The Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set is my ‘go to’ set, I love the flowers and the set has a ‘bunch’ of lovely greetings in a beautiful cursive script. The fact that there is a coordinating set of framelit dies just adds to the usefulness of this set.
Sometimes I am a little stumped at which colors to use, Stampin’ UP! has 50 to choose from (I know black and white are not technically colors – but when you are ‘crafty’…….. well they can be colors!) Turning to the Designer Series Paper section of the annual catalog gives lots of inspiration and heaps of choices.
I have been digging into the Petal Garden DSP Stack a lot recently – I just love all the different patterns and the beautiful combination of Pool Party and Calypso Coral – who would have thought these would go so well together.
The Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set is also another favorite – it has 37 pieces which includes the pieces to build a beautiful Bouquet or a single flower and 15 of the pieces are sentiments ranging from Happy Birthday , Congratulations, Happy Wedding Day ~ all in a lovely cursive script.
I could not decide which card to choose so here are two showcasing the DSP, stamp set and 1/8 sheer ribbon.

The inspiration for this card came from Pinterest – and shame on me I did not make a note of the creative soul who made it…………… nor could I find it again!
I am very cautious with Pinterest – yes – it is full of such beautiful ideas and a huge source of inspiration but you can get lost in it and before you know what happened several hours have passed and not a lot to show for it! (just don’t ask me how I know!) So I ration myself and on one of the occasions I did dip in I found this idea – and I just love it. Continue reading
Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack is my particular favorite at the moment. It has colors mixed together, that on the face of it, you would not normally put together ~ Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral, Sweet Sugarplum, Pool Party and Old Olive – all of them beautiful colors on their own but when combined in this paper, it is just stunning.
I am currently hosting a DSP share and one of my ladies looked at the papers in this stack and asked what she could do with the ones that just had pattern in the corner, so I did a little research and came up with an idea for her. Continue reading
