Pear Blossoms

Hi! Today I want to share a card made with Sketched Pear Blossoms Digi904 Digital Stamp Set by Sparkle N Sprinkle. I used the same set to make a background pattern paper and focal image. I also used an older rubber stamp Garden Silhouette 600 to add the sentiment for my card. 

Materials used:
StampsSketched Pear Blossoms Digi904, Garden Silhouette 600;
GlittersSea Spray [G1023], Shell Pink [G1023];
Embossing PowdersBronze Rose [EP335];
InksVersamark [VM001];
Dies: Nellie Snellen (Photo Frames);
Adhesives1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape [SAT01], Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky], Medium Nuvo Glue Pen [203N];
Cardstock: White, Pattern Paper;
EmbellishmentsYellow Bird Nuvo Glitter Drops [769N];

I used the pre-colored digi image from the Sketched Pear Blossoms set. I re-sized it to suit my card, printed it out and fussy cut it with a narrow white edge all around. Shell Pink Glitter has adhered to the blossoms with Sakura Glue Pen. I also added dots of Yellow Bird Nuvo Glitter Drops to the center of big white blossoms.

I made a frame behind the branch to help the image stand out from the busy background. For that, I adhered three die-cut frames on top of each other and covered the inner side with Medium Nuvo Glue Pen and Sea Spray Glitter. After that, I added vellum behind the frame. 

To make my background, I took two pre-colored blossom images from the stamp set. I made several copies of them, re-sized some and rotated and move them around until I had a nice looking pattern. I also changed the opacity of the entire image and then I printed it on top of the wooden pattern paper. 
Shell Pink Glitter has adhered to the stamens all over the paper with Sakura Glue Pen.
For my glitter matting layer, I adhered 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to edges of the cardstock, adhered the pattern paper in the center and covered rest of the tape with Sea Spray Glitter. 
The sentiment is from Garden Silhouette Stamp Set. It's stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Bronze Rose Embossing Powder.

I liked this card, so I made another similar one. I used a slightly different wooden pattern paper to print my blossoms on. Instead of the stamped sentiment, I used die cut word. 

Three die cut words are cut from white cardstock and one out of Sticker Paper  [99558]. Sticker Paper word was covered with Radiant Gold Nuvo Gilding Flakes and then I adhered all of die cut words on top of each other. To add a sparkle to the word, I covered it with Yellow Bird Nuvo Glitter Drops. Matting layer is also covered with the same Gilding Flakes.

On the following photo, you can see how the same blossom pattern looks on two different pattern paper.

I'd love to see what you can create. Make a project and share it on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge over on Facebook.
