In Bloom Bundle
January 08, 2021
The first Festive Friday Challenge of 2021 and it is a sweet one.
Who knew there was an Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day?! I have eaten lots of different things for breakfast but so far I don't think I have ever had ice cream, maybe I need to try it. Hmmm, it is dairy and if I put a cherry on top that is fruit, right?
How do you play along with the Festive Friday Challenge? It really is easy. Check out the Inspo list which was inspired by the festivity, Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. Pick 3 of the items on the Inspo list and create a project using those items. Post your creation to the Festive Friday gallery and you are entered. There are some rules to the challenge and you can see them here.
I chose from the Inspo list to use Pink, Brown and Dry Embossing. Yes, it is totally okay not to use an ice cream image on your project.
I love the look of stripes and florals. I cut some 1/2" strips of Early Espresso CS to make my own striped paper. The flowers were cut from Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride CS using the Pierced Blooms dies. These dies are one of my favorites from the 2021 January-June Mini Catalog. I love the look of the piercing on the flowers and leaves. The sentiment is from the In Bloom stamp set. You can buy the stamp set and the Pierced Blooms stamp set separately or together aka a bundle. When you bundle you also receive a 10% discount.
I used a new embossing folder called Painted Texture 3D Embossing folder. Doesn't it look so realistic? This folder will be used a lot in my crafting. It adds texture and interest without taking over the other elements. Check out the centers of the flowers. They are the new Opal Rounds. They have an opalescent shine and gleam .

Beautiful, Sharon! I had totally skipped over the In Bloom bundle, but your card has brought it to life. The detail on these flowers is amazing! I love the layout, too.

I love everything about this card, Sharon! It is so very pretty! Did you stamp the sentiment before you ran it through the embossing folder?

Beth, Thank you! I believe I did remember to stamp it first.
