Soft Blooms at JAI

Hello Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is an Inspiration Challenge JAI#257.

I loved this picture as soon as I saw it, as it has my favourite colours of Crisp Cantaloupe, Very Vanilla and gorgeous soft tones.

I started with a card base of Calypso Coral, then a layer of Crisp Cantaloupe.

Today I showcase a card made using the Six-Sided Sampler Bundle which is on sale until 17 May. It is great value and very versatile. I often make masculine cards with this set, but as you can see it can also be quite feminine!

The Six-Sided Sampler Stamp Set and Hexagon Punch can be purchased as a Bundle for a short time only. Until 17 May 2015 you can get this bundle for only $55.16 (clear) or $63.66 (wood).

I stamped each of the four chosen images, six times each, onto Very Vanilla card stock in Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pear Pizzazz & Sahara Sand. Then punched each one out with the Hexagon Punch.

I applied some double sided sticky paper to the Whisper White card stock and peeled off the top layer so the entire piece is sticky. I added the Hexagons so they nudge up against each other to form the background pattern. Once finished, I trimmed the excess from each edge with paper snips.

I stamped the Stippled Blossom blooms in Crisp Cantaloupe and then Calypso Coral, a two step process using my handy Stamp-a-ma-jig!!! I masked the first one and then stamped a second bloom next to it. Then I fussy cut them out using paper snips before adding to the card with dimensionals.

The leaves are punched fom Silver Glitter paper using the Bird Builder Punch.

The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments Stamp Set and punched with the Word Window Punch. I poked a small hole on the left hand side and added it to the Crochet Trim with some Linen Thread.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope, it helps tie it all together!

I have to say I was very pleased with the outcome of this card!
