pretty florals ...

stamps: baby blossoms (two step stampin') & petite pairs from stampin' up!
inks: archival ink pad (coffee, olive, rose madder, vermillion)
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock, 4x6 card blank
extras: scallop oval & large oval punches from stampin up! also a stampin up! stamp-a-ma-jig (if you have one you will know what I mean, if not all you need to know is that it is the simplest thing in the world but makes life so much easier, especially when doing two step stamping like the background of this card)

I inked my card blank in brown and matted a piece of white card on top. I cut out my banner shape in some white card, ready to be stamped with the background. I created the background using the baby blossom set I have from stampin up! (of course you could use pattern papers or any other stamps you like, I just made my life hard by doing two step stamping... this means I had to line up and stamp the base colour, a highlight and the foliage for each flower separately.) I then matted my banner onto a larger one I had inked brown. I added the finishing touch of a sentiment, which I stamped on white and cut out using an oval punch, then layered this onto a scalloped oval punch which I again had inked brown to co-ordinate. 


  1. This is so pretty! The patterned paper reminds me of vintage wallpaper! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

    1. I actually have wallpaper like that, I lined my craft room draws out with it, that would have been a lot quicker than stamping it!! thanks for the lovely comment Mx

  2. This is such a soft serene card! Lovely use of all that white space. Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!
