Brushed Blooms Week – Project #1

Happy Monday!

Birthday week is in full swing in our household. Two yesterday and two more over the next two days. That being said, these posts will be posted at all different times because I don’t plan making the cards and posts ahead of time. I like doing them each day. I worked on today’s project early in the morning and only needed the sentiment, but then had to run errands and attend Scouts with my youngest. So here we are at 10:30 at night finishing the daily post.

This week my oldest drew Brushed Blooms from the hat for the stamp set of the week. I decided to challenge myself by making a monochromatic card using Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana. This stamp set has a matching die set called Beautiful Brushstrokes that contains 10 dies.

I started out with a Bermuda Bay card base that measures 8-1/2″x5-1/2″ and is scored at 4-1/4″ for a crisp fold. Then, using my bone folder, I burnished the edge so that it would lie flat (or is it lay? I always get those confused!)

Next I took my 4″x5-1/4″ Basic White card front decorated it using a decorative mask, Bermuda Bay ink, Coastal Cabana ink, and a blending brush to make the polka dot background. Then, using the large die in the Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies set I cut out the paintbrush strokes so the Bermuda Bay card base showed through.

Next, using the layered flower dies, I made the layered flower using Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay cardstocks. Then, using Basic White cardstock, I stamped flowers in Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay and cut them out with the corresponding dies. Before I put them on the card front, I taped them together with Scotch tape to position them as I liked, then used Dimensionals to glue them to the card.

I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of Basic White that I had cut to 2-3/4″x3/4″. I trimmed the edges to make banner edges and then matted it. I used Dimensionals to pop it up and put Polka Dot Tulle ribbon underneath. I stamped one more flower and cut it out with the corresponding die to add to the corner. I also added some clear gems to add a little sparkle.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Make sure to subscribe to Let It Snow Stamping so you never miss another blog post. Every week I pick a stamp set and make one project (possibly two) every weekday. As an added bonus I also make videos for new techniques. The techniques can also be found under the Technique Corner tab.
