Blessed Painted Blooms Blessed by God and Painted Blooms Cardmaking Ideas
Blessed by God paired with Painted Blooms DSP
using Pacific Point and Wild Wasabi
Isn't it funny when you look at color combos in your life and think, wouldn't THAT be nice on a card?! OK. I might be one of the few that actually thinks that, but I'm sure you know what I mean! I was giving my daughter her snack a while ago, and my bright blue sweatshirt with her green snack bowl really caught my eye.
I got up to Craft Central at nap time, and made these cards using Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper and the Blessed By God stamp set. The colors pop together, and are incorporated into the blue flowered print in the paper set! Blessed by God stamp set is in the Annual Catalog, and is a good set for weddings, baptism, friendship and a variety of other occasions. (Anniversary, retirement, congratulations - it works, look at the set!) Blessed by God and Painted Blooms Cardmaking Ideas
For the first card, I used a Wild Wasabi base, a strip of Pacific Point punched with the Scallop Border Punch, and some of my Island Indigo Chevron ribbon. Yes, it does match mostly because of the shades of blue in the flowers. I ripped out a section of the Painted Blooms DSP and tucked a white piece stamped in Pacific Point, sponged on the edges with the Wild Wasabi. Blessed by God and Painted Blooms Cardmaking Ideas
The second card has a Pacific Point card base, with accent panels of Wild Wasabi, and some added Candy Dots and colored rhinestones. I used the Corner Rounder punch to add some focus to the center panel. Blessed by God and Painted Blooms Cardmaking Ideas
The third card also has the strong blue Pacific Point base, with more scallop border punches this time in Wasabi. I used more of the chevron ribbon, and accented with some rhinestones. Blessed by God and Painted Blooms Cardmaking Ideas
The last card I tried a 2 step stamping style with the crosses in the set. I stamped the solid cross in the lighter Daffodil Delight, and over it stamped the flowered cross in Wild Wasabi on a triple layer panel. I used 3 strips of the Painted Blooms DSP across the Wild Wasabi card base, and wrapped the space between the strips with some Daffodil Delight 1/2" Seam Binding.

I think these are bright and happy cards, a perfect way to send someone your special wishes. What do you think of the color combo?

Happy Crafting!
