Bloom




I made this card awhile ago for a swap with one of my fabulous SBS 13 sisters! I did not post it because I wanted it to be a surprise for her! I had so much fun making this card. My inspiration was the clock I made a few weeks ago. Plus I just love the Bloomin' Beautiful set from SU! I can't get enough of it right now! That and blue bayou too!!!

All of the products are from Stampin' Up! I started with whisper white, soft sky, and blue bayou card stock. I used the Bloomin' Beautiful set. I stamped everything in black Stazon. I did this so that when I color in the image, the image will not blend into or bleed into my coloring. I colored the images with the blender pen using the soft sky, blue bayou, garden green, and chocolate chip classic ink pads. I stamped the bee onto a different piece of paper then I colored it in with my barely banana marker. I outlined the flowers and the saying with the blender pen and the soft sky ink pad. I added the double stitch blue bayou ribbon and attached it with two silver brads. I layered that onto the next layer that I tore at the bottom. I attached that to the last layer. I pierced this layer with my piercing tool and my mat pack. I also used my color spritzer with close to cocoa to add some more fun. I really like how it turned out! I hope she liked it!

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
