Colour Challenge Gorgeous Posies

 Hi Everyone,

Today I made a card for a colour challenge using Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler and I used my favourite Gorgeous Posies stamp set, I just love it, it is so pretty. Let me show you what I did:


1 piece of misty moonlight card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" and a strip 3/4" x 3 1/4"
2 pieces of whisper white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and a strip for the sentiment 1/2" x 3"
Bumblebee ink
Cherry Cobbler ink
Misty Moonlight ink
Old Olive ink
Gorgeous Posies stamp set
Simply Scored
Bone folder
Paper snips
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side, score the misty moonlight card stock at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

It is very easy to stamp your own design and there is no right or wrong way to do it. If you've never tried it, just give it a go.

On one of the pieces of whisper white, I stamped the large flower, randomly in bumblebee ink. I also stamped one flower on a post it note and cut it out to use as a mask.

Then I stamped the flower centre using the misty moonlight forgetting that it would look green over the top of the bumblebee but never mind, no right and wrong haha!

I then placed the mask over the flower and stamped the leaves in old olive, moving the mask to each flower in turn, mine isn't perfect but it doesn't matter.

There is a stamp in this set which I call the 'twiggy bit', I'm not sure what it is really but I thought it might be veins for the leaves. I stamped a set of these inside each of the leaves, again using the mask for the flower.  I wasn't really sure about that, I think I prefer them as 'twiggy bits' on their own, so I stamped them around the flowers, again using the mask, with the cherry cobbler ink.

When you are happy with your design, adhere it to the card front and also add the other piece of whisper white to the inside of the card.

Stamp a sentiment on the strip of whisper white with the misty moonlight ink and then mount this layer on to the bigger misty moonlight layer and add to the card front with dimensionals.

There you are, a quick and unique card, I hope that you like it and will give it a try.
