Pretty as a Positive Thoughts Collage

As last week was a Bank Holiday, I don’t have a Card & (Your) Cuppa project to share with you. Instead, I’ve dusted off a Stamp Set and Dies combo for today’s project.

It uses the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set and the matching Nature’s Thoughts Dies. I was searching through my Dies and decided to give them a bit of love, as they have been neglected with all of the new goodies.

My inspiration is the project on Page 77 of the Annual Catalogue and is this pretty collage.

A colour combination from the Subtles Collection of Blushing Bride, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz works well with Pale Papaya. I’m sure if Pale Papaya was one of the standard colours, it would be in with the Subtles.

The background piece is given texture using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

With the frame cut using the dies, I stamped and cut out the various pieces. Each is then stuck onto the Basic White piece.

Beauty of Friendship provides the sentiment. This sits on top of a swoosh of Pool Party Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.

Finally the butterflies, each with some Wink of Stella sparkle are added.

As you know, I’m not a fan of pink, but I’m really pleased with how this project has turned out.
