Smudges and all, I love this card. Leave it to me to use a stamp set that is filled with two step fruit images to use the flowers instead. Like I said, I love flowers. The fruits are great though, and I do plan on making fun projects with them too. I actually used an old kit from nearly a year ago. I love putting old kits to use.
The prior kit had patterned paper in these colors, but has been retired, so I thought I would make my own. Making background images is so much fun to me. It takes me back to the roots of my stamping, using quality tools for endless creativity. This stamp set is made for just that thing. You will be seeing it a lot I think.
The flowers were stamped first in calypso coral and then outlined with the coordinating stamp. They match, but don’t have to be exact. It goes with the artsy look it is designed with. Works even better for me. And the sentiment, how perfect is that. I opted to center the flowers with large basic rhinestones instead of the stamped center. Either would have been nice, but I wanted sparkle. A finishing touch of solid bakers twine with a sweet bow. It actually came together pretty quick, it helps to have leftover kits to work with. That makes me fuss less when I have last minute class cancellations because I know I will put the pre-cut kits to good use eventually.
Have a creative day!
