I’m putting the Basket Of Blooms Stamp Set to use once again, with its coordinating Small Bloom Punch.
The vine was created with two stamps from the Basket Of Blooms Stamp Set. I first stamped the long branch in Garden Green Ink on Whisper White Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″), angled, and toward the right side. Then, I stamped it a second time, in the opposite direction, with the ends meeting in the middle. Next, I stamped the short brach three times, with all the ends meeting in the middle. Also, after inking the stamp, I stamped on scratch paper first, to make the ink a lighter shade. This is called “stamping off,” and something I do frequently.
After coloring the vine with a Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend, I used the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting the layer, and glued it to a Garden Green card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″).
It’s kinda sad to cut off part of the vine, but it creates the feeling of extending beyond the card, which is nice, right?
Now for the blooms! I stamped the flower in Melon Mambo Ink, three times, on Whisper White Cardstock, and used the Small Bloom Punch for cutting. This is really fun; too bad I only needed three! Then, I colored them with a Light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend, and attached them with Mini-Dimensionals. See how I covered the connecting branches in the middle?
Last, but not least, the sentiment. “Sent with love” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Garden Green Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die. Don’t you love the shape of this die?
I think you can see how I was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch.
