Joyful Bouquets

 I treated myself to some new goodies recently. Today's cards show the Joyful Bouquet washi and matching dies that I have been waiting to get.  I love this washi tape!  It was very easy to transfer to some white cardstock, using my stencil pal, and then use the matching die to cut out all the pieces at one time.  Please excuse the wonky shapes on today's cards - I had to tilt them to show you the gorgeous gold highlights.

supplies: white, Cotton Candy, and gold metallic kraft cardstock, Pink Fresh Studio Joyful Bouquet Washi and matching dieStitched Scallop Rectangle dies, The Greetery Love die, adhesive foam to lift central rectangle and bouquet

This Cotton Candy card is the perfect backdrop for the bouquet.  The scalloped stitched framing makes this card definitely feminine, and the beautiful font of the sentiment only adds to that.

Next up is a card that uses the tiny bouquets that are included in the tape.

supplies: white and Cotton Candy cardstock, Pink Fresh Studio Joyful Bouquet washi and matching dies, MFT Sending You Hugs die, adhesive foam

On this one I used the negative die-cut popped up above the card base, with several small bouquets underneath the "hugs" and another on top of the card.  The lovely gold is so appealing!  

And 1 more, mixed with a new cover die.  The sentiment dies are a part of that set.

supplies: white and metallic gold cardstock, watercolor dp from Lawn Fawn, Ink to Paper Dainty Deliveries border and sentiment dies, Pink Fresh Studio Joyful Bouquet washi tape and matching diestencil pal, gold thread and gem

This may be too busy for some people, but I really like this new border die also, for its daintiness.  Because of the gold in the bouquet, I added a gold sentiment and a little bow made of gold thread, secured with a gold gem.  I chose the watercolor background because of the single purple flower in the bouquet, but so many colors will work with this washi.  There are 10 yards on the roll, so this will be perfect for last-minute cards I need in a hurry. 

Thanks for your visit today!

I adore your cards, and love the colors in this washi WAY more than the one I bought! Isn't that the way it goes?
Thanks for finding the perfect way to show off that gold, Lin!
