It's the first of the month and that means it's Sr. Design Team challenge time at Papertrey Ink! For the next few months we will be focusing on some older sets. Oldies but GOODIES! Many of these early sets are so classic...they literally never go out of style!
This month we are focusing on Spiral Bouquet. I remember when this set was released. It was before I was on the design team and I remember being absolutely blown away by the things Nichole created with it on her blog! I especially remember a patterned paper she created....so pretty!
I decided to see what I could do with the set by mixing it with some of Papertrey's newer products. Many of the new products such as the dies, can add new life to your older sets! I experimented with some of the images in the set with the new dies. Here are a few of my findings...
The tiny leaf image combined with the Beautiful Blooms #1 die makes for a very interesting and delicate looking flower...
The flower images make a beautiful border when used with the scallop border dies...
The flowers are very simple to create. Start by diecuting two flowers, one large and one medium from cardstock.
Using the outline of the leaf image, go around the flower, stamping each petal. I used Raspberry Fizz ink.
Now go back with the solid leaf image and fill in, using Sweet Blush ink.
Now layer the flowers with foam tape and add a button to the center. You can bend the petals a little bit to add dimension.
And the scallop border is super simple too. Just stamp each scallop with a flower. You can add some pearls or gems when you're finished.
And here are a couple of cards using my flowers and scallops...
Now you'd better check out what the other girls have created with this classic favorite!
