Bouquet Bunch

Well, it's Monday!  The weekends go so fast, don't they?


I found a sketch challenge on Get Sketchy this week (GS37) that looked interesting!  I knew I wanted to use Stampin' Up!'s Bouquet Bunch from the Summer Mini, too (we are featuring Bouquet Bunch, Watercolor Trio and A Little Bit of Magic this week on Create with Connie and Mary)! 


I started with a base of Orchid Opulence cardstock.  I ran a layer of Whisper White thru the Big Shot with the new Square Lattice Impressions Folder, it was layered on Rich Razzleberry Cardstock.  I added a piece of Cottage Wall Designer Paper and layered it on Orchid Opulence.  I also added the little strip of Rich Razzleberry on the right. 


I stamped the bouquet from Bouquet Bunch with Old Olive Classic Ink on the stems and Basic Brown for the tops on Shimmery White Cardstock.  I used my AquaPainter and Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence and Old Olive Classic Markers to watercolor.  I punched it with the 1 3/8 Circle Punch, then layered it on the Scallop Circle.


At the bottom, I added the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon, then stamped Kind Thanks from Stampin' Up!'s Thank You Kindly stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink on Orchid Opulence, then punched with the Modern Label punch.  I added two Pewter Mini Brads along the sides.  Finally, I added a little sparkle with Tombow Multipurpose Glue and Dazzling Diamonds to the flowers.


Kind of sweet and simple, I think!  Hope you have a wonderful week…mine is pretty busy, but what else is new?  lol!


If you haven't checked out the Create with Connie and Mary site yet, now is the time to do it!  We feature new Summer Mini products every week.  There is a new project posted every day and there will be a minimum of two fabulous tutorials each and every week. We like to have lots of fun so we have challenges and prizes for our subscribers. Our sites stay up long after the session is done, so you will always have access to the site and the tutorials.
