Sometimes I think, I don’t need anymore flower stamp sets, I’ve got plenty. That is until I see a new stamp set with gorgeous flowers that seem to be calling my name. That’s what happened when I saw the Bloom & Grow stamp set. Add to that, the fact that there is a set of coordinating dies to cut out the images, called Budding Blooms Dies and I just can’t resist! Better yest is that I saved 10% buy purchasing the bundle with the stamp set and dies!
This card is a “Half Flap” fun fold card, just like THIS CARD I shared a couple days ago. I started out with a Very Vanilla card base and added a piece of So Saffron to the inside. I added texture to the Mint Macaron piece with the Lace 3D Embossing Folder and wrapped a piece of the Scalloped Lace Trim around it before attaching it to the front flap of the card. The sentiment is stamped with Memento ink on a Very Vanilla Label I cut out using the Wild Rose Die. This is popped up off the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals that attach it only to the Mint Macaron side of the card. Now onto my favorite part of this card….those gorgeous flowers. They were stamped on Very Vanilla with Memento Ink and colored in with Stampin’ Blends using Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, So Saffron and Mint Macaron. After the coloring and shading was done, I cut them out with the Budding Blooms Die and popped it up with Dimensionals too.

Today’s card features the Butterfly Wishes stamp set, which is one of the Dist-INK-tive stamps. That means it’s been created with photographic imagery. For example the flowers in the card below have depth to the design like a photo would have.
To get the multi colored flowers and branch, I used a sponge dauber with Old Olive to ink up the branch and leaves and then used Terracotta Tile and sponge dauber to ink up the flowers before stamping them on the Sahara Sand card stock. Next, to add texture, I embossed the card base and the stamped piece with the Subtle Embossing Folder. After layering the Old Olive on the card front and the stamped piece, I added a piece of the Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon. The butterfly was stamped off once before stamping it on a piece of Sahara Sand and cutting it out with Paper Snips and popping it up off the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

It’s graduation season and I love using the Sailing Home Bundle to create fun graduation cards. The sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set is great for graduation and I love the die that cuts out the fancy label the sentiment is mounted on.
The Night of Navy card base is 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 5-1/2″. This leaves a half flap on the left of the card that opens. I placed a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Seaside Spray on the inside of the card, while the front flap got a 4″ x 2-2/4″ piece of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. The sail boat and sea gulls were stamped in Night of Navy on a 2″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Seaside Spray. I then colored the sails with the Stampin’ Write Chalk Marker and wrapped a piece of the Come Sail Away Bakers twine around the cardstock before popping it up on a 2-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Sahara Sand with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then layering on a 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Night of Navy. This layers were then attached to the front of the card flap making sure not to attach it to the Seaside Spray inside layer. The final touch was the sentiment stamped on Sahara Sand with Night of Navy and punched out with the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch and layered on a Night Of Navy stitched piece I cut out using the Smooth Sailing Dies. This was popped up with Dimensionals as well.
