The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 67

Well you have jumped to my page from the amazing Alisa

A sketch week this week and I have to use the Botanical Gardens set again as I am loving it!

Here is the sketch

I thought that using the flowers as the flagging up the top would work and making my own background paper as I didn't want to use the papers and colours that go with this set.

Pretty what are your thoughts?
To be honest I really did not like this set when I first saw it and then I saw some amazing things made by Carolyn Bennie so I just had to have it... I have been super happy with the cards that I have come up with.

  • Stamps: Botanical Blooms and sentiment from Balloon Builders
  • Ink:  Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey
  • Card: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder and Hello Honey
  • Tools: Botanical Builder Framelits Dies with the Bigshot, 1 1/4 inch punch, sponge daubers
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals and wink of stella

Lets see what Leah has been up to this week

  4. I love how you have used the flowers up the top instead of the flags!

  5. The leaves die creates a beautiful edge on both sides of your central layer. I love the mix of die cut and stamped flowers too.
