The Balmy Blue Bokeh Dots background stamp adds a dreamy backdrop for my flower filled vases. The vases were created in a snap by punching them out of the Wood Textures DSP. The tulips were stamped in Mango Melody ink and punched out. The other flowers were inked in Garden Green (stems) and Mango Melody and then cut out with my Paper Snips.
A few Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mono Glue, and Basic Pearls and the project was complete.
Since I had my ink out I jazzed up the envelope as well.
I hope you are having a great week.
Jennifer Maguire did a blog post using this stamp set and I immediately fell in love and had to have it. You can see Jennifer’s post here.
I used Stampin’ Up! colors Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral and Soft Seafoam as my color palette.
The stamp set is a triple stamp set and Altenew provides a nice brochure on how to use the stamps to create each flower. I only used the largest flower in the set. ♥
I also stamped the envelope flap. I inadvertently placed the second stamp on my block backwards so I got a solid image over the floral outline. I decided it provided creative flair and went with it. Hey no one else knows right? Except for all of you now. ; )
See you soon.
Can’t get your stamping mojo going? Then open a Stampin’ Up! catalog and CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) away, that always gets my creativity going. My card was CASE’d from page 158 of the Annual Catalog, photo below.
I used the Tropical Chic DSP as the backdrop for my card. Then layered Blushing Bride and Whisper White card stock. The flower petals were stamped in Blushing Bride and the leaves were stamped in Granny Smith Green. A piece of Crumb Cake card stock was perfect for the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!
I have been out of commission for a couple of weeks. However I am back in my craft room and enjoying some crafty time. This card uses the Concord and 9th Tulip Labels Die. The color palette is Blackberry Bliss, Soft Seafoam, and Granny Smith Green.
The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
There is a coordinating stencil called Retro Petals Turnabout Stencil that I used on the inside of the card and the envelope.
I hope you are enjoying your Labor Day Weekend.
