February Stamp of the Month - Layout in Bloom

I admit it, I love fussy cutting and creating intricate scenes from stamped images. I know it takes a lot of time, but what can I say - I love details. Fortunately for those of you who come to my workshops, I do not make you do this. However, when it comes to my blog, all is fair game. :) 

My best friend's little girl - what a lovely way to show how much 
she's grown these past years. And what a cutie!

When I saw February's Stamp of the Month - A Happy Hello - I knew I was going to make a garden. There were just too many fun flower images, and I couldn't pass this up. I started by stamping my stem and leaf bases with Topiary ink. And then, I went crazy with flowers. 


I'll admit, many of these shapes were punched with a circle punch. But I still got my fussy cutting fix with some of the flowers (especially those that you can see are bent inward to create dimension). I finished my garden with a mix of Flamingo Dots and Aqua Dots. 

If if you're not a fussy cutting diva, you can still create fun garden scenes with this stamp set - the flowers and circles can be stamped inside each other, and don't forget those circle punches!

This is an adorable layout! I love the idea of the garden and showing her growth throughout the years. Also, that little girl is simply beautiful ;-).

Love it -- Love this stamp set, but especially like what you did with it on this page. I hadn't thought of using the dots with this stamp set - great idea! Will have to remember that!
