By the Bay, a Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set
Be Mine Valentine, Paper Pumpkin for January

Bloom by Bloom

The Bloom by Bloom stamp set is on page 25 of the Occasions catalog and is part of the Happiness Blooms Suite pictured on pages 24 and 25.  It's just so happy!  Today I have a rather simple card using this stamp set.

I like the crisp simplicity of Night of Navy, Lovely Lipstick, and Whisper White.

Begin with a card base of Night of Navy that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  It's a standard size.

You will need another piece of Night of Navy cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  Run this through the Big Shot with the new Dot to Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It's also on page 25.  Adhere to the base.

The Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper reminds me of the 70's.  Yes, I've been around for a while!

Isn't it fun!  I used the large navy and white dots.  Cut this at 2 x 5.  Use the Banner Triple Punch to notch one end.  Add to the left of the card.

Stamp the flower on Whisper White card stock.  The flower is stamped in Lovely Lipstick and the stem is in Call Me Clover.  Add the Night of Navy dots over the top of the flower.  Another wonderful product in the Occasions catalog is the Retangle Stitched Framelits.  Cut around the flower using the framelits.  These framelits are on page 28 at the bottom left.  They are easy to overlook.

Run a length of the Lovely Lipstick Grosgrain Ribbon across the lower part of the panel.  Add a bow with a glue dot.

Add a few of the Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots around the flower.

The saying is from the stamp set Itty Bitty Birthdays from page 16 of the Occasions catalog.  Stamp in Lovely Lipstick on a piece of 1/2 inch Whisper White.  Notch the end and add to the card.

Here's the inside of the card.  This saying is also from the Itty Bitty Birthdays.  Stamp another flower like the front of the card.
