A Pocket Full of Posies!

Hello, it's Thursday again and that means another project using stamps from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. This week I made this collage piece with the Jean Pocket stamp from the Patriotic set. I started by coloring the pocket and adding brads in the corners and adhered it to a leftover piece of bo bunny paper (that I just love). Then I began adding different Prima flowers and leaves with assorted buttons and brads for the centers. I stamped random butterflies around the page and added a bit of stickles to them for some bling. I printed the sentiment on my computer and inked it with spiced marmalade distress ink. Lastly, I added a musical note brad, inked the edges of the paper and done! You can buy this stamp set and lots more fabulous sets at Lindsay's Mygrafico shop. Hop on over to Lindsay's blog and grab her freebie of the week and then see what the DT has to inspire you with as well. Have a great Thursday!!!

Fabulous idea!! I love it!! Of course, I had to smack my forehead on this one and ask why I never thought of that. Sometimes I just take things too much at face value.

Leanne said...

This is just adorable! You are so creative!! I never would have thought of doing the flowers in the pocket!! I feel a scraplift coming on!!

Tracey, this is awesome. Love the dimension that the Prima flowers added and love the random butterfly (stamped) background. It's gorgeous.
