At our South Pacific Convention back in May I had a play with this set ‘Bountiful Border’ in our Product Playground Area. Now I will say I think this set can get overlooked in the Catalogue (p120 $30). I think it is a bit hard to work out all the parts of the stamps. I had a play and stamped the images and brought the piece home – and then it sat on my table. I finally put it together last week and thought I would show you.
I first stamped the stem in Mossy Meadow and then inked up the petals in Blackberry Bliss. Being a photopolymer set you can easily see to line up the petals on to the stem. It might take a little playing around to get used to it. When inking the dots in the set I found it easier to leave the stamp on the desk face up and very lightly touch the stamp with the inkpad. I gently stamped it off first before stamping on the card. I repeated this a couple of times around the flower stem. I added some Burlap Ribbon and the Razzleberry Cotton Ribbon. It matches in quite well I think. The greeting is from ‘Wetlands’ and was punched out with the Large Oval punch. I added some gold sequins around the card to finish. I find glue dots the easiest way to adhere these to card.
So what do you think?? I am pleased with the final result.
Thanks for stopping by.
I am getting excited. I am going away for the weekend for some fun stamping time with my buddies. Stamping 24/7!!! Well maybe we have to have a “little” sleep and there will be lots of chatter. I can’t wait to show you some of the projects we made next week.
Have a great weekend.
