maine blueberry flowers

I found a sketch over at Little Treasures and thought it would be fun to use some Maine Blueberry paper with it and of course some big ribbon! My flower brads have been ignored for some time too, so I thought I would add those and put 1/2" circles behind them to make them stand out a bit more against the patterned paper. Another tip when adhering cardstock with large brads to another sheet of cardstock - put some mini glue dots on the back of each brad and then add all your adhesive. The glue dots really hold the brads to the bottom sheet of cardstock and it won't lift off the paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

recipe -
stamps: pocket silhouettes
ink: bashful blue, not quite navy
paper: stamper's select white (papertrey, ink), not quite navy cardstock, maine blueberry dsp
accessories: flower brads, 1" double stitched bashful blue grosgrain ribbon, 1/2" circle punch, stampin' dimensionals, mini glue dots


  1. Very cute. I've been hoarding the brads too! And great ribbon knot!

  2. I've been stalking your blog for a little while now-love it! This is so cute! Now I'm going to have to buy Maine Blueberry paper before it's gone!
    thanks for sharing,

  3. I just found your blog a little while ago. I like your style and check you out often. This card is beautiful! Thank you for sharing with us.

  4. Great use of Pocket Silhouettes. My fav stamp set.

  5. Hi Karen.
    I just came across your blog from splitcoaststampers.com - and you've got some great ideas and projects.
    I do have a quick question about your blog (so I hope you don't mind me asking). I've had my blog for a few years now and just want to get an updated look happening.
    I was wondering ho you added your "gallery", "stamps", etc links to your sidebar. You made those images yourself too I'm assuming, correct?

    Thanks so much!

  6. Another fantastic card Karen - love these colours together. Wish we had this paper over here in Australia. The ribbon adds a lovely touch to this card. Well done!
