Bold Pop Designs

The inspiration for this card came from a "Clean and Simple" card class I took a few months ago.  No it is not a windmill.  The stamp and die set used is from Hero Arts/Sizzix "Bold Pop Designs".   This card was made for Fond Memories in Walnut Grove and can be seen there.  I stamped the flower on white paper and inked with a Memento yellow and cut it.  The  blue was stamped with one of the flowers and a VersaMark pad for a watermark effect.  A circle was cut with Spellbinders on the blue paper, the corners were punched.  The next step was to take yellow twine wrapping it  around and then mounting on white.  The flower was added with a pearl gem in the center.  A Spellbinder tag was cut and stamped with a Penny Black "gratitude" sentiment.  I really like this Penny Black set from their "T for Transparent" series.  The card is rather simple and lots of fun to make.  Hope you enjoy


  1. Pretty card, Mary Jo; LOVE yellow & blue together and it looks great here with your watermarked BG flowers!!! Needed a couple sympathy cards that must be mailed tomorrow, so made another before dinner. Now need the masculine one, so it won't be going up on JR, but the feminine one will when I get a chance to write the post. Hope yours comes together for you soon!!!

  2. Fabulous cool and citrus-y design Mary Jo!
