Stampin' Up!'s Stippled Blossoms....

Today's card uses the new Stippled Blossoms stamp set.  I just love this set!  The flowers turn out so beautiful no matter what color you use and even if you don't line them up perfectly, they still look wonderful!
Here's what you will need to make this card:
  • Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Baja Breeze & Very Vanilla cardstock.
  • Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Soft Suede & Baja Breeze classic ink.
  • Stippled Blossoms & Thoughts & Prayers stamp sets
  • Fancy Fan embossing folder
  • Finishing Touches edgelits
  • Apothecary Accents framelits
  • 3/8" Stitched Satin ribbon - Midnight Muse
  • Stamp-a-ma-jig (optional)
I cut out the frame using the Apothecary Accents framelit and then stamped the solid flower in Baja Breeze and then stamped over in Midnight Muse with the detail flower.  I did not use the Stamp-a-ma-jig but I think it looks great anyway. 
To make the leaves, I used the Gumball Green ink and stamped off on my grid paper once with the solid leaf and then used the ink at full strength for the detail stamp.  This gave the leaves a perfect lightness and darkness to them.  I then sponged around the outside edge of the framelit using the Soft Suede ink.
