Heartfelt Thanks Build a Bouquet :D


A duo of cards using the same design for two occasions, I have used the gorgeous Build a Bouquet Stamp and Die set which comes free with issue 162 of Simply Cards and Papercraft :D I've got so many ideas for this set, so I expect you'll be seeing quite a few video with it :D

I love the bright and cheerful spring colours I've used on this card, in fact, just add purple and you've got my five favourite colours :D For the background I did a washy watercolour using my Gansai Tambi's and once it was dry I added on some over stamping using Lawn Fawn Merman ink :D I used the same sentiment that I knew I would be stamping in black as the focal sentiment, and I used a ink splatter stamp from the Creative Expressions Butterfly Splash Stamp set by Lisa Horton :D For my die-cut frame, I used the Darling Doilies Die from a past issue of Die-Cutting Essentials Magazine and I used a Tonic circle layering die to cut out the centre :D To create a nice full cluster of flowers, I used the cluster stamp from the set, and also three individual flowers which I die cut with the coordinating dies, and I used some of the individual leaves too :D For the finishing touches to the flowers and the background, I added in some pre-made Nuvo Crystal drops (colours in list below) I love the way they just finish off the centre of flowers, and how they just add that final finishing element to a background, these are definitely one of my favourite Tonic products (along with the glass cutting mat and the Nuvo Mousse of course :D) Hope you liked today's video :D
