Fresh Bloom

Last month each of us girls on the SNS design team
were treated with a 'surprise to us'  extra stamp to create with,
none of us having any idea of what we would receive.

I have to admit mine was the perfect choice for me
as I love, love flower stamps and was truly excited when I saw it.

The stamp I received was a Stampendous Fresh Bloom Rubber stamp.
I created the card below.

I stamped on vellum using Versamark, then embossing with Gold Detail embossing powder.
(Make sure and use an anti static bag first, this gets rid of any finger prints)

I simply then, just flipped the card to the back and colored with Copics,
something you have seen me do many times before.
Next I stamped the sentiment using  a stamp from 
SNS stamp set True Beauty,
tied it to my bow and button flower,
adhered it to a card stock base and it was done.

I think the card turned out so pretty,
so pretty that I may have to make several more of these!
Thank you for visiting with me today!

This is one of the prettiest flower stamps and it's truly stunning on the vellum. I love Stampendous and I've got my eye on several of their stamps for whenever I go crazy shopping again. Your ribbon and button are the perfect gold with this. Just gorgeous, Diane!
