Today’s project showcases two of my favorite recent additions to the Stampin’ Up! line. The stamp set is called “Build A Blossom” (#121994, $18.95) and features several petal and leaf shapes designed to be used in a two-step stamping process. The other product I used was the coordinating Blossom Petal XL punch–which is truly a must have with this stamp set and an invaluable time saver.
The textured cardstock for this card project is Stampin’ Up! in Brilliant Blue. I also used a clear transparency overlay that has been stamped with a polka dot pattern over the cardstock. The petals of the flower were cut from Stampin’ Up! cardstock in Whisper White and stamped with two shades of blue ink–Stampin’ Up! in Marina Mist and Tsukineko Memento in Danube Blue. I used a Zig Two-Way glue pen to adhere one petal to the next and shape my blossom. The perfect finishing touch was a jeweled button from Webster’s Pages in a lovely aqua color. It’s a very simple card in its layout, but maximizes the beauty and wow factor of the image and the colors.
