In Bloom Bundle

It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  This week it is a color challenge.


Old Olive is one of my go to colors especially for leaves so I was immediately sent down the flower and leaves path.  I love the look of the Pierced Blooms dies.  I like that there are so many different sizes and shapes of flowers and leaves in this die set.  


I love flower arranging, paper flowers that is.  I am no good with live flowers but give me some paper blooms and I will happily fiddle with them.  

Tip:  When I have a color challenge I go through my embellishments including ribbon and pull out the items in the challenge colors.  I also do the same with DSP (Designer Series Paper).  This helps me see my options and reminds me of what I have in my stash.  

I only had the  In Color Enamel Dots in Bumblebee.  I focused on what embellishments I had in Bumblebee because there isn't a Stampin' Blend for that color.  I colored the Misty Moonlight enamel dot with the Dark Night of Navy Stampin' Blend and it looks great.  If I didn't have an embellishment that worked I would have used a rhinestone or pearl.

The DSP I pulled was the In Color 6" x 6" DSP.   I used it for the layer.  The tiny print adds interest without adding bulk or being too distracting.


The frame was cut using a die from Stitched So Sweetly  set and a Stitched Rectangle die.  The sentiment is from the In Bloom stamp set which is the stamp component in the In Bloom bundle with the Pierced Blooms die.  I had an extra Bumblebee bloom so I decorated the inside of my card along with a strip of the DSP I used.  

I have listed below all the products used on this card.  Thank you for stopping by!
