A guest designer with a different take

blue blossom card close up

I have a guest designer with me today – my lovely neighbour Alison. I’ve mentioned before, that she often comes round on a Friday morning for a craft and a natter. To say that she only started with cardmaking around October last year, she’s pretty whizzy at it already and definitely keeping me on my toes!

This was her take on the card that I shared yesterday. She used a different colour combo and stamp sets but created a similar flower.

blue blossom card

Stamp sets: Spiced Paisley (W127155 or C125817), Oval All (113790)
Cardstock: Marina Mist (121682), Pink Pirouette (116203), Very Vanilla (106550)
Ink: Pink Pirouette (111838), Pretty in Pink (101301)
DSP: Beau Chateau (122357)
Punches: Scallop Oval (119856), Large Oval (119855)
Satin Ribbon: Marina Mist (retired)
1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon: Pretty in Pink (retired)
Originals Dies: Blossom Party (115971)
Other: Basic Pearls (119247)
Tools: Big Shot (113439)

The card base is Marina Mist. A mat of Very Vanilla was randomly stamped with a selection of stamps from the Spiced Paisley set using Pink Pirouette ink. This was matted onto Pink Pirouette card and the layers were wrapped with a couple of co-ordinating ribbons in the top corner before adhering direct to the card front. The blossom was created as in the post here, using the same DSP, but Marina Mist and Pink Pirouette card and topped with a single pearl in the centre. The sentiment was stamped in Pretty in Pink ink (a slightly darker pink so that it’s easier to read) onto Very Vanilla card and punched out with the Large Oval. It was adhered direct to a Scallop Oval punched from Pink Pirouette card, topped with a Pearl and popped up on the card front with dimensionals.

Stamp sets: Spiced Paisley (W127155 or C125817), Happiest Birthday Wishes (W122615 or C122617)
Cardstock: Very Vanilla (106550)
Ink: Pretty in Pink (101301)

For the inside a Very Vanilla insert was stamped off in each corner with the Spiced Paisley circular motif and with the circular birthday sentiment in the centre, all in Pretty in Pink ink.

Please leave a comment for Alison and I’ll pass them on to her.
