Marimekko inspired card - Blooms & Wishes by Stampin' Up!

I'm often inspired by other designers that I love. In particular Scandinavian artists who are often inspired themselves by nature.

Today's project is made using the Blooms and Wishes Stampin' Up! stamp set and reminds me of a Marimekko design:


For those that don't know Marimekko, they're a Finnish textiles and furniture company based in Helsinki. They made important contributions to fashion in the 1960s, and one designer in particular, Maija Isola, helped make Marimekko a household name with her large, loud, bold flowered prints.

Marimekko are known for fabric, wallpaper and their fabulous napkins:

Such fantastic designs!

I used five colours to create this look - Blushing Bride, Crushed Curry, Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red and Wisteria Wonder, They're all bold colours but they work well together.

I simply layered the flowers up in no particular order at all, which is consistent with Marimekko design.

If you have questions about the products in this project, or about Stampin' Up! then please don't hesitate to get in touch.
