A week or so ago, I saw the cutest little card posted by my good friend Sandi Dailey. She had used the Build-a-Blossom stamp set and coordinating punch from the Occasions Mini catalog and I just fell in love with it!! So, I decided to follow her basic idea to make a larger (5 1/4" x 5 1/4") card for my card class. I kept her color combo and background and came up with this:
The complete list of supplies:
Stamp Set: Build-a-Blossom, Occasional Quotes, Elements of Style
Cardstock: Garden Green 5 1/4" x 10 1/2" and 2 1/4" x 1 1/2", Night of Navy 5" x 5", 1 1/4" x 2" and some scraps to punch the large petals, Very Vanilla 1" x 1 3/4" and some scraps for the large petals, Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper 4 7/8" x 4 7/8"
Ink: Garden Green, Night of Navy
Accessories: Corner Rounder Punch, Blossom Petals Punch, Springtime Vintage Big Designer Buttons, Tombo Multi-Purpose Glue, Stampin' Dimensionals
I used the Tombo glue to attach the flower petals and the button and added the layered sentiment with dimensionals. The swirly background is from the Elements of Style stamp set. I curled the top petals back with my bone folder so they wouldn't just lay flat. I think it gives more realistic dimension to the flower.
I am so thankful for my stamping friends who give me inspiration. I love sharing their creations too. You can find Sandi's card on her blog. She does AMAZING work and I love her vintage style. She is the one who actually got me hooked on it :) She is just the sweetest lady and I am so lucky to know her!! She is part of the same group that I am in (Ronda Wade's downline) and I miss her so much!! Thank goodness for blogs and facebook. We still keep in touch all of the time :)
Thank you so much for stopping by today so I could share Sandi's inspiration and my creation with you. 'Til next time...................
