SUOC57 – Blooming with Kindness again

The challenge over on Stampin' Up! Only Challenges is an "Elegant Autumn" card.  When I was thinking "elegant", I thought of flowers…mums…and pulled out my Blooming with Kindness stamp set.


I wanted to use a couple colors of ink on the image to make them natural looking.  I chose More Mustard and Cajun Craze…almost the colors of my fall mums out front of the house!



  1. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Cajun Craze folded in half to make base card.
  2. 4 x 5 1/4 checked print from Orchard Harvest DSP.
  3. 3 1/2 x 4 piece of Very Vanilla.
  4. I inked up the Blooming with Kindness flower with More Mustard, then used a Sponge Dauber to apply Cajun Craze ink around randomly, then stamped.  Repeated two more times.
  5. I added 1/4 x 4" strips of Champagne Glimmer Paper along each side of the Very Vanilla and adhered to the front of the card.
  6. A double bow of Linen Thread tied inside the Bronze Button
  7. 3/4 x 3" strip of More Mustard, stamped with Warmest Wishes in the same set, with Cajun Craze ink, cut a flag end.
  8. Add greeting and button to front of card with Mini Glue Dots!


So, I think it is "elegant"…what about you?  Make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team creations over on SUO Challenges and play along!
