The Spot - #144 Designer's Choice

Sneak Peak

Welcome to The Spot, the first challenge of the year.
It is a FUN one today, giving us creative license to play with any products
that Stampin' Up! have in their current catalogues...
So The Spot #144 is Designer's Choice....

 So my new mantra of 2021 is to play with Stamp sets/Dies that haven't been inked up.
Blossoms in Bloom Bundle is a stamp/die set that I said I w0uld buy as soon as the
Annual catalogue launched last June....BUT I only just got it before Christmas.
Last night I inked it up, and diecut the large blossoms and started to play.

I also used quite a few BRAND NEW Products from the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalogue,
which launched today as well as Sale-a-bration promotion.
Stampin' Up! Gilded Leafing, Stampin' Up! Heat and Stick Powder
and Love you Always Foil Sheets.

This was my first play with any kind of Gilding Flakes, and all I can say I
struggled to get it to work and I didn't like that I had no control over this product.
TIP - Make sure you have a large dish and no wind to blow this product away.

I persevered until I was happy with the results of the gilding on the diecuts.
Once I had finished that I die cut some flowers from the Foil Sheets
and stuck them to the inside of the small blooms.

I diecut another one of the open large blossoms from Very Vanilla Cardstock
so that I could use as a mask to add some Blushing Bride Ink to my
background of Blushing Bride Cardstock with our BRAND NEW Blending Brushes...
I love this product, so glad that Stampin' Up! have them in Jan-Jun Mini Catty.
Love the subtly inked background...

I added the Very Vanilla/Gilded Diecuts to my background and
then I used one of the sentiments to a die cut from 
 another NEW products Messages Die.
Then I diecut another sentiment shape from the foil sheet to add behind
Happy Birthday from
Blossoms In Bloom Stamp set as an accent.

Pretty happy with my first play with this Blossoms In Bloom Stamp set
and Many Layered Blossoms Dies. As well as the result of the Gilding Flakes.

We would LOVE for you to JOIN US this week on this challenge..
