Today I’m sharing our Make and Take project from yesterday’s Paper Picnic. It was really popular and everyone fell in love with this month’s Stamp of the Month after using it. I was inspired by a card shared by Margaret Maroney on our team Facebook page.
Here is the card version
And here it is as a border on a page layout
The single bloom is a sweet focal point. It is stamped in Poppy ink. For the base, ink the stamp, stamp once onto scrap paper and then stamp onto your cardstock without re-inking. This is called second generation stamping and gives a lovely subtle shade. It’s a great technique to use when you only have a few ink pad colours as it doubles your range!
Bitty Sparkles (Z1263) amongst the Baby’s Breath image add a subtle bit of shine to the design. La Vie En Rose papers add interesting texture to the layout without overwhelming it and the Gold Foil (Z3149) helps frame the whole thing.
Beloved Bouquet (S0116) is only available during January, 2016. Purchase your set for $27.00AU or just $7.50 when accompanied by a $75 order. You can place an online order here.
