Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #543 Bloom by Bloom

It's Thursday so I welcome you to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #543.  This week we are using the colors Calypso Coral, Call Me Clover, and Night of Navy.


I think I've come up with a great card using the Bloom by Bloom stamp set and the Happiness Bloom Designer Series Paper on page 25 of the Occasions catalog.

There's lots of new product on this card.  Let's get started.

The card base is Night of Navy cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The patterned paper is from the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper.  The stripe is 3/4 x 5 1/4.  The flowered paper is 1 1/4 x 5 1/4, and the dotted paper is 2 x 5 1/4.  Just butt each paper against each other with no overlapping.

Wrap Night of Navy Medium Baker's Twine around the card between the two smaller pieces of patterned paper.  I just taped it under where the label goes.  Make a triple bow and add later with a glue dot.

Cut a Whisper White label using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  Did you notice these on page 28?  They have that double stitching that is wonderful!  The love is cut from Calypso Coral using the Well Written Thinlits from page 27.  The Well Said bundle has so many words both in stamps and thinlits.  It's a little expensive, but you've got to have it!  To make it a little easier use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to make the word a sticker.  The little word you is from the Well Said stamp set.  Just cut around it.  Add with a dimensional after the flowers and leaves are in place.

Bloom by Bloom is a photopolymer stamp set.  I waned to get good coverage stamping the flowers with Night of Navy.  I set them up on the Stamparatus.  These flowers will be cut out with your snips.  I used scraps of Whisper White to stamp.  Just anchor your small piece of paper with the magnet so that the flower stamps on it.  Then you can stamp and reink and stamp again until the flower is perfect.  Stamp three of these.  Do the same with the leaves.  I made 5.   Just move the paper around to find an empty space on the scrap and stamp.  Cut out the flowers and leaves and then add them to the card with dimensionals.  Where the flower or leaf is on the label, just glue it.  Don't forget to add the coral dots to the center of the flower.  I did not use the Stamparatus for that.

Here is the inside of the card.  For the saying, from Well Said, cover the first word you with a piece of tape.  Ink the stamp with Night of Navy, remove the tape, and stamp.  Cut the word you using the Well Written thinlits and add to the front.  That just adds a little more interest and ties it to the front of the card.  Stamp another flower.
