Stampin’ Up! Bloom & Grow Celebration Card

Isn’t wet embossing the pièce de résistance of cards? It is so awesome and gratifying to see the change from flat and boring to raised and shiny. The camera doesn’t do it justice. Well, there’s lots of it on tonight’s card. The inspiration came from the 2019-20 Annual Catalog, page 130. Enjoy!

  • The base is Old Olive 4 1/4″ x 11, scored at 5 1/2″.
  • This is topped with a Very Vanilla 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel with the floral image from Bloom & Grow stamped with VersaMark Ink, sprinkled with Gold Embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
  • I stamped the second floral image on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla and repeated the embossing process. Then colored it with the Stampin’ Blends linked below. I cut it out using the coordinating dies. Then cut it in half and mounted it to each side of the Stitched So Sweetly label with Snail after the sentiment was embossed with White Embossing Powder (in hindsite, I think I would like this better in the gold as well).
  • I added some snail to the back center and looped the Gold Shimmer Ribbon to it.
  • Stampin’ Dimensions make it pop.
  • On the inside I embossed the message in gold on a 4×5 1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock.
  • I added the sprig with Old Olive ink and colored it in with the Light Flirty Flamingo and Light Old Olive.
  • The layers are adhered with Snail.

      Thank you, Amy. I love using the blends with the gold embossing. It makes coloring more enjoyable for me.
