Blossom Bouquet

Here's another one of the Shoe box swaps from my Team meeting in April. I guess I'd better hurry up and share the rest - we're already into May!

This was Patti's...

We used the Blossom Bouquet punch (Item 122464 $23.95) and punched out blossoms from Pacific Point, Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait card stocks.

Then we played mix and match - and look how cute it turned out!

Oh yeah - those are Glitter brads in the middle of the punched images!

And the ribbon is the Poppy Parade Stitched-Poly. And we just frayed the edges of the ribbon! I didn't even know you could do that! See, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! Hee hee

This was Becky's card...

We used the scallop punch on Tempting Turquoise CS, then attached that to some Pawsitively Prints DSP. We attached a small orange strip and then we stamped and punched with 3/4" circle punch three flowers from the Bold Blossom set. We also stamped some leaves on the Pear Pizazz card using Versamark ink.

And, finally, we added some BLING! Yep, rhinestones. Adds a nice happy little touch, I think.

The Pawsitively Prints DSP is one of my favorites. It's designed to be used with the Build-A-Bear dies - and is great for that - but I like the fact that all the patterns in the papers are very small.

That helps them become useable with a lot of other dies and punches - die-cuts and punched pieces with small patterns will work almost anywhere.

Hope you enjoyed something you saw tonight!

Thanks for stopping by - come back soon...
