Addicted to Happiness Blooms

Happiness Blooms is absolutely addicting. It has such a presence that it practically makes the card all by itself:

Maui Stamper Stampin' Up! Bloom By Bloom

  • Color Palette: Night of Navy, Call Me Clover, Calypso Coral, Whisper White

Maui Stamper Stampin' Up! Bloom By Bloom

This card is just a few rectangular pieces of paper, one stamp, one color of ink, two short bits of ribbon, and some adhesive. The ribbon is made into loops and secured with Mini Glue Dots. The sentiment panel is raised on Stampin’ Dimensionals (which allows room for the ribbon to breathe). The colors are bright and suitable for nearly any occasion (except perhaps a sympathy card…I don’t think I would choose this design for that purpose.)

Pretty cards don’t have to be difficult! Have some fun with stamping. If you need supplies, check out the Happiness Blooms suite HERE.

A Bloomin’ Birthday

I’m channeling my inner ND Mom (thankfully, the days of tuition payments are over) with the colors in today’s card. I’ve always loved the various combinations of blue and green, and these particular tones bring back fond memories. The Happiness Blooms DSP is a real winner!

Still Bloom By Bloomin’

The Happiness Blooms DSP has really inspired me. The images remind me of Marimekko, a Finnish design house that I’ve loved all my adult life. The colors are bright and the designs are cheerful, with options suitable for both men and women. It’s perfect for a suit of cards.

Bloom By Bloom Card Class on Maui!

I am head-over-heels in love with Bloom By Bloom, the new Occasions catalog stamp set with a definite mid-century modern aesthetic. It’s fresh, it’s versatile, and it has a gorgeous suite of complimentary products. Time for a class!Maui Stamper Stampin' Up! Bloom By Bloom

There’s a little bit of fussy cutting involved (c’mon, Stampin’ Up!, we could have used framelits on this one!) but it’s not very technical because the lines are clean. The Hexagon TIEF and the repeating irregular circles in the DSP work well together, and a sparkly rhinestone jewel is the finishing touch.
