As soon as I saw the Occasions Mini catlaogue I knew that I had to have this Bold Blossom stamp set. There are a few reasons that I was immediately drawn to this stamp set – I love anything with flowers, I love the bolder images in this stamp set and I love the price – $11.95 in clear or $15.95 in wood.
And I know I made the right decision! I spend just an hour or so creating with this stamp set the other night and was able to make quite a few cards. I used multiple flowers or just a single stem, punched out the flowers or stamped directly onto the card, dressed the images up with pearls and glimmer brads and used soft and bold colours.
Here are a couple of the cards I made:
This first card uses So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz.
The colours are really soft and subtle and the Basic Pearls seemed like just the right embellishment.
Inks: Pear Pizzazz (119784), Poppy Parade (119782), Daffodil Delight (119667)
Paper: Pear Pizzazz (119795), Poppy Parade (119793), Daffodil Delight (119683), Whisper White (100730)
Punches: 3/4" Circle (119873), 1-1/4" Circle (119865), 1-3/8" Circle (119877)
This card uses Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight.
These colours are a lot bolder than the first card. I used the small oval to punch out the flowers and layered the punch flowers onto a punched 1" circle in the opposite colour of cardstock for a different look from the first card.
I also used the new Pompom Trim in Daffodil Delight. Isn’t it cute?
