Fall | Thinking of You

I love the colors of fall – so I had to make one more fall card before the snow starts flying.

Using a piece of Butter Cream (CS-0006) card stock and the Hello Fall (SS-0450) stamp set I randomly stamped some of the images using Summer Days (IP-0042), Tangerine Fusion (IP-0005) and Green Olive (IP-0072) ink.  Then I adhered a piece of the Fall Fest Prints (PP-0048) to the bottom of the Butter Cream panel.  Adhered a piece of Corrugated Stock (ST-0124) on top of that before adding the Pumpkin Patch Ribbon (AC-0334) on top of that.  This panel was then adhered to a Raspberry Berry (CS-0097) card base.

Fall Thinking of You


I used the 2″ (TO-0043) Scallop Punch to punch out a piece of Mirror Gold (CS-0136).  I stamped the Thinking of You (from the Decorative Doily – which was part of a previous Bloom Box Subscription) in Hazelnut Blend (IP-0012) ink onto a piece of Butter Cream cardstock before punching it out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch (TO-0016).  Adhered the Butter Cream to the Mirror Gold and popped it up on the card front using Foam Squares (AC-0085). 

I applied some Gold Silk (IP-0096) and Fashion Gold (AC-0292) to the card to finish it off.

Wishing all of you a safe and wonderful Holiday.

Noel Wreath | Santa | Merry Christmas

I love making vintage looking cards, especially for the holidays.  When I saw the Noel Wreath Stamp (AT-0267), I knew that I wanted to use it to make a vintage looking card.  There is so much detail on this stamp that I felt that it didn’t need to be colored in.

I took a piece of Oatmeal Cookie (CS-0023) card stock and ran it through the HOHOHO Bold Embossing Folder (EF-0024 – this is a Bloom Benefit – available with a purchase of  $100 or more), then I took my Hazelnut Blend (IP-0012) ink pad and gently rubbed it on top of the embossed piece.  It really makes the words from the HOHOHO Bold embossing folder pop.  I took a piece of the Christmas Cheer Prints (PP-0049) and with a Fusion Ink Sponge (JM-0014), I sponged the edges and lightly sponged the top of the printed paper.  I adhered this piece to the embossed piece using Easy Glide (AD-0081).  I added a piece of So Plaid Ribbon (AC-0317) before adhering the panel to the Hazelnut Blend (CS-0013) card base.

I stamped the Noel Wreath Image onto a piece of Butter Cream (CS-0006) cardstock using Hazelnut Blend ink (IP-0012).  Using the Journey Circles (DI-0039), I cut the Butter Cream piece and then sponged the edges with Hazelnut Blend ink.  This piece was popped up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085) and I added some Fashion Gold (AC-0292).

I just love the So Plaid Ribbon (AC-0317)

For the inside of the card, I stamped the Postage Stamp (AT-0056) in Oatmeal Cookie (IP-0011) ink randomly on a piece of Butter Cream cardstock  and then stamped the Merry Christmas from the Holiday Wishes (SS-0469) stamp set in Candy Apple (IP-0017) ink.  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081), I adhered it to the inside of the card.

Follow Your Dreams

I am big into inspirational sayings. They can really be the pick me up that someone needs as they go through their own life challenges.

For this card I used the Dreams Follow (SS-0508) stamp set [there is a coordinating die set available and it does come in a bundle].  I love how different some of the images look, almost embroidered.  I started with a piece of Banana Cream (CS-0087) cardstock and stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  I then stamped the butterfly in Tangerine Fusion (IP-0005) ink and then using our Small Dauber (TO-0137), I added some Black Licorice ink around the edges of the butterfly before stamping it onto the Banana Cream piece.  I added some Bronze (IP-0091) and Gold (IP-0096) silk.  This panel was then adhered to a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) cardstock and adhered to a Tangerine Fusion (CS-0036) card base.

Fashion Gold accents (AC-0292)

I couldn’t decide what other accents I wanted to add so I made two cards, one with our Fashion Gold (AC-0292) and the other with our Sea Stones (AC-0283).  I can’t decide which one I like better because they both add a special element all their own.

Sea Stone Accents (AC-0283)

I hope you give this card a try using the technique that I did on the butterfly.  It really gives it a different look.
