Stampin’ Up! Botanicals for You for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

My card for the hop today is from the Stampin’ Up! Botanicals for You stamp set. This set is only available for a short time during Sale-a- Bration.  I am loving it, because it coordinates with the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and the Botanical Blooms stamp set!

I used the leaf die from the Botanical Builders Framelits to cut the one side of my Whisper White panel.  Then, I cut a piece of Mint Macron to fill in the negative space of the leaf, and attached it to the underside with some glue from my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Next, I stamped the large sentiment with Basic Black Archival ink and began to add the flowers and leaves with Melon Mango, Crushed Curry and Mint Macaron inks.

To finish the card, I chose one of the other sentiments from Botanicals for You and stamped it in Basic Black archival ink.  The Crushed Curry butterfly is from Butterfly Basics, and the flower in Mint Macaron and Melon Mambo  from Botanicals for You from Stampin’ Up!

Card measurements in inches and products used will be found at the end of the post.

    Beautiful! I think this might be my very favorite thing in the SAB flyer. I love the sentiments and the inside-sentiments. You did such a pretty job with the flowers and that edge cut. I might be going to CAS9E) this for a mini-workshop (yes in my hotel room!!) this weekend! 🙂
