CSS Release in Review Day 2-Fun with Flowers

Release in Review week continues today at Clear and Simple Stamps with a look at the flower themed items from our CSS Favorites. I used the new Build-a-Flower stamp set along with the coordinating Build-a-Flower dies to make this spring gift set.

The card uses a classic spring color combination—pink and soft green. I used the large flower as the focal image. It’s stamped on the die cut piece in pink ink. I added a die cut pink button, threaded with CSS’s new twine, and a pair of polka dotted leaves, to fill out the flower. The flower is set on a Leek-ed to the Press card base with a strip of dotted pink patterned paper edged with a piece of white doily cut with CSS’s Doily die. I stamped the “happy thoughts coming your way” sentiment on the patterned paper in black ink.

To go with the card, I dressed up a small metal pail filled with a pink flower. The rim of the pail is edged with some green and white gingham trim. I made a tag for the pail using most of the same elements as I used on the card, but on a smaller scale. The pieces are arranged on a white tag cut with the Tags 1 die. I trimmed it down to better fit the size of the pail.
