A Hint of Mint

Today’s blog is all about the new colour mint macaron! I love this colour, it’s so dreamy and fresh and happens to go great with my other new fav colour pink petal. They make a great colour combo.

For my hint of mint challenge I decided to do something a little different. I’ve been inspired by lots of great crafters doing pretty paper crafts on embroidery hoops.

It’s my sisters birthday so I thought I would make this little gift for her to hang on her dressing table πŸ’—

I used this beautiful paper from natures poem to back the embroidery hoop. I used multipurpose glue which is strong enough to hold it all together. I then used the petal palette stamp set to stamp out these vintage flowers and birds in gray granite. Then with my aqua pen I softly added mint macaron.

The framelits for this set cut them all out perfectly. The framelits also have the cutest little detailed flower that I cut using petal pink card stock.

A few pearls here and there make it look super pretty πŸ’—

To personalise it I painted up a wooden mdf letter and decorated it with a rose here and there. I stuck this down using dimensionals.
