Brushed Blooms

I made this card quite a while ago with the stamps and dies from the Stampin Up Brushed Blooms set, that appears in the Jan/June 2021 mini book.  I made a tent style card with Blushing Bride cardstock and I used the brushstroke stamps with Crumb Cake ink on a rectangle die cut ( Stitched So Sweetly die set). The flowers were stamped and die cut using Blushing Bride, Rocco Rose inks with Pear Pizazz on the leaves. The background has been stamped with Versamark ink and a little dotty stamp that comes in the set. The sentiment is also included and just stamped with Black ink.

New In Colour Fresh Freesia

 Another Pansy Patch card today, this time using the Fresh Freesia side of one of the patterned papers in the collection pack. Its a simply tent fold card, with the gingham paper and a scalloped die cut rectangle. I stamped the sentiment first and then arranged the Pansy and the little bud around it. This time I used Fresh Freesia and Blackberry Bliss card for the flower with  Basic White. Bumblebee card for the center again and the new in colours Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen for the leaves.

Wreath Card

 Last card today using the Sizzix Ink and Bloom set. This time I stamped and coloured the flowers and then die cut them out, I used alcohol pens again. I then made a card base and matted some card and then using a circle die cut a partial circle from the folded side. I cut another larger circle in acetate and stamped my sentiment with Stazon ink. I then arranged the flowers to make a wreath and attached to acetate. I did make a circle frame to go on back to hide the glue. It was finished off with another little sentiment stamp.

Sympathy Card

 This is the third card I did using the Sizzix Ink Bloom set, this time keeping it very simple and suitable for a sympathy card. I stamped the flower cluster six times and used the die to cut them out. I did a little colouring, mainly in the centers and I kept it all green. I cut the background card and then die cut the circle before running it through the embossing folder. I stamped the sentiment on the card blank, added the embossed layer and then arranged the flowers to make a wreath. They are attached with foam pads.

Ink Blooms part 2

Another card made with the Sizzix Ink Blooms set today, this time incasing die cuts in a glitter background. Its hard to see as it was a bright day when I took picture , but the flower die cuts are attached to a circle that is covered in double sided sticky paper. Once I had them all in place, I poured glitter all over and rubbed in. I then added gems in the centers and finished off with a foiled sentiment.

On Your First Easter

 Today I have the Easter card I made for my two grandsons on their first Easter. I used to love Lili of the Valley stamps, which they have stopped doing now. They sell downloadable images though for you to colour . Some of them are available to buy already coloured and as I cant get to my pens at the moment as the house is in such a mess, I cheated and brought one already done. Very simple card, I typed the sentiment and just backed it on some gingham card I had in my stash.
