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!
