Stippled Blossoms

The inspiration for this card is from a card made by Suzanne Kohler.  I loved the sketch of the card, so I just put the Stampin' Up touch to it.

The stamp sets used are "Stippled Blossom" and "Petite Pairs" with a colour scheme of Whisper White, Primrose Petals, Old Olive and Crumb Cake.

The "Stippled Blossoms" stamp set is a two step stamp set.  Ink up the base stamp with Primrose Petals and off stamp before stamping on the Whisper White cardstock, next ink up the overlay stamp with Primrose Petals and stamp over the top of the base stamp.  It gives the beautiful finish of the two tones in the blossom.  The same is done for the leaves using Old Olive. Cut out all the pieces and put to one side.

Create a card base 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" Whisper White, 5 3/8" 5 3/8" Primrose Petals mat, 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White mat which has been embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  Build up the base card and the mats.

Cut a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock 5 1/4" x 1 3/8".  Put one end in the Decorative Labels Punch to give the scalloped edge, cut a slit in this piece about 1/4" in from end to thread the ribbon through.  Stamp the small stippled flower from the set with Versmark Ink over this piece.  Cut a piece of Crumb Cake DSP from the Neutrals Designer Paper Stack 4 3/4" by 5/8".   Stick the DSP to the Crumb Cake cardstock piece.  Cut a 6 " piece of Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon and thread through the slit and across the DSP, stick down on back of the card piece.  Put to one side for the moment.

Cut a piece of Crumb Cake DSP 4 1/4" x 5" and create the scallop edge on the bottom using the Large Scallop Edgelits.  Adhere this to the base card and mats.

Using Whisper White and the Paper Doily Sizzlits cut out a doily.  Stick this to the Crumb Cake DSP piece.

Stick the Crumb Cake cardstock/ribbon piece down across the card just above the scalloped edge but covering the bottom of the doily.  You may need to trim the bottom of the doily so it does not show at the bottom.  Create a ribbon bow using the Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon and stick down with glue dots over the slit where the ribbon was threaded through.  Add 3 rhinestones to the ribbon near the bow.

Arrange the Stippled Blossom flowers and leaves until you are happy with the look and stick down.

Create a sentiment by punching out a Crumb Cake circle using the 1 3/8" circle punch, stamping the sentiment on a piece of Whisper White in Primrose Petals ink and punching out with the 1 1/4" circle punch.  Mat these, attach rhinestones just under the sentiment and adhere with dimensionals.
