Hi Stampers, and welcome to our Thursday Happy Stampers Blog Hop! We have a sketch challenge to play along with. I used the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Blooms stamp set for my creation today.
And here is the sketch in case you would like to play along:
Stampin’ Up! Botanical Blooms and the whole Botanical Gardens suite is one of my favorites in the Occasions Catalog! I started by creating the flowers with the Botanical Builders Framelits Dies. Then, I cut out the leaves and stamped the details with the Botanical Blooms stamps. Notice that the DSP has also been stamped-the leaves and flower centers are free of detail so that you may add your own!
I also used a stamp from Botanicals for You, from the Sale-a-Bration catalog, for the banner sentiment. This set is free with any order of $50 before tax and shipping until March 31st. If you order the Botanical Blooms bundle, you can get Botanicals for You for FREE!!
I covered a part of the sentiment with tape before stamping, then removed the tape and stamped it onto the banner image from Bloomin’ Love. Notice that I also covered the two leaf images from that banner (with tape) and then stamped. The banner and flowers are popped up onto the card base with Dimensionals, and the leaves added with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I decided to keep the inside very simple:
