Bright Blossoms 2

I'm still having fun with my Bright Blossoms stamp set, one of the Summer Smooches items!  The Summer Smooches ensemble is a sneak peek special this month for customers to order something just this month that will be in the new catalog coming out June 1st!



While cleaning out my studio supplies in preparation for getting my new cabinets, I ran across a package of these Beveled Windowpanes.  They are a fun little accessory and I had only used a couple of them out of the package.  I thought it was time to get another one out and play with it!  I like how they kind of magnify the image behind it and make it seem more prominent and important!


The base of the card is Lucky Limeade (I can't believe I let myself get down to only a couple sheets of this!  I had to hurriedly order MORE…love this bright green!)  I layered on Sahara Sand and then the chevron pattern from Summer Smooches Designer Paper.  I stamped the leaves from Bright Blossoms upside down for a little different twist on it.  I wrapped the Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon around the Sahara Sand to the front.  The flower vase was inked with Stampin' Write markers of Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade and Daffodil Delight on Whisper White, then I lined up the Beveled Windowpane on top of it and cut slits with my craft knife.  The ribbon was fed up thru the back of the stamped image and thru the windowpanes to hold it in place.  I tied off the ribbon on each side with Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine.  Finally, I stamped Happy Birthday from Family Reunion stamp set in Poppy Parade ink. 


It came together pretty quickly and I can't wait to send it off to the recipient when it is their birthday!
