I have a few sets that I pre-ordered in November after the Stampin' Up On Stage event (our annual convention), but haven't had a chance to play with yet. I thought it would be fun to pair the new Bloom by Bloom Stamp Set with the Banners for You Stamp Set. I stamped my own background with two of the flowers, a grouping of dots and the leaf stamps from the set. I used Pineapple Punch, Calypso Coral, Lovely Lipstick and Gray Granite inks on Whisper White Cardstock. I trimmed this piece down, and covered it with the same size Vellum Cardstock piece as a top layer to help separate it from the next layers.
I cut a piece of the Calypso Coral dotted patterned paper with a Stitched Circle framelit, and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals. I wrapped all the layers with Whisper White Baker's Twine, and tied a bow before adhering all of it to the card. The greeting is stamped in Versamark, heat embossed in white and cut out with the coordinating framelit.
It's a pretty simple card, but I think it turned great! This is really a versatile sketch as you'll see by all our projects this week. Don't forget to check out the others at the TGIF Challenges Blog, and share your card with us.
