A basket of flowers can stay fresh for a long time, when made with paper.

All you need is the Basket Of Blooms Stamp Set, and the Small Bloom Punch. I happen to have an extra Small Bloom Punch, and I will send it to the first person who places a 100.00 order with me, and contacts me with their name and address.

It won’t be hard to find $100.00 of items you want, because this is the day, August 4th, everyone can order from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog! Yipee!

Even if you aren’t my first customer to order, you’ll still receive my August Host Code Gift for a qualifying order, and a chance to win the drawing prize. You’ll find all the details below, plus instructions for today’s card.

Basket Of Blooms.



First, make the tablecloth with the Buffalo Check Background Stamp. Place the stamp on the Stamparatus lid, apply Pear Pizzazz Ink and stamp on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. I inked and stamped several times to get good coverage.

Cut a section with the long, rectangle die from Ornate Layers.


Stamp the basket from the Basket Of Blooms Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock. Fussy cut the basket, and color it with Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends.

Stamp five flowers in Bumblebee Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, color with a Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend, and use the Small Bloom Punch for cutting. I stamped the center with a tiny stamp from the retired stamp set, Thoughtful Blooms, and Cinnamon Cider Ink. If you don’t have the stamp set, you can improvise.


Use the Well Written Die to cut the word “friend” from Crumb Cake Cardstock. Be careful not to lose the “i.”


Make the card base with Crumb Cake Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  Cut a layer from Whisper White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″.

Now that you have all the pieces, arrange them, so you can see where to stamp the six leaves, in Pear Pizazz Ink, on the white layer. Color the leaves with a Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend, and glue the layer to the card base.

Glue the tablecloth, “friend,” and one flower flat. Place the basket and four flowers on Mini Dimensionals, and attach.

Now all you need to do is decide which friend will be receiving this lovely “basket of blooms.”


I was inspired by TGIF.
