Hello! Annual Catalogue 2016 – 2017 Blog Hop Week 6

Welcome to the Hello! Annual Catalogue 2016-2017 Blog Hop! You’ll be hopping around some amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators blogs, each with an inspirational project, featuring new catalogue products.
Currently you’re visiting Tracy May from London, UK. Hello there! You can continue hopping by using the previous and next buttons at the end of this post. Now, let’s scroll down to see what I’ve been making.
I really liked the Mixed Borders Stamp set when I saw it in the new catalogue. I think my original intention was to use it to decorate my planner (which I have yet to do!). However, when I was looking at the stamps contained in the set I really liked the idea of creating my own floral background using the flower border stamp.
I only inked up the left hand part of the stamp with the 3 flowers, and stamped it over a panel of Whisper White. I didn’t want too much colour on the background, so I randomly chose flowers to colour using the Brights Stampin’ Write Markers. Originally I was going to use Basic Black as the border for the card front and the sentiment, but it looked too harsh, so I switched to Rich Razzleberry, which looks awesome with the new copper embossing powder and copper metallic thread.

I even used some of the copper embossing powder for the centres of the coloured flowers. I wish the picture showed how pretty it really is. I still need to work on my photography skills!
