Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 3: Fuchsia Flower

Welcome to the third week of the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop! This week the designers are showing you their takes on Brenda Pinnick's Flower, Beauty Bloom, Originals Die #655455. Brenda was kind enough to cut these from various materials and send them to us. My combination is fun & funky! The felt is from National Non-Wovens, and the animal print fabric is from Brenda's Couluer Vie Collection with Henry Glass & Co. This color and pattern were definitely a little different from what I would ordinarily choose, but boy, did I have fun with it!

I layered the pieces and gathered them with a little stitching. Then I used a french knot to grab all the pieces together in the center. To highlight the fun animal print, I edged the pieces with Stardust Stickles. Sizzix dies will cut a variety of materials, like those shown here. It's really a great way to bring versatility to your crafting.

I placed the flower on a piece of Sticky Back Canvas that I die cut from another Sizzix die, the Baroque Movers & Shapers die. The canvas was a little plain on its own, so I stamped it with Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Retro (LOVE this set! I reach for it all the time!), then placed it on some Raspberry Fizz cardstock that was machine stitched around the edges. The card base was cut from PTI's Vintage Cream.

This Beauty Bloom die is such a gorgeous, layered flower. I think there are so many possibilities with it and will definitely be adding this Beauty to my collection!

Thanks for stopping by here on the Hop. All the projects will be up by noon eastern today and you can use the widget on the right margin to keep hopping, or you can refer back to the Master List on the Sizzix Blog for a complete list of participants. Have a wonderful day and be well! ~ Jenn
