Ruffled Blooms and Exquisite Leaf Set by Jean Okimoto


P1015030 2

Send a fresh garden greeting with Ruffled Blooms and Exquisite Leaf Set layered over a trellis-y frame from Poppystamps.  Hi, Jean Okimoto  here with a spring design that's easy and versatile - just pick your favorite shades from our 6x6 Collections of 108 coordinating colors.


Cut Ruffled Blooms from different colors in the Vibrant Violet Collection.  I wasn't sure which blossoms and colors I'd use - so I cut all 4 designs, then saved the extras for another day.  Attach the oval centers to the 3 largest flowers.  Color all of the centers using a small dauber or cotton swab and Sunflower Yellow Brilliance.  The resulting color varies when Sunflower Yellow is layered over the different shades of cardstock.

Cut the Exquisite Leaf Set pieces from the Lush Green Collection.

Cut white cardstock with the 2-¾" Square Basics die.  Adding a matching solid background helps the flowers stand out more.

Cut the Poppystamps Penelope Pinpoint Frame from white cardstock.  This versatile A2-sized die looks great layered over a contrasting card too.  I chose a larger card to add a greeting.

Stamp the greeting - from the Open  Studio Friends and Family Clear Stamp Set - on a Lush Green sheet with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink, then cut the greeting block with a 1-¼" Square Basics die.


Attach the diecuts to a white A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Add the purplish Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut an A6-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting our blog...see you on Friday!
