I loved the colours of the photo inspiration – just so pretty! And of course, the floral bouquet was great inspiration. So – using the colours and the styling, I made this card using the Bloom & Grow stamp set.
I stamped my favourite large floral stamp from this set in Crumb Cake ink across the top of a Whisper White cardstock mat, and then again (upside down) underneath this. I knew I wanted to add a sentiment over the top, so I allowed enough space for this with a slight bit of overlap.
The flowers are coloured using Stampin’ Blends. Usually I’d use black Memento ink if I was colouring with Blends, but as all our classic Stampin’ Up! inks are water based, you can use any of these and then colour with Blends. How cool is that???
The Stampin’ Blends colours are Light Cajun Craze, Light Calypso Coral, Light & Dark Daffodil Delight, Dark Mango Melody, Light & Dark Granny Apple Green and Dark Mint Macaron.
I was so obsessed with the large floral images in this set that I had completely overlooked the small images that match! They are the sweetest and make for a great carry through to the middle.
The sentiment for this card comes from the Beautiful Day stamp set. White heat embossed on Soft Suede cardstock.
And the final touch for my card was to mount the front panel onto a piece of burlap from the Pressed Petals DSP. I don’t often use DSP as a base layer – but in this case I love how it finishes the card. The card base is Crumb Cake cardstock for a lovely neural finish.
Thanks for joining me today. It’s such a pleasure to be able to share with you. I hope you find the time to join in our challenge and share your beautiful creation with us on the Just Add Ink blog. We love visiting your blog, Pinterest, Instagram or other online location!
