Three Minute sponged Stippled Blossoms

Good morning and welcome to Three Minute Thursday, my day for producing a super-fast Stampin' Up card. If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know that I have been in the grip of Stippled Blossoms fever for the past week - I just can't get enough of this fabulous set! But is it any good for quick cards? Of course it is! Come and see:

Using a torn piece of paper as a mask, I sponged a bit of Lucky Limeade ink over the bottom of some lovely speckled Naturals White card stock. The solid, small flower was stamped using Pacific Point ink and a little more of the ink was used to sponge around the sky area. I used a marker to ink up and stamp a leaf, draw a stem and doodle a centre for the flower.

The sentiment was added using my stamp-a-majig to position it accurately - and there we are: a card in around three minutes! Of course I then decided it needed some Island Indigo bakers twine and it took another three hours to tie the bow for some reason!

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Stippled Blossoms, Petite Pairs
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Pacific Point
Card stock: Whisper White, Naturals White
Other: Lucky Limeade marker, Island Indigo bakers twine, stamp-a-majig

Have you noticed the new shopping button in my side bar? I've been chatting to friends about 24 hour shopping and it's amazing how many of us do our shopping in the middle of the night! I remember when our local supermarket announced that it would be open 24 hours. I was in the middle of having my babies at the time and would sometimes turn up there at 3am in the morning feeling that I was having a real expedition!

See you tomorrow!
