'Inspired by Stamping' June Release - Elegant Flowers

Hello!  Did you all see the amazing newly-released stamps for June at 'Inspired by Stamping'?  No?  Check them out HERE at the store -- you'll LOVE them!

I've got a creation to show you using one of those new sets, called Elegant Flowers:



It gave me a chance to try out some new papers from Michael's that I've been hoarding.  :-)


A blue rose?  Yes, why not!  I took my cue from the patterned paper.  The light green paper is Prima.  It's so subtle you can barely see the design.


I paired two different rose stamps here:  one with a stem, and a full-blown rose with no stem.  I love how I can combine these to make what I want!  Behind the 3D rose, I've made a 'toile' of sorts, using Mellow Moss ink and another flower from the set.


The inside features a flower and a sentiment from Birthday Greetings, another June release.


See this sweet little stamp?  It's free with orders over $75.  Free is always good!

The design team has so much crafty goodness to share with you.  Please go visit them, too --




Don't forget that this is the last day you can get free shipping on any purchase in the store, too.  The code is freeshipping.  It's also the last day to put your name in for BLOG CANDY - head over to Joanna's blog for the details.

Thanks so much for coming by....I love when you visit!
