How to Use the Flowers of Beauty Bundle

 Have you ever opened up a new stamp and die bundle, and felt excited as you thought of all the things you could make with it? Then sometimes reality sets in as you are only to be perplexed as you begin to realize you have no idea what this die is for, or how to use that stamp? This bundle really had me stumped! You can tells there is some two step stamping in this set but it  a bimight be a bit of a challenge to determine what stamps and dies go together and how. I have two samples and some explanations for you today. I used the entire Unbounded Beauty Suite. The  Flowers of Beauty bundle, the Unbounded Love bundle, the DSP,  and In Color Glimmer paper. I used In Color Shimmer Gems instead of the In Color Resin Dots because .... who doesn't like a little bling? 

The background stamp in Bubble Bath ink and the detail stamp in Petunia Pop ink.

The die does not cut all the little flowers in one cluster, but in 6 clusters so you can glue them where ever you like to create a floral stem.

This additional cluster pieces was stamped in the same colors as above

These dies are the coolest thing! They cut a bunch of flowers all at once!

After using an embossing tool to round and roll up the flower petals, I used the gems as the flower centers.

Adventureous Sky

 I just got this bundle in the mail, and it sure makes up quickly and easily! As part of coordinating suite of products, there are some embellishments called Industrial Trinkets. I did not get them, (yet anyway) because I still have a bunch of retired metal embellishments that I need to use up. Oh, and in the package of DSP, there are two sheets with cut apart rectangles and tags which are so fun!

Since this bundle has lots of dies and stamps, I made my usual guide for how to put the pieces together and use with stamps.The clouds are perfect for stamping sentiments on. I love the tow banners that can be used for sentiments too. They remind me of going to Myrtle Beach as a college students. There were always so many of the tow banners to entertain us while tanning on the beach. Well, in my case, it was really burning! lol. My Irish skin burns so easily and trips to the beach were usually accompanied by copious amounts of Aloe Vera and Tylenol - foolish child that I was.
