Botanical Blooms, Builders & Banners


The Botanical Builder framelits are my favourite dies and you can use them to create the most stunning layered flowers.  But I’ve only recently started using the matching Botanical Bloom stamp set.  This set is equally as pretty, and I decided to use it to create a DSP background look for this card.

I wanted my card to be bright and colourful, so I inked my stamps in rich razzleberry, melon mambo, elegant eggplant, pumpkin pie, pacific point and daffodil delight with pear pizzazz and emerald envy leaves.  I stamped off each time to achieve a paler shade and then stamped the details of each flower and leaf in full strength colour for contrast.  My greeting banner was die cut using the Banners Framelits Dies and the sentiment stamped from the brilliant Balloon Builders stamp set and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

To embellish my card, I created my flower from rich razzleberry and melon mambo Cardstock using the Botanical Builder Framelit dies, and added a simple pearl to the centre before attaching my card front to a rich razzleberry mat and whisper white card base.
