Hello lovely crafty people. This lovely and colorful card is really very simple to make. There is some fussy cutting, but otherwise this card is made with just stamping.
The Blossoms in Bloom stamp set by Stampin’ Up! is in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. This stamp set is so fun to create with! The sentiments in the set allow you to design a variety of cards ranging from Happy Birthday to Get Well, and Hello to Thank You. The Blossoms in Bloom would be a great stamp set for the beginning stamper.
So let’s get stamping!
Measurements: Pacific Point Card Stock (CS): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Whisper White CS: two 5 1/4 x 4 inches and a scrap strip measuring a least 8 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches. Note: I also needed a 1/2 inch strip of Whisper White to fix a mistake.
First apply the sentiments “HELLO” and “I LIKE YOU A LOT” to a clear block. Stamp the sentiments in Night Of Navy ink at a diagonal onto one of the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Whisper White CS. Tip: Remember to use the Pierce Mat (or a Stampin’ Up Catalog) under the clear Photopolymer stamps.
For the large stamps, I find it easier to apply the ink evenly if I flip the stamp upside down on the table to apply the ink.
Stamp the bunch of blossoms in Pacific Point ink onto the lower right hand corner. Apply more ink and stamp in the upper left hand corner. These blossoms are just so beautiful!
There are two different medium sized five-petaled flowers. Apply them to a clear block. Stamp the flowers in Magenta Madness onto a scrap piece of Whisper White CS until you have 8 flowers. Fussy cut the flowers.
Stamp the center of the Pacific Point flowers in Early Espresso ink. Stamp the center of the Magenta Madness flowers in Bumble Bee ink. Adhere the Magenta Madness flowers to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Stamp the tiny five-petaled flowers in Balmy Blue ink. I just stamped the tiny five-petaled flowers on randomly.
As I was happily stamping the tiny leaves in Granny Apple Green I dropped the block with the stamp onto my card! Ugh! Not to worry, there is almost always a way to fix a mistake.
I finished stamping the tiny leaves, then took a 1/2 inch strip of Whisper White CS and stamped the sentiments again. I cut the ends to be banner ends and applied the strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Mistake fixed! Whew!
Stamp the large blossoms in Pacific Point ink onto the other 5 1/4 x 4 inch Whisper White CS. Stamp onto the lower right hand corner. Add some of the Magenta Madness flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Randomly stamp some tiny five-petaled flowers in Balmy Blue ink and some tiny leaves in Granny Apple Green ink. Apply the finished inside card piece to the inside of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Pacific Point CS card base. Be sure to use a Bone Folder after folding on the 4 1/4 inch score line to make the fold crisp.
Adhere the front card piece to the front of the Pacific Point CS card base.
Viola! You have made a beautiful, colorful bunch of blossoms to send to someone and spread some cheer!
