Flower Fusion #10 and Think Big Favorites #10...

Hi all! Welcome to Day 3 of the Papertrey Ink countdown! I am helping out this month for the previews and get to show you what I made with the Flower Fusion #10 stamp set and the Think Big Favorites #10, both are new sets this month coming out on the 15th.

I couldn't resist using lots of bright, happy colors to cheer up the recipient! I stamped the flowers in multiple inks, then added the different centers and some Think Big sentiments. I didn't want the stem, so I masked off the long stem on the flower, and added some leaves here and there in Spring Moss ink. It's a really pretty green in real life! I couldn't get it to photograph that well today, but trust me, it's a gorgeous color. I used creme cardstock for the background.
Here I stamped the sentiment right over the flowers. It's fun to experiment with different colors/inks for these flowers!
Stamped Flower card set:
Stamps: Flower Fusion #10, Think Big Favorites #10
Ink: Pure Poppy, Spring Moss, Summer Sunshine, Raspberry Fizz, True Black, 
Hawaiian Shores, Berry Sorbet by PTI. Chewing Gum by Jenni Bowlin.
Paper: Harvest Gold and Hawaiian Shores cardstock by PTI
Dies: corner rounder
Other: PTI twine, machine stitching.

Next, I have a couple of cards utilizing the Flower Fusion #10 dies. 
I wanted to make a little "polaroid-looking" frame to house my popped-up flower, so I cut a rectangle from cardstock and then punched a square from the center. I know it's upside down. ha! Not sure why I did that... Anyway, I stamped the blue polkadots from the Flower Fusion #10 to decorate the frame.
I added the flower with a tiny clothespin to resemble a stem. (My girls told me I should have painted it green! Maybe I should have? Oh, I get all kinds of feedback. lol)
Feel Better Soon card:
Stamps: Flower Fusion #10, Think Big Favorites #10
Ink: Pure Poppy,  Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, Dark Chocolate, Spring Moss
Paper: Aqua Mist cardstock by PTI, white cardstock, 
(stripe) Nantucket by Pink Paisee
Dies: Flower Fusion dies, square punch
Other: ribbon by May Arts, Melissa Frances pearl, crafty supply mini clothespin.

On this one, I used a glassine bag by Papertrey Ink as a card.  Pure Poppy ink is used for the Think Big sentiment here. Inside the bag, I added white cardstock also stamped with circles...this is where you can write the note for the recipient!
I punched out the leaves and trimmed them down, then added a couple of layers of them.
See the little clouds? I made these very simply with the flower die! I punched out the flower, stamped it in blue ink and cut the top of the flower off to make a cloud.
Wishing You Brighter Days pocket card:

And one more. This one utilizes a tri-fold card from Papertrey Ink, some new ribbon called Soft Stone Swiss Dot 5/8",  and new paper by Papertrey Ink called Peace Be Still (behind the heart).
