FMS21 - Botanicals

Here is my submission for Freshly Made Sketches 21

For this card, I went back to my very first (and still my favorite) Stampin' Up! set.  I saw Botanicals used on a card in a rubber stamping magazine about 9 years ago.  The set wasn't named and the description was only "Stampin' Up! stamps" so that started a long search to find this set, which I HAD to have.   This set is singularly responsible for my long-term obsession with Stampin' Up! products, my over-flowing craft room and the eye rolls I get from my family whenever a brown box is delivered to my door LOL.


Products used:  (all Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted)

Stamps:  Botanicals
Cardstock:  Basic Gray; Going Gray; Always Artichoke; Riding Hood Red; More Mustard; Watercolor Paper; Vellum Cardstock
Ink:  Basic Gray;  Black Stazon; Always Artichoke; Riding Hood Red; More Mustard
Accessories:  Blender Pen; Brads; Oval Cutter; Sponges

Cheers
Karren
