Mixed Bunch Get Well

Hello Stamp Friends!

Sorry it's been a while since my last post. First I had to get cards done for a swap and then I had to make 3 projects for another stamp date.

Today, I would like to share the card that I made for the swap. I got the idea for this card from Jennifer Weide (Sunflower Stamper). I fell in love with her card when I saw it and thought I'd do my best to change it, but try to live up to the beauty of the origina card:) I chose to use In-Colors for the flowers and proceeded to stamp the boldest flower in the mixed bunch stamp set. I'm not sure what the problem was, but I couldn't get a clean image, even after sanding the block, etc. So I had to make it using the punch with the card stock. I was able to get a nice flower center, so I punched them out and added some pearls. It still looked a little plain to me, so I just used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to add some texture to the layer in the background. I got a lot of compliments on it, so that made me really happy.

Supplies Used-

Stamps: Mixed Bunch & Sincere Salutations

Paper: Blush Blossom, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Basic Gray & Whisper White

Ink: Blush Blossom, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder & VersaMark

Other: Big Shot & Bigz Frame, Oval Scallop die, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Whisper White 3/8” ribbon, Punches (Blossom & 1” circle), White EP & Stampin' Dimensionals©

Since making this card, I have exchanged the stamp set and would like to show you how my original card came out. I will be back tomorrow to share it.

  1. Hi -- I found your blog from your post on splitcoast. Love the idea for the vase of flowers -- now I'll have to go buy that die!

    My favorite set right now is Mixed Bunch as well but I have to say, it was a long time before Lovely As A Tree was surpassed -- it's probably still my all time fave.

  2. This is such a great card! Good idea. I also like your stamp room! It is much like mine : )

    I came over from Stampin Connection. I am your newest follower. Would love for you to visit mine too!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Have a great day!
