I have been inspired this week to use the Grateful Bunch stamp set and co-ordinating Blossom Bunch Punch which we used during our Team Training session last Saturday.  8 of my fellow Stampin Stylettes team members, including my upline Mikaela – craftyoinkpen.blogspot.com – and 2 of my downline, Jo and Lyn gathered to chat through business ideas and to do a little crafting including a couple of make and takes from Mikaela using this stamp set and punch. I have had the Grateful For You stamp set and the co-ordinating Blossom Bunch Punch for a while but haven’t really done much with it. Not sure why as it is gorgeous, especially the lacy border and the dotty leaf image.

Mikaela chose Tip Top Taupe, Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White as her colour scheme and we used some of the new Sweet Sugarplum ruched ribbon which is lovely; it ties beautifully. Loved both of these cards and was inspired to get my own set out and have a play.

I made the first card using Whisper White, Night of Navy and Pool Party, a classy colour palette if I do say so. The lacy border reminded me of bridal showers and veils, so it became a wedding card. I loved punching and stacking the flowers to create dimension on the card. I also couldn’t resist adding Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers for a bit of sparkle.

For my second card I used only the butterfly image from the stamp set and kept it simple using 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation Dapper Denim ink onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I added a strip of Silver Glimmer cardstock for a bit of bling. I was really happy with this card, simple but effective.

The last card I am showing today uses Whisper White, Tip Top Taupe and Cherry Cobbler. I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler washi and covered the flowers with Clear Wink of Stella. I know I am addicted to the stuff.  Pretty card I think.
