How about we start with Garden Party. I wanted to use a color scheme for the florals that's somewhat unique (or at least different from my typical palette). I went with blues, green, and white and I really like how it turned out.
Then, I added the flower centers with white embossing and went back in and stamped the solid flowers with VersaMark.
I added a scalloped Edgers mat using one of the scalloped Edgers dies cut from white cardstock. Then I heat embossed the Ways To Say: Hello sentiment onto a Dark Indigo card base and I adhered the floral panel to card front.
Next, I Xyroned a piece of white cardstock and die cut three “hello” shapes using the new Ways To Say: Hello die. I layered all three and embellished the top layer with glitter. I finished up by adhering the "hello" to card front atop the embossed sentiment.
I began by trimming down a piece of the Herb Garden patterned paper and die cutting the bottom edge with Edgers die. Then I stamped the leaves and flowers from Cutaway Tags: Summer around circular opening in the pattern.
I used Vintage Jadeite for the leaves and Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet, Winter Wisteria, Aqua Mist, and Pure Poppy for the blooms.
I added the sentiment, also from the Cutaway Tags set, in the opening with Royal Velvet ink. Next, I stamped the dotted pattern from Textile Impressions onto Fresh Snow Linen card base using Winter Wisteria ink. I adhered the floral layer to card front with foam tape and rounded the corners of the card base.
To finish up, I just tied on a crochet thread bow and embellished the flower centers with pearls. It's nice and simple - just the way I like 'em!
