Botanical Blooms i think has to be one of my favourite floral themed stamp sets from Stampin' Up!
I love the way when you mix it with the matching 'botanical builder framelits' you can create amazing 3D projects with texture. Equally the stamp set on it's own can create beautiful images on the front of cards.
This is a simple project but really has a wow factor. I used the 'clear tiny treat boxes' (still available) and decorated it with flowers cut using the dies and big shot.
Choosing the colours 'Berry Burst' and 'Lemon Lime Twist' i wrapped a piece of DSP around the box and a strip of the silver sequins. These larger sequins are no longer available in this size but we do have some super cute mini sequins which would work just as well to recreate the same effect. Using double sided DSP is great as you get to see a hint of the other side through the clear box.
Using glue dots to attach the flowers and leaf i then added a basic pearl gem to the centre of the flowers for an extra special touch.
I love how these turned out and they are so quick and easy to make. I've popped in a votive candle for my gift but you could add sweeties / chocolates etc if you prefer.

I am the first to admit i have an issue hoarding crafting products, especially papers! When they come packaged and look so pretty it's hard to chop them up to use. I always end up with retired papers left over each time a new catalogue is released and they end up sitting in my paper store unused. So with this in mind i decided to start using some of them up and made a start on some Christmas cards. Santa's workshop was such a fun set of papers, especially if making cards for younger members of the family. I used a larger piece of dsp for the background but then also cut another strip with elves on to use as the main focus of the card. Mounted onto real red card and then some glimmer paper to cut the word 'Christmas' from adds a little bit of festive bling and sparkle. At least if i use up my old stash i have the perfect excuse to buy more of the new products :) If you would like to buy any current products please pop over to my online shop HERE
