When I saw the beautiful image I decided to use the Jar of Flowers stamp set. So not only did I get colour inspiration but I chose my stamp set as the flowers are in what looks to be a jar. The kitchen looks amazing in the background of the image too!

  1. Start with a Misty Moonlight card base Measuring 21cm x 14.9cm
  2. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla Card stock to measure 10 x 14.3 cm and run this through your Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine to emboss with the Tasteful Textile Folder. Glue this to the card base
  3. Die cut the second largest Scalloped Rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies in Misty Moonlight
  4. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to measure. Glue this to the Misty Moonlight scalloped rectangle and then to the card base. Stamp the sentiment in Misty Moonlight in the bottom right hand corner of this layer
  5. Stamp the Jar in Seaside Spray on Very Vanilla card stock then stamp the half jar stamp in Seaside Spray. Stamp the stems in Crumb Cake and colour with Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends. Punch out with the Jar Punch
  6. Stamp the Sunflowers in Crumb Cake and Colour with Mango Melody and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends. Fussy cut this arrangement
  7. Using Dimensionals adhere both the jar and floral arrangement to the scalloped layer
  8. Tie a length of Linen thread in a bow and adhere to the base of the arrangement with glue as in photo
  9. Select three Mango Melody sequins from the Artistry Blooms Sequins and secure to the card front as in image

The card looks so lovely in Misty Moonlight and Very Vanilla. I always love anything Navy and White and this is close to that look with the Mango Melody to brighten things up. Not a colour combination that I would have otherwise put together but I am so very happy with how things turned out.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today. You are appreciated!

Have a creative week!
