Stippled Blossoms, CMCC58 & RS152


Hi, Friends! It's Wednesday and time for another challenge from Colour Me! This week it is a striking combination of Cherry Cobbler and Pink Pirouette. I love roses and love that gorgeous inspiration photo! I wish I had some of those roses growing in my garden! 


I was inspired to create some two-tone flowers and immediately reached for my Stippled Blossoms Stamp Set. This is without a doubt one of my most-loved stamp sets. I used Smoky Slate on the leaves for my neutral.


The layout is this wonderful sketch from Retro Sketches. 


Sadly, this set is not available in photopolymer (maybe next catalog?) so a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig is necessary for perfect alignment. The flowers and leaves were cut out by hand using my trusty Paper Snips.


Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Stippled Blossoms, Wetlands
Card Stock: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Cherry  Cobbler
Designer Series Paper: Regals Stack
Ink Pads: Pink Pirouette, Cherry  Cobbler, Smoky Slate
Accessories: White Bakers Twine, Sequins 

Thanks for stopping by! Please visit the rest of the Design Team at Colour Me, and we hope you'll play along this week, too!
