GRATEFUL BUNCH

I wasn't fond of the "Grateful Bunch" stamp set when I first laid eyes on it. The set comes in a bundle with the Blossom Bunch punch and I really wanted that punch.  Since I could save 15% by purchasing the bundle, I thought I'd give it a try. Sometimes stamps fool you until you make a card with them. Hard to believe that this may end up becoming one of my favorite stamp sets.


I chose the colors of Lost Lagoon, Basic Gray, and Whisper White. I love pairing Basic Gray with silver (either glittered or metallic). I added the small metallic doily instead of the large, so not to take away from the beautiful flowers. All stamping was done with Basic Gray ink; both on the white and on the Lost Lagoon for the flowers. The flowers were punched out using the Blossom Bunch punch. See my supply list below. The Happy Birthday and Dear Friend sentiments are from the "Birthday Blooms" and "Circle of Spring" stamp sets.

Here's a close up of the faux stitched leaves and flowers:



This card is a lot easier than it looks - give it a try!

Happy Stamping,
