Hello friends! After being without power for three days, I'm thrilled to be able to be here for DAY 1 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps February Release Blog Hops!
Today's feature is:This 4"x6" set includes 6 images that can be used together for layering or to create backgrounds. It also includes 6 beautiful sentiments that have to do with blooming and growing…a lovely new set to get you thinking about spring…and right now I wouldn't mind a little bit of Spring!
- Large Flower Petal image measures approximately 1.5" x 1.5"
- Designed by Korin Sutherland
- Stamp set is $15
Here are a couple of cards using Bloom & Grow to spark your creativity!
Creative Nugget: On this card the flower grows with each passing moment to match the sentiment. Gelatos were colored directly on the stamps and spritzed with water to create a watercolor effect. The larger flower image was stamped off once before stamping on the card for a lighter shadow behind the smaller image which was stamped full strength. The same technique was used for the stems. The sentiment banner was hand cut and popped onto the right side of the card, and Majestic Monarchs, cut with the Monarch Dies and colored with Gelatos, were added along with a few pearls to finish the card.
Creative Nugget: On this card a square was masked in the middle of the panel along with a border. Light sponging with Summer Sky Memento ink was done between the masks. A combination of Memento inks and Stampin' Up! inks were used to stamp several images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set. The masks were removed and the sentiment was stamped in the middle. A Doily Border Die, a few pearls, and gingham ribbon were used to finish the card!
