A bouquet of blossoms

Today I would like to share three cards that I made using the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set.

A set of 6 stamps available in both Clear and Wood Mount 

A pretty bouquet of Betsy's Blossoms

 

This first card is I think, a really simple but clean looking one. I stamped the large floral stamp three times in three different colours, Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green, three of the new In Colors. I then used my Postage Stamp punch to punch out the squares from the stamped images. 

The 1-1/4" Square Punch was then used to punch out squares from a piece of Midnight Muse card stock (another new In Color). 

A greeting from the Curly Cute stamp set was stamped in Midnight Muse and the squares were added to the Whisper White card base using Dimensionals.

No, I have not resorted to retro decor on my walls. But, in case you are wondering, the background for the photo is a piece of 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper from the Floral District paper pack.



This second card has a Raspberry Ripple card base on which I added a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Floral District pack.

On a piece of Whisper White card stock I stamped the large sentiment from the Just Believe stamp set in Raspberry Ripple and then in the bottom right corner I used the small triple flower stamp and stamped the image three times in Summer Starfruit. I then stamped the image again on a spare piece of card stock but this time in Raspberry Ripple. I then cut this fourth image out and added it over the three using Dimensionals.


This last card was made using a Raspberry Ripple card base and again I added a piece of Floral District Designer Series Paper.

On a piece of Whisper White card stock I stamped the small single flower image in three different colours, Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse. I have to apologise here because I could not find my Stamp-a-ma-jig so the flowers are not exactly in-line but oh well.

The Whisper White card stock was matted onto a piece of Gumball Green card stock and it was then matted onto the card base using Dimensionals. I also stamped a greeting from the Itty Bitty Banner stamp set in the bottom right corner.

Did you know that all of the stamp sets in the new Annual Catalogue now come in both Wood and Clear Mount? And, all single stamps come in Wood Mount with a few of them also available in Clear Mount. Good news for all of you who like the convenient storage that comes with the Clear Mount stamp sets.

I am going to be busy over the next few days preparing for my Open House this coming Saturday. If you live near RG40 3JQ drop me a line for directions - see My Events and Classes page for more information about times etc.

In the meantime, don't forget to check out the blog hop that I took part in yesterday (Monday 1 October). Hopefully all the links are now up and working as there were apparently a few technical glitches. Don't you just love technology...
