It’s day two of my “Marie Condo” farewell to the retiring products from the 2019 Annual Catalogue and the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue. You can view all the retiring products in my online shop.
Every day I will be featuring a stamp set that is retiring and thank it for its service by showcasing a card (or two) that I’ve made with the stamp set.
And today’s stamp set is (drum roll)….. Accented Blooms.
This is such a fun set to play with because the two large sentiments can be punched out using the Tailored Tag punch. However, for my first card today I’ve taken a different approach, using the smallest circle in the Stitched Shapes Die set to die cut out sections from the largest stamp in this set.
After stamping the image in Memento Ink and die cutting the circles I used my blends to colour in the flowers. Here’s a close up of these beautiful flowers.
A simple Crumb Cake Card base is always my go to for any colour and here I’ve added a strip of the retiring Burlap Ribbon to layer my sentiment onto before the final touch – a simple linen thread bow. I die cut the sentiment using a stitched rectangle die to match the stitched circles.
I loved the look of Crumb Cake with this card so much I made a simple square monochromatic card using the large flower image again, but this time featuring the hello stamp, punched out with the tailored tag punch.
Did you notice the bling on this card? They are the brand new Gilded Gems from the Ornate Garden Suite. These are an early order item from the new catalogue and available now. I love these gems!
I hope you are enjoying a daily hit of crafting inspiration…I’m certainly enjoying taking the time to create every day.
Here is the list of products for the card I made today.Product List
