The Stamp Review Crew: Beautiful Bouquet Edition

Beautiful Bouquet
It’s time for the Stamp Review Crew: Beautiful Bouquet Edition! If this is your very first visit to one of our hops, the Stamp Review Crew is a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first, third and fifth Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set used in a variety of ways, giving you loads of inspiration for that set. The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog. You will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want. This week we are featuring the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from my good friend, Mike Funke. After visiting me, you will continue to the next stop, the talented Bronwyn Eastley.

Beautiful Bouquet is one of my favorite sets.  Most of what I have created with it was designed using brighter colors and the larger flower images. This time, however, I decided to highlight it in more subtle tones.  I hope you enjoy today’s card.

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Because I wanted to keep the look soft and subtle, I created my own paper by using washes of Highland Heather and Pool Party for the flowers.  The leaves are Whisper White, while the stems are Soft Sea Foam.

For a bit of bling, I added a single rhinestone and several of the new Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.

The Basket Weave 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds a touch of texture, and provides the perfect back drop for the bouquet.  The simple sentiment is accented with more pearls, of course!

I love the soft and delicate look of this card.  To show you how Beautiful Bouquet looks in brighter colors with larger flowers, here is the card I CASED for the On the CASE with Ann and Nicole series:
