This lets people know that my post does contain product mentions. I always appreciate when other creators mention the products or brand they use, it helps me make a more informed decision. It can also make me aware of products I didn’t know are on the market.
I am working through the simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6×6 pad like a kid at christmas with a new toy. I am loving for the cards and projects I am making for teacher appreciatation.
Today’s card used about 5 different pattern papers but some were scraps from yesterday’s card. here is the link: https://themorningscrapper.com/2019/05/05/garden-theme-teacher-appreciation-card/ I love all these patterns, they all work perfectly together, one of the reasons Simple Stories is one of my favorite manufactureres.
I used the large floral design and cut out the beautiful big flowers that remind me of peonies. they looked lonely so I cut a few smaller flowers and tucked them around them.
Then to highlight as well as pull all the colors together I built it on the wood and flowers paper, adding the blue strip and a layer of pink. I really liked the base pattern with the muted gold tones. I felt it picked up the little flowers in the pattern as well as the suble shading in the large yellow flower.
Then I added my stamped sentiment from the Stamps of Life set I just received as part of their Die Hard club. The stamp2garden set is cute and it looks like you can get a second set with paterns for some of the stamps. I will add a link in the supply list.
I also wanted to add this Vintage Bliss paper pad was part of a warehouse box I purchased last June from Simple Stories. This is why I purchase them, I would have never given this a look but so glad I received it!
