Blooming Thank You With Botanical Gardens Suite

By | April 11, 2016


One Stamp Set, Two Looks

Stamps and tools should offer lots of options when you invest in them. The Botanical Gardens suite meets the criteria.

Today’s project, a thank you card, again uses Botanical Blooms and the coordinating framelits. However, today I added two additional framelits to create an alternate look:  the single tea cup die from A Nice Cuppa  as a vase to arrange the flowers in and the Striped Scallop Thinlit to create a lattice background. Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey cardstock (retiring) make an encore appearance, but today’s design delivers an English cottage flavor instead of a tropical feel. Here’s the tropical feel.


I like both. I also like the fact that I finally used the Striped Scallop Thinlit purchased months ago. What held me back? I don’t know because I love it. The scallops work upside down, right-side up, side-to-side …

Just Stamp Tips

  • The Precision Base Plate and Big Shot Die Brush come to the rescue in cutting and releasing the scallop thinlit from the Whisper White cardstock.
  • The Wisteria Wonder and Rose Red blooms were die cut, daubered (is that a verb?) and shaped using a bone folder and stylus for dimension.
  • The thank you sentiment is stamped on the small heart print Wisteria Wonder DSP from the Have a Cuppa paper stack. I used VersaMark to ink up, then heat embossed using white powder.
  • Basic Pearls add the finishing touch.
