Botanical Blooms for TSOT255

January 26, 2016 No Comments

I live on the East Coast and in case you didn’t hear, we had a L-O-T of snow over the weekend.  We had a wedding to attend on Saturday afternoon — appropriately snow themed.  So when we saw that the snow was going to start rolling in Friday night and continue through Saturday, we decided to play it safe and travel to the wedding location a day early.  We drove out Friday night ahead of the snow.  When we got up Saturday morning, everything was covered! and it was still snowing.

Snow Scenes from January 23, 2016

Those aren’t blurry pictures.  There’s that much snow coming down!

We checked out of our hotel to move across and down the street to the hotel where we’d be staying Saturday night.  The roads as you might guess were awful.  When we arrived, we found out the wedding had been postponed a day — until Sunday afternoon.  Thank goodness!

Kudos to the Courtyard by Marriott where we stayed.  They had plenty of food and beverage on hand, kept the parking lot plowed and even let the wedding DJ – Dr. D – set up in the lobby and entertain the stranded guests.  It was a fun, low key, evening.

Snow on the Gazebo by the evening of January 23, 2016

By the evening, the snow had gotten really deep.  The is an interior courtyard with a gazebo at one end.  The snow was about 3 feet high (up to the edge of the windows on the first floor).  Look at that snow on top of the gazebo!

We came home Sunday night to a driveway full of snow.  Thank goodness we had a shovel and snow boots!  We took turns shoveling so that we had a path to the door and got up yesterday to clear the driveway and sidewalks.

Now that you’ve heard my snow adventures, it’s time for my design team card using Botanical Blooms for TSOT255

Botanical Blooms for TSOT255

I converted the shapes in the sketch to leaves from Botanical Blooms.

With Winter arriving in full force this past weekend, I was ready for the tropical feel of this designer paper and stamp set.

I double stamped the leaves (which is easy to do with photopolymer stamps).

For the second stamping, I inked one side of the leaf stamp more heavily than the other.  This way, you get some added texture on the leaf.

Then, I used the Botanical Builder Framelits and cut the stamped leaves and a second set of leaves from Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I layered the leaves with a slight offset which adds some dimension and additional interest to the leaves.

Following the sketch, my last elements were a flower cut with the Botanical Builder Framelits and a Basic Rhinestone accent.

Thanks for stopping by!  You can find the product details below.
