More fun with Mixed Bunch


Had a lovely play with Mixed Bunch and the co-ordinating Blossom punch yesterday. They really are great fun, and the flowers look lovely when they’re stamped and punched out. I made six cards, every single one CASEd, adapted and - in this case - simplified from somewhere on the web. Here’s the first, adapted from a card by US demonstrator Sandi Maciver.

All my cards used the colours of Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper as I had a small amount left which I thought I’d try to use up. But you know how it is with DSP, it’s almost impossible to use up – I still have quite a bit!

I suppose it doesn’t help that I was being economical with this one and the flower embellishment is punched out of the background piece, with the hole hidden by the Very Vanilla cardstock.

Stamps: Mixed Bunch, Curly Cute
Cardstock: Marina Mist, Very Vanilla
Paper: Beau Chateau
Ink: Marina NMist
Accessories: 1” circle punch, ¾” circle punch, Very Vanilla brad (Neutrals), Boho Blossoms Punch, Blossom Punch

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
