There are Many Ways to Build a Blossom

Make full flowers, buds, just opening flowers, even wilting flowers with the Build a Blossom stamp set. Mix and match the images with Stampin'Up!'s inks and papers to create your perfect flower!

Today's project is for this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge. And you've probably already guessed the challenge ~ flowers.
  • The vines were created using the Tasteful Trim Die and trimmed with Paper Snips to make them more narrow like vines.
  • The leaves were punched with the Two Step Owl punch. Both were done in Certainly Celery card stock and the edges sponged with Certainly Celery ink.
  • The flowers were created using the Build a Blossom stamp set and coordinating Blossoms Petals punch. I used So Saffron and Poppy Parade colors.
  • The sentiment is from the Oval All stamp set; stamped on So Saffron card stock and inked with Poppy Parade and Wild Wasabi inks.
  • I used Dotto, Tombow Glue and Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the project down.
  • The whole project was adhered to a piece of Wild Wasabi Textured card stock.
I hope you enjoyed today's project. This stamp set is available in the Occasions Mini catalog current until April 30th. Contact me if you have any questions. If you'd like to place an order you can order directly through me or 24 hours a day at my online "store".

Martha, I LOVE your card! Great use of the blossom set and punch...

Patti J said...

This is a beautiful card, Martha! Wow - SO much detail! You know, somehow, there has to be a way to use that top left image and perhaps the bottom right leaf to make a Christmas angel, or something pretty cool - what a great set!!!
