Beautiful Day

I have said it before and I’ll say it again. This month’s Bloom Box is over the top.  This design was included in this month’s box and I loved it so much I had to recreate it.  Here is the alternative version I came up with.  I used the contents of the April 2018 Bloom Box and added a few other items.

Beautiful Day

In your Bloom Box the front panel is already die cut.  Since I used it I needed to create a new panel and I did this using Buttercream (CS-0006) cardstock,  Journey Rectangles Die (DI-0041) and the Fancy Label Die (DI-0035).  On this panel I stamped the floral image from the April 2018 Bloom Box – Love Life in Lemon Drop (IP-0043) and Citrus Cooler (IP-0048) ink.

Beautiful Day3

I stamped the butterfly from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) in Black Licorice Ink and cut it out using the coordinating die.  I colored in the butterfly using our Gold Silk (IP-0096) and a Blending Brush(TO-0097).

Beautiful Day2

I love how it turned out and think this color combination is very striking.

Beautiful Day4

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

I hope you have a beautiful day!!

Small Things | Thanks

I love Butterflies as much as I love Sunflowers.  The images in the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) are just gorgeous.  I love the different sizes and designs of the Butterfly images you can almost see them fluttering by.

Small Things Thanks

For this card I stamped a Whip Cream (CS-0040) panel with the images from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) in the following inks:  Cool Pool (IP-0074), Pretty Amethyst (IP-0018), and Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027).  On a scrap piece of Whip Cream card stock, I stamped one of the images in Black Licorice (IP-0041) and cut it out with the coordinating die.

Small Things Thanks4

Using the Journey Circles (DI-0039), I cut out a piece of Vellum (PP-0044) [we also have our Vellum Designer Prints (PP-0008)] and popped it up on the card front before popping up the Black Licorice Butterfly on top of that using Foam Squares (AD-0085).  Then adhered the Whip Cream panel to a piece of Sweet Berry (CS-0034) and then onto a Turbo Teal (CS-0127) card base.

Small Things Thanks2

Added some of the Classic Elegance Tape (AC-0291) and Sweet Romance (AC-0290) [Sweet Romance is a Bloom Benefit – you can get it for free with an order of $100 or more].  On another piece of Whip Cream, I stamped the Thanks from the Inside &  Out (SS-0576) stamp set and the cut it out using our Detail Shears (TO-0063) and popped it up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0084).

Small Things Thanks3

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set in Black Licorice ink on a piece of Whip Cream card stock.

With Sympathy | April 2018 Bloom Box

I love the images from the April 2018 Love Life Bloom Box and have been having fun creating additional projects with them.  This is definitely being added to my list of “go to” stamps!

Sympathy

On a Whip Cream (CS-0040) panel, I stamped a floral image from the April 2018 Bloom Box – Love Life in Grape Fusion (IP-0006) ink and stamped it around the outer edge of the panel.  Using the Beautiful Wings (SS-0353) stamp set, I stamped the Butterfly in Pretty Amethyst (IP-0018), Summer Days (IP-0042), and Black Licorice (IP-0041).

Sympathy2

The With Sympathy Sentiment came from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink. [yes, this stamp set is on my “go to” list as well].

The panel was then adhered to a Pretty Amethyst (CS-0028) panel before being adhered to a Pretty Pansy (CS-0029) card base.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inside & Out stamp set in Black Licorice onto a piece of Pretty Amethyst.

With Sympathy/Butterfly

Unfortunately one can never have too many Sympathy cards on hand.  I love this one because it is really beautiful and it is fairly easy to put together.

I used the stamp sets Beautiful Wings (SS-0353) and Bird Melody (SS-0496).  (Bird Melody also has matching dies or you can buy as a bundle and save some $ for other treasure for your stamping stash).

With Sympathy Butterfly
I love these stamp sets. 

I used Whip Cream cardstock (CS-0040) for my card front cut at 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″.  Beautiful Wings uses three set stamping.  I stamped on of the images in Summer Days ink (IP-0042), the other in Citrus Cooler ink (IP-0048) and then the outline butterfly in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041).  The sentiment came from the Bird Melody stamp set and was stamped using Black Licorice ink.

I used Foam Squares (AD-0085) to adhere the Whip Cream card front to a Summer Days (CS-0033) card base that was 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.

I stamped an extra butterfly on a scrap piece of Whip Cream cardstock and cut it out using Detail Pro Shears (TO-0063).    Then I used my Crease Tool (TO-0040) to shape the wings of the butterfly to really “bring paper to life”.    I adhered some Black Twine (AC-0004) to the back of the butterfly using foam squares and then attached it to the card front.

To finish off the card I added some of the Sparkle Silk (IP-0126).

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy Crafting!!
