Another Artisan Creation

I am in love! I know you are wondering what I am in love with ~  the Artisan Embellishment Kit and the Primrose Petals Core'dination card stock - it's hard to pick what I like most!

Here is my latest creation with both of these products and a few others
I love the effect of the Honeycomb textured impressions embossing folder on Core'dinations card stock. I have paired it here with the Tea for Two DSP and Basic Gray/Basic Black Two Tone Ribbon.
The image was stamped in Primrose Petals and Old Olive ink using the flower from the Oh, Hello stamp set from the Making a Difference Mini catalogue. I then cut the image out with the Ovals Framelit Dies. I also stamped the chevron arrows in Primrose Petals and Basic Gray on First Edition Specialty DSP and fussy cut them out. I love the paisley images and how they all complement the DSP and colour scheme.

Next I cut two flowers from the Vanilla Flower Trim that is just divine and so versatile to use. I added a tiny rose from the Artisan Embellishment Kit to balance the arrangement. Those little roses are to die for they are soooooo quaint!
The Designer Builder Brad adds a little bit of bling to the project. I punched a 1/2' circle of Tea for Two DSP and tied a matching piece of Bakers Twine (in Lucky Limeade) on the edge to marry in the colour scheme.

The sentiment is from the Made for You stamp set and I thought that the pennant shape would fit the card well.

I should mention that if you would like to purchase anything from the Making a Difference Mini you can email or phone me with orders. Obviously this offer is only open to Australian residents.  We have less than a month left of the Sale-a-Bration promotion and there are so many goodies to choose from this year.  I would love to help you select an item that suits your crafting needs.

Ciao for now
