Baby Blossoms - but not as you know it !

Hurrah, what a difference a day makes again !

The sunshine's back. I even had to rescue a couple of the Easter eggs today as the girls had stacked them up in the conservatory and the sun got to the top ones. Oh and yes, they had counted them lol ! Perhaps if it's sunny again tomorrow one could be beyond salvaging ;)

Yesterday I said how much I loved the new Baby Blossoms set but we are all different and I know it's not everyone's cup of tea being too pretty and vintage..... but not anymore !!!

Regular readers know how 'cruel' I am to my stamps and make them do things they weren't expecting to do, so I've tried to show that Baby Blossoms can be more funky ..............

I stamped the roses in Versamark then heat embossed with white powder. Ribbon and a bit of bling to glam it up lol !
Didn't throw away the piece of the Top Note die I cut off from the previous card ! Made the red flower from the scalloped circle punch and stamped with the stem stamp. I have other ideas for this useful little stamp, I'm thinking snowman arms lol ! Yes, I do need to get out more !!!

More stems and I like the background using just the stamp that creates the shadow on the roses.

Another entry for the sketch challenge at Simply Stampin - I am organised this week !

Looks and feels completely different from yesterday's projects ? Hopefully I have convinced a few of the ' non- believers' that they DO need this stamp set - if anyone would like me to order it for them please get in touch.

Remember stamps are as versatile as your imagination - let me know what you think x
