We in the UK have woken up to news that will either delight or devastate, depending on which way you voted in the European referendum. Whatever your thoughts on the outcome, the deed is now done. And while the future is uncertain, some things in life will not change. It will still rain on Bank Holidays (although the sun is shining for now), cats are still delightful (although come back tomorrow for a counter-argument) and stamping will still act as a great uniter of nations (no argument there).
So here’s some stamping to make your day brighter/even brighter* using a new stamp set, the name of which I cannot get to stick in my brain. Blooms & Wishes, that’s it. There are a few of these washy, painterly floral sets in the catalogue and it took me a while to choose between them. In the end I decided that this one would be the most useful to me and it turns out to be the most popular, among my stamping team at least.
I absolutely loved the colour combination on the samples in the catalogue (page 139), which probably influenced my decision somewhat. As you’ve probably guessed, I have now come round to Sweet Sugarplum, which is my favourite of the new In Colors. I decided to emulate the catalogue colour combo here, with a slight change of green (SU used Mint Macaron) and addition of Crumb Cake to dirty it up a bit. Hope you like it!
