Stampin’ Up! Bloom & Grow Congrats

One of the nice things about stamping is that as your collections grows so do your options. Sometimes we forget we can mix and match, but Stampin’ Up! makes it easy with colors and images that coordinate. Here I used the Bloom & Grow Stamp Set with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper and the Peaceful Moments sentiments. The star of the show is the DSP. I picked it first, and it chose the stamp and the colors. Enjoy!

The Cutting

  • Whisper White Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and a Stitched So Sweetly Die (largest scallop rectangle)
  • Best Dressed DSP: 5 1/4″ x 4 and 3 – 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ strips

The Creating

  • Stamp the floral image from Bloom & Grow in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Add the sentiment above it. Cut out with the Stitched So Sweetly die.
  • Use Stampin’ Blends to color the image: Dark Petal Pink, Light Pumpkin Pie, Light & Dark Old Olive, Dark Daffodil Delight, Dark Mint Macaroon, and Dark Highland Heather.
  • Apply the DSP to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. Pop up the rectangle die with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add Wink of Stella to the flower centers.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black on the inside. Add a stip of DSP at the top and bottom with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. (I wanted to add a little extra design since the inside is a flat layer).
  • Add a strip with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to the bottom edge of the envelope. I recommend you not substitute the adhesive because it needs to be strong enough to withstand the postal machines. Make sure to get close to the edges to seal them well.
