Daisies & Lace

One thing I love about the Retro Rubber Challenge blog is that it makes me reconsider and reuse old favourites - and for the latest sketch challenge:

 I turned back to one of my 'best of the best' stamp sets - Grateful Bunch - one of the very first stamps I bought when I discovered the wonderful world of card making (from the 2016- 2017 catalogue). Paper Craft Crew provided me with a lovely set of very spring-like colours:

 - entirely suitable down here in New Zealand, where we're seeing daffodil plants edge their way above the cold ground's surface - a promise that spring will be here soon!

Stampin' Up card, (Thick Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Whisper White), ink (Tempting Turquoise, Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black), Stamp set (Grateful Bunch and Mixed Borders for sentiment), Daisy punch, Glitter enamel dots
Other products: francheville diamantes and Sizzix Tattered Floral thinlits.


  1. I love this stamp set! It really was one of the best and I love how you used this color challenge for it. You have wonderful texture and dimension in your card. Thank you for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew this week!

  2. There's a lot more going on in this card than it first appears. I like the sense of depth you've achieved by the different levels of flower and the two types of leaves. I like the boldness of the Lemon Lime Twist with the Turquoise - and of course, Delicate Details is a big favourite of mine. Thank you for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge this week.

  3. Oh - I just realised that the lace is not Delicate Details but part of the Grateful Bunch. Oops.

    1. I couldn't cheat on the Grateful Bunch lace, could I?

  4. Grateful Bunch! Oh, how I missed thee! This card is beautiful and perfect for that stamp set. Love how you used the lace, too. I don't think I ever did but now I think I shall! It's so pretty in Tempting Turquoise. Thank you for playing with us at Retro Rubber and hope you can join us again soon.

  5. Gorgeous creation; those lacy borders are stunning! A beautiful creation all round! Thanks for sharing this with us at Retro Rubber this week!

  6. Your card is amazing! The colors on the flowers, the lace are just perfect. Thanks for sharing with Retro Rubber.

  7. This card is amazing. The flowers and that stamped border are just awesome. Thanks for playing along this time at Retro Rubber. Claire DT
