SU Stippled Blossoms

SU Stippled Blossoms

I just adore the Stippled Blossoms stamp set- it is so beautiful when stamped. Of course, my best friend, the Stamp-a-ma-jig, makes it so easy to create a beautiful two-step blossom. With different posies and different leaves- a complete bouquet of loveliness from this one set # 126747.

I decided to use it for my Dynamic Duos Soft and Subtle Challenge # 89 using Blushing Bride and Pistachio Pudding this week.

I think the Design Team all had flowers on their minds this week….what will you do with the colors? I love seeing everyone’s take each week- you are all an inspiration to me.

I was also inspired by Vicki Dutcher’s card at the MUSE Card Club #53 this week. The sympathy theme, the layers of bordering, and the clustering of elements on her card inspired part of my design- I just remembered I forgot to add a little butterfly on my flowers! Alas, I already gave it to my friend so I can’t do that now…

SU Stippled Blossoms for a Happy Mother’s Day to Everyone!!

I wanted to wish everybody who is still up a Happy Mother’s Day today! Jim and I spent a wonderful day with our moms and extended family. Now, the food is put away, the dishwasher is running, and I had a moment to share a  card a thoughtful husband of one of my stamping friends got from me for his sweet wife for Mother’s Day. I used the SU Stippled Blossoms to create a 9 inch by 4 inch card that fit in a neat chocolate/espresso colored envelope tied with a pretty pink bow with a gift certificate inside: 

SU Stippled Blossoms Mother's Day!!!
