I have layered some of the 6″ x 6″ papers from Paper Pad behind the photo and similarly to Karen, I also cut out the floral strip from the “Maple” paper. And be still my furiously beating heart (LOL), also discovered some wonderful flocked floral paper in the 6″ Paper Pad. Knowing my fetish for all things cutting – of course, I had to cut them out. I have layered them and then finished off the arrangement with the flower accent from the chipboard element pack
I have used the Kaisercraft ‘ Cream’ Alpha stickers and have altered them to coordinate. To create a similar effect, start by stamping over them with orange ink and the ‘script’ stamp from the Lush Clear Stamps set. While the ink is wet sprinkle with clear embossing powder, skake off excess and heat set. Ink the edges of the letters with brown and black ink.
Still talking about the Lush stamps – I have also created a stamped photo edge accent by stamping the floral corner stamp form the Lush Stamp Set onto patterned paper and then cutting around the image.
The gorgeous tonings of the Lush collection also inspired my Inspiration ‘Miracle’ Canvas. The ‘natural’ colouring of the recently released bird cage and bird suited the colours beautifully

Vicki says “the lush collection has some gorgeous unique tonings which I found perfect for a girly layout of my daughter Mikayla – but also found it so versatile that I used this collection for the funky wreath clock as well”
