Raspberry blooms

Happy Saturday everyone! I'm snuggled in front of a roaring log fire as a write this, looking out to a picture postcard winter white garden. Yesterday we had the heaviest snowfall I can remember since living in the West Country - I know it's been disruptive but I can't help but love it.

Remember those stunning Raspberry Fizz Papertrey papers? I have been totally addicted to them - it is THE most uplifting colour.



Papers and cardstock are Raspberry Fizz, while the stamps are Stampin Up's Botanical Blooms from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue - I used the single outline flower and masked it so they overlap slightly. I then coloured them with Copic markers.

The circle semtiment is from Stampin Up's Circle of Friendship set, mounted on circles punched out with SU circle punches.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Recipe:

Stamps - Botanical Blooms/Circle of Friendship (SU)
Ink - Memento black
Card/Paper - Raspberry Fizz c/s and papers (Papertrey Ink)/ Whisper White (SU)/black (SU)
Other - Raspberry Fizz ribbon/Copic markers/Spellbinders dies/circle punches
