This has truly become one of my favorite features. I love coming up with a design and thinking of ways to progressively incorporate details that make the projects shine. The Sweet Life is a set that I've always really enjoyed using, but don't pull out nearly often enough. It was a pleasure to pull out these multi-layered blooms and leaves for my projects today.
Let's start today with my "Simple" project. I liked the idea of tucking the roses into a vase, so I paired The Sweet Life with my Vogue Vases set.
I began by stamping the roses onto a panel of white cardstock using bright, sunny yellows. Then, I stamped the base image onto a sticky note and cut around it to create a mask. I masked the roses before stamping my vase. I did the same with the vase in order to stamp the shadow.
Next up, I have my intermediate design. I added dimension by using the coordinating die collection to include both flat stamped and die cut flowers.
And lastly, I have my "Spectacular" version of the series. I made the bouquet much more substantial with additional roses and leaves and used a more decorative frame to draw the eye toward the focal point.
