Using on trend colors from the Build-A-Flower: Japanese Mum Bundle for the following card.
Paired with Handpicked Bouquet Stamp & Die ,and several of the Japanese Mums, the gorgeous Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder adds a kiss of sparkle! All are layered on top of pattern paper.

Below is the layering guide for the new set:

With just a bit of masking, all four layers in the Build-A-Flower: Japanese Mum look fabulous in cheerful colors, for my third card; a simple one layer:)

Stamping the outline and solid images only of the Build-A-Flower: Japanese Mum give an altogether new look to the Bloom. Die cut masks add the crisp white outlines around each image. Giving it that RETRO vintage fabric look!

Absolutely fascinating seeing your process. As I watched the flower stamping "in reverse" I was dying to see what the difference would be -- and you showed it. Loved the extra steps to further enrich the three layer leaf step. Loved seeing the difference between raised and not raised dot layer. And seeing a different take on this fabulous mums set. Great and thank you!

Gorgeous blooms on these pretty cards, and I especially love the ombre background panel behind the doodled dots cover die and the gray leaves. The Handpicked Bouquet images looks awesome with this japanese mum too, love the corals on that one. The OLC is so cheery and happy, love the rainbow like color combo and the yellow mums card is so sunshiny and vibrant, LOVE!

I love the ombre you did under the coverplate on the first card. It's so fun. Though I think my favorite is the card with the golden peach embossing powder. That offsets the colors you chose and the images perfectly. It's the card I had in my mind when I first saw this set. Thanks for sharing with us!
