Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Spring Blooms

I decided to create this pretty spring blooms card for last week’s Card & Cuppa sessions.

Spring Blooms Card & Cuppa Project. Designed and Handmade by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

My inspiration for this project was Page 10 of the new Spring/Summer Catalogue.

This project uses various punches, Leaf Punch, Sprig Punch, Detailed Trio Punch, Pretty Label Punch and Bitty Blooms Punch Pack. Falling Flowers, Happy Birthday Gorgeous and Bloom by Bloom are the stamp sets used.

For this card I combined a Soft Sea Foam base and background with Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow Leaves, plus Rich Razzleberry and Petal Pink flowers.

Once everything is stamped and punched, it’s assembly time. The leaves are stuck under where the sentiment is going. When the sentiment is in place, an additional piece of leaf and flower are added on top

Due to the flowers being very tiny, they are all attached using Glue Dots.

The finishing touches are the Pearls in the centre of the flowers. These are added using the Take Your Pick tool.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Bloom by Bloom

Last week saw the first Card & Cuppa classes of 2019. As there is a new Spring/Summer Catalogue, along with SAB, I chose to use a new Stamp Set called Bloom by Bloom.

This is a fabulous Stamp Set from the new Happiness Blooms Suite. It has a co-ordinating Bitty Blooms Punch Pack, DSP, Embossing Folder, Embellishments, Memories & More cards, cards & envelopes and Calypso Coral Satin Ribbon too.

For this project, I chose 4 of the images to create a pretty background. Calypso Coral, along with In Color Blueberry Bushel and Call Me Clover were my colour choices.

When using a Photopolymer Stamp Set like this, make sure you use a Stampin’ Pierce Mat underneath. This ensures a crisp image.

The individual flowers are punched using the fabulous pack of punches. These are going to be so useful for those projects where you’d like a little accent.
