Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love It's In The Air

Hi Stampin' Friends!!

Are you ready for another Bloomin' Love card? Well ready or not I have one for you!

Stamps: Bloomin' Love
Ink: Rose Red, Blushing Bride
Paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Love Blossoms DSP
Accessories: Circle Punch, Banner Triple Punch, Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon, Rhinestone Jewels, Wooden Heart (Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit), Stamping Sponges

Card kit includes:

1 - Crumb Cake card base
1 - Whisper White card front
3 - Love Blossoms DSP banners of varying sizes
1 - Whisper White circle
4 - Rhinestone jewels
1 - Wooden heart
1 - Blushing Bride cotton ribbon


Stamp the "it's in the air" sentiment on the bottom right corner of the Whisper White card front using Rose Red ink. (Do this step first, BEFORE attaching the card front to the card base in case you mess up and want to stamp again on the other side.)
Attach the Whisper White card front to the Crumb Cake card base using Fast Fuse or SNAIL.
Layer and attach the three Love Blossoms banners to the Whisper White card front using SNAIL or Fast Fuse. I slightly "curled" the bottom of my banners using my bone folder so that my banners would not lay too flat.
Ink up the heart stamp using Blushing Bride ink. Using a stamping sponge, add a little bit of Rose Red ink to parts of the stamp. "Huff" (breathe slightly) on your stamp before stamping onto the Whisper White circle.
Attach the Whisper White circle to the card front using Dimensionals.
Add Rhinestone jewels to the stamped heart image.
Place the wooden heart onto the card front using Glue Dots.
Tie the Blushing Bride cotton ribbon to the top of the card.

With a different sentiment, this card could be used for a variety of occasions. Birthday. Just because. Bridal Shower. Thinking of You. Welcome Baby. Really, it's up to your imagination!!

I finally bought myself some new stamping sponges. It's been well over five years since I purchased my first ones and they are starting to wear out. Especially the ones I use often. I decided to cut my sponges in eighths. I like them a little smaller. They are easier for me to get into tiny nooks and crannies with.

After cutting them to size, I punch out a Decorative Label in the same color as the ink I plan on using for that particular sponge. In this case, it is Rose Red. Then I fold it in half and staple it to the sponge. It acts as a handle and a reminder of what color ink is on the sponge. 

Stamping Sponges #101610 are on page 163 of the regular catalog. They come three in a pack for only $3.50. Such a great bargain!! Make sure you add them to your next order.
