May 2013 Blog Hop

This month we are giving you an entire rainbow of "bouquet builder" color schemes to incorporate into a new floral project.  Just pick your favorite floral set at the moment, pull out the ink colors for one of the gorgeous inspiration pieces above and create!  

I chose my brand new Ruby Rose stamp and die set by Dawn McVey. I LOVE it the flowers are so cute. They are a little whimsical and that is pretty edgy for me. I am usually not drawn to that style but as I said, it is a LITTLE whimsical ;)

One of the things I like best about the set is the leaves. They looks so dimensional. They will be so useful for other things. 

I used the Winterberry die and Summer Sunrise card stock because, well, that made it more literal. I like it, it adds extra interest!

But... I did HAVE to cut the dies apart *gasp*! I have never cut a die apart and have never wanted to. In fact, my Tremendous Tags and Sketched Shapes die have come apart and it ticks me off!
I have enough trouble keeping track of my stuff! But in this case you HAVE to cut them. They come nested and you cannot stamp them that way! Trust me on this ;)

Thank you for looking at my blog!
