Stippled Blossoms and Two Challenges



Greetings, Stampers! I just tried out my new Stippled Blossoms Stamp Set for the first time and I just love it! I think i'll be using it a lot in the weeks to come. I had so much fun putting together this project that features two challenges.


The first challenge is a color challenge, compliments of Dynamic Duos. Razzleberry and Olive were just perfect for my project.


The second challenge is from the team over at Freshly Made Sketches. Once again this week they have a great, clean and simple sketch to get your creative juices flowing.


Stippled Blossoms is a two step set. To create by blossoms, I used Rich Razzleberry Ink for the first step, stamped off once. Then I used it again "full strength" for the second step. I hardly ever use my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig with clear mount stamps, but I did with this card as I wanted the images to be perfectly lined up.


I used some left over bits and pieces to make a pretty interior for my card. Both the inside and outside greeting are from the Blooming with Kindness Stamp Set.

  1. What a LOVELY card! I LOVE this stamp set but most likely won't buy it since I already have the retired Wild Rose and Pretty Peony. You did a fabulous job and whomever receives this card will surely appreciate your kindness!
