My first project is showcasing Betsy Veldman’s new sets… Geode Layer Dies and Text and Texture Agate stamps. This particular card was so fun to put together because my sweet daughter LOVES collecting “special” rocks. We can’t take this girl anywhere without her finding something cool on the ground and her begging to take it home to wash it. She’s just the cutest.

My color inspiration came from this image I found on Pinterest…

I used little bits from the Shaker and Sprinkles kit to create the crystals in the center. 🙂

My next project is showing off the latest from Lizzie Jones… her monthly Glorious Globes April as well as Sentiment Staples Congratulations.

I took this set in a bit of a different direction this time by turning one of the circles into a floral focal point. It’s accents are created with Circle Scribbles dies and Doodlie Do coordinating dies.

Happy 11th anniversary festivities Papertrey lovers!! I am THRILLEDDDDDD to be helping showcase this years gorgeous anniversary set which is called Mixed Bouquet. I have been hinting on the forum that there is something special and unique with this years set and I finally get to tell you!! YAYYYY!!

So here is the scoop… Mixed Bouquet is a collaborative stamp set designed by SEVEN of our incredible product designers. Each lovely lady designed a set of florals and together they make up this beautiful bouquet. Here’s a break down of the set and who designed who. 😉

Now onto the project!

I created this flat, one layer card by using the water spritz technique. After inking up my stamps in one to two colors, I sprayed it once with water and then stamped it. This creates a subtle water color type of design without losing much definition.

The twine accent was created by making a mini braid. 🙂 I’m such a sucker for braids. haha
