Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow Hello

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  It is not supposed to be a nice day here.  Severe thunder storms are expected, we’ll see what happens.

My colors for today’s card were inspired by more flowers around my house in my gardens and flower pots and of course these are not my favorites, but the flowers all look so pretty.  The marigolds, I had seeds from last years plants so I threw them in a pot to see what would happen, they are growing like weeds.  The tiny orange flowers attract butterflies and I have them in 3 different gardens.

Here is my card using these colors.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhering it to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a small panel of Daffodil Delight card stock using the Greenery Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Mango Melody mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set above the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a strip of the In Good Taste DSP to the edge of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in the center of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped 3 of the small floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 3 of the small floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to 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!!

Stampin’ Up Bloom and Grow Swirly Frame Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  I was able to get a little stamping time in, which I always love.  Just a reminder, you only have 3 days left of Bonus Days.  Don’t miss out on earning coupons to use in August.  See below for details.

For today’s card I used a new to me stamp set that my wonderful upline gave me for completing a challenge in the month of June.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set.  We had daily challenges to do for the whole month and I was able to complete 29 of the 30 challenges.  I’m still working on the 30th.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a couple challenges today.  First off is Hand Stamped Challenge #319.  Here is their Sentiments Inspiration.

Next I played along with the Fab Friday Color Challenge #168.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with the Inspire. Create Challenge #48.  Theirs is a Theme Challenge.  Here is their theme.

I started by stamping the largest rectangle frame image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Pacific Point card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the Budding Blooms Dies and adhered it to the side of the embossed frame image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the ‘birthday wishes’  sentiment out using the Well Written Dies from a panel of Whisper White cardstock and adhered the words inside the swirly frame using a Fine Point Glue Pen.  I then adhered the card front to a Pacific Point card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pineapple Punch Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the right corner of the frame.

On the inside I stamped the smaller floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Pacific Point Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large rectangle image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on the envelope front so that I could write the address in the center of it.  I stamped the large floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set on the envelope flap and colored it in the same as I did for the card.

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