Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring In Bloom Stamp Set v2

Hello my crafty friends. I really enjoyed creating last week's card with all the die cut pieces from the Pierced Blossom Dies. This week I thought I would use up some of the left over die cut pieces and use a technique called sponging.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Soft Succulent cardstock. The flower images are die cut using the Polished Pink and Pale Papaya cardstock and the leaves are die cut using the Soft Succulent cardstock. Exactly like we did for last week's card.

To create the brick wall, emboss a piece of Basic White (1 1/4" wide and 4 1/8" long) using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Ink a Sponge Dauber in Soft Suede ink and lightly swipe across the raised bricks. Using a light touch to the paper will allow the background to remain white and make this fantastic-looking brick wall.

To create the cloud effect, hand cut a scrap of cardstock with scallop edges. Ink a Sponge Dauber in Balmy Blue ink and holding the cardstock flush to the Basic White background, lightly swipe across and off the edges. Continue to sponge while moving the hand cut template around the flowers in a similar direction from the bottom to the top of your card. It may take some practice, but you will soon be creating your own fantastic fluffy clouds.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Soft Succulent on the 1/2" strip that makes the ledge of my wall.

NOTE: The bundle pricing retires on June 30, however, both the In Bloom Stamp Set and Pierced Blooms Dies will carry over and be sold separately in the 2021-22 Annual Catalog. 

This was a fun card to make. I hope my project has inspired your creativity. I would love to see what you have created. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

The LAST CHANCE sale has already begun. The Mini Catalog is set to retire on June 30. It’s always bittersweet to see a classic Stampin’ Up! catalog take a trip to retirement. But, we’re looking forward to all the new products on their way—and we hope you are, too! Stock up on your favorites before they are gone for good! Save up to 50% on essential craft supplies while supplies last. If you need a list of the retiring product, just let me know.
