Swamped with Blooms

Or in other words…..Awash with Flowers – my new stamp set…Love it!

I made two class cards using this stamp set and it will be used again and again.  (So watch out Ladies 🙂 )


I am so just so into butterflies…..  For these ones, I used Vellum. Beautiful.   I edged the butterflies with Perfect Plum then dabbed them with Shimmer, Frost White using a dauber.  The word is …..  DAB on the mist.  I used Tombow to attach them to the card.  (Just a small dot of Tombow not a blob!)

The picture doesn’t really show how striking the vellum looks with the dabs of mist

BASE:  Elegant Eggplant
Perfect Plum:  3 1/2” x 4”
River Rock:   3 1/2” x 1″ (x2)
Whisper White:  3 1/4” x 3 3/4”
Vellum:  2 1/2” x 2 1/4”;  Scrap for small oval

INK:  Shimmer—Frost White, More Mustard, River Rock, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, VersaMarker

PUNCHES:  Scallop Trim Border, Large Oval

What do you think of the frame?  Neat!  I used 2″ x 2″ squares.  Two squares in Whisper White and two squares in Elegant Eggplant.

Large Flower:  Stamp and cut each petal out and attach with Tombow on the bottom of the petals.  This then enables shaping the petals.

This flower is cut out with a slight edge.  Notice the corner.
