So last night at about 10:30pm I sat down to write up this morning's posts and realized we were scheduled to peek a different set than I remembered. Uh-oh! And since I hadn't stamped with Dream Big yet, it was up to the stamp room, do not pass go, do not collect $200. LOL Luckily for me, the stamps in this set make creating super easy. I love the large size of this flower (about 2.25" wide) with three sizes perfect for layering or going solo. I can't wait to have a little time to play around with stamping my own background paper with these bold blooms.
For this project, I started by stamping the three blooms in Blushing Bride, then trimming out with a thin white border. I layered these together with dimensional tape and embellished with a SU! filigree brad and a metal flower from Making Memories. I then set the flower aside and stamped some leaves directly onto Crumb Cake paper in Old Olive, then embossed the embrace life sentiment in white at the bottom. The paper is from the 6 x 6 SU! hostess pack of in color papers and I added a little bow with some Blushing Bride striped twill. To finish off, I wanted a little dangling somethin' somethin' from my ribbon, so I chose the mini vintage tags from SU! The paper on the tags is actually a sparkly vanilla, which clashed with my project, so I used a 3/4" circle punch, glued it to the tag and punched a hole with my crop-a-dile. The sweet little heart is also a stamp from Dream Big and is stamped in Blushing Bride to match. My final touch was a few little pink pearls along the sides to add some pizzazz to the DP.
That's all from me today. Time to check out more peeks on the Diva blogs...
