Awash With Flowers

This vibrant color palette along with the floral inspiration gave the chance to pull out my brand new two-step stamping set, Awash With Flowers, which is a sneak-peek set from the new Stampin' Up! catalog coming out this summer. The set will be available in both wood mount and cling mount for customer purchase on April 1st.

I used Basic Black ink to stamp the outline images, then alternated the red, pink and yellow to stamp the solid images. The Square Fire Rhinestone Brads were placed in the flower centers to give a little extra pop, but the real "wow" for me is that yummy wide red ribbon! Oh, what would I do without ribbon, buttons & brads?

Stamps: Awash With Flowers, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Yoyo Yellow, Pink Passion, Whisper White CS, Nouveau Chic DSP & Petal Party SSK
Ink: Yoyo Yellow, Pink Passion, Real Red, Certainly Celery, Basic Black
Other: 1" Stitched Real Red Grosgrain, Square Fire Rhinestone Brads, Paper Piercer, Scallop Edge Punch
