Hello Bloom

Hello everyone and Happy 4th to all my US friends!! Nick and I made it safely to the states on Wednesday and my husband met as in Denver and drove us to Kansas to celebrate the 4th with my family. Nothing beats Kansas fireworks! And Nick is having a super time! I, however, got sick. Ugh!! I have a super big time head cold. Yuck! I just hope I can enjoy the evening with my extended family. I've been sleeping a lot and taking medicine so we will see... Looks like I am back to posting live again!! 

Today's card was inspired by one that the Stampin' Up! crew had done a while ago with a different flower. I just love this flower and thought I would be able to substitute it and I think it turned out great!

  • Card base is Night of Navy
  • On a piece of Whisper White, stamp the flower from Blended Bloom using Tuxedo Black Momento ink and color in with Blendabilities: Daffodil Delight and Mocha
  • Stamp the splotches from Gorgeous Grunge with Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy (the Night of Navy splotches were stamped off before stamping onto the card stock)
  • Adhere stamped panel to card base
  • Stamp the greeting from Four You onto a strip of Night of Navy using the VersaMark pad and emboss with white emboss powder
  • Flag the end of the embossed strip and flag the end of a strip of Old Olive and adhere together
  • Tie a piece of linen thread through a Hardware Essentials clip and clip to the greeting then adhere to card with dimensionals
There you have it! Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
