DOstamperSTARS Challenge #164: Botanical Builder Flowers

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a Home Sweet Home challenge. 

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC164 #dostamping #stampinup

For this week's photo inspiration, there are lots of inspiration to choose from...color, the blanket, the yarn the lamp and more!  I focused on the flowers on the lamp and the color scheme.

Like I shared last week that I wasn't a fan of the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.  But now that I've been playing with them...oh my, I've lovin' them!   For this card, I started by cutting a set of flowers and leaves from Marina Mist, Soft Sky and Rose Red cardstock.  With only 3 passes through the Big Shot (with Precision Base Plate), I had tons of die cuts to play with.  TIP:  place all the dies on one sheet of cardstock for quick cutting!  Then just play!  I mixed and matched until I found the combos I liked.  Then used a little sponging to give them a some depth - Marina Mist for all the blue die cuts (use a light touch when sponging the Soft Sky die cuts).  White Perfect Accents complete the flowers!

At the last minute, I decided I wanted to give the leaf edgelit a try (it comes with the set).   I liked the way the Crumb Cake cardstock popped, when it was adhered to the Rose Red card base.  And lastly - the greeting is from the new Birthday Blooms stamp set.

If it wasn't for today's photo inspiration, I never would have selected this color combo. leaves?  But I think it works.  Definitely took me outside my comfort zone.  And sometimes, that's a good thing. 

So, if you like flowers and/or if you like punch art...these Botanical Builder Framelits are for you!  Consider the Bundle that comes with the Framelits, matching Botanical Blooms stamp set and coordinating Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper - yes, save 15% on all three AND right now, choose a free Sale-a-Bration product too (bundle item #140819)!
