Eastern Blooms Farewell

Eastern Blooms Stamp Set

 

Today’s card was made with the Eastern Blooms stamp set and the "for you" greeting from All Holidays. Both of these stamp sets are retiring and will no longer be available after June 30th.

I did a workshop for a group of ladies last year and as I often do, I asked them to name their favorite stamp set. Almost every one answered with "Eastern Blooms". I have to admit I was surprised by the answer but I use this set alot more often now. Because of the different sizes and styles of flowers as well as the floral branch, there are lots of different looks that can be created with just this set.

To make this card, I stamped the largest flower from the Eastern Blooms stamp set in Whisper White Craft ink and then used a sponge dauber to apply Marina Mist ink to the center. The greeting was also stamped in Marina Mist ink and punched out with the 1-3/8" x 5/8" oval punch (retiring). I layered the punched oval onto a larger 1-3/4" x 7/8" punched oval of Marina Mist cardstock.

I added Marina Mist 5/8" grosgrain ribbon (retiring – on sale for $7.13) topped with Whisper White 1/8" taffeta ribbon (retiring) along the bottom of the card before adhering the punched ovals.
