Floral Celebration – Celebrating You

Today I am playing with a new stamp set (to me) Floral Celebration from Close To My Heart.  I received this stamp set as a winner of a random draw from the Double Trouble team.  It only seems fitting that I use it on the newest Double Trouble Challenge (#111).

Additional Inspiration: Sketch: Tuesday Morning (#658), Theme: Inspiration Station (#30) for Flowers and Color, Supplies: Heart2Heart (May) for Stamp Set and Paper and Partner: Crafter’s Cafe (#285).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Cinnamon Cider cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (5¼” x 4”) Copper and Kraft Striped piece of paper from Craft Pad – Fall Foils that I have in my stash of pretty things.
    • The sentiment, Celebrating You, was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with Black Embossing Powder.
  • Top and Bottom Cross Strips: (5¼” x 1¼”) Copper and Kraft Dotted piece of paper from the same paper pack.
  • Focal Image – Flowers: (2¼” x 2¼”) Copper Foiled piece of paper from the same paper pack.
    • The Flower image was stamped with Versamark ink and also heat-set with Black Embossing Powder.
    • The Floral images were fussy-cut with Paper Snips.

All of the elements were adhered to match the sketch and the Flowers were popped up with Dimensionals.

What fun creating a card with stuff in your stash…the copper foiling adds just enough celebratory bling to Stripes and Dots!

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!
