Blended Bloom

Ahh, the things we do for our kids…even when they aren’t living at home anymore!  Our son drove his wife and Carter to her parents’ home a few states away, then flew back home.  He asked us to pick him up at the airport.  No problem!  Well, the original time to arrive was 11:45 PM…late enough!  But because of storms and delays, he ended up getting in at 2:00 AM!  Yep…this puppy is dragging today even though I got to sleep in a little.  Our poor son had to get up early and go into work!  I see a nap in my afternoon plans.


I was originally going to use this card for one of my Create with Connie and Mary challenges, but decided to go a different route.  So, I thought I’d share it now.  The Blended Bloom stamp is perfect for practicing with the Blendabilities.  I hope they will be available to customers soon!


Blended Bloom

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Pool Party, folded in half.
  • I embossed the 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Whisper White with the Honeycomb folder.
  • On top of that I added the chevron pattern from Brights Backgrounds DSP.
  • The flower I stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Pad on Whisper White and used the Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Assortments of Blendabilities, then I cut it out.  I added a Pearl in the center and placed it on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I stamped Seize the Cake from Something to Say with Tuxedo Black on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut a flag end.
  • Finally, I punched two flowers from Itty Bitty Accessories from Pool Party and added Pearls to the center.


I really like how the warm yellow and orange pops against the coolness of the Pool Party!
