I used a design by Julie Gearinger for the card I made today. She always makes such beautiful cards and even though I didn't have the sets she used, I figured I could make a similar card with the hostess set, Bloom with Hope. I didn't have the right leaves without using the retired hostess set, Simply Sketched, so here it is. I hope you love it as much as I do!
Stamp sets - Bloom with Hope (hostess), Simply Sketched (retired hostess), A Dozen Thoughts
Cardstock - Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black,Soft Sky (for sponging), Blendabilites - Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder
Accessories - Big Shot, Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Paper Snips (the flower is cut out by hand and mounted with dimensionals) Stampin' Sponge, Stampin' Dimensionals,
I used a retired Color Spritzer with a Soft Suede marker to add the specks on the sponged Soft Sky.
This is the same card using Cherry Cobbler cardstock and Blendabilities.
