Bella Blossom

I love this set!! My sil is here and she brought this set with her! We have been having so much fun stamping together when we get the chance. We have had a crazy past couple of weeks here. Sorry to all of you for not posting lately and to those of you who have blogs that I visit. My youngest, who is only 21 months, had several febrile seizures last Sunday and we have been in the hospital for the past week. She is home safe and sound now! I will eventually be by your blogs to see what you have been up to! Thanks for understanding!!!

The set is called Bella Blossoms. I used chocolate chip, pretty in pink, very vanilla, and a bit of kiwi kiss card stock. For the flower I used pretty in pink, regal rose, certain celery, and old olive markers for the flower. I would first color the stamp with the lightest marker and then add accents with the darker color. I stamped the flower several times and then cut out the different parts that I wanted to pop out with dimensionals. For the bottom layer of the flower that is popped out I just cut a stamped image out and folded the edges and glued it on. I add stickles to the center of the flower. I stamped the swirls from Baroque Motifs in pretty in pink for the background. For the friend saying, I stamped it in chocolate chip and then punched it out with curly label punch. I sponged all of the edges with chocolate chip and then glued it all together!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
