Bloom Where You Are Planted with Martha

Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here to share with you a card created with the new Chiffon Collection and our PowderPuff Chalk Inks. Oh my gosh!!! This collection is simply gorgeous and I am sure you will love it!

  • This is a standard 5.5"x4.25" card.
  • I created a top-folding base with Very Vanilla card stock and covered it with Chiffon 100 "dark side" paper.
  • I cut a second piece of the same paper 4.5"x3.25" but using the other face, the light side, I inked the edges with Milk Chocolate.
  • Then using the same ink and a blender pen I traced stitched lines over all borders and pasted this layer over the decorated base.


  • To create the flower I punched four 1-3/4" circles using the dotted side of Chiffon 101 paper.
  • Each circle is folded in half and then folded in half again.
  • The borders of the four folded pieces were inked with Desert Sun and then were hot glued to a 1" circle base.
  • The leaves were die cut with the Small Ivy die cut from DieNamites using the green side of Chiffon 104 paper and inked with the Green Leaf.
  • To finalize the decoration, I just attached a red bottom with a natural linen thread.
  • As a sentiment I used an image from the new stamp set of Joy Clair called Grow with Faith that I stamped using Mahogany.
