Crazy for Blooms-Botanical Blooms

Crazy for Blooms-Botanical Blooms


Blooms on the flowers are in full force here in Florida.  My allergies can tell you for sure.

I think this could be the worst year I’ve had for allergies living here.  The pollen is outrageous, but the blooms are beautiful.

I’m excited you are visiting today as the Artisans are sharing flowers galore.  They are pollen free and pretty to look at and for this I’m grateful.

Botanical Blooms

From the beginning that I laid eyes on Botanical Blooms I had a feeling I would struggle with this suite.  It’s interesting how this entire suite has grown on me and I can honestly say I love the framelits that coordinate with the Botanical Blooms stamp set.

Same Set-Different Colors

I’ve created to cards to share today both using the Botanical Blooms but both using different color schemes.  I love how they both turned out.

My inspiration for the colors on this first card started with the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper.  I started the first layer with stamping the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set on the Shimmer White cardstock and then started to build the card from there.




Quick Tips to Create 

Blooms, Botanical Blooms, Stampin' Up!

  • Having a Sponge Dauber on hand was perfect to darken the color of the cardstock using the coordinating ink.
  • I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets large splatter image over the Mint Macaron flower for added texture.
  • The It’s My Party Enamel Dots make for a perfect flower center.
  • I used the Grateful Bunch stamp set for the greeting.

Bright Blooms Color Change 

I couldn’t help but try using the Botanical Blooms using brighter colors.

The little tiny flower image just made me giggle with joy.  I love when a stamp does that for me.  It’s so tiny and CUTE.  I love how it looks in the different colors coming down the cardstock.

Quick Tips to Create

  • I used the Oh So Lovely stamp set for the greeting.
  • Once the tiny flowers were stamped, I started building up my flower bouquet using Mini Glue dots to keep in place.
  • I added a thread from the White Jute ribbon under the flowers.

Botanical Blooms can be used so many different ways.  I love when you can look at a stamp set and see more than just a flower.

Grateful Bunch- Wednesday WOW!

Grateful Bunch

Get ready for bright and happy with the Grateful Bunch stamp set AND something new I’m trying out.


Hope your ready.


Welcome to Wednesday WOW.


My purpose for this new series is to share how you can create a quick and simple card or if time permits add a few additional supplies to create a WOW.


Let’s face it- Some days quick and simple is what needs to happen.  Time in the craft room might be sparse but you want to create.  I love to create a WOW card but the reality is TIME.  Sometimes I want to make 10 of the same card and time is not on my side.  I need quick and simple.


Heres the thing- quick and simple can be a WOW. I also want to share how you can create a card with basic supplies.  I hope you enjoy.

Let’s break it down and start with the Quick and Simple card.

Create it!

Grateful Bunch stamp set, Stampin' Up!, Wednesday WOW,


To create this card you will need 3 coordinating inks.  I used Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Tangelo Twist.  They are bright and happy colors and made the flower image really pop.

  1. Stamp the images randomly onto the front of Whisper White cardstock base 4-1/4 x 11.
  2. Stamp one flower using one of the coordinating inks onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Fussy cut the image.
  3. Stamp your greeting onto Whisper White cardstock scrap and Die Cut using the Tags and Labels Framelits.
  4. Adhere the die cut under the 1″ x 4-1/4″ piece of designer paper.
  5. Adhere this across the Vellum using dimensionals.
  6. Adhere the piece of White Cardstock Vellum over the center of the Whisper White cardstock.
  7. Adhere stamped flower above greeting and add a button into the center.

Embellishments that WOW

Now stamp the same card but let’s add a few layers of embellishments that are budget friendly and you can get a lot of use with.

Essentially the same card but I’ve added a Tea Lace Doily over the Vellum.  I’ve also added a small Gold Foil Doily to give the card a little extra sparkle.

Instead of one flower, I stamped three in the colors I used for the background and fussy cut.  The greeting is the same, but placed where the Tea Lace Doily just hangs a smidge below it.

The Bermuda Bay flower was attached using a Dimensional to add a little dimension.
