Boutique Blossom - Single Stamp from Stampin' Up!

You might have noticed in my sidebar the information about Single Stamps.  This gorgeous flower stamp is one of that very group. It's called Boutique Blossom and is available as a clear mount stamp until 31 August.  It's a mainly solid stamp and so it's great for trying out the rock and roll technique. 
  • Choose two co-ordinating colours.
  • Ink your stamp in the lighter of two colours.
  • Roll the edges of the stamp on the darker of your two chosen colours.
  • Stamp your image to obtain a two-tone image. 
I used Elegant Eggplant and the soon to arrive C...... C..... for this example and I also added some Elegant Eggplant spots to the centre of the flower with a marker pen.  You'll also notice the embossing folder is new!  But you'll find out more about that in due course!  The border is stamped with the border stamp from Summer Silhouettes and punched with the scallop trim border punch.  A pleated doily, faceted button and whisper white bakers twine along with a spot of dazzling details (no matter how many times I took a picture of this card I just couldn't get the glitter detail or stop the whisper white glare so just believe me....!) add the embellishments and a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments with my new word window punch. Why new? Well those of you who know my craftroom now that it is a work in progress site 24/7 and so the old one........well it will live again one day I'm sure!!!
