One of the things I love most about this new set, aside from the fact that it is beautiful, is there is a single bloom image that you can stamp several times, trim and pop up on little pieces of Dimensionals. This really gives the flowers a realistic look! You can see I also matted and scalloped the edges of the inside matting. I also stamped a matching flower image lightly by stamping off once first.
I am smitten with this new Hostess Set. The new catalog is SO GREAT! I will definitely be using a lot of new goodies in the very near future. I am a little behind on posting on my blog as well as cruising my Blog Groups. Hang with me everyone. I will be catching up some tonight, some tomorrow. We had a water leak in our freezer, and our hardwood floors are ruined in the kitchen and breakfast nook. The floors in those two rooms and the dining room will have to be cut up, not all of it, just a big portion. New floor has to be laid, all 3 rooms, plus the foyer sanded, stained and resealed with all new moldings installed. We have had LOUD, HUGE drying equipment in the kitchen for over a week. It was 100 degrees here in NC today, and our house would not cool lower than 87!!! The drying equipment shoots out HOT air, and our AC hasn't shut off in a week, not once! So, on the home front, things have gotten hectic and I had to set crafting aside for the last week. I am glad to be back, and hopefully will have a good report on my floors soon! A little more drying, and they are ready to be replaced!
