Clear stamps from Chocolate Baroque!

Hi there, here's another card using the fabulous new clear stamps from Chocolate Baroque. This time I've used stamps from the Oriental Crane stamp set

I've used memento inks and glossy card for this project, the focal image made me think of all the lovely old 'Willow Pattern' chine that my grandma used to have in her china cabinet so I took inspiration from that to create this card. I've used various shades of blue memento inks to stamp the images, added a doily from my stash, some faux pearls, ribbon in shades of blue and white and finished off with a button and a tiny little bow.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Divas by Design: lots of layers
Pink Elephant: Monochromatic

Thanks for popping by

  1. This is so beautiful it should be framed and put on the wall. I hope whoever gets it will do this. Far to lovely to be tucked away in a drawer somewhere.

  2. Really striking & I love your use of the various blues with the doily. The pearls around the circular matting are delightful. I particularly likethe way all your sprigs are stamped so as to guide the eye towards the middle of the card.

  3. Oh my goodness! This is stunning. I LOVE the design and such a gorgeous shade of blue. It reminds me of the Willow Pattern china too.


  4. Wonderful card, great color scheme.

  5. Wow Claire this is very much like the Willow pattern. Also reminds me of Dutch Delft. Gorgeous work, love it ! Have a great weekend, Shirleyx
