Today I have a card featuring the new Botanicals 3 stamp set! I have to tell you a little funny thing. When Kim sent out the new releases this month,I got an email from her saying "I have a new stamp set with your name all over it!" And she was SO right! I LOVE this new set!! It is SO "Kay" :)


To make this card, I started with a white piece of card stock and I kind of envisioned where my banner with the sentiment was going to go.  I then stamped all the leaves and small flowers along my imaginary line. I just randomly stamped stuff, filling in the small spaces last with some of the smaller stamps. I then mounted this piece onto a top folded card base with foam tape. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Sentiment Sampler on a piece of white card stock and cut it out to fit across my card. I mounted that with foam tape. Next I stamped some flowers from Reflections stamp set and cut them out with the matching dies. I adhered those with foam tape. 


Paper Smooches Products used:

Botanicals 3 ( coming May 31st at 8:00pm pacific time)

If you're following along with the hop, your next stop will be Kristina Werner!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

Kay :)
