May your life be like a wildflower

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I randomly stamped the dandelion seeds from the Creative Expressions Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set onto some Milk Card using Meadow Adirondack Dye Ink. I dried it with my heat tool and then popped it inside the Spellbinders Elite M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and then inked around the edged with Meadow Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I dusted a piece of Milk Card with my Anti-Static Bag and then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Black Aurora Embossing Powder from the Metallics & Darks Set. I wiped the excess mica away with a dry wetwipe. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge and inked through the die with Meadow.

I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Fancy Ribbon Threader dies out of green card and inked through the die with Meadow ink. I threaded some Moss Green American Seam Binding through the slits in the die cut. I tied a bow using 2 lengths of the ribbon. I made a flower using the Bitty Blossoms die set, inking through the die with Meadow before rolling it.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Good morning Julia,
    What a lovely change a card in green. I really am liking the selection being posted lately they are really inspiring making me look at smaller stamps for making backgrounds.
