Greetings and happy Thursday! I am thrilled to be here today with my second of three guest designer posts for Throwback Thursday

My Throwback inspiration is a gorgeous card created by STAMPlorations designer Deepti Malik, featuring her Blossom Sprays #3 stamp, which is one of the stamps in the Blossoms Sprays series in Dee's ARTSY IMPRESSIONS line. It includes Blossom Sprays #1Blossom Sprays #2 and Blossom Sprays #3. I used all three stamps for my Throwback Thursday creations. 

The Throwback Card

Here's how Deepti's card inspired me:

Project #1

A CASE of Deepti's card using Blossom Sprays #3 and the same spotlighting technique. I love the way the white embossing looks on kraft. I colored the lilies like stargazers - my favorite variety of lilies.


Project #2

For this one, I used Blossom Sprays #2 with a different spotlighting technique using colored strips and repeat stamping. The sentiment is from the BEAUTIFUL YOU stamp set.


Project #3

This card features Blossom Sprays #1The image is stamped and heat embossed it with clear EP on a Distress Oxide background. The sentiment is from For The Birds

 I had so much from using Deepti's Blossom Sprays stamps and mixing in some older sets for sentiments. You can link to my blog to view my Throwback Thursday post HERE.

I will be back on August 19th with my new and final Throwback Thursday post. Until then, happy crafting!
