CCEE Stampers-Recipe

CCEE1315

This week Kathy Bradley, as hostess, asked the CCEE Stampers to do a card following a recipe:
In addition to your card base, use two designer papers, 1 circle (oops--I  used more than one if you count my stamped image), one square, and whatever else your heart desires.

We hope you'll join us this week and let us see your project. Check out the rest of the team's cards and upload your card using the inlinkz button.

Recipe:
Stamps-Inspired by Stamping/Flowers Bloom (sentiment), Sorry I don't know the name of my stamped image. Wish I did. My sis gave a group of them to me and didn't remember where she got them.   They seem to be a set of purple and white circle foam-like stamps. I have searched the internet for them and came up empty. If you recognize the image and know the maker,  I would appreciate if you let me know.
Paper: PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Rich Razzleberry cs, dp is Prima/Botanical Collection 6 x 6 paper pad
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versa Magic Perfect Plumeria for inking around sentiment

Oh wow - what a gorgeous shabby chic floral beauty you cooked up from Kathy's recipe, Brenda. I love it all, but am particularly drawn to the double layer of white.

I only see one layered circle, so you followed instructions perfectly :) This is quite a beautiful card with a vintage feel, and I love the delicate butterfly and crinkled flower! That tiny pearl accent is just the perfect finishing touch to this beauty! Well done!
Stay safe in those approaching storms! We had wicked thunderstorms last night with heavy rain, but I have a feeling this is only the beginning!

Very pretty! I like how you framed that pink (IBS) blossom. :)

Hey, I just took a look at your yard on your Pinterest board. Wow. I'm jealous of all your trees and greenery. Looks like a paradise, but as a gardener, I know that comes with a lot of work too. Great job on it.

Kathy Bradley said...

Your card is so pretty and elegant! Your DP is lovely and soft and your flower against the die looks awesome. And, your butterfly is delicate!
