Flowering Blooms for Fond Farewell | 3rd Thurs Blog Hop

Welcome to the 3rd Thursday BLOG HOP for April 2021.  This month we are focused on giving our retiring favorites a FOND FAREWELL!  The annual catalog comes to a close May 3rd, so this is the time to really decide what you want off that WISH LIST?  Sometimes, I find I have a lot of sets I wish I had already collected, other times, I’m happy to see what will be coming along next.

Today’s project features the Flowering Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies.  I also incorporated the Artistry Blooms DSP and coordinating sequins.  A touch of BLEND ink for the images and we are ready to share this beauty of a card.

I do have a Stampin’ Show & Tell video to share, where I take you through my creative process of creating the card.  Please enjoy the demonstration, and if you are inspired, leave me a comment below on the blog.  I also share the instructions below for your crafting ease.


Now that you have visited with me, and I hope my project may have inspired you, it’s time to send you along to the next blog with ____________________ .  Please leave me and the other paper crafters comments on our posts.  We just love to know what you think of our ideas.
