Before we get to today’s card, I have a question for you.  Have you checked out the prices on the January – June Mini Catalog Sale list?  They are awesome!!  I have a link further down in the post for you to click on.  That will take you to a 4 page PDF of the sale items.  A reminder that it may in some cases be cheaper to buy the die and stamp set individually rather than as a bundle.  Some of the dies are discounted 50% on their own, but the bundle price is still the catalog price.  So double check before you choose!

Today’s card is one of the retiring items.  It is the Wrapped Bouquet Bundle.  I love this Bundle.  It is one I have used several times. And with many different colors.  Today’s colors are more subdued, but with a bit of sparkle.

 

 

Colors

I chose to pair one of my favorites, Highland Heather, with the Basic Gray.  I chose the gray because of the newsprint the flowers are wrapped in.  The DSP is the Naturals Designer Series paper and it is one of the Basic Gray designs.  There are a couple of different designs in each color.  You can also get a pack in each of the color families, as well as the In Color families.

The flower image is stamped using Smoky Slate.  I then colored the images, with the exception of the newsprint, with Stampin’ Blends.  Highland Heather for the flowers and Mossy Meadow for the stems and leaves.  The flowers also each got a touch of Wink of Stella to give them some sparkle.  Instead of trying to add color to the centers of the flowers with Stampin’ Blends, I chose to go with some Bling.  I used the Champagne Rhinestones, which have a bit of a gold / yellow tint.

Finishing Touches

Did you notice the sparkle of the ribbon?  This is the new Highland Heather Grosgrain Ribbon.  It looks as if it has some silver mixed in.  Whatever the case is, I love it!  It seems to add some elegance to the focal layer.

The sentiment is from the stamp set also.  The “Love You Bunches” just seems like a southern saying to me.  I die cut it using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  And added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it some depth.  I forgot to mention that the Basic Gray layer is also cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
