Build a Blossom -- Love it!

Wow!  I so love the Stampin' Up set Build a Blossom.  It's great on its own, but pair it with the Blossom Petals Punch and the results are fantastic!

The first time I sat down to make a card with this set I was hooked.  That card is long gone (to my aunt), but this one is similar.  The flower, which uses the biggest blossom, really has an impact.  I can't even tell you how many different cards I've made with this flower and no matter what color I use for the flower it turns out great.

And this is just a one layer flower.  You can have multiple layers, using the same petal again or using a different shaped petal.  I'll show you some of those another time.

Believe it or not, the background on this card is Daffodil Delight Patterns Designer Series Paper.  Somewhere between my photophraphy and photo editing the colors became a little muted.  The flower is Perfect Plum and the leaves are Garden Green.  It's all on a Whisper White base.  The colors make a very cheerful combination in person.

There are 12 stamps in the Build a Blossom set. The Blossom Petals Punch punches four sizes of leaves/petals -- either all at once or feed in a smaller piece of cardstock to punch what you need. You can mix and match the stamps and punch parts to make a variety of flowers and leaves.

Both of these items are in the Occasions mini catalogue, so be sure to get them before they're gone.  You can order yours by contacting me at the e-mail address in the header or by leaving a comment on this post.

Did you notice the watermark on my card?  I used My Digital Studio to create it.  It was really easy to make.

Guess that's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to leave a comment letting me know what you think about the Build a Blossom set and Blossom Petals Punch.
