Happy Monday! Today I've got another What Will You Stamp project for you and this week we are featuring the Blooming' Love stamp set for Stampin' Up! This is a great set all full of hearts and flowers. It's perfect for making Valentine's Day cards and love cards... Time for a little truth telling. Hearts and flowers are not really my thing (unless I get to color-lol!). I wanted to figure out a way to use this stamp set that had absolutely nothing to do with Valentine's Day or Love themed cards.
I decided to use the big heart stamp as a background stamp. I stamped it on Coastal Cabana and colored the ink in with Clear Wink of Stella. I love the subtle, shimmery look that this gave. Then I punched out butterflies using both of my butterfly punches. I ran a strip of basic black through the Big Shot to emboss it and give the background some elegant texture. Then I punched circles out of white corrugated paper and used dimensionals to adhere the butterflies on top. A couple of rhinestones and a "Happy Birthday" and I was done! Once I figured out what I wanted to do this was a quick and easy card. I hope you like it!
Here's what the whole Bloomin Love set looks like. It's pretty, right? I think those single flower stamps could make some really beautiful backgrounds or homemade DSP. What do you think? I hope you will hop on over to the What Will You Stamp challenge blog and join us for this week's fun!
