Simply Stampin' .......

........ with these colours
& my set of Stampin' Up stamps - Bliss.

This will have to be a very quick description as the deadline is 6pm & as I type I have just an hour left to complete the inside, photograph & type the post.

The inks I used are Memento (Sweet Plum, Angel Pink & New Sprout) for stamping & edging cardstock. The pot for my flowers & their stems came from a Petaloo Florist kit & the leaves are punched with a Nellie Snellen Punch. The corner punch used on the inside is a Fiskars & the remaining corner punches plus the circle & scalloped circle are all Woodware. All the cardstock & the pink pearls were from stash. I stamped 10 of the flowers from the Bliss set, cut them out & shaped them with a ball tool then layered them in pairs & added just a touch of Ice Stickles Glitter Glue (Cherry Ice) as I wanted the stamped spots of the flower centres to be visible.

I see just what you mean about being a 'layer girl', this one is just gorgeous, love the colours and the details of the tiny flowers. And don't you just love the name Memento give to their inks ?

When I am so close to a deadline, I literally type one line and publish :) I can always go back and edit later - lol.

this is a beautiful colour combination Paula, and your stamped and cut flowers look brilliant. I love how they are in a pot - perfect for this time of year, and I really like the background stamp.

hope you are well and having a good weekend,
