Garden bliss!

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to share a mini garden book that I put together using My Favorite Things flower stamp, stencil, and die cut combo. Wow, LOVE this trio combo together. This is the first time I have ever seen such a combo and mixed them together and I am really loving it! For the stencil, I used spray ink on the flower and modeling paste on the stem, which I colored. For the stamp, I inked it with a stamp pad and then for the die cuts, I cut them out, crinkled them and then sewed them on. I thought this book would be a perfect way to keep my garden pictures and notes together. I'm thinking that the pages would look awesome if I followed the theme of the stamps, stencils, and die cutting throughout the book.....maybe with some water coloring as well!

Here is a close-up of the stencil flower:

Love the raised look of the modeling paste with the inked flower and sewn on flower. I think it makes it look realistic, more 3d, if you will. Here is the awesome stencil that I used:

The next close-up shows the die cut flower, stem, and leaves:
Here's the  fabulous  die cut that I used:

And here is a close-up of the inked rose:

Love the inked rose, and so easy to stamp whatever it is that you're making!
Here's the stamp set....a real beauty!
