Bloom Punch - Well Said by Tammy C. Wilson

03.04.20…..Welcome to Wednesday, my friends! Sale-A-Bration is in full swing and I am having so much fun creating projects with all of the wonderful products available during the special, limited-time promotion!  And…one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration products is the Small Bloom Punch.  Not only does it coordinate with the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (also available during Sale-A-Bration), it can be used for so many other projects as well, as I did with today’s card!

Don’t miss the SALE-A-BRATION!

There is no limit to how much your can earn during SALE-A-BRATION, but this yearly special ends on March 31, 2020.

For this card, I started with a Whisper White Thick Cardstock base, and used the scalloped border die (from the Stitched Be Mine Dies) on the right edge.  Tucked on the inside edge of the card is a small strip of Subtles Designer Series Paper.  For my background, I used some Whisper White Cardstock, and embossed it with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  After I layered a piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock underneath, and adhered it to the cardstock base with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To create the little flowers, I started with two pieces of Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  On a small piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock, I used Flirty Flamingo, along with my Aqua Painter, to add a quick wash of color. On the second piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock, I used Bermuda Bay, along with my Aqua Painter, to add a quick wash of color. (I was also careful not to “scrub” back and forth on the paper so it wouldn’t bubble, and dried the paper quickly with my Heat Tool.) Once the paper was dry, I used the Small Blooms Punch to punch all of the little flowers, and popped them up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment (from the Well Said stamp set) was heat-embossed on Basic Black Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and popped up with a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on several Iridescent Sequins.

Wishing you creativity always,
