Regarding Dahlias

Do you love dahlias?  I do!  They are such an old fashioned flower that I remember always being in our garden when growing up.  I don't have any in my garden at the moment, but it's on my to plant list when we get working in the back yard garden!

So it was with no coincidence when I saw the Regarding Dahlia stamp set in the 2013-2014 Catalogue and fell in love.  I just love the BIG flower stamp of the Dahlia and how versatile you can make it.  I love it can be used for background stamping and more!  So when I found lots of inspiration on Pinterest, I just had to make my own!

I had two lovely ladies join Stampin' Up! last month, so I decided to use this design as my welcome cards.  I love the new In Colours, so of course decided to use them!  The first card uses Coastal Cabana, don't you just love it!

I've stamped with coordinating ink onto the background and then onto Whisper White.  I've added some embossing to make a feature.  Now that I look at this up close, wish my stamping of Welcome was a bit straighter!

 The second card uses Pistachio Pudding.  It kind of reminds me of the retired Certainly Celery but just as adorable.  Makes the card look quite differently too!  Amazing how colour can change a look!

The supplies I used:
Inks: Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana & Basic Black
Papers: Whisper White, Coastal Cabana & Pistachio Pudding
Stamps: Regarding Dahlia & Workshop Words
Accessories: Big Shot, Window Frames Collection, Designer Frames and rhinestones
