Secret Garden - Stained Glass Technique

Hi all and happy Friday! 

When I first saw this stamp set, I told myself that I wasn't going to buy it - because seriously, how many flower sets does one person need?? This was, until Sally taught us this technique at team training, a while ago. I love the colours which are feminine and pretty and the technique is so simple but effective. Since I love colouring in and fussy cutting - there was no holding back. I knew that I had to have it! Oh, and there's actually a coordinating framelits die to go with the Secret Garden set, if you don't like cutting. 

Here's a close up of the flowers which are heat embossed before being coloured in:

And, here's the cute coordinating box which makes a lovely gift. This little combo is what we made at my classes last week.
