I have had a wonderful day at home today with the kids home on school holidays, and they sat with me and made some cards of their own. Yes, they did get a bit bored after a little while, so they headed out to watch the movie Frozen. Miss 8 made this card before she went. I was impressed and had to share it with you!!!
Anyway, back to what I decided to make and that was enter a challenge at Just Add Ink, which this week is a Sketch Challenge JAI#233.
I decided to try turning the sketch sideways and see what I could come up with. I chose one of my all time favourite SU stamp sets, Stippled Blossoms and wanted to make a card also using the new I Love Lace background stamp which I find absolutely stunning and I think these 2 sets go very well together!
I began with a Perfect Plum card base and added the banner. This was created by stamping I Love Lace with Versamark Ink onto Whisper White card stock, then heat embossed with gold. I then added the Baker’s Twine and tied in a bow.
I stamped the flowers in Perfect Plum with Elegant Eggplant, and the leaves in Pistachio Pudding with Wild Wasabi. Then fussy cut them all out!!!! I added each of the flowers with dimensionals and glued the leaves.
I stamped the sentiment in Elegant Eggplant onto the whisper white card and die cut with the framelits before adding with dimensionals.
Why don’t you give a challenge a go, they are so much fun. Head across to the Just Add Ink page for more inspiration and see how the designers interpreted this challenge.

I can see why you love your lace stamp, the effect with the gold embossing is amazing! It looks so pretty with those beautifully coloured flowers too. Beautiful card.
Absolutely beautiful Kate! I love Stippled Blossoms too and you have certainly made it even more beautiful pairing it with the I Love Lace stamp.
