Sneak Peek: Double Bloom

Hi all,

Over at the InStyle Stamps blog, we are showcasing upcoming releases all week!  Today, we are showing you a brand new image called Double Bloom!  Initially, I thought it was a cute and whimsy image, but then I decided to make a card with a more elegant look.  Here it is:

My card base is made from some SU Bride DSP (it's a pretty thick paper - almost as thick as cardstock).  On top of that, is a striped layer of the same DSP with a Basic Black mat, and I punched the corners with a Ticket Corner punch.  Across that, I added a thick piece of Apricot grosgrain ribbon, and 2 thin pieces. 

I printed the Double Bloom image twice onto PTI White CS, and coloured them with Copics - I cut the base one out with Label 4 Nesties, and cut the blooms out of the second one and mounted it on the base.  I sponged some Apricot Appeal ink inside the Nesty.  I added some purple glitter to the flowers and 2 Martha Stewart pearls to each side. 

All the new images are being released this month at InStyle Stamps. Make sure you are stopping by the ISS blog to peek at all the new images Virginia will have!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
