Blooms & Bliss Suite Class

Hi Crafters!

Today I have a bunch of cards for you, which I have prepared for my Blooms & Bliss Suite Class that I have on tomorrow. Most of my product list comes from the Blooms & Bliss Suite from page 138-139 of the 2016 Annual Catalog, including the Blooms & Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set, Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon, Blooms & Bliss Cardstock Pack (Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum & Island Indigo), Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper & the Delicate White Doilies. I have not used any other stamp sets or DSP. I have done a couple of cards in each style with slightly different colours.

I have entered this set of cards into the Crazy Crafters Project Highlights. You can see all the entries & vote for your favourites from 6:30pm AEST tonight, Friday 19 August 2016.

For this first set, I have used the Mint Macaron & Island Indigo cardstock & DSP. I have used the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits to cut out the lace heart & then I have gone over the top with the Bold Butterfly Thinlits, using a full Butterfly behind & the Bloomin' Heart Butterfly over the top - it is recommended that you use a Precision Plate on your Big Shot for the Bloomin' Hearts Thinlits as they are so delicate.

I have also used the Delicate White Doilies, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate sheets & Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon. I have used the now retired Washi Label Punch for the sentiment, which is stamped in Island Indigo. I have stapled the sentiment to the ribbon & some torn DSP.

For this next set, I have used the design from Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge & the colours from Pootles Colour Challenge (particularly the first card). The cardstock colours I have used are Pool Party & Sweet Sugarplum. I have used the now retired White Tea Lace Doilies, which are slightly smaller than the Delicate White Doilies. I love the print I have used for the middle circle, it reminds me of all the cherry blossom trees which are blooming at the moment. I have inked the flowers around the outside in the same colours as the cardstock.

 For this next set, I have used Island Indigo, Sweet Sugarplum & Mint Macaron carstock. I have cut out the center of the cardstock with the Lots of Labels Thinlits & I have used these on the tags below. I have stamped the sentiment with Versamark & used Copper Heat Embossing Powder & the Heat Tool to set it. The leaves are stamped in the same ink colours as the cardstock used. I have stapled. the Mint Macaron Sheet Linen Ribbon & a length of Blushing Bride Sequin Trim - I find stapling ribbon & trim is the easiest & least fussy way to attach them.

Finally, I have some small tags I made with the Lots of Labels thinlits. I have stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum & the flowers in Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride & Island Indigo. I have also added some Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon. I have added the hole at the top of the tag with the now retired Curvy Trio Punch but you could get a similar look by using the Scalloped Tag Topper & I think that's what they used for the tags in the Blooms & Bliss Suite photos.

And the back of the tags, so you can see where I used the bits I cut out of the DSP on the above cards. Waste not, want not! This print from the DSP is really pretty & you can recreate it with the stamps that are in the Blooms & Wishes stamp set, although I'd still get the DSP for all the smaller prints, cos I think they're really pretty, too!
