Today I have another Thank You card using the Bloom by Bloom photopolymer stamp set and Happiness Blooms memories and more card pack, both from the current Occasions Catalog.
I just love the bold modern flowers from this set because they remind me of mod flowers that were popular in the the 70’s. And the shine!! I was surprised when I opened the memories and more card pack to see the shiny cardstock, so I was inspired to make the main flowers shiny too by using clear embossing powder.
I started by using a Calypso Coral card base and a strip from one of the shiny memories and more cards. I matted the strip with pineapple punch and and attached it to the bottom of the card with snail adhesive. I used a scrap of Call Me Clover cardstock and die cut the ‘thanks’ greeting from the Well Written framelits from the Occasions Catalog and glued it to the panel with the fine tipped glue pen.
I then stamped the large tulip image three times with Calypso Coral ink on thick whisper white cardstock. I used the stamparatus to do my stamping because I stamped each image twice to make sure I had a solid image. This stamp has thick stamped images, so it is sometimes hard to get a good image by stamping once. The stamparatus is great for this because it easily allows me to stamp directly over the image without error. I then cleaned off the stamp without removing it and inked it with versamark and stamped perfectly twice again over the Calypso Coral. I then sprinkled the image with clear embossing powder and heat set to get a nice shine. I fussy cut the flowers, adhered them to the card with dimensionals and added the Night of Navy enamel dots above each flower.
The inside of the card is matted in Night of Navy and decorated with the Calypso Coral tulip stickers from the memories and more pack.
I hope you liked this cheerful, fun thank you card! I really enjoyed thinking of the 70’s – flower power, bell bottomed jeans and tie died shirts – while making it.
