Betsy’s Blossoms for #stampingsunday

May 11, 2014 No Comments

Happy Mother’s Day!

One of my brothers was in for my daughter’s Orchestra concert this weekend.  So, we started the day early-ish with breakfast out as he was headed home today.  I came home to some lovely flowers.  Think Rich Razzleberry with stripes of the upcoming Blackberry Bliss, a little Daffodil Delight and Garden Green.  I love the bold color.  They are sitting right by my work “station” so I wouldn’t be surprised if these colors creep into something in the next few days.

Today as the post title suggests, Betsy’s Blossoms is being used.  It’s on the retiring list but has not yet sold out.  So, I wanted to give it a last hurrah before it’s gone for good.

Tools used for Betsy's Blossom card from theartfulinker.com

I started with Calypso Coral cardstock, the Betsy’s Blossom stamp set, Retro Fresh washi tape, the 2 1/2″ circle punch and the Circle Card Thinlit.

The dahlia like image in the stamp set was inked with Pool Party and stamped several times on Whisper White cardstock.

 

 

 

 

Then, I put the 2 1/2″ circle punch and my trusty paper snips to work punching and snipping the many stamped flowers.

The focal flower on the flip part of the card, is a series of stamped, punched and snipped pieces.  By adding Stampin’ Dimensionals between the layers, you increase the appearance of fullness for this flower.

 

 

 

Also from Betsy’s Blossoms are the stems.  They were inked in Pear Pizzazz and stamped on Whisper White and then fussy cute.

The stems were pieced across the various layers to tie the images from one panel to another.

 

 

The same was done with the Retro Fresh washi tape.  So that whether the card is closed or fully open, the washi tape continues across the bottom and doesn’t break the overall design.

And here is the Betsy’s Blossoms Circle Card fully open.  I haven’t played with this stamp set in awhile but, I could easily fall in love with it all over again.

Pull out your Betsy’s Blossoms stamp set and share something made with it for #stampingsunday.
