Blossoms in Bloom Dimensional Birthday Card

This card features the Blossoms in Blooms Bundle and is sort of an “addendum” to the one posted on October 7th. It was stamped flowers with the delicate outline die cut adhered on top. Well, the petals that fell from the outline die were just too pretty to throw away, plus, I had centers left from this card. So…

The Paper Cuts

  • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: Many Layered Blooms floral outline die cut (4 3/4″ x 5″).
  • Crushed Curry Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card base and the Many Layered Blooms floral outline die cut (4 3/4″ x 5″).
  • Whisper White Cardstock: two 4″ x 5 1/4″ panels for the front and inside, and 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ for the sentiment.

The Creating

  • Lay the metal die upside down on your work surface. Place the petals back in their original location (like putting a puzzle back together, but easier). The backs of the petals will be facing up toward you. Apply Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the backs of 3 of the petals in each flower. Press a Whisper White panel on top and allow the glue to set a minute. Lift up gently, leaving the other 2 petals of each flower in place.
  • Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals on the remaining 2 petals of each flower. Remove the backing and place them on the card where they belong using the other 3 as a guide. The dimensional effect you get is worth the effort! (It’s much more dramatic than the flattened photography shows).
  • Use Paper Snips to trim the flower centers from the Crushed Curry die cut. (Save the flower outline to use on other projects). Adhere inside the petals.
  • With Cherry Cobbler ink stamp “Happy Birthday” on the 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ of Whisper White and flag the ends with the Banner Triple Punch. Pop up on the card front with 3-4 Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add 3 Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
  • On the Whisper White panel for the inside stamp the Blossom in Blooms image (partial) in Cherry Cobbler ink overhanging the bottom edge. Repeat on the envelope flap. Stamp the Crushed Curry centers.
  • The inside greeting is from the Many Mates stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.
Tip: When stamping large stamps and/or dark ink colors on light paper use the Stamparatus so you can do two or three layers of ink to get the depth you are looking for.

Blossoms in Bloom Birthday Card

This card features the Blossoms in Blooms Bundle simply stamped with a die overlay. I love a simple card that looks difficult. Don’t you? This is a Distinktive Stamp Set which has the color variations build in for depth and intensity. You can find a list of Distinktive Stamps on page 114 of the 2020-21 Annual Catalog.

The Paper Cuts

  • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ card base and the floral outline die cut.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: two 5 1/4″ x 4″ panels for the front and inside, and a 1/2″ x 3″ scrap for the sentiment.

I chose Cherry Cobbler for this card because the recipient is a University of Alabama Grad (as I am) and because it reminded me of the colors in the gorgeous mum my sister gave me for my birthday last week. Customization is just one of the benefits of creating your own cards!

The Creating

  • Stamp the large floral image on the front panel in Cherry Cobbler ink. I like to use my Stamparatus for large stamps like this. It ensures that I can realign it if there is a spot that I don’t apply enough pressure to. Stamp the leaves in Mossy Meadow ink. Hit your envelope flap while your at it to save time 😉
  • Stamp the floral centers with Crushed Curry ink and use a Sponge Dauber to add additional color if desired. Don’t forget the envelope flap!
  • With Mossy Meadow ink stamp “Happy Birthday” on the scrap of Whisper White and flag the front end with the Banner Triple Punch. Apply three Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.
  • The inside greeting is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I chose it because it has print (as well as the cursive) to match the greeting in the Blossoms in Bloom sentiment.
  • Use Paper Snips to trim the leaf and small flower outlines from the large floral outline die cut. Save the leaf sprigs. Lay the pieces upside down on the Silicone Craft Sheet, squeeze a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the corner and use 1/8 of a Stampin’ Sponge to apply the glue to the delicate die. (I keep mine in a small plastic container with a binder clip as a handle). Poition the floral outline over the stamped image and press into place. Apply the leaf sprigs on the inside panel.
  • Add the strip with the dimensionals and 3 Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! This month the Inkin’ Krew team is creating “Birthday” themed cards and I am featuring the Blossoms in Bloom bundle and the Many Mates stamp set from the new 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. It also showcases the new 2020-22 In Color products. Enjoy!

The Paper

  • Bumblebee Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″, 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ for the large floral outline die from Many Layered Blossoms Dies.
  • Misty Moonlight Cardstock:  4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: two 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panels (front & inside) and a scrap for the sentiment (3/8″ x 2 5/16″)
  • Vellum Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ for a large floral outline die from Many Layered Blossoms Dies.

Creating the Card Front

  • Adhere the Whisper White panel to the card front and the Misty Moonlight panel on top.
  • Cut the large floral outline die from Many Layered Blossoms Dies from Vellum Cardstock using your die cutting machine. Adhere it to the Misty Moonlight layer with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. Tip: choose locations where the outline is thickest such as the leaf clusters and the floral centers.
  • Stamp the large blossom image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set with VersaMark Ink onto Bumblebee Cardstock (at the time of the making the Bumblebee Ink was not yet available to order, but it is now and you could use it instead). Tip: for large stamps I like to use my Stamparatus. If a spot does not get enough even pressure to stamp clearly all you have to do is close the door and press where needed. It lines up perfectly and works great!
  • Line up the large floral outline die from Many Layered Blossoms Dies over the stamped image and die cut with your die cutting machine. Tip: I use washi tape to secure the die in place so that it doesn’t scoot as I apply it to the plates. Carefully remove the die, but leave the cut pieces in their place on your cutting plate. (Your Take Your Pick tool may come in handy here). This will serve as your pattern to layer your pieces. Tip: Australian Demonstrator, Kylie Bertucci, has a video on Paper Piecing using Press n Seal that you can view here. I tried it and found I stuck to the Press n Seal more than the paper did which led to rearrangement of my cut pieces. My talented team member, Mary Deatherage at Stamps-N-Lingers, had success with it though and you can view here video here. It may work great for you.
  • Do a dry fit to place the flower petals in place over the vellum outline die cut. Decide which petals you would like to be popped and apply Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop them up. Apply the others with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. Save the outline portion for the inside of the card.
  • Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock and apply it to a strip of Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon with Mini Glue Dots. Pop it on the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots in Bumblebee.
So worth it for the added dimension! You can almost see them flutter in the breeze.

Decorating the Inside and Envelope

  • Stamp your sentiment on the inside Whisper White panel with Misty Moonlight Ink (this came early in the Paper Pumpkin Kit, yay!)
  • Adhere the left over Bumblebee outline floral die cut to the inside of the card and trim anything hanging over with Paper Snips.
  • Stamp a portion of the floral stamp on the envelope and add the floral centers. (I had to use Crushed Curry which is a little brighter and not as golden, but I recommend you use Bumblebee now that it’s available).
