All Awash with Flowers

Another beautiful weekend! I love that Stampin' Up! has given us an opportunity to get a peak at the new, upcoming Idea Book and Catalog with this Awash with Flowers stamp set. I received this stamp set earlier this month but I had not had a chance to ink it up but thought it would be perfect for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge.

I had a piece of Rose Red cardstock sitting on my desk from an earlier project so I decided to use it for my cardbase. The designer paper is Pawsitively Prints DSP from the Build-a-bear collection and is oh so cute. The main stamped image used the clear mounted stamps which made it very easy to line up the tops of the flowers and the stems (I did flip the stem and stamped just the bottom to be able to connect the upper flower to the stem of the bottom). Since this is a 2 step stamp I then inked the full image with the Brocade Blue, Rose Red, and Old Olive inks to quickly fill in the flower images. I added a little bling to the flowers by adding Dazzling Diamonds to accent the flower.

Once ready I matted the image on a piece of Old Olive cardstock before adding the Rose Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, and the greeting from the Tiny Tiny Wishes stamp set (this has quickly become my "go to" stamp set for the perfect greating.

I showed this card to this weekend and it was a big hit for it's pretty simplicity. Also, you could change the sentiment to fit any occassion.

Hope you enjoy and are able to stamp with this new stamp set soon, you'll love it!
