Hi, Friends!

Caly here with two cards using the Bloom stamp and die set.  This set is great for many occasions and I've used two different sentiments today to share how versatile it can be.  

I stamped the floral images twice on Bristol Vellum paper using a watercolor-friendly ink (Versafine Onyx Black ink).  I decided to color the images using the same colors.  You'll be surprised to learn that I only used 3 colors!  I recently purchased Arteza Real Brush Pens and was excited to use them on these cards.  I used Pine Green, Parakeet Green, and Hot Pink and didn't think I needed more because the colors blend out so nicely and leave lots of depth where I applied color.  

 

For my first card, I used the larger images and created a mirror arrangement and added the Congrats sentiment in the center.  

To add some interest to this card, I framed the card with a scallop and stitch border.  I then centered and stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  To frame in the sentiment, I added score lines using my scoreboard.  

I propped the floral images and adhered them to this card panel using 3M foam tape to give it some dimension.  I think this makes a wonderfully soft wedding card!

On my second card, I used the smaller flora images and created a frame to frame in the sentiment.  I used glitter paper and a frame die to cut out the rectangle.

Once I die cut the frame, I centered it on the card panel and traced some lines on the outer edges so that I could mask it off to add the soft blue border using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink.

Again I stamped the simple sentiment in the center using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  There is something elegant about simple block letters, don't you think?  I think the soft blue around the frame really gives it added depth.  I also added 3M foam tape to the frame and flowers to give it dimension on this card.

I really hope you enjoyed these cards using the beautiful Bloom set.  Thank you so much for joining us here on the Pinkfresh Studio blog today!  Have a fabulous day!

XOXO,
