Vintage Yellow Blossom

When I first got my hands on the Build A Blossom stamp set and Bold Blossom punch I just had to play around with it. This is one of the cards that I created.


Stamps: Build A Blossom
Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Chocoalte Chip, Whisper White, Pear Pizzaz, So Saffron
Ink: So Saffron, Old Olive
Accessories: Vellum, 5/8" Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Brayer, Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Folder, Glimmer Brad, 1/2" Circle Punch, Needle Tool, Mat Pack, Stampin' Dimensionals

This one was started with a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4" on the long side. A piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock was cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and was adhered to the card front. Next a piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8". I used the Inked Dry Embossing technique on the Whisper White cardstock with So Saffron ink and the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Folder. To find a tutorial on the Inked Dry Embossing technique go to the Tutorials tab.

The textured Whisper White cardstock was adhered to the card front. A piece of 5/8" Old Olive Satin Ribbon was added around the card front and tied into a bow.

Using a scrap of So Saffron cardstock six large petals were stamped in Daffodil Delight ink and punched out with the Bold Blossom punch. The same large petals were stamped in Daffodil Delight ink on Vellum and were punched out with the Bold Blossom punch. The leaves were stamped in Old Olive ink on a scrap of Pear Pizzaz cardstock and punched out with the Bold Blossom punch. The petals and leaves were adhered together to create a flower. The 1/2" Circle Punch was used with a scrap of Chocolate Chip cardstock and the Chocolate Chip circle was adhered in the center of the flower. The Needle Tool and Mat Pack were used to pierce a hole in the center of the flower and a Glimmer Brad was added.

The flower was adhered to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals to make the flower pop up off the front of the card. I love this new stamp set and punch. You can make a wonderful big bold flower to adorn any project you can imagine!

Have a wonderful day and have fun stamping!
