Let me start by showing you a new petite Stamp & Die Combo - Bloomin' Birthday.
The new stamp set comes with the stem, a variety of blooms, a big hello and this birthday sentiment. FYI: there's one stem with leaves at the top - I just turned it upside down for the cluster of plum flowers. I decided to put them in a variety of terracotta vases using Various Vases and then I needed a shelf so I used the Rainbow Scallop Border.
I had the two vases done and filled with the blooms but the card just didn't look balanced. So I cut another vases and trimmed the top off to make a small pot. I added a bit of green vine using Bloomers Greenery.
To give the vases some dimension, I edged them in white. I really love Sugar Cube ink. You can see that it gives very solid coverage. I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in Oyster Grey in the center of the little plum flowers, and I used Gunmetal Stickles in the center of the Dijon flower.
Here's what's on this card - but be sure to keep reading for a chance at prizes and another sneak peek.
Before I share a peek at another new product, I'm excited to tell you that Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE blog to answer Taylor's Question of the Day for a chance to win a prize from the latest release!
As I was looking at this card, I started thinking the folder could go an entirely different direction and take on a quilt look. So I found a simple pattern in my stash and "quilted' it! I figured I'd change up the sentiment and used Block Party - Thanks.
The I looked again and thought that the embossing folder can really stand alone - so I went all pink with a slightly darker pink for the heart button and the Block Party - Hello die.
