Stampin’ Up! Blooms and Wishes Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today I decided to use the Blooms and Wishes stamp set.  This is a carry over from the 2016-2017 catalog.  Even though the stamp set is an old one, it is new to me!  I just received this set a few weeks ago and was excited to create with it.  I am placing my order for all my new products this week and then I will start sharing them with you.  Today we had a color challenge of Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Pool Party.    I was not sure about the color combo and to my surprise I really like it.  (I did add a touch of yellow, I just couldn’t help myself.  LOL)

    I really like how you did your background. I’m so glad you said how you did the baker’s twine and ribbon because I would have been struggling trying to tie it into a bow. I never thought about doing the bow separately and gluing it on. You’ve saved me a lot of time.

  2. Jaimie says:

    So so pretty and these colors are just perfect for your flowers. And as always, the inside is equally pretty.

    This is absolutely gorgeous! I love those flowers and the colors are beautiful! Your creativity amazes me!
