Bunched Bouquet stamps - Just for you

A wee while ago, Tonic Studios released a wonderful collection of flower stamp sets called "Bunched Bouquets" and here is one of the samples I made for the launch. I have used the "Modern Buttonhole" stamp set from the collection to create my card.

I created my card base by using the pinhole nesting dies and then stamped a background using the smaller elements in the stamp set. Next I created a pocket using the floral motif die from one of the framed screen sets, trimming it to shape using an outer edge from Celtic Circles dies, finishing it with a piece of co-ordinating card stock. Then it was on to the flowers ...

I stamped the flowers in contrasting distress ink and then using a clear embossing pad, covered them in Nuvo Shimmering Pearl embossing powder. In real life this adds so much sparkle and shine to the flowers.

Finally I created a tag using all the flowers to create my background and matted it on to coordinating card stock (Tonic Essential range of course). The sentiment was made by cutting out the letters I needed from the Clarice lower case alphabet. The "ribbon" in the tag is actually made from the same card I used on the pocket.

Here's a photo of both the card and the tag. I can see the possibilities of this in so many different colourways .... can feel another play coming on ...
