Stampin’ Up! In Bloom Thinking of You Card

Good morning! Here’s a Thinking of You card made with the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle and the Sale A Bration Paper Blooms designer series paper. The Paper Blooms DSP goes so well with the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle but it’s only available through next Sunday as Sale A Bration ends on February 28! I also used the new Happy Thoughts cling stamp set for the pretty sentiments. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of this post along with the sizes of card stock used.

I embossed a strip of Seaside Spray card stock with the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a strip of Night of Navy card stock. I adhered them both to a Paper Blooms panel and then adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat. I popped the panel on the front of a Seaside Spray card base.

One of the sheets in the Paper Blooms DSP pack has different colored watercolor circles. I used the Pierced Blooms dies from the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle to cut out the circles. I cut out some leaves, the flower and flower centers and bow from these circles and adhered the leaves to the strip with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the label from the Pierced Blooms dies.

I adhered the label to the embossed strip next to the leaves. I adhered the bow to the strip and adhered the layers to the flower. I popped the flower on the strip with dimensionals and finished the front with some butterfly gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flowers from the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom photopolymer stamp set in Seaside Spray and Night of Navy ink in the top corner. I adhered a strip of the Paper Blooms DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle has pretty floral stamps and wonderful sentiments, but the dies are just fabulous! And it goes real well with the Paper Blooms Sale A Bration designer series paper pack. And if you get the bundle, you get the bundle 10% savings and you are just $1.50 short of qualifying for a Sale A Bration Level 1 FREE item. But you don’t have much time left because Sale A Bration runs through this Sunday, February 28.

Stampin’ Up! In Bloom Birthday Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I have a sweet floral Birthday Card made with the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle and the pretty Paper Blooms Sale A Bration designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week, and here’s the pretty sketch we’re using. When I saw it, I knew that I needed to use the Paper Blooms designer series paper so I could use the pretty Rococo Rose stripes on the bottom.

I adhered the striped Rococo Rose Paper Blooms paper to the bottom of a Basic White panel and adhered the Rococo Rose floral paper to the top. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom stamp set in Rococo Rose on a strip of Basic White and trimmed the end with the Banner Pick A Punch. I punched the end of a Rococo Rose strip and embossed it with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. I adhered the label to the embossed banner and adhered them both to the DSP panel on the seam.

I cut the two large stitched flowers from Balmy Blue using the Pierced Blooms dies from the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle. I cut the medium flowers from So Saffron and the leaves and flower centers from Smoky Slate. Finally I cut two sets of the small flowers from Rococo Rose. I used the Stampin’ Up Color Coach for Rococo Rose to choose my color palette, pairing it with Balmy Blue and Smoky Slate. You can find it on the second page HERE. I really like how this color palette came out, the Balmy Blue flowers really pop! I also love these die cut flowers and leaves!! It was so much fun playing with them to figure out what looked best layered together.

I layered the flowers, adhering them with liquid glue and arranged them on the DSP panel, adhering them with liquid glue and popping the one on front with dimensionals. I added rhinestone gems to the flower centers and adhered the DSP panel to the front of a Rococo Rose card base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, trimmed the bottom of a Basic White panel with the Rococo Rose floral paper from the Paper Blooms DSP and adhered more dic cut flowers. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle is a great bundle with pretty images for stamped flowers, fun sentiments (I love this font) and awesome coordinating dies. There are 25 dies in the Pierced Blooms die set, and the stitching is just gorgeous!! And don’t forget that the Paper Blooms designer series paper is free with a $50 purchase (before shipping and taxes) during Sale A Bration!

Stampin’ Up! In Bloom Cards

Good Morning! Today I want to share some pretty cards made with the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle. This is a versatile floral bundle with bold, modern graphic designs and fun sentiments. And the flower die cuts have stitched motifs that give the flowers extra texture and interest! Here are some simple cards made by the Stampin’ Up! Design team to give you some ideas:

I love how the large flowers are double stamped, giving a fuller flower and adding dimension. See the cute stitched die cut flowers? I have to try the pleated ribbon technique soon – that’s such a nice touch.


This card is so retro and I just love it! I especially love the diagonal sentiment inset contrasting with the stamped floral faux DSP!

This card really shows off the stitched die cut flowers and leaves. How cleaver to have a box opening with a burst of flowers!

There are simple recipes for making these cards with the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle, and you can get them HERE. I need to get this bundle out and play with it more this week as I have only used it on last week’s card with the Paper Blooms Sale A Bration DSP. Here are close ups of the stamps and dies. Click on the pictures to get the full descriptions and to shop in my Online Store.

Thanks for looking and I hope you consider the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle for your next floral stamp set.

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook page at 1:00 ET this afternoon. Stop by my Facebook Page to see my card made with the Handsomely Suited bundle. Look forward to seeing you then!

Stampin’ Up! In Bloom Pocket Friendship Note Card

Good morning! Today I have a quick fun card made with the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom photopolymer stamp set and the Paper Blooms Sale A Bration designer series paper. It’s a pocket card! So it has a panel that is pulled out to write your sentiment. And it all fits in a regular A2 sized envelope. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered the short side of the Paper Blooms designer series paper down with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the two sides with Tear & Tape to create a pocket. This is a fun way to see both sides of the pretty designer series paper. Then I adhered the pocket to a Night of Navy card base with Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel and punched it out with the Label Me Fancy Punch. I punched a Rococo Rose panel with the Label Me Lovely Punch and adhered the label on top with dimensionals. I adhered it to the pocket flap with Stampin’ Seal and finished the pocket with a Night of Navy bow and rhinestone.

I stamped the little flower from the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom stamp set in Rococo Rose at the top and bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower centers in Night of Navy ink and adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat. This leaves plenty of room to write a message and the card easily slides in and out of the pocket.

The Sale A Bration Paper Blooms designer series paper is FREE with a $50 order before shipping and handling and it goes beautifully with the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle! Both sides of the paper are so pretty and this pocket card design is a great way to show them both off. Plus it’s easy to make and a fun and different project. Give it a try!

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook page at 1:00 ET this afternoon. Stop by my Facebook Page to see my card made with the Seaside View cling stamp set. Look forward to seeing you then!
