Crisp Sahara Cake Blossom

Another challenge card.  I really seem to be into those the last few weeks.  They keep me really thinking and getting out of my comfort zone.

I honestly didn't think I would care for this color combo, but it has turned out beautifully, especially with this stamp set!

Stamps: You've Got This
Ink: Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Crisp Cantaloupe
Paper: Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Shimmer White
Accessories: Sahara Sand Lace Trim, Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker's Twine, Pearls, Clear Wink of Stella
Tools: Blender Pens, MISTI, Glue Dots

Stamped the crosshatch background in Sahara Sand on Whisper White.  Set aside.  On Shimmer White, stamped the blossom in Basic Black.  I used a blender pen with Crisp cantaloupe on the petals, and Crumb Cake on the leaves and stem.  I went over them once to coat with color, and a second time to add some shading. Cut out by hand.  Wrapped lace trim along bottom edge of Whisper White layer, adhering the blossom over top.  Used a glue dot to adhere a bow to the stem. Sentiment stamped in black, and a few pearls for added bling.


  1. Very pretty. I keep thinking about getting that set.

    1. It's a really great and useful set. And it's hard to make anything but a beautiful card with it! You won't regret it!
