Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Botanicals Blog Hop Sunday, June 6th at 10pm CST

I am so glad you made it here. I love the Botanicals stamp set, because it is very multi-purpose. This is one you definitely want to add to your collection! This hop is a technique hop showcasing this beautiful stamp set. I have 3 samples for you today.

Then, for even more samples with the Botanicals stamp set, visit the StampTV gallery here: botanicals. To view more information about the free card kit that is included with the purchase of the Botanicals stamp set, click here

My first one uses the emboss resist technique and Basic Grey Capella paper and Gina K Ocean Mist Pure Luxury card stock.

For the next one, I sponged the background. Thanks to Geri for sharing this technique.

Last but not least, is a simple technique adding a button to a bow, and torn and sponged edges.

Tonight we are featuring the new Botanicals stamp set with a special technique themed blog hop event! Please visit
these designer's blogs for their project using a variety of techniques
all made with the Botanicals stamp set:

Thanks for stopping by. Now back to Jessica's blog.

It was hard to pick a favorite ... Last But Not Least wins for the subtle colors.

These are all really beautiful Karen! Love how the flower pops on your first card! Love the "sun effect" on your second card and such lovely soft colors on the third card!

Oh my goodness! These are wonderful, Karen! The dominance of the white is fascinating! The yellow background has me clamoring for the new-to-me technique! Awesome inspirations!
