Go Wild!

Go Wild!

Hello and welcome back!

Today’s projects are the cards in this month’s Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Box. I love, love, love Bloom Box! It is a subscription service; one month at a time or every month until you say stop. Each box contains a full size red rubber stamp set and four fully kitted cards. ‘Fully kitted’ means you get all the card stock, printed paper and embellishments to make each card, following the booklet included in each box.

You always get to see the Bloom Box in advance, so if it’s not your cup of tea, you simply pause your subscription or skip that month. I have not loved every stamp set that I’ve gotten, but I have loved learning new stamping techniques and playing with new colors and embellishments, so the kits have always been fun for me.

The cards:

Easy stamping, some detail cutting, and a quick flick of gold silk.

Creative use of vellum to soften the background and let the images in the foreground and sentiment draw the eye.

White pigment ink against dark card stock is always dramatic. Love it to offset the fun badge element.

This one may be my favorite. I love the whimsical color combination, using stamping-off to lighten the color, and creating a campground-esque sign for the sentiment. Fun!

So there is March’s Bloom Box. It is available to order through the month, as long as the supply lasts.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!


Uplifting Birthday Card

Uplifting Birthday Card

My project today is a birthday card I made for my sister. I had intended a floral theme, but the colors and shapes I chose just insisted on something more fun.

My base is Rich Coral, layered with Lemon Drop. The Lemon layer is embossed with the Fun Stampers Journey embossing folder, Birthday Bash, which can be found in the current trends mini catalog- Bloom This Way. I die cut some balloons with the Uplift die set out of Spring Filled Prints paper. Both of these items are also in the mini catalog. The paper matches the treat box that I made for my sister. See this post for the treat box.

My card:

I stamped and die cut the Make a Wish sentiment and then covered it with a thin layer of Journey Glaze. See how shiny it is? I finished up by adding some twine for the balloon strings and flicking some Black Licorice Silk over the whole thing.

Thank you for taking time to visit today. I am so pleased that you found me.
