For this reveal I decided to showcase a sentiment from Bonnet Bouquet Stamp Set #838. Although the images in this set are gorgeous, I didn't use them. I wanted to find a way to empty my left overs basket and this sentiment was a perfect for that.

Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and it's heat embossed with Copper Dreams Embossing Powder. I used Spellbinders die from Radiant Rectangles set to cut it out. While die was still in place I added some Spun Sugar Distress ink around the sentiment. Layer underneath it is also cut with a die from same Spellbinders set. This time I added color to it with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Cornflower Blue).

I'll write more about the pink background in below, but here is the way I added some bling on top of it. I was afraid to try Nuvo Glimmer Paste because I heard they try fast... but I'm slow. So I hesitated long before ordering it. I'm glad I finally did it. Glimmer Paste is fantastic and even I was able to handle it :) So...  I added Moonstone Glimmer Paste through Dreamweaver Cherry Blossom Stencil and let it dry. Then I sprinkled Copper Flame Embossing Powder around the background and heated with a heat tool from underneath. 
Centers of cherry blossoms are made with Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel Drops and Cornflower Blue Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. Jewel Drops are really beautiful. I love the subtle color of them but for this card I wanted the color to be stronger. For that I added little drops of Mousse with waterbrush to a sheet of plastic and squeezed Jewel Drops on top. After they were dry I adhered them to the card.

Now we are getting to finds from my treasures basket: leaves and flowers are leftovers from other projects. I just added Nuvo Jewel Drops in center of flowers and covered it with Fuchsia Glass Glitter. I also put a bit of Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste to the petals. If I remember correctly, leaves are cut with Spellbinders Foliage die and they are colored with Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint Distress Ink. Looks like I have spritzed them with Perfect Pearl mist. Flowers are die cut with Spellbinders Rose Creations dies. They are colored with mix of Color Burst (Violet) and Nuance (Red) powders.

Now to the fun part. The background. Then I colored those purple flowers I used  paper towel to clean the mess. I loved the colors on it, so I kept it. I'm glad I did. I ripped the paper towel in pieces and adhered it with Brushable Glue to a piece of white cardstock. After it was dry I smudged some Cornflower Blue Nuvo Embellishment Mousse to the wrinkles.

This is all from me. The next stop on our blog hop is very talented DonnaHave fun!
