is another stamp set I'm pleased to see is being carried forward to the
new catalogue - Wild About Flowers!
Out of the three different two-step
flower stamps there are in this set, my favourite is the Cornflower,
which means I have somewhat overlooked the other two!
I'm not sure what
this flower is, except to say it's very pretty in Blushing Bride!
Pear Pizzazz for the stems and leaves. Although I've made mine a Thank
You Card, it would be ideal as a birthday card, Mother's Day Card, as
well as a Get Well Soon Card, too!
I decided to use our Shimmery White
Cardstock (CS) for my card as the Doilies are very slightly off-white in
colour and I felt they blended better than they did with Whisper White CS.
Before I decided on Shimmery
White CS, I checked the Doilies against Very Vanilla CS and found them to
be far too white!
chose Blushing Bride CS for the first layer, and then a top layer of
Shimmery White CS.
I repeated this for the layers inside the card, too.
create the image, I die cut a circle using the No. 3 circle die from
the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
The Wild About Flowers Stamp Set is
photopolymer, so it made positioning the first stems and leaves stamp a
I followed through with a second stamp, making sure I didn't
overlap with the previous image.
Then I stamped the flowers using
Blushing Bride Ink.
I was so pleased with the result, I moved straight
onto stamping the flowers on the top layer inside the card.
allowed myself to get somewhat carried away with the amount of flowers I stamped
on the inside of the card!
stamped the first stems and leaves image on the right-hand side, then I
stamped the second stamp on the left-hand side of this first image but lower, and
then the third one on the left-hand side of the second image!
quite a large area of white to the right-hand side of the first image,
so I stamped the fourth and final stems and leaves image to fill this
I finished off by stamping all the flowers in position.
adhered the flower image onto two Doilies - I couldn't separate them -
using Tombow, and then adhered the Doilies to the card front.
Blushing Bride Ink, I stamped the sentiment about 3/4" up from the edge
of the top white layer.
I added three Basic Pearls underneath the
sentiment which is from the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set, which is also being carried forward into the new catalogue.
all the layers together, my final touch was to add small pearls to flowers on the card front.
I received a lovely surprise in the post from Stampin' Up! It was my Five Year
I've photographed the pin by the Stampin' Mist bottle to give an idea how big the pin is, which is the same as the base diameter!
It really doesn't feel like I've been
with Stampin' Up! that long - time has gone so quickly!
Here's to the
next five years and further!
That's it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
