blue blossoms...

stamps: morning meadow banner greetings both (hostess) from stampin' up!
inks: archival (cobalt) ink pad
papers: my minds eyes oh la la for her paper pad
cardstock: 4x6" landscape card blank, gold glitter paper, craftwork cards digi cardstock
I started my card by doing my matting and layering, first is my card blank which I inked blue. I added gold glitter paper next, then a layer of digi cardstock that I inked blue again to co-ordinate. I then cut the final layer, to only leave a thin border showing, and used this as my stamping base. I stamped the flower branches, using the same blue ink as before, around the edges of my card. I stamped the banner message onto a scrap of digi card and cut it out (you could stamp it straight onto the card if you preferred). finally I glued all my layers together, being extra careful to get them straight. the banner was last to go on, to complete the sketch.



  1. A beautiful and elegant card!

  2. So pretty, I love the cascade of flowers and the little banner greeting. Great way to combine both challenges, too! So glad you shared this fabulous creation with us at the Paper Players this week

  3. So pretty...I don't think I have ever seen that hostess set being used, but I love the delicate flowers and your gold mat! Thanks for playing with us this week!
