Mixing Stippled Blossoms with Sweet Stuff from Stampin' Up!
What do you get when you mix Stampin' Up!'s Stippled Blossoms with their Sweet Stuff stamp sets? A great card, that's what. I love the font they used for the words “miss you”, it is fun and girlie, and exactly what this card needed.
Back when I was a wee young stamper, 16 years ago, I totally fell in love with two step stamping. That is where you use two stamps to create one image. It's like magic every single time. After 16 years, it still isn't old. Stippled Blossoms is such a pretty set. I love it for sympathy cards, miss you cards, you can really use it for anything. OK, maybe not Christmas :).
Two step stamps give you the look of awesomeness in no time at all. Check out Stippled Blossoms:
For the flower, I used Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry – and don't worry, all the supplies are listed at the bottom of this post. For the leaves it is Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive.
I wanted to add another pop of color. And Real Red was perfect! Little hints of it and then also the base of the card really make the yellow of the flower pop.
Being Monday, you know it has to have polka dots, and they are there in texture with the Old Olive card stock. It was dry embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.
For the sentiment layers, I built those using both the Chalk Talk Framelits and the Decorative Label Punch. A little scallop of Real Red from the Dotted Scallop Border Punch help those layers not to blend into the background of the card.
A quick bow of Real Red 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon was added. If you struggle at all with tying bows, be sure to grab the 10 Second Bow Maker. You can tie this bow in 10 seconds with this handy tool.
Here is the finished card:
