Pretty Stems

I love the "Stem Silhouettes" stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalogue. It is so versatile. This is a quick and simple card, this set makes it easy to get elegant results.

Ink the branch image with your Stampin' Up! markers. I used Certainly Celery first, then went over the berries with Regal Rose. Stamp onto Very Vanilla Cardstock then tie Light Pink Organdy and Silver Cord around the image before matting onto Pretty in Pink card stock.

Stamp another of the branch images along the side of the card using Versamark ink. Remember, this magical ink will give you a beautiful watermark effect - it's great for heat embossing too!

The sentiment was stamped in Mellow Moss ink at the bottom of the card. Layer everything together with SNAIL adhesive, and you're done!

I love these colours together, they are so pretty. Don't forget, Stem Silhouettes is only available until the end of this month. The Pink Organdy, and Silver Cord is also retiring at the end of March.

  1. This is so elegant and beautiful!!

  2. I love it! It's so fresh and pretty. I'm not a huge fan of Pretty in Pink, but in that small amount, paired with vanilla and celery, you've made it look fantastic. This is an inspired card.
