For Joan's super-fun TLC528 Cluster Stamping challenge. It's a gorgeous day here; we went for a walk in nearby woods this morning, and I'm busy varnishing a window, but while one coat dries I have time to sneak upstairs .
I used a blossoms die for my mask, and since I wanted to emboss the flowers before stamping the leaves, I used a pink from a ColorBox spectrum pad. Embossed the flowers, carefully slid it back into place under my mask, stamped the leaves. Removed the mask, stamped the sentiment with Ranger's Archival. Returned the mask, put the die in place, taped it with low-tack tape and removed the mask, then embossed the blossom frame.
When I was adding the glitter trail for the ladubird I wondered about outlining the embossed frame, but decided against it. Instead I added Liquid Pearls to all the flower centres. Card is layered up on black and pink, and that's it done.

Gorgeous! Love the look you created by embossing the clustered flowers, it adds brightness and depth. And positioning the huge sentiment to overlap the cluster is a lovely design element. Nicely done! TFS

Your floral panel, using the blossom die as a mask, really turned out beautifully, Sabrina. You are multi-tasking today with hiking, crafting and varnishing...and the sun hasn't set!! TFS how you did the flowers and leaves. A beautiful font for your quote from Scriptures.

Sabrina, this is just so soft and sweet. It jumped right out at me and straight into my favorites! Beautiful pinks and greens, and the shape you used to make your stencil is perfect for the floral theme.
