Stampin’ Up! Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts Bloom Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set to create a clean and simple card to share with you today.

I started by coloring a few random flowers on a panel of Petal Passion DSP with the Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the panel to a Basic Black card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered a panel of Calypso Coral ink over the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the image from the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I colored the image with the Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers as well as Light Smoky Slate and Dark Pool Party and Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends.  I also used the Color Lifter to color over the Old Olive ink on the background.

I stamped the sentiment from the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set in Calypso Coral ink below the flower cart image on the Whisper White card stock panel.  Then I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Calypso Coral ink with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a strand of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine around the layered panel twice and tied a knot.  I added one of the wooden hearts from the Hearts & Stars Elements to the bow as I was tying it and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel next to the cart to finish it.

I inked the cart image from the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamped it three times on scrap paper and then stamped it on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.
