In my newest set "Arranged with Love", releasing this Thursday from Gina K Designs, I have taken all the time and guesswork out for you with this large frame stamp image, which I painstakingly arranged and edited a few of my favorites from "A Year of Flowers" to give you an extravagant, layered-looking bouquet, ready to layer onto your card front, that you can send for any occasion, year-round! It's like sending a real bouquet! The framed flowers image has a tiny blank "card" nestled in the center, and I've included 10 different greeting options for all occasions. You will adore the large, elegant font. I colored this with Copics and trimmed it with a pair of postage edge scissors, it is so easy to change the look with decorative scissors and sooo easy to cut, just follow the line! Card base is Pure Luxury Rocket Red.
Now, if you don't want to color, this set is also for you! Check out how beautiful it is stamped in a colored ink! (You won't believe how quick it was to put this clear gift box of cards together!)
"Arranged with Love" is a wonderful stand alone set, but also the perfect companion to your "A Year of Flowers". By using a single bloom to decorate the inside of the card or your envelope, or if you don't see your favorite flower in this new set (or want to change this up to match your season, for example: sunflower for fall), simply cut one out and pop one into this arrangement, it will fit right in! :) Here I've stamped the frame image directly onto my card base and turned it sideways, then covered the little sentiment card with some masked "A Year of Flowers" lilies. It's like custom DP for the first set, but in a frame!
Below you can see how I stamped the individual lilies on the flap to decorate the back. I stamped the background one more time on some white CS and in plum ink and stamped another greeting from the set over it in Memento Black.
The next peek is the new set from Nina Brackett: "Bug Me Anytime". It is such a fun, funky set! It includes flower parts and pieces so you can make your own modern-looking arrangements, plus, of course, BUGS!! I stamped the big dotted strip from "Ribbon Stripes" for the side and bottom , it is such a nice match for the large dots that accent the majority of the images in this set, and the ladybug! So cute!! This time I used Almost Amethyst with the Rocket Red and I am lovin' this color combo!
