Beautiful Blooms Cascade

Hi there! I have been playing with my new set, PTI Beautiful Blooms 2. So many fun flowers! I would definitely recommend this one. I started this card by combining two stamps from PTI Tin Type. I really like how that came out, a very interesting background. Its stamped in Dark Chocolate on Kraft. Next I cut a piece of PTI Bitty Boxes patterened paper with my ricrac die. I used both pieces here. I cut a bunch of flowers out of cream cardstock with my Beautiful Blooms Dies and then inked them up with the coordinating stamps. I used Summer Sunrise, Pure Poppy, and Orange Zest inks. I layered on some coordinating buttons and then stuck them all down with glue dots and pop dots. Finally I stamped the sentiment (from Delightful Dahlias) in cream. I am very pleased with this one, although its going to have to be mailed in bubble mailer.

Very pretty - I've been using tin types like this using two colours and really like how it looks. Produces a background just right for Easter projects I think.
