2020 Blossoms in Bloom

Blossoms in Bloom and Oh So Ombre DSP

I have been playing around using the Oh So Ombre DSP, which is one of the  Sale-A-Bration choices.  Did you know Oh So Ombre is, so far the most redeemed Sale-A-Bration choice?  Are you surprised?  One of the things I like about the DSP is that it does the coloring work for me.  I played with the DSP using the Wild Roses stamp(you can see it here) which got me thinking about other ways to use the DSP. 


The Blossoms in Bloom bundle is a great one to use to play with color.  This combination of Basic Black, Basic White and Rococo Rose is bold and strong.  The Oh So Ombre DSP is such a pretty background for the flowers and leaves.

Here I paired the Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre with Basic Gray, and Basic White  This combination of colors, Rococo Rose and Basic Gray is a little softer.  Which do you like better?

Simple Sunday...Blossoms in Bloom

What kind of cards do you use the most?  Lately, it seems I have been sending a lot of just checking in, thinking about you cards.  The Many Layered Blossoms die part of the Blossoms in Bloom bundle is a great one to use to make quick pretty cards.  The die is large so all you really need is a sentiment and your card is done.


I kept the color palette simple using just Whisper White CS and Real Red CS.  Real Red card stock was used to cut out the bolder die and Whisper White for the outline die.  If you back the Whisper White CS with a piece of Adhesive Sheet it will make assembly very easy.  The assembled flower was layered on Whisper White CS cut using a Stitched Rectangle die.  The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  The sentiment was stamped using Versamark ink and heat embossed in  White embossing powder.  Rhinestones were placed in the centers of all the flowers to add a little sparkle to the card.


On this second version the sentiment was stamped and embossed on Basic Black cardstock.  Which version do you like best?

Blossoms in Bloom Birthday

It is Friday and time for another fun Festive Friday Challenge!  This time the Inspo List is inspired by  National Simplicity Day!  What does this mean to you?  Check out the Inspo List and choose 3 things to use on your project and post it in the Festive Friday blog gallery!  Here's the Inspo List.


Lots of fun things on this list!  I chose Stitching, Birthday theme and Floral theme.  Surprised?  Me too!  I was all set to do the B & W with a pop of color cause that is usually my jam but wait I guess I kind of did do that.  I will let you be the judge.


It is hard to see but the Basic Black layer does have a stitched edge and so does the sentiment.  You can see the floral and birthday theme but where is the white?


There it is!  Okay, this might be pushing what is really meant by b&w and a pop of color.  Magenta Madness definitely is a happy pop of color and it is still my favorite new In Color but to be fair I haven't used the other colors as much.  

Guess what?! I have a tutorial for you with all the measurements and supplies.  CLICK HERE!

Thanks for stopping by and I  hope you play along with the Festive Friday Challenge #FF62.  I love seeing what your creations in the gallery!

Blossoms in Bloom Shades of Blue

Played around with Misty Moonlight (2020-22 In Color), Seaside Spray (2019-21 In Color). and Night of Navy color combination.  I cut one of each color using both the detailed and bold dies in the Many Layered Blossoms ,part of the Blossoms in Bloom bundle.  I also cut one of each color in 4" x 5-1/4" and a card base, 4-1/4" x 11".  It was fun playing around with the different combinations  mixing and matching.  


This was a fun way to play with Misty Moonlight and the Blossoms in Bloom bundle.  


The card base is Seaside Spray, the layer is Night of Navy (embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D folder), the bold die is Seaside Spray and the detailed die is Misty Moonlight.  The sentiment was embossed in white embossing powder on a strip of Misty Moonlight cardstock.


The card base is Misty Moonlight cardstock, the layer is Seaside Spray cardstock, the bold die is Misty Moonlight, and the detailed die is Night of Navy cardstock.  The sentiment was heat embossed white embossing powder on Night of Navy cardstock.


The card base is Night of Navy, the layer is Misty Moonlight, the bold die is Night of Navy and the detailed die is Seaside Spray cardstock.  The sentiment was embossed in white embossing powder on Night of Navy cardstock.

There are 7 sentiments in the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set covering a wide range of occasions.   I love this bundle and how versatile it is and look forward  experimenting with different color combination and coloring techniques.

Blossoms in Bloom

This is my first card using the Blossoms in Bloom bundle (Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and the Many Layered Blossoms).  I wasn't going to get this bundle but I am so glad I changed my mind.  After just one play with it, I am hooked!


I cut the outline layer in Basic Black cardstock and the bolder layer in Magenta Madness  part of the In Color 6" x 6" DSP.  Isn't it pretty?  Adhering the two layers was a little tedious which is why I am looking forward to getting the Adhesive Sheets. The Adhesive Sheets will make it so much easier to attach the outline layer.


The Whisper White layer was embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3-D folder.  Another must have texture!  It has a little more texture than the Subtle 3-D and looks like fabric.  The sentiment was embossed using White embossing powder and decorated with an In Color Enamel Dot.  Inside of the card is another flower from the Many Layered Blossoms die.
