I'm so enjoying the sweet little Thoughtful Blooms set I got for free during Sale-A-Bration (get yours free when you spend $50 or more at http://bit.ly/shopwithLyssa) and the matching Small Bloom Punch (free with $100 order.) It's just a simple, unsassuming set, but you can do so much with it!
Have you tried making a wreath from any leaf or sprig stamp yet? Here's the instructions to show you how incredibly simple it is.In this example, I stamped the four leaves in the North-South-East-West positions, then four more in between them. There were still gaps, so I stamped lighter colored leaves between each of those. Easy!
I stamped my wreath using Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam, then added Gorgeous Grape tiny flowers and punches in Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. The card base is Purple Posy. Such a beautiful color scheme!
TIP: Just because a stamp or element is small doesn't mean it can't be a focal point! Grouping small things together en masse gives them presence they could never have spread out. The card uses nine small flowers arranged in a grid and a short sentiment stamped four times. I bet you have some small stamps you like that you can use to try this technique tonight!
