Stippled Blossoms with many wishes

When it comes to Stippled Blossoms, I've really got the bit between my teeth! I used it today to make a card using the gorgeous sketch at CASe this sketch - come and see:


Using one of my favourite colour combinations, I started by stamping the large flower and added the smaller flowers and leaves afterwards. Stippled Blossoms is a two-step stamping set so you stamp the solid image first and then stamp over them with the line image to get a lot of definition. You can use a stamp-a-majig to do this but sometimes I think it's nice if it's not too accurate (or perhaps I'm just saying that because mine isn't too accurate LOL!)


Markers are brilliant for giving the flowers coordinating detail and I used the same colour card stock to mat the panel. 


I expect you noticed that the sentiment has gone slightly wrong... It was going to say 'sending happy birthday wishes' and then I got carried away and used 'wishing you' instead so I'll have to send this to someone who has the sense of humour to appreciate the many, many wishes involved!

This is the sketch I was working with today:

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Stippled Blossoms, Hopeful Wishes and Petite Pairs (sentiment)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Summer Starfruit, Lucky Limeade, Old Olive, Basic Grey
Card stock: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango
Other: Markers, stamp-a-majig

I asked my youngest son whether when he was little he'd believed the wishes he'd made when blowing out his birthday candles. "Yes," he said. "Because they always came true!" He paused. "Of course they were things that were quite likely to come true," he added. "Like wishing we could have take away curry for tea and that I could go to bed late!" What a sweetie he is - always delighted with the simple things in life!

I'll be back tomorrow with another Stippled Blossoms creation. See you then!

  4. Such a beautiful card Vicky! I think I need to get in touch with Victoria shortly :))

    And what a lovely son you have - isn't he the same chap who sighed that there was something he'd do when he grew up (sorry, forgotten now) that was so sweet and unassuming too. Bless.

    Hugs, Di xx
