Mixed Bunch

Today’s inspiration is from the Stampin Up! Mixed Blossom Stamp Set and Coordinating Blossom Punch.  Both of these items are found in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I’d have to say… they are my favorite items from this mini. 

As you can see I was feeling spring colors, flowers and thinking about Easter as I prepare for my Easter Stamp Camps. I honestly wasn’t sure which direction I was going with this card.  I was went for it.

I started with a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of whisper white card stock that I textured with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  I then decided to pick up the Blossom Punch and just start punching random sections out of it.

Next, I cut small pieces of pretty in pink, daffodil delight and wisteria wonder to fill in the punched flowers.  I then used the coordinating ink pads and stampin up mixed blossom stamp set to stamp these lovely flowers.  Now… once I punched those flowers out and matched them up on the card you couldn’t see the pop of color underneath.  So, I just used my scissors and trimmed the punched flower so it was smaller and not as much white around it.  This made it small enough to allow the color to show through.  I also cut up to the middle on each little petal.  This makes it light and fluffy… giving it life.

Thank you for stopping by BrandysCards.com.  I hope I have inspired you to pull out your crafting supplies and just go for it!!!  Have a wonderful weekend.  Blessings,  Brandy

    Love the card. It is so pretty and Spring-like. Thanks for the idea….never would have thought to do that to a card on my own. Also, is there going to be a Pinehurst Stampin Get-Away this year?

    This is so sweet! I will definitely have to try it. What punch did you use to make the tiny white blossoms?
