Botanical Bliss meets Stitched All Around

Welcome back, it's been a busy weekend so far thanks to an early Saturday morning delivery!

Unpacking was so exciting (a little like Christmas morning, lol), and so was setting up my new ink pads - look how much less space they take up!

And now I have all the new cardstock colours and have labelled sorted into the new Colour Families too!

I also scanned all of the framelits in the delivery, ready to prepare labels and magnetic sheets so I don't misplace any - been there done that, don't want to go searching again!

Now for the agony of choice, what new 2018-2019 stamp set to use? I really wanted to give the Big Shot Embossing Mats a try, so I decided on the Stitched All Around Bundle.

The background is embossed using "solid patterned" framelit using the embossing mats, how awesome is that! I used Stampin Write Markers to ink up the stamp so that the pattern is in Flirty Flamingo and the sentiment in Basic Black, then cut with the larger circular decorative Framelit. 

To carry the floral theme through from the stamp, I opened Botanical Tags Thinlets (avaialable as a bundle with the Botanical Bliss stamp set) - they are gorgeous! I cut the flower and the foliage and layered under the circular sentiment, and lastly added my current favourite embellishment... Artisan Pearls.

  1. You're card is gorgeous and also disheartening. Until this moment I had persuaded myself that I didn't need to get Stitched All Around!

    1. Oh so sorry Stephanie..... but it is a great set. I think you may have "persuaded" me to make an order here and there in the past too! hahaha
