TE June Key Ingredients Challenge

Hi there everyone!  It's time for the monthly Key Ingredients Subscription Challenge from Taylored Expressions! If you're already a subscriber you may have already received your kit!  This month's kit features October Afternoon patterned paper paired with coordinating buttons, flower cut-outs, ribbon, and cardstock.

Creating your own flower embellishment is the challenge this month! Layering, punching, distressing, whatever it takes to create your own beautiful flower. And the elements in this month's kit will help. Please use the flower diecuts, paper flowers, and buttons to create your flower embellishment. You can use it as the focal point of your card or to embellish your stamped creation.




I made a card using these fun flower embellishments from the June Key Ingredients Kit!  I ADORE the October Afternoon Fly a Kite DP so this was an easy challenge for me!  I love the look of rolling hills made with DP that I see all over blogland and decided it would be perfect for my card!  I used one of the gingham prints from the kit and hand cut the rolling hills.  They were sponged with some distress ink and then stitched with my sewing maching to stand out.  I assembled my flowers by playing around a bit with all of the fun die cuts and buttons included in the KI kit!  The sentiment is from the new TE set called Garden Party Blooms. (It's quickly become a fave set of mine)  I threaded some thread through the button for some added interest and adhered it to the sentiment.

I love the Key Ingredients kit not only because they are perfectly coordinated, but because Taylor stays right on top of the trends and each kit is current with what is new in the stamping/scrapping world, such as new designer papers and embellishments!  I love to reach for them especially when I'm short on time because all of the thinking has been done for me!
