I am a huge Sunflower fan (can you tell, LOL). I was like a kid on Christmas morning waiting for this month’s Bloom Box to arrive. I love getting the Bloom Box. Not only do I love the projects you can create with it but I also love to come up with my own. I always learn something new when I make my Bloom Box.
I used Pineapple Smoothie (CS-0026) for the card base. I cut a piece of Rich Coral (CS-0093) to 5 1/4″ x 4″. (Can I just say that Rich Coral is now one of my favorite cardstock colors!!!). Using the Get Well Soon from the Get Well Stamp Set (SS-0031), I stamped it onto the Rich Coral base using Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041). I then cut a strip of Oatmeal Cookie (CS-0023) to 5 1/4″ x 1 1/2″. Using the HoneyComb ATS (AT-0090) I stamped it in Hazelnut Blend Ink (IP-0012) onto the Oatmeal Cookie piece. I adhered this piece to the Rich Coral panel and then attached a piece of Green Olive Grosgrain Ribbon (AC-0248). [I love cutting ribbon with our Grand Pro Shears (TO-0064), they are amazing!! Nothing sticks to them and they are self sharpening.] Using Easy Glide (AD-0081), I adhered it to the Pineapple Smoothie card base.
Using the Journey Ovals (DI-0042), I cut out a piece of Pool Play (CS-0092) and Buttercream (CS-0006) using the same size oval for both. I stamped the smaller sunflower from the Hello Sunflower September 2017 Bloom Box onto the Buttercream oval piece using Black Licorice ink. I used the Journey Color Burst Pencils (JM-0077) to color it in using #015, #016, #021, #023 and #039. I added some Journey Gold Silk (IP-0096) before adhering it to the Pool Play oval (slightly offset). Then using Foam Squares (AD-0085) I adhered it to the card.
