Here is our inspiration image for this challenge. How beautiful is that tree!! The very lovely Lou Kitzelman chose this beautiful image.


Here is my card for this challenge! I have used the Blessings of Home stamp set which is going to be available in the January to June Mini Catalogue.

  1. Start with a Polished Pink card base measuring 21cm x 14.9cm scored and folded in half
  2. Cut another piece of Polished pink card stock tp measure 10cm x 14.3cm and adhere this to the front of the card base using Dimensionals
  3. Cit a piece of Basic White card stock to measure 6.8cm x 10.2cm
  4. Cut another piece of Basic White card stock to measure 6.6cm x 10cm
  5. Rub the Apple Papaya ink on the top of a piece of acetate and then Polished Pink ink below. Then use a water spritzer to spread the ink by spraying a small amount over both inks. Using the smaller piece of Basic white card stock push this into the ink on the acetate to pick up the colour. Allow it to dry. You can help it dry by using your Heat Tool.
  6. Once the ink is dry stamp the floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Versamark™ink then sprinkle on some white embossing powder and set with the heat tool
  7. Glue the image layer to the slightly larger piece of Basic White card stock and adhere this to the from to the card using Dimensionals
  8. On a 7.5cm x 1cm piece of Basic Black card stock stamp the sentiment in Versamark™ink then sprinkle on some white embossing powder and set with the heat tool
  9. Cut a 9.5cm length of the Gold Fine Art Ribbon and glue this behind the sentiment layer. Pop both these layers up on Dimensionals and adhere to the card front on the bottom third of the image layer

Many thanks for stopping by to read my blog post today.
I hope you like the gorgeous blooms from the Blessings of Home stamp set as much as I do.

Have a creative week!

  1. Such a striking card Leonie! The softer blended colours contrast with the block of colour on the card front so well. Love it. x
