I know I often say how amazing each release is, but this is truly spectacular! Not only fantastic stamp sets, but also Crisp Inks in new colors that I’m sure you’ll need in your collection 😉

My layout for today features two stamp sets and coordinating dies: Forever and Always, and Happy Bloom.

I absolutely love the gorgeous clusters in these stamp sets. I heat-embossed the images on 110lbs white card stock using Altenew Pure White embossing powder, and colored them with watercolor brush pens.

The patterned paper I used to back the word cut file is from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection. I tried to match and coordinate the colors of the flowers with this striped paper. Before adhering the word “together” down, I placed one of the floral clusters and some leaves behind it, while the other clusters and the individual flowers and leaves were scattered on top.

Not much else was added to this page. Just a couple of sweet sentiments in the shape of a banner from the Forever and Always stamp set, and enamel dots in coordinating colors.

Don’t forget to comment along for a chance to win. Your next stop is the super talented Yana Smakula.

Have a lovely day!
