Fresh Cut Florals from Wplus9

Quick post of a card that I made yesterday. I'm loving the Fresh Cut Floral stamp set from Wplus9! So cute and so versatile.

Stamped a PTI Kraft cardstock panel with the Hero Arts/Basic Grey Woodgrain Background stamp with Fresh Ink Paper White. Then I impressed it using PTI's Vertical Chevron Cover Plate. Cut two circles with some Spellbinder dies (one from PTI Vintage Cream cardstock; one from PTI Soft Stone pp). The flowers and leaves were diecut from PTI Vintage Cream cardstock and stamped with Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado, Sweet Blush, Melon Berry, Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet (all PTI) and Sugar (from Fresh Ink). Banner is from a Simon Says Stamp die, stamped in Versafine Black with one of the sentiments from the Fresh Cut Floral set.

This is one stamp set that I'm going to be using often!

Thanks for visiting!

Papertrey Ink July 2013 Blog Hop

This month there is a colour challenge for the PTI blog hop. Lots of super delicious combinations to choose from! I really wanted the chance to do some stamping for it, but unfortunately the last two weeks have been super busy for me. I managed to squeak out one card last night. My inspiration was this combo:

And this is what I came up with:

Of course it didn't start out like this! (Does it ever?) My original idea just wasn't working and somehow I ended up with this. Absolutely everything (except the black sequins) is from Papertrey.

Thanks for visiting.
