Delicate Blossoms

  Hey all!

The wonderful Lily Pad challenges has the next installment of Virginia's View going on and the inspiration photo is lovely. Virginia always picks fantastic photos for us :)

As soon as I saw the photo I thought of Hero Art's Delicate Blossoms stamp set. If you own this stamp set and didn't use it to enter the challenge you are amazing! All I could see was that stamp so I HAD to use it, I had no choice. 

Kept it pretty simple with some copic coloring and paper piecing. Yes, I said copic. What?! A few weeks ago I owned ZERO copics but after the awesome Libby shared a groupon for a store that carries them I have finally started my collection. Exciting!! Thanks Libby!

The sentiment was originally stamped with Pear Tart (Memento) and Festive Berries distress ink but it just looked like Christmas to me. I decided to make it a colorful shadow. I think it worked out pretty well and thank God because I already had everything else adhered :)

I am officially off work for the next five days so I'm hoping for lots o' crafty time. Hope you can get some too!


  1. It's gorgeous, Kelly! Love the pink and green panels and your poppies look so beautiful - (yay for Copics!) Awesome cutting too! So glad you played along with us at Lily Pad Cards! :)

  2. Hey Kelly, just found your site through the Virginia's View Challenge. Beautiful card! I love how the flowers divide the background colors. Whew, glad the re-stamping in black worked!

  3. Hi Kelly, your card is gorgeous. I love how this turned out and your design is great.

  4. This is such a beautiful take on the challenge, Kelly! I love your composition and the splash of colors! The detailed shading with the sentiment is FABULOUS! Thanks SO much for playing with us at Lily Pad Challenge!

  5. Super sweet! Great colours!
