Stampin’ Up! Flowering Blooms

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I was able to tackle another one of my gardens yesterday that needed a lot of TLC.  This one wraps around my house and is lined with these large boulders.  I was doing great at the beginning, but after 4 hours of lifting them and raking the dirt, I was exhausted.  My daughter was helping me and was doing great until she dropped one on her foot.  These boulders have to be at least 20-30lbs each, which moving 1 or 2 isn’t bad, but after moving around 40 we were done.  It does look much nicer now, so it was well worth the pain.

For today’s card I played with another new bundle I purchased from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by  Color Throwdown Challenge #597.  Here are their colors.

My sketch is from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #374.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Blooms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Flowering Dies.

I cut another panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and embossed it using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the flower to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On the Thick Whisper White card base I stamped the Bokeh Dots image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on the top and bottom of where I was putting the artwork.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the card front.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Rich Razzleberry sequins from the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  I tied a small bow using the 1/8″ Night of Navy Ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the flower using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large flower image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Flowering Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the Bokeh Dots images from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Balmy Blue and Rich Razzleberry Inks on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
