Hello Stampers!

Hello from Arkansas! This week we are parked in Bentonville and this is a super fun place that is very cyclist centric.  I am getting a lot of exercise this week and loving it!

I did get some stamping done while the weather added some rain to our day.  I am loving the Spotlight on Nature bundle.  The flowers are so beautiful, and the dies are so versatile I don’t think you can go wrong.  

I embossed the card front with the new Eyelet 3D embossing folder.  I then grabbed two sheets of the Thoughtful Journey DSP and selected a background with watercolor washes, one with shades of fresh freesia and one with shades of teal or pretty peacock. The DSP with the shades of Pretty Peacock I die cut with one of the circle dies from the Spotlight on Nature die set.

Next, I stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, once on the die cut circle and once on the fresh freesia DSP.  I then took Petunia Pop Stampin’ Blend, you can use the light or the dark, and colored the flower in a bit.  I focused mostly on the base and did very little coloring toward the top of the flower. I then fussy cut the three flower tops and adhered them to the flowers onto the circle die. I then took the light Pretty Peacock blend marker and did the same with the leaves focusing on the bases of the leaves and the tips, leaving the middles alone.

Once the flowers were done, I used dimensionals to adhere the circle die to the card front.  I stamped the greeting in Pretty Peacock onto Basic White card stock and die cut it with the small postage die from the Perennial Postage die set (I love that set!).  I added the greeting with some Stampin’ Seal and then finished off the card with a few embellishments.

I know that fussy cutting is not everyone’s favorite, but this card came together super-fast, and I love how it turned out.  So far, I feel like this bundle is nice and easy to work with.

Which bundle, in the new catalog, is your favorite?

Hope you have a fantastic day, thanks for stopping by!
