Using my new stuff!

Almost everything I used on this card is new! I just got the Build A Blossom stamp set and coordinating punch from the Occasions Mini. I already love it! TIP: To punch out multiples of the petal, stamp them in a row and punch them out left to right.
I got the color combination from a blog. It was so unusual that I had to try it: Peach Parfait, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and Whisper White. I stamped the petal in Riding Hood Red ink on Peach Parfait cardstock. After I punched out the petals, I stacked them together and punched a little hole at the end. A Peach Parfait glimmer brad holds them together, and I just fanned them out. The DSP is Greenhouse Gala, and the background is called Teahouse (new to me). I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White, punched it out with the word window and then sponged Baja Breeze around the edge to make it stand out against the background of the card.
Happy stamping!
