Blooming with Love



You can see the updated Last Chance Retiring Lists HERE!


Here is another retiring set, Blooming with Love, that I’m REALLY going to miss!  I held a Stamp Camp a month or so ago and featured this stamp set.  It is really pretty and easy to color a variety of different ways…Watercolor Crayons, Watercolor Pencils, Ink pads with AquaPainter, etc.  I like the variety of the different images in this set.  I’m sure it will stay in my collection!

This card also features the retiring Specialty Designer Paper Parisian Breeze.  I love the Chocolate Chip brocade in this package, along with the bold stripes.  The colors of Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip and Kraft really appeal to me!

For this card, I started with a base card of Baja Breeze.  I wrapped the Baja Breeze stripe ribbon around the layer of Parisian Breeze Brocade DSP and adhered it to the base.  I stamped the trio of flower containers from Blooming With Love with Basic Brown on Whisper White and colored them using my AquaPainter and ink pads.  The center pot, I stamped the small pot image on the the Polka Dot DSP in that same package and cut it out, then popped it up with dimensionals  I layered this piece on Baja Breeze cardstock and popped the entire unit up with dimensionals.  Finally, I punched two 1/2 circles and adhered them to the blank space at the bottom.  Easy and quick to pull together.

I’m off to my stamp room to create today!  Yeah!  Make sure to get your retiring accessories while supplies last!  The retiring stamp sets will be available until the end of the month.  Email or place your ONLINE order now!
