A bunch of blooms

Often when I need a card in a hurry, inspiration is missing, and I'm not sensible enough to have a collection ready-made at home; plus I like to make something special with a particular person in mind. It wont come as any surprise to my friends that my favourite flower stamp (until the next order arrives!!) is from the SU Eastern Blooms today and yesterday when I unexpectedly found myself at home with time on my hands I had a play. I used some of my limited range of stamp pads with embossing powders in pearl, white, light iridescent and copper to see what happens on some different card stock. Most of my cards are predominantly black or white, so adding coloured flowers is very brave for me!! This little task also gave me practise with my decoupage scissors, a skill I have temporarily abandoned, as well as a collection of spare images. Now to put something together for Mothers Day....


  1. Fantastic BLOOMS! I'm taking this set with as I have a girl's weekend of Stampin' fun! We do this twice a year and I'm SO excited!!!! Packing today and some baking. VERY stunning the colors you chose for the flowers and how they look with different papers.... Smiles! :)

  2. Oooh - now I know where to go if I need some flowers in a hurry ;)
    Can't believe you had time on your hands though - glad to see you using it wisely...

  3. That's a great idea! I do love those flowers... and such yummy colors.


love to know what you think.......
