Blooms & Butterflies Challenge

It’s always good to challenge yourself no matter what it is you’re doing.  So, it’s time to jump-start my creativity by joining in the Blooms & Butterflies color challenge using:

I used the new stamp set High Tide from the new Occasions Catalog to create this card. I really like the sayings and this stamp set is very versatile.


  1. Cut 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ Whisper White and fold in 1/2.  This will be the card base.
  2. Cut 1 – 5 1/4″ x 4″ Night of Navy and adhere this to the card base.
  3. Cut 1  –  3 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ Whisper White.
  4. Stamp sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black leaving room for the lighthouse.
  5. Stamp the lighthouse in Night of Navy.
  6. Stamp the birds in Memento Tuxedo Black.
  7. Using the various sizes of the single grass, I ink the stamp in Cucumber Crush, then stamp on a scrap paper then onto the image to keep it from being so dark. repeat several time.
  8. Edge the bottom of the card using a sponge in Cucumber Crush.
  9. Edge the remaining card in Night of Navy.
  10. Adhere the image to the base of the card.

Tip:  If using Whisper White as a base card, I always stamp my inside say prior to any assembly in case I mess up. Also if you use the Shimmer White cardstock it will add another element to you card by sparkling at little in the light.

I hope you enjoyed this card!
