Definitely Dahlia Card

There was a time when large stamps intimidated me! I didn't know what to do with them. When I looked at designs using large stamps, I always loved how they looked and eventually I just went for it. Now I love stamping off to one side and using part of a large image. The new Definitely Dahlia stamp by Stampin' Up! is quite large at a little over 4 inches. The colors for this Definitely Dahlia Card are from the Color Throwdown challenge. I stamped the image in Strawberry Slush and added some leaves from the Birthday Blossoms set using Lucky Limeade. From the Kinda Eclectic stamp set the butterfly was stamped in Crumb Cake. To add some detail I used the large scallop die with Basic Gray cardstock and added some Basic Gray twine. The patterned paper is from the retired Fresh Prints paper stack and the last detail was the addition of three little pearls on the butterfly. Thanks for stopping by!

This Definitely Dahlia Card is entered into the following challenges:


  1. Love this stamp set and card!

  2. Oh, how pretty Andrea. The Dahlia is beautiful. Love the size. Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown.

  3. So pretty! That dahlia looks fabulous in pink and set in the corner of the panel. Thanks for joining us at the Color Throwdown!

  4. What a gorgeous stamp! I have always stayed away from the larger stamps too but this looks amazing! Great idea to offset it!
