Build a Blossom Card

In my last post I said that there were a few things in the Occasions Mini Catalog I had wanted to purchase right away. Take a Spin was one of them and Build a Blossom (121923 wood and 121994 clear) and the coordinating Blossom Petals Punch (121808) was another one.

The flower can be made in quite a few ways depending on the petals that you choose to stamp and punch out. The size of the flower can be different too. I guess what I am saying is you have quite a few options which makes this stamp set and punch very versatile.

I have shared before that one thing I really have a hard time with is colors. I have found that going to the Stampin' Up! catalog, looking at their samples, and finding my favorite color choices from those samples has helped me a lot. For this card I chose perfect plum, pretty in pink, concord crush, always artichoke, very vanilla cardstock, and lap of luxury dsp.

These are the rest of the Stampin' Up! supplies I used to create this card.

Stamp sets: Build a Blossom, Because I care, and En Francais; Ink: pretty in pink, concord crush, and always artichoke; Tools: Crystal Effects, Blossom Petals Punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Scallop Oval XL Punch, and 1 3/4" x 7/8" Oval Large Punch.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my blog. I pray it has inspired you to create one too. Please leave a comment if you would like.

Now go-n-stamp!!
