Best Blossoms, best blossoms!

Hi All, I love this set! I got a bundle of stamps a few years ago from a cyber friend in California! I was so grateful, but none of them have their label on. I had no idea what this retired set was!! Nancy Riley from "I Stamp" blog recognized it!!! It's "Best Blossoms" I was so thankful for Nancy's "eagle eye"!!! (Thanks again, Nancy!)

Several people have asked mee if I had ued a crimper on my base car. no I didh't!
I actually made the lines with a roller. It's not by Stampin Up. It was just a real cheapy roller. It gave the "crimped" look.

My base card is made with Old Olive cardstock. I stamped the leaves on the base with White Craft Ink. I stamped off twice before stamping on the card. I also rolled the horizontal lines were made by stamping off with a line roller. I applied the line around the edges with the roller as well. I then cut a Rose Red layer and
a Very Vanilla layer. I stamped my flowers in Rose Red and my leaves. I wanted a soft look, so again, I stamped off about 3 times. I made a punch with the word window out of Old Olive and added a yellow mini-brad. Verse is from the Sincere Salutations. I hope you've enjoyed this. I like how it turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by. It was really fun to make.

Take care and happy stamping!!!

Stampin hugs,

It's called Best Blossoms. I believe it was a SAB set from 2006?

Very pretty card! Is that crimping in the middle? If so, please share how you managed to crimp just in that one spot.
