TIP: Before starting to put together on the cards. first run multiple dies through the Big Shot at once to save time. Just lay the small pieces of cardstock with the dies on top of the cutting plate and run all of them through at once. Do it again with other colors as desired. Be sure to put all the pieces in a small container so they don't get lost in the shuffle.
I had a pleasant day here in the tower with the sun streaming through the windows and all these beautiful Botanical Blooms to play with!

The metallic gold-lined dsp made the perfect backdrop for the two banners, two medium sized hearts, three smaller hearts and the sequins. There are three more hearts inside with "Celebrate" from the SU set, "Send a Celebration." How appropriate!

TIP: To keep the inner parts of the petals from flattening in the mail, I prop them up with tiny pieces of clear foam tape.

I'm really enjoying these Botanical stamps and papers, especially in the middle of winter. This first one looks bright and cheery, and I may just use it as an unconventional Valentine card...or maybe an encouragement card. The raised petals are held up with clear foam tape.
I hope the recipients of these cards find them as cheerful as I have while making them!

I saw this card on a Frenchie Stamps video and couldn't wait to try it, so I asked my demonstrator, Cyndy, it she would teach us how at our next Technique class. That was last week, so as soon as I got out my new supplies, I came up with this one. I can't wait to make some more.
The "My friend" stamp is from the Sale-a-bration stamp set "Hello" (free with a $50 order). I just love the tropical leaves and flowers, and it will go with a stamp I have that says, "Always maintain a kind of summer, even in the middle of winter." Good advice, and this stamp set will help me do that!
