We are using the gorgeous Beautiful Bouquet for classes this month and I have been using the set over the last few days to make some samples for my inspiration table. I love the versatility of the set, it is so easy to make a clean and simple card or you can go mad with layering for a totally different look. I also love the many sentiments this set comes with; the font is so dainty, just beautiful.

I wanted to make a card featuring a floral spray rather than a bouquet and with a very simple colour palette. My starting point was the 2 circles which were left over from another project, one in Champagne Foil and the other from the Wood Textures dsp!

I inked up the flower stamp with Night of Navy ink and stamped it 4 times onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock without re-inking. I love that we can get 3 or 4 different shades of the same colour from an ink pad. I did the same thing with Bermuda Bay ink and then die cut all of the flowers using the co-ordinating Beautiful Bunch dies. I love Lemon Lime Twist with both Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy and chose to die cut the leaves from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. I added a ½” strip of Night of Navy cardstock and a ⅜” strip of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to ground the circles which I had adhered slightly off centre.

I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto a Thick Whisper White cardstock and added the leaves and flowers using a combination of Tombow Liquid Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wanted to add a little more shimmer to the card but could find something I liked; then I spotted some Champagne Foil scraps and used these to punch out small ⅛” and ¼” circles using the Hand Held Circle punches. I glued these down with Tombow.
