The Bloom by Bloom stamp is featured in my April Class in the Mail. With many images of flowers, some a little bit abstract, they make it so easy to create focal images and backgrounds alike. Combined with the Bitty Blooms punch pack they make some fun projects and you save 10% buying them as a bundle. This set is on the retiring list so get it while you can.
This particular set has become more appealing to me as I’ve used it in softer, pastel shades. I love this flower in Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, Blushing Bride and lighter colours. This card is based on a simple sketch and combines Highland Heather, Gray Granite and Whisper White.I love the soft look of this combination of colours.
I’ve stamped the flowers in Highland Heather on the card base. Then I added a panel of Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals range. The Dot to Dot Embossing Folder adds the base for my flower. Embossing folders are such an easy way to add texture to projects.
I’ve added some Gray Granite ribbon which has been tied off in a knot together with the tulle ribbon to add to the softness of this card. The sentiment is from Banners for You stamp set which will be retiring along with the matching Bunch of Banners dies.

Today I have not 1 but 3 cards to share with you.They are easy to recreate and make the most of the lovely Desginer Series Paper. The Happiness Blooms suite is such a bright and happy range. The Double side paper features flowers and designs that coordinate in vibrant colours.
My sketch is very simple with a basic Designer Paper layer at 9.9cm x 14.2cm. I wanted to let these papers stand out so I didn’t embellish much. I have added a panel which has been die cut with the Rectangle Stitched Framelit dies and then embossed with the Dot to Dot embossing folder.
The sentiment is from the Part of my Story stamp set. I won this at Prize Patrol at November On Stage, which is a fun event for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. However I hadn’t opened it as yet. These sentiments seemed to match with the fun generated in this suite so I thought this was the day to use them.
Each card has been accented differently. For this first card, I just fussy cut one of the flowers from the paper itself and attached it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To create extra interest on this card, I used the Bitty Blooms punches and layered flowers in Night of Navy and Petal Pink. Punches are so quick and a fun way to create. I think this is such a fun sentiment and would be suitable to send someone you haven’t caught up with a while or someone who just needs some cheering up. With those bright colours (how about that Pineapple Punch?) it is definitely going to boost someone’s spirits.
This sentiment has been punched and layered onto Pineapple Punch labels from the Story Label punch. This is a Sale-A-Bration coordination item and is only available until 31st March. – That’s only 11 days away. Free products also are only available for these few days so hurry to grab yourself some fabulous items.
How cute is that punch? Punches are the best for easy and quick papercrafting, you can’t go past them.

What’s on this weekend for you? We are enjoying the labour day long weekend and not much labour being done here. Just relaxing watching movies and crafting.
I finally got the Bloom by Bloom bundle in my last order so here it is on Step-it-Up Sunday. It is a bright and cheerful suite and the Designer Paper is so colourful that I really wanted to showcase it. Check out the Advanced card where I have used a good range of this paper.
This stamp set really lends itself to the #simplestamping trend that Stampin’ Up! are promoting. I found the Stamparatus was a very useful tool when stamping with this photopolymer set. There were times I didn’t get a full image first go and with the Stamparatus I was able to restamp without wasting cardstock. Although the flower shows up quite dark in this photo, it is Calypso Coral but I think my ink pad was a bit juicy.
The edges have been punched with Detailed Trio punch and I added ribbon with double sided tape which was attached at the back of the Whisper White cardstock.
To create the ombrè look on this flower, I used the Stamparatus to first stamp it in Pineapple Punch. Then using a sponge dauber, I added Calypso Coral onto the stamp and restamped over the flower. I did this a few times until I achieved the desired colour. Without a Stamparatus this would be a bit tricky.
Then I fussy cut the flower and leaves and adhered with Dimensionals. A panel of Designer Paper ties all the colours together.
A Joy Fold is used to step this card up. This is a really great fancy fold for using up your stash of patterned paper and showcasing it and what a fun card for someone to receive. You have lots of room to write inside as well.
I added a bow to this card using a glue dot. The satin ribbon which is part of this suite really drapes well and makes it easy to tie a bow.
