Bloomin Love

I find myself being a blog watcher.  I check out certain bloggers in the Stamping Community looking forward to their projects every week.  One of my favorites is Ann Schach at  Ann took a much needed break at the last part of 2015 and I for one missed her posts very much.  That’s why I was so glad to see she is blogging and creating again.  We all certainly benefit.  Ann first posted this card on Jan 1, 2016.  You can see her post Here.  I loved it so much I cased it, and used it in one of my classes.  Other than the color changes for the flowers, it’s pretty much her card, at least until you get to the inside.

To get the best results with this die, use the Precision cutting plate on the bottom of your bigshot sandwich, then use the Big Shot Die Brush and pad to remove all those tiny pieces.  It works like a charm and gives that laser cut look.

To create the background, I used the Blooming Heart thinlit die itself as a mask.  I layed it down on the cardstock and sponged around it using Sahara Sand ink.  I really like how the heart showes through without being too overpowering.  Now I’m wondering how many other thinlits I could use this technique.

I also liked the versatility of this card.  With the same card front, I created three different messages for the inside, and all feel appropriate.

The Rose Wonder Stamp Set was the perfect accent with the frame and sentiments.

 Some of my class members used Love You from the Bloomin Love stamp set that coordinates with the thinlits for a great valentine card.
