I got the cutest little Stampendous clear stamp set for ½ off at my local craft store recently so I thought I’d share a card made with it:
The focal image cherries actually had a background of little cherries and triple-dots that I thought was too busy, so I cut the main cherries out because I thought that was easier than trying to mask or use markers. I did save the background though, so if I ever want to stamp it in its original form I can.
I am so loving this Papertrey Ink set Polka Dot Basics. I used a bigger dot on the red cardstock, then a smaller dot on the green cardstock. It wasn’t too hard to keep lining up the stamp, and even if the spacing was a tad off, you can barely tell! I also used a little single dot to stamp in each of the scallops, and then I used a needle to pierce in the middle of each dot.
BTW – this is my first attempt at making a ribbon blossom following Pam Bassett’s tutorial. It’s not *quite* a blossom because I didn’t use enough ribbon bits, but I’m still pretty happy with it anyway because it adds such a cute touch. Thanks so much to Pam for her awesome tutorial! I’ll definitely be making more of these!
Other materials used: markers from Copic; white cardstock from Georgia Pacific; all Nestabilities from Spellbinders; white polka dot ribbon from May Arts; all other ribbon from local craft store; white ink from Tsukineko; circle punch (to make "ticket" corners) from Stampin' Up!; red half beads unknown.
