I am SO excited to share a GORGEOUS set with you today...Forever In Bloom! This is a beautiful set illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line at Taylored Expressions. This set includes both open line images (which I used) and solid images. Also being released on Thursday are the coordinating Hydrangea Blooms Taylored Dies!
For my card I started by stamping the hydrangeas in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and cut them out using the Hydrangea Blooms Taylored Die. I colored them with Copic Markers and then added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles in the center of each flower.
I cut two circles of Choice Buttercream using Circle Nestabilities and on the smaller one, left the paper inside the die and sponged the inside with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I then popped up the hydrangea with Foam Tape and added in leaves that I colored and cut as well.
All of the patterned paper is Indie Chic Saffron from My Minds Eye and I created a layered flag element but cutting just the edges of the yellow pattern and Choice Buttercream panel with the Fly Your Flag 3 Taylored Die. Here is a closeup of the hydrangea. LOVE these flowers!!
I added a border with the Majestic Border Taylored Die and then added some Lace Ribbon, purple ribbon and twine. I stamped the sentiment, "Celebrate Today" onto a piece of Choice Buttercream Cardstock cut with the Fly Your Flag 2 Taylored Die. I tucked it under the ribbon and then added a heart cut with the Mini Tags Taylored Dies, tied with some twine and adorned with a rhinestone. I am loving how that came out. Here is a closeup:
