Spring Blossom Card

Hi everyone,

I hope you have all had a great weekend and have lots of lovely things planned for this week.

I wanted to join in the We Love Stamping challenge this month. The theme is anything goes with the option to add stenciling.

I’ve been itching to use this stamp since I bought in December. So I thought I would have a play and make a card for the challenge. I’ve not made a card in ages and it was a bit hit and miss.

Credits for stamps used: Kokeshi Doll and Scrip – Paperartsy Jofy. Leaf Flourish – Elusive Images.

I used some different floral stencils on the background and then stamped and embossed the leaf flourishes and stamped the wording. I stamped the little Kokeshi Doll onto a separate card, coloured it with ink and attached it with foam tabs. I added some dots and splatters and then wished I hadn’t …but hey! Its for fun.

Well that’s all from me today. I’m off for a cuppa.

Take care,

Flo x

  1. Your background is simply fabulous and I like your white dots and tiny splatters. I think they are a great finishing touch. Your Kokeshi doll looks fabulous, she brings serenity and clam to your creation. I love it. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at we love stamping and for using the stencilling option xx

  4. Where is the hit and miss ?????? It’s brilliant I really love your doll she is resplendent amidst the fabulous background. What don’t you like about the splatters? I think its adds dimension and I just adore the colour of her kimono. You should make more cards most definitely.

    Yours as always PF


    1. No, I thought the pink dots which were supposed to pick up the flowers looked a bit wishy washy. It is a great stamp. I only send 4 cards a year!! LOL!
