Botanical Monogram Decor

Hello! I hope you had a fab weekend. Mine was exceptionally perfect. Movies, cleaning, date night, creative time, mother-daughter shopping time, sunshine, just really perfect. Speaking of creative time, I am ECSTATIC to share today's project with you! I've been completely obsessed with palm leaf print lately (even have a palm leaf print phone case on order!), and when this idea popped into my head I literally rush ordered the Botanical Builder Framelits so I could bring it to life! So for today, I'm just going to skip all the mumbo jumbo yicketty yak, and get right to it! :D

EEEEKKKK!!! Is it not so pretty!?!? So here's the low down. I found this fun rustic, shiplap-ish, wood board at my local craft store, then just started cutting, cutting, cutting leaves from the Botanical Builder Framelits. I used Cucumber Crush, Garden Green, and Mint Macaron, with splashes of Blushing Bride & Gold. Seriously, the gold makes it right?! Maybe I need to switch the jute hanger (came with) to a gold ribbon! 8]] Whyy didn't I think of that before?!?! So let's take a closer look.

After I cut my leaves, I added some oomph to some of them with Versamark Ink and Clear & Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. I just wiped the ink pad right onto the leaves any which way, and added the embossing power, setting it with the Heat Tool. I arranged my leaves in a circle, attaching them to the board with Stampin' Dimensionals and Glue Dots. #forgetthegluegun Now, I want to point out on the Blushing Bride "leaves", I trimmed the cut image on the right side, since the framelit doesn't actually completely cut that image out. Once I glued on all of the leaves, I knew the center needed a little something more. So, I picked up the Larger Than Life Alphabet Stamp Set, and added a gold "D" to a circle cut from framelits. It is the perfect finishing touch!

Isn't that SO SO fun!?!? I had another project planned for today, but I just couldn't hold this one in! These great framelits also come with a coordinating stamp set, Botanical Blooms. Pair these two products together in a bundle, and you are set for a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! The sale ends in a mere 10 days, so don't wait too much longer!
