Blended Bloom

I love the new Stampin’ Blendabilities! I also love to color so this was a match made in heaven for me. I usually just stamp a lot of the same image onto white paper and then I color them while I watch TV.  Here’s the story and instructions for today’s card.

I made this card for my sister’s birthday and then I forgot to mail it. Sorry Sis! I am terrible about getting stuff in the mail.  I have to make a trip to town to mail my stuff. *sigh*

So let’s get started on this card.
I started with a base card in whisper white measuring 5 ½” by 4 ¼”.
I cut the elegant eggplant layer at 5 ¼” by 4” then I ran it through my Big Shot using the fan embossing folder and adhered it to the card base.
I colored the Blended Bloom stamp with my Wisteria Wonder blendabilities and the center of my flower with my Daffodil Delight blendabilities.  I used my white gel pen to pick out some hi-lights on the flower.  Then I fussy cut around it. I wanted the doily to look like a fan laying underneath the flower, I think I got close, don’t you? No instructions for that, I just played with it until I liked the way it looked. 

I cut some leaves using the little leaf sizzlet die that I just realized is retired, so you won’t be able to order that one. So sorry. I used my Pear Pizzaz Stampin’ Write marker to add some veins to make the leaves look more life-like. Next, I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach my flower and give it some pop.
For the sentiment, I used the Happy Birthday from the Bloom with Hope stamp set. Which I punched using the Modern Label punch.  Then I punched two more Modern Labels out of Crushed Curry cardstock. I cut one of them horizontally and one vertically and layered them to the back of my sentiment and again I used some dimensionals to adhere it to my card.
Here’s the list of supplies I used.  Don’t forget to check out my basic tool kit.  You can order any of these supplies just by clicking on that item.
Do you think that my sister would have liked my card?
