Just a Note – September 2018 Bloom Box Alternative

Take a minute to stop and listen to the music.  I added a few items that were not included in this months Bloom Box.  I love being able to incorporate stamps that I have on hand to add my own spin on these great designs.

Just a Note

The Gnome comes from the Gnome for the Holidays Bundle, stamped in Black Licorice ink onto a Whip Cream piece of cardstock and colored in using Color Burst Pencils.

Just a Note2

I decided to use the remaining elements that I had from the Bloom Box on this card.  I love how it sparkles and shines.  Using a Small Blending Brush, Sparkle Silk was added to the Gnomes mustache and beard.  Journey Glaze was added to his nose and the ball of his hat.

Justs a Note 1

Sending thank you notes is something I do often so I love that I can jazz them up using this set.

May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

I completed this card as the Bloom Box instructions indicated.  I added the Gnome from the Gnome for the Holidays Bundle.  The Gnome was stamped in Black Licorice ink and colored in using Color Burst Pencils.  Journey Glaze was added to the face of the Sun, nose of the Gnome and the ball of his hat.  A celebration sequin was added to the center of his hat.

Dance to Your Own Rhythm – September 2018 Bloom Box Alternative

This Gnome sure does dance to his own rhythm.

Dance to Your Own Rhythm1

I followed the instructions from the Bloom Box but changed it up a bit.  The Gnome comes from the Gnome for the Holidays Bundle and he is my favorite of the bunch.  He was stamped in Black Licorice ink onto Whip Cream cardstock and colored in using Color Burst Pencils.  The sunshine from the Your Own Rhythm Bloom Box – was stamped in Summer Days in and the I took Citrus Cooler ink and inked up the outer portion of the stamp.  [I love how groovy this background looks – great technique].

Dance to Your Own Rhythm2

The Saxophone was stamped in Black Licorice ink and cut out using Detail Shears.  It was colored in using Color Burst Pencils.  Sparkle Silk was added by using a Small Blending Brush. [Can’t you just hear the music playing].

Dance to Your Own Rhythm3

To finish off the card Journey Glaze was added to the sentiment, as well as the nose of the Gnome.  A Rhinestone was added to the center of his hat.

Dance to your own rhythm!
