My layout for today features the super pretty Ditsy Print Stamp Set and coordinating die:

I started by stamping lots of bouquets with the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks:

  • Flowers: Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, and Purple Wine.
  • Leaves: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen, and Sweet Leaf.

I love the dainty look of the little flowers, so I decided to keep the delicate and pretty motif going throughout the page.

I chose a white background and tried different arrangements before settling on a circular shape. To bring in an extra element of interest and fill the empty spot in the middle, I opted to use the Mandala Die to cut a coordinating patterned paper from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection. I backed the whole die-cut with vellum and used the paper-piecing technique to fill some of the spots with a light yellow paper from the Reflection Collection.

For the photo, I just matted it with patterned paper and adhered it down with foam adhesive to give it dimension. The flower cluster on the left side is a sticker from the Our Family Collection, while for the title I used a sentiment from the Super Script Scrapbook Stamp Set, which was heat-embossed with Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.

To finish the layout, I created a bow with the same yellow patterned paper I used for the Mandala die-cut and placed it in the top left corner of the picture. I also added lots of White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops all around the wreath. I know they are difficult to see in the pictures, but in real life you can really see the touch of shine they add.
