Here is card that features another great new stamp set, Floral Essence. It has some pretty flower images, some lovely sentiments and a coordinating punch. It is a perfect place to start if you are new to stamping, as you get both images and sentiments in one set. There is also some gorgeous Designer Series Paper that goes with this suite that I featured in a couple of sneak peaks. You can see them here and here. I love this suite of products and now I will use it a lot, so watch for upcoming posts featuring more of it.
The flower on this card was stamped with the stamp that has the coordinating punch. I stamped it in Whisper White Craft ink on Blackberry Bliss card stock, and Blackberry Bliss ink on Highland Heather card stock. After I punch out the images, I layered them together, and added a Gold Faceted Gem to create my flower. The stem and leaves are stamped in Garden Green on the Whisper White backdrop. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in Garden Green, and layered on card stock cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies. I embossed my Garden Green backdrop with the Layered Leaves 3D embossing folder, and used a Blackberry Bliss card base.
