I’ve been on break for just about a month now but my hubby’s back in school so I’ve dusted off my crafting supplies and put them to use!!
I came across the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack by Stampin’ Up! and was immediately drawn to the delightfully bright colors! I managed to use three different patterns here (!) and used Calypso Coral as my focal color.
I had such fun stamping with this set from Clearly Besotted Stamps called Celebrating You. There are separate stamps for each of the flowers as well as the flower centers. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy they were to stamp!
Matching die cuts are available which make adding pretty details easy. Isn’t the bow and ribbon adorable?? One simple button is the final touch to this creation, the first in quite awhile!
Enabling Alert…The Precision Base Plate by Sizzix made die cutting this VERY delicate die easy. It’s meant to be used with the Magnetic Base Plate and if you use intricate dies, this is a must have tool!
I didn’t want to stop there so I flipped the card open and kept going…
I want to thank the design team over at Freshly Made Sketches for providing inspiration week after week. This week’s sketch is darling…
Wishing you joy and blessings!
