Blended Bloom Birthday - sponged

It's the weekend, woohoo ~

Thought I'd pop in quickly and share a few cards I made a couple of weeks back.  I actually sat down to make a card for an upcoming birthday and instead got distracted by Pinterest - please tell me I'm not the only person this happens to?  Anyway... I spotted this card and wanted to give my Blended Bloom stamp a whirl with sponges.  I had so much fun I made three!  They were super quick and easy.  The colour combinations are only limited by your imagination.

I heat embossed my bloom with White e/p and sponged my colours (from the inside out) before fussy cutting.  This allows you a bit more freedom with your sponge and/or dauber.

My first card uses Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive.

Next is Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, with a very light touch of Early Espresso in the centre.

Then I tried Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight, with a touch of Blackberry Bliss in the centre and Old Olive leaves.

I had only ever coloured this bloom with Blendabilities so it was really nice to do a little something different with it. Hope you like.


  1. WOW!! I am so going to have to try this! Love this look, P. Just beautiful.

  2. No wonder you made three, they look spectactular!! I especially like the last one, the blending of those colours look beautiful. And your not the only one to get distracted with Pinterest. I quite often go there to look for one thing, pin it and then when it comes up showing someone elses' board its pinned on I have a look at that too, pin some more on and on it goes...... Its a fantastic place for inspiration but boy does it suck the time out of my day!

  3. may have just inspired me to get this stamp out of the plastic wrap fm convention and use it. I LOVE the look of these......even the pink one....hee hee hee. PERFECT job ooxx

  4. All stunning Patrice, and no, you are not alone. Pinterest is the best way of avoiding jobs, but LOVE the inspiration it provides.
    Our daughter returned from her Canberra trip yesterday, and you really turned on the weather for them! They had a wonderful but exhausting time - highlights, The Mint and The War Memorial on Remembrance Day

  6. Oh wow P these caught my eye straight away this morning, love the colours, the transitions the intensity - just gorgeous! Like Christine I am so going to try this! Thanks for the sunday morning inspiration :) xxx

  7. These look so cool! I love, love, love the first one!

  8. Oh my goodness these flowers are totally stunning Patrice! Like Kim, I love how intense these colours are!
