Botanical Blooms in Soft Sky and Basic Black

Today is quite exciting!  The Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration have begun!

After getting off to a very chilly start (below zero), I spent part of the day taking care of life details and catching up with friends and team members.  It wasn’t until later this afternoon that I got down to creating.  Botanical Blooms was calling my name!  It’s already been very popular with my customers today!

Here’s my first creation with the Botanical Blooms bundle.

The detailed dies in the Botanical Builder Framelits are well..to die for!  Even before stamping, these flowers were amazing!!

I’ve used Soft Sky and Basic Black which give a clean, sophisticated look to this card.

Botanical Blooms in Soft Sky and Basic Black - detail - from theartfulinker.com

After die cutting the long leafy piece, I found that the die had left a slight indent on the “negative” side.  I took my snips and carefully cut along the indent so that the black outline also has a leaf shape.

On the large flowers, I stamped a smaller solid flower in the center.  And on the smaller flowers, I stamped the cluster of tiny flowers.  Ink for both was Soft Sky.  The tone on tone stamping gives more dimension than detail in this instance.

The frilly black flower centers were a breeze to get out of the dies when I used my new Die Brush.  This was a must have after trying it at On Stage back in November.

Thanks for stopping by!
