Betsy's Blossoms - Blossom Punch
A little peek at a new stamp set Betsy's Blossoms debuting in a couple of days. This is from the Clean and Simple Stamping Blog, FTL 192.
When River Rock was an In Color I remembered seeing a colour challenge using River Rock and Basic Block. All the samples were stunning together! When experimenting I first tried just a black and white card, which I wasn't happy with it. I then remembered the River Rock and Basic Black colour combo. I still love it!
The punched flower with this stamp set was inspired from a sample by Dawn Sonju I saw on a Stampin' Up! website. I just cut out an additional flower from the set and used it for the centre of the flower. The main panel and the flower are raised up on dimensionals for a little added interest. There is also one of the large rhinestones for some bling!
Here is the sketch...give it a try! I cut my black matting piece to
4 1/4" X 3". The white piece was cut just 1/8" smaller; as apposed to the regular 1/4".
Thanks for stopping by. Happy stamping!
