Blue Flower Card – ATS Bingo Challenge

Morning everyone.  This is a really quick post as I wanted to enter the Addicted To Stamps Challenge.  This weeks challenge is Bingo. I have chosen the bottom line of the bingo chart Blue, Button, Flower.  For full details of the challenge and the DT’s inspirational pieces click here

Here’s my little card.


I have just mat and layered the base and added some frills.  For the flowers: I used a navy marvy marker and stamped onto Judikins glossy card stock.  I then just cut these out and just sponged on some distressing inks around the outside edges. Stamps used Chocolate Baroque.

Now wasn’t that quick and painless!! lol!

Happy crafting everyone.

Best Wishes Florence x

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! The card itself is a present to be cherished. I am not sure about the “quick and painless” though. As gifted as I am in the kitchen, I’m all thumbs with crafts. 😉

  7. Hello From A Very Wet Scotland
    Beautiful deep blue (reminds me of pottery) and your layering is perfection.

    • Hi Lynne. What I would give for some wet weather at the moment!! lol! We are never satisfied hey! Funny you should mention pottery. The day before I made this I was looking at a Welsh Dresser in a House and Garden type magazine and it was full of delftware so maybe that was in the back of my mind. I missed the Rafa match!! I couldn’t believe it. It probably was the match of the tournament. I’m shouting for Novak now. Thank you for your lovely comments. Great to hear from you.

    • Hi Gisele. Great to hear from you. I don’t do fussy cutting. If you look real close I cut the flowers out really quickly and the DI’s cover up all my sins 🙂 Thank you for your lovely comments.

Very unusual for this time of year and a bane to the firefighting efforts. oh, by the way, if ever your lovely things are lonely and feeling left out you can send them to me…I’ll take good care of them LOL

    • Hi there. Hope all is well. Lovely to hear from you. If I don’t use the cards they go into a box and get divided up amongst my friends. I do a swap with them for their “cast offs”. Things like broken jewellery and bits of fabric etc. I also make batches of cards for our Doctor’s wife. Just as a little thank you because they look after us so well. It’s very hard to find cards to buy where I live.

  10. Good morning Florence, what a lovely surprise ! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful card with us at Addicted to stamps. I just adore the tone on tone colouring and the fabulous layout. Looks like a lot of fussing cutting went on here doesn’t sound like a quick card to me. Love the layering and the pretty lace, thanks for sharing with us and good luck !
