Beautiful Bunch Monotone Card.

I am really enjoying the lovely variety in the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue that has just launched this month. 

One of the first sets that caught my eye was the Beautiful Bunch stamp set (p. 158 AC) that coordinates with the Fun Flower Punch (p. 219 AC) It has so many possibilities and I decided to use it for my card class tonight. We will make 3 very different cards using a combination of other Stampin' Up! stamp sets, but for this post I will start with the most simple card - a monotone in Lost Lagoon and Whisper White. 

I started this card with a Lost Lagoon card base but ended up with a Whisper White card base to help lighten and enclose the composition. I've added some of the gorgeous stamps from the Kinda Eclectic Set plus the Work of Art stamp set. It is fantastic how all these sets work so well together and with just a small amount of Pool Party Bakers Twine to soften the join between the flower and the banner, this was a quick and easy card to make. 

Here are some detail shots.

This shows the lovely collage effect that can be achieved by stamping different images on top of each other. You can also see the variety of tones that are achieved by stamping off the colour thus getting lighter images.

While the flower was punched out with the Fun Flower Punch, the centre of a second stamped image of the flower has been fussy cut and raised on a dimensional to give some dimension to the card.

This was a fun card to make and as I said, quite quick and easy.
I am entering this card in the Paper Players Challenge #205

I'll post the other cards in the next day or so,

Until Next time,
