Stampin Up! Garden Wishes

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to my blog.

And welcome back to another Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. I hope you enjoy my project with this month's theme - Let Your Colours Shine.

Let your colours shine theme - to me, that says foil, and gold foil at that! Just to match the gorgeous Expressions In Ink DSP.

If you are smarter than me, you would have adhered some Adhesive Sheets to the back of the gold foil so you can just place the die cut pieces directly to the DSP layer. However, if you are like me and forgot (sigh), don't panic! All I did was place some liquid glue at the top of the stem for the left flower and in the centre for the right flower. The stems at this stage are free (not glued down). After stamping the other flower images in Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green inks and cut them out, I added a dimensional behind the flower only and adhered them to the DSP as well. Now, I grabbed my liquid glue again and placed some on the DSP where ALL the stems meet up but don't go beyond the stamped image leaves. Press the stems down and hold for a few seconds to secure them.

I couldn't resist and added some wink of stella to the stamped images, along with a few gilded gems. The sentiment is from the same stamp set - Garden Wishes Bundle stamped in Shaded Spruce ink on basic white.
