Dandelion Wishes

Dandelion Wishes is another new stamp set that is in the 2018/2019 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.  It has these cute little dandelions that look like they are being blown in the wind.

When I was a kid my father would make me spend hours pulling dandelions out of the lawn.  Back then I think it was considered a sin to have them growing in your yard. I think people would drive by a lawn that had one dandelion in it and everyone would gasp with horror!

When Rob and I bought our first house I also spent hours pulling dandelions out of the lawn. I bought this awesome tool that would pull them out by the root when standing up. I was obsessed with it.  I wouldn’t even let my kids blown the dandelion seeds.  One day I looked around and noticed all our neighbor’s lawns and the park across the street were covered in dandelions.  There were thousands of dandelions.  There were more dandelions in their lawns then there was grass.  My father would be horrified but I realized then it was a losing proposition so I gave up and taught my kids how to blow the seeds around.  Ok.  I have to admit they could only do that in the park across the street.

I made this card using one of the sentiments from Dandelion Wishes.  I like this sentiment because it can be used as a birthday, get well, wedding or really any occasion.  I first stamped the sentiment in Versamark and then embossed it using Copper Embossing Powder and my Heat Tool.  Then I cut it out using the Layering Circle Dies.  I punched out the starburst from Copper Foil Paper using the Starburst Punch and adhered the sentiment to it.  Then I embossed a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.  The ribbon from the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack.  Lastly I added some Frosted and Clear Epoxy Droplets that are in the Holiday Catalog.

  1. Sweet card, Susan, and I LOVE your story. We had a “dandelion digger” too. It was kind of fun digging them when I was a kid. But, you’re right – it’s a lesson in futility when all the neighbors (or, in our case – our lawn) have them blowing all over.
