What a beautiful apple blossom this stamp is from Stampin' Up! Versatile enough to use for greetings cards other than Easter, I'm coloring it today as I have need for a Sympathy card.
Stampin' Up! He is Risen
Plant life must be my favorite go-to stamp. I don't often reach for critters or people although I own them both. Botanicals are so versatile it's the perfect stamp for all occasion cards which I enjoy building! I stamped this apple blossom in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored in a few new Peach hues of Copic Sketch Markers.
Aren't they a gorgeous pallet! I used a few more earth tones and B00 for the background but this pile purchased specifically for this stamp set. I usually decide on the cards entire color scheme based on the stamp. Since my blossoms are peach and the leaves green, I reached for card materials in Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding.
I would prefer my seam binding ribbon a paler shade, it's Old Olive and the closest I could get to Pistachio Pudding. Many of you know I'm fussy but I'm going to let this slide! One blossom above is stamped and colored a second time to add dimension and the baby blossoms and flower centers all have a coat of Crystal Effects, such a pretty touch I really like that detail.
Off to the mail. I'm sorry to hear my friend's Dad has passed. She's in my prayers and I hope this card will let her know I'm thinking of her. Thanks for stopping by your friendship too is important to me!
