Petite posies

It's been awhile since I used any of my Rubber Stamp Tapestry sets.  If you're not familiar with them, they're mostly small peg stamps although they do have some larger sentiments and now fabric stamps.  I have 4 shoe boxes full and they do work up into nice, easy cards that take no time.  A friend has a birthday near Valentine's Day so thought this heart-shaped wreath in pinky-corals was fitting.  RST promotes using Versacolor cubes and I do have quite a few but decided to try distress inks for a different look.
This set is called Cherry Blossoms.  Isn't it dainty?  I used Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive and Frayed Burlap instead of the 4 colors they suggested.  There are some Diamond Stickles scattered about the flower centers.  The sentiment is also by RST.

I love this Doily Lace Trim punch by Martha Stewart.  I just have to remember to punch all the way down as it seems to almost be like a 2-step punch.  Either that or the Bazzill is a bit thicker to punch than some of my other cardstock.

One of the tricks to getting a nicely shaped wreath is to draw a light pencil line first.  This time I cut a foam heart using a Sizzix die then stamped it with Antique Linen on the paper first.  You can barely see it in the actual card but it gave me lines to follow. 


  1. Very pretty! And I love that lace punch, looks great!

  2. I've seen those tapestry stamps at conventions, and I've often wondered if I would like them. After all, it seems like there is only one thing you can do with them, and that one thing has a LOT of steps.

    I do like the shape here, and your hint is a really good one. Do you think these stamps are a good value?

  3. thats really pretty and the colours do look amazing. beautiful card
