As for me, I just received my order of Best of Flowers stamp set. This is part of Stampin' Up!'s Best of 25 Years Stamps series. I thought what better way to showcase spring and renewal/rebirth than flowers and this particular stamp set. Because what is old is now new again!
This first one uses the image that's a spray of roses. I heard this is from a retired set called, Gentler Times. I paired this stamp with one of my new favorite DSPs, Tea for Two, and the new stamp set and punch from Sale-a-Bration. To show you how much love I've got for my readers and for this blog hop, I hand fussycut all 3 stamped images. Can you believe that? Imagine the time that took. LOL.
This next project uses another stamp out of the Best of Flowers set. The image is from retired Upsy Daisy. In full disclosure, the new stamp is sized much smaller than the original.
In this card, I paired the new smaller Upsy Daisy with the original Upsy Daisy. This layout is based on a fellow demonstrator friend's recommendation. I think this card turned out really cute. I debated whether to show you a retired stamp. But since the theme is renewal and rebirth, I figured it's fitting. Plus, I hope many of you already have the original set, and I've inspired you to bring it out and play with it once more.
That's it from here. Onward to sweet Nancy's blog.
