Three Challenges in one card!

Two blog posts in one day, it must be Easter! Last night I went over to my friend Val's to play, (oops, I mean to have a creative crafting session). I wrote down a few challenges for inspiration and we had a go. My card combines three challenges:

I must say I did find it a challenge, I would normally have teamed that colour selection with very vanilla rather than white and the card needed to be clean and simple, (put the sponge daubers away Anne-Marie!) but after a lot of dithering here is my card:
 The stamp set I used was Tea Shoppe. I inked the cup stamp using raspberry ripple and chocolate chip, (doesn't that sound yummy), markers then spritzed with water and stamped onto primrose petal card, then fussy cut it out. Two lots of flowers are stamped directly onto the card and the third one was cut out. I did some faux stitching with the raspberry ripple marker and white gel pen to frame the image a bit more. The scallop trim was made using one of my favourite punches the dotted scallop ribbon border punch.


  1. The cup looks amazing in this mix of colours... super card.
    Thanks so much
    Happy Easter!
