Wow Flowers & Micro Beads... Oh, and some Decor Elements!

OK, so one look in the Wow Flowers gallery on SCS and this card doesn't look so original. I guess we're all trying to use the new In Colors and since this set was available for preorder that narrows down the creative possibilities. Well trust me when I say I was going for original (like always) and didn't even view the gallery before I made this.

Anyway, I was going for basic and simple for a possible Make-n-Take at my Open House today and I think this fits the bill. Had to add a little bit of something to jazz it up so there are green micro beads in the center of the medallion that look surprisingly just like Kiwi Kiss! Woo Hoo- bonus!

Oh, I think I promised a peek at how I used the Decor Elements. My first use of these Decor Elements is with the Long-Stem Silhouette (the medium one I've used is 27 7/8" x 5 3/4") which matches the beautiful stamp set Stem Silhouettes which is only available until August 11th. This is a table in my foyer. My home decor is all about elements of nature so I immediately liked this Decor Element! See the little bird hook hanging there? I've had it for a few years and have never hung anything from it. Well, I have an idea using this coordinating stamp set which I'll try to get to one of these days!

In the mean time, next I will show my use of the Create Definition Decor Element, which I'll put in my kids' bathroom today. It may be hard to photograph, but I will try. The other Decor Element I bought will take me some time to use as I bought it for my mom. I have what I think is an awesome idea for a gift for her, but will need time (lots of time) to put it together (then I have to convince her to let me do it at her house!). That will be down the road. If you are at all excited about these Decor Elements, let me tell you the Phase 2 release will knock your socks off! I can't wait to see what else Stampin' Up! has in store for us with this awesome new creative outlet!

Thanks for stopping by!
