Awash With Flowers Set

Well hello there! I thought I'd pop on tonight and share a set of cards I made last week- my hubby was in need of a little gift to give one of the ladies he works with who is retiring soon. I hope she likes them! There are 5 altogether and I think they turned out pretty cute! Here they are:

All products by Stampin' Up! (except tulle)

Stamps: Awash with Flowers, Tiny Tags, Upsy Daisy
Ink: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizazz, Peach Parfait, Perfect Plum, Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Very Vanilla, Peach Parfait, Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze, Basic Black, Blushing Bride cardstock; First Edition DSP
Accessories: Scallop Edge punch, Jewelry Tag punch, basic pearls, linen thread, black tulle

So, I wanted the designs to be elegant yet whimsical and I hope I pulled that off! I had fun stamping out each flower and placing them on their panels. I learned with this set that the Awash with Flowers set works better with the Stampin' Markers then with the classic ink pads- you see every detail with the stamps and the markers make them look soft and smooth. I love the look! The one thing I wish I had in my stash was the Basic Black wide striped grosgrain ribbon... I think that would have really finished these off nicely! I made do with the tulle but I'm still imagining how those stripes would have popped off of the book print. :)

Hopefully this week I can make a cute little box to put these in and it'll be ready to send off to work with my hubby!

Thanks for popping in to look today!
