Stamping With Friends - A Bouquet of Flowers Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop as we share what projects we are currently working on to inspire you! You will be visiting with our Design Team Members as they share their wonderful projects and ideas to help spark your creativity.  This time our theme is the products that are retiring from the 2021-2023 Annual Catalogue.

My card today uses the amazing Wisteria Wishes Bundle.  This was one of the first bundle that I knew I had to have!  I love wisteria flowers!  I've used the new Orchid Oasis In Color for my card - Wow!  love it!

For this card I've turned the flower image upside down and created what look like grape hyacinths.  This bundle is so flexible!


  1. Cut Orchid Oasis Card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on scoreline to form card base.
  2. Cut Vellum Card stock 3 3/4" x 5"
  3. Stamp image on back using Orchid Oasis ink.
  4. Let dry completely and then adhere to card base.  Apply adhesive in the middle of the Vellum Card Stock only so it isn't visible.
  5. Cut Metallic Mesh 4 1/4" and adhere to the middle of the card base.  
  6. Cut 4th smallest Stitched Rectangle Die from Basic White card stock.
  7. Stamp stems using Evening Evergreen ink on bottom
  8. Stamp sentiment at top using Orchid Oasis Ink
  9. Stamp flowers on top of stems using Orchid Oasis Ink.
  10. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  11. Adhere Pastel Pearls.
  12. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  13. Stamp stems using Evening Evergreen ink on the left hand side (partially off the card stock).
  14. Stamp flower image on top of stems using Orchid Oasis Ink.

You can find all of the supplies for this card in my Online Store.

Now it's time to be inspired by all of the amazing projects in our Blog Hop!
