Accented Blooms: Thinking of You

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing some fun cards / project created with the Accented Blooms stamp set … one that now sits on the retiring list.  You can create big messages with a few words and some beautiful imagery to highlight it.  These stamps have deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression each time.

The greetings used on the cards today are two that are so fitting for me right now; Always Thinking of You and Thank You!  Here is the card that I created …

I used the Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends duos. I also used the Color Lifter … that little tool works awesome put pull some color off like I did in the large flower. One of the benefits of using the Stampin’ Blends is that I could tone down the brightness of the Daffodil Delight by blending with a touch of the Soft Suede.

Another tool I used while creating this card is the Stamparatus … I knew I would be making several of these cards so I wanted to ensure I got my greeting positioned properly each time. You could however stamp the greeting and then punch it out with the coordinating punch and pop it up, that would also give you additional dimension.

This card was created by the Stampin’ Up! home office and is featured in the catalog …

The card uses watercoloring to add color to the flowers, and the greeting images is stamped and punched out with the coordinating Tailored Tag punch.  The punched greeting and die cut florals behind the stamped image adds so much dimension and texture to the card.

Are you ready for a sweet little treat? …  Love you too!!

The precious little gift used the Clear Tiny treat boxes (pg.173) and a simple banner folded over the treat box.  The banner is stamped with the element images included in the Accented Blooms stamp set.  And our greeting … well, that was created by using just a part of the stamped greeting. Sometimes we forget how a simple little stampin’ tip like this can help transform your projects.

Here are some of the basic supplies used to create these projects …

Thank you for stopping by today. My wish for you is to have a wonderful day.
