Blossom Party





The card I have for you today is still 'simple' but just a little more time consuming. Pretty much all the work is done for you with a die cutting machine and it's just up to you to do the designing! I have been inspired by several crafters in the use of this die (particularly from America and Australia where they have had the die for longer than the UK) so cannot attribute credit to any one in particular but a quick Google search will also inspire you I am sure.
I have used the brand new Blossom Party die available in the Spring Mini and it is fast becoming my favourite! The die has 5 cuts on it and the variety of blossoms/flowers you can make with different combinations are endless.
I decided to use Pink Pirouette for the simple reason it happened to be on my desk, unopened waiting to be put away, and teamed it with Certainly Celery for the leaves which I cut out with the Little Leaves Sizzlits die. I used 4 different cuts on the die to make the flowers and, for this card, I layered and curled them to give some dimension but if you wanted a flatter card to post then you can simply miss out the curling. 
The Blossom Party die is available to buy for £16.50 and the Little Leaves die is £4.95 so if you have a die cutting machine then, for a little over £20, I would seriously recommend buying these. I'm sure you will get LOTS of use out of them - I know I will!
If you would like to order anything from the current Stampin'Up! catalogues then I would be happy to help - and don't forget if you spend £45 then you can choose an item from the SAB catalogue completely free (links to the current catalogues are on my side bar so you can browse at leisure)
