Stampin' Up! Sea Inspired Bunch of Blossoms

When I started this card, my intention was to use the colors from the challenge at Pals Paper Arts and make a floral card.  I have to admit, I don't pull out Marina Mist as often as I should, but I loved it with Pink Pirouette and Smoky Slate.  I pulled out my new Bunch of Blossoms set and chose a few stamps and went to work designing a card.  My daughter commented that she liked the sea shell stamps I was using and I realized that the stamps could indeed look like a flower/starfish and blossom/shell.  I love it when stamps can be used for more than just their intended purpose, the more uses, the better the value of the set! To really make the card more sea inspired to go along with the Global Design Project Nautical Theme Challenge #GDP047, I chose the Seaside embossing folder with a Marina Mist card base to look like water.  The pink layer is punched with the Banner Triple punch on both ends.

  1. Shauna, I would not have noticed the nautical likeness to this set without seeing your sweet card! It certainly did make a great designer paper on its own. Thanks so much for playing along with the PPA color challenge this week. Hope to see you in the gallery often.

  2. Woah, I never realized these petals looked like shells before! What a great idea! Your homemade patterned paper is so sweet and your entire card is simple and elegant. Lovely!

  3. Shauna, you are so clever that petal does look like a shell! Thanks for joining us this week x
