Blooming with Kindness in Wisteria Wonder Plus Holiday Catalog Share Announcement

I used the Blooming with Kindness, Papillon Potpourri and Wetland stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my card share today.  My card design was inspired by the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Challenge #126.

Blooming with Kindness

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Wetlands stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Afternoon Picnic DSP.  I sprinkled the sentiment with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I adhered the DSP panel to a panel of Crushed Curry Core’dinations Card Stock, then to a Wisteria Wonder card base with SNAIL.

Next, I stamped the flower image from the Blooming With Kindness stamp set in VersaMark ink on a piece of Watercolor Paper, sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder, heat embossed it and cut it out with a Circles Collection Framelits die.  Then I used my Aqua Painter and my ink pads to paint the flower image and I set it aside to dry.  I cut a circle using the Circles Collection Framelits die from Wisteria Wonder Core’dinations Card Stock, sanded the edge, sponged it with Crushed Curry ink and adhered it to the flower circle die cut, then to the card front with SNAIL.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set in VersaMark ink on Crushed Curry Core’dinations Card Stock, sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I punched out the butterfly image with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional to the front of the card.  I also added a Crushed Curry Button with a Glue Dot, then two smaller pearls and one large Pearl to finish the card front.

I finished the inside of the card by adhering a strip of the Afternoon Picnic DSP to a Very Vanilla panel.

  1. I think that Blooming with Kindness is my favorite all time stamp set. The flower is so versatile and now you have provided me with an additional idea. I don’t know why I don’t heat emboss more but your card has truly inspired me. When I seen that flower I just had to know how you made it stand out so much. Thanks Amy
