I was lucky enough to win one of those giveaways. It was supposed to be a stamp set from her second release, but luck would have it (at least for me) that her third release (that's released TODAY!) arrived on her doorstep first. So guess what I have had... one of those gorgeous new stamp sets to play with. I was lucky to get to play with Bloomin' Beautiful for the last couple of weeks. :)
My supplies used on these cards are:
*Kim Hughes/CHF Bloomin' Beautiful stamp set
*Kim Hughes/CHF Scripty Words stamp set
*Kim Hughes/CHF Vases stamp set
*Collage Press Citrus paper collection
For this card, I used one the stems to create the swirls. Tip, use a small circle punch in the corners to create the corner detail on these cards.
For this card, I stamped the big flowers using the "kiss" method with one of the little swirls. I then stamped one the tiny flowers in the centers and added a bit of marker detail around the edges.
This one stamp right here makes the price of this stamp set so worth it even if you never use one of the other stamps (although I can't imagine why you wouldn't use all of them...they are so cute!) Scallops are huge right now and this stamp (which I am assuming is some sort of sunflower) looks exactly like a scalloped edge medallion...perfect embellishment for any card!!!
Kim is also releasing 6 other stamp sets so go check them out. I also highly encourage you to stop by her blog and comment!! It's definitely worth the visit!!
oops, ETA: I forgot to mention that third card was created based on one of the Sept 07 cardmaps sketches.
