Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #558 Bloom by Bloom

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #558.  This week we have a sketch.


I have used the Bloom by Bloom stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  This set will be retiring along with the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper.

CCMC #558 Bloom by Bloom by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White that measures 4 1/4 x 11.  Score this at 5 1/2 and fold.  Use your Bone Folder to burnish.

Cut the large night of navy dots paper from the Happiness Blooms DSP to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue this in place over the front of the card.  

I had a scrap of the Calypso Coral that was 5/8 wide and 4 1/4 wide.  Angle cut each end and add this just below the center of the card.  I always use the Grid Paper to help me make sure a layer like this is straight.

Stamp the large flower image and stem using Calypso Coral and Call Me Clover ink on Whisper White.  Add the Night of Navy dots above the flower and scattered around.  Cut this out using the Layering Circles Dies.  Stamp the small flower in Calypso and fussy cut.  Add this with dimensionals.  Glue to the card front.

Using Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp the saying in Calypso Coral.  Punch with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.  Punch a frame of Calypso Coral using the 1 3/8" Scallop Punch.  Add with dimensionals.

Stamp the leaves again and fussy cut these.  Add glue at the base of the leaves and dimesionals at the tips of the leaves.  Add to the left of the circles.  I see now that the sketch adds to the right of the large circle.  That's what I get for not looking at the sketch carefully.

With this set and the patterned paper on the Last Chance List, I wanted to use that paper.  It is a little busy, but I like it.
