Happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a relaxing weekend!

Yesterday I posted a video from Stampin’ Up! but for those of you who receive notification of my blog posts via email, the video didn’t show up in the email.  I have no idea why this happens but I’ll try to remember to let you know next time to click the title of the post so that you can see the post in its entirety.

Today I want to share a card I made for a friend of mine for her birthday using the stamp set Bunch of Blossoms.  This is a Two-Step Stamp set which allows you to combine individual stamps to build the final image you want, in the colors you want. In this stamp set you get a whopping 26 pieces!  I’ve pointed out below which ones I used to create my card.


Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set #141573


This was the first time I’d used this stamp set and I did a lot of experimenting to get the look I wanted.  For the petals, I used one color but when I used the stamp on the right (the one with more coverage), I stamped onto my ink pad and then stamped off on my grid paper before stamping onto my Whisper White piece.   The other stamp was used full strength.  I did the same thing with the leaves.  I recommend trying it out and seeing what you like!

I added Wink of Stella to the petals and leaves which gave it a pretty shimmery look!  I embossed a piece of Whisper White with the Petal Burst embossing folder.  My sentiment is from the stamp set Birthday Banners.
