way through so you don't miss out on anything!
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 8 on the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop - Pam S with Stampin' in the Sun. 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 could not WAIT to order the new Photopolymer Flower Patch Stamp Set!  I'm not a huge flower fan, but this set is just so much fun.  And the fact that there are matching framelits makes it that much better! 
I found these cute little vases a while back at a local craft store and they have been sitting, empty in my living room.  My son Aidan has been bugging me for WEEKS to make some flowers to put in them and was so happy to "FINALLY" {as he told me yesterday} see them filled!
These flowers were made by stamping the images on Filter Paper and placing them on floral wire.  I stamped each image 4 times to create a fuller flower.  I wasn't sure how well they would turn out, but I was pretty happy with the end result.  I'm embarrassed to say that this is only the second time I've ever used the Filter Paper, but you can bet I'll be using it more!
The two cards I made are CASE's from page 155 in the new catalog.  I love the color combo and the Kraft paper!
