Bright Blossoms


The new Bright Blossoms stamps are perfect for bringing sunshine into someone's day.


I knew when I saw this lovely flower that I was going to be using yellows and oranges. I started by creating a background using the Creativity Wordblock and orange and yellow dye inks on white cardstock.  I cut the background to size and distress the edges.  I repeated the steps on a second piece of white cardstock and stamped the flower using the orange dye ink. I stamped the Thank You sentiment using the orange dye ink. 
I distressed the edges on all the layers.  I added a ribbon and pop dotted the main panel over the background.


My second card uses the lovely rose stamp from the Bright Blossoms set. . 
I created the main panel first with the rose stamped in soft pink on white cardstock. I added the lovely thank you stamped over the image with a black ink.  I then wanted a background and created a panel with repeating the rose but changing the angle of the stamped image.  I added a doily behind my main image and attached everything to a white cardbase. The roses are lovely.  I think this would make a fantastic thank you card for wedding or shower gifts.

Have a creative day!

  1. Both cards are lovely. Although I love pink, the first ones all bright and spring like is my favorite. Just ready for spring and warmer weather. :-)
