Hello, Friends! I hope you're having a great weekend so far. Did you enjoy viewing those scrumptious design team samples featuring Summer Berries? The ladies really had fun with that set.
Well, today is our final preview and we are showcasing, Floribunda. Be ready to knock somebody’s socks off (quite possibly your own) when you make a card using these stamps! Sized to fill an A2 card, the enchanted Floribunda border is composed of Fuchsia blooms, arching Lupine, Primroses, Morning Glory, a robust Dahlia, and trumpets of Honeysuckle. Use it vertically or horizontally, the sentiments all fit inside. A little hummingbird ALSO fits inside, or use him with any of our other botanical stamp sets when you would like an avian visitor. The large format stamp set is 6" x 8". This set is jaw-dropping gorgeous.
For my card, I used the main image and it was a JOY to color...
I stamped the image onto a piece of Gina K. Designs Artist's Choice card stock. This paper was a dream to color on. It's got just the right amount of tooth to grab the pigment and make color blending a breeze. I used Gina K. Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink for all of my stamping. It's such a deep rich black and it stamps out very crisp and clear. It didn't fade or get cloudy when I colored with my PrismaColor Colored Pencils and that's a BIG plus in my book! After I finished coloring, I used a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die to cut out the focal panel and I matted that with some Gina K. Designs Fresh Asparagus card stock. I've been using Gina's card stock for years. It is my absolute favorite. I love the weight of it and the colors are luscious and vibrant. I finished my card off by adding a piece of Fresh Asparagus organdy ribbon, also from Gina K. and I sprinkled on a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. This is a really fun set to work with. I forsee this one selling out super fast!
