Stampin’ Up!s Stippled Blossoms Meets My 8 Card Challenge!

By | 8 February, 2013

I’ve been hoarding my Stampin’ Up! Stippled Blossom Stamp Set.  Why?  Well, I keep seeing so many beautiful cards on Pinterest made with this amazing stamp set.  It was like idea overload!!  I decided to pull it off my shelf and get going! What am I waiting for?  I have all the inspiration and ideas I need.

stippledblossomsKeep in mind that I have been challenging my card designs all week to only use three pieces of card stock.  The background is Whisper White cut at 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2″.  I used a corner rounder on the bottom edges of the front and the back of the card.  I love that little touch lately.

I punched a Read Red label using my Decorative Label Punch (#120907).  This was punched from the middle of the red piece and then covered with the white mat!  The Real Red mat is cut at 2-3/4 x 4-1/4″, while the Whisper White mat is cut at 2-1/4 x4″.

I used the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder (#127751) to emboss only the bottom of the card.  You can see that I stamped the flowers on the Whisper White mat.  I stamped the solid background images from Stippled Blossoms (#126747) in Regal Rose and the stippled top images in Melon Mambo.  I added some Old Olive leaves using just the solid leaf stamp from the same set.  I didn’t try to line it up perfectly.  I love the slightly off look!  (Sorry to all the perfectionists out there!)

I finished the card off using one of the scraps that I had from the original cutting of my card stock.  I punched part of the decorative label from one of the left over strips and used the Thank You sentiment from my Lacy and Lovely stamp set (#122887).  You can see that I tucked it under the mats and added 3 rhinestones for some bling!

I love this card!  I can’t believe the variety I have in the cards that I’ve made this week, all starting with the same 3 basic pieces of paper!!!  You have got to try this!
