One of the first stamps I ordered from the new Stampin’ Up! 2012-13 Idea Book was, “Betsy’s Blossoms.” I just love the bold stamping images which seem to show off the new In-Colors terrifically. This is one of the cards we made at my workshop.
The recipe for this card is as follows:
Petite Pairs (122495)
Betsy’s Blossoms (126004)
Whisper White Card Stock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
Pool Party Card Stock 3-3/4″ x 5″
Various scraps of Whisper White
Used on the flowers
Wisteria Wonder (122938)
Primrose Petals (126858)
Raspberry Ripple (126859)
Summer Starfruit (126981)
Gumball Green (126861)
Island Indigo (122937)
Basic Rhinestones (119246), Basic Pearls (119247), Extra-Large Oval (119859)
HERE’S WHAT TO DO:
On the scraps of Whisper White Card Stock stamp the single flower from the Betsy’s Blossoms Stamp Set in the Wisteria Wonder, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit. Cut each flower out.
Stamp the bird in the Island Indigo and cut out. Use the tiniest Basic Pearl to highlight his eye.
On the Pool Party, stamp two or three leaves in Gumball Green. Stamp the leaves where they’ll pop up behind the flowers.
With Island Indigo, stamp the, “Sending Many Thanks” greeting on Whisper White and punch it out with the Extra-Large Oval Punch.
Arrange all the flowers to your liking. Adhere some of the flowers and bird with Dimensionals and place a Basic Rhinestone in the center of each flower for the perfect finishing touch!
Have fun with Betsy’s Blossoms Stamp Set.
