Stampin’ Up! Blooming with Kindness!

By | 27 February, 2013

I finally got the Blooming with Kindness Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!!  It’s been on my wish list forever!  You know how it is.  That catalog comes out in June and then every time you sit down for at least a week, that catalog is in your hands and you’re paging through it.  I’ve looked through my Spring Catalog so many times that the cover has actually fallen off!  I love my catalogs.  I mark them up and check off what I have and I circle what I’m hoping to get!

bloomingwithkindnessThe problem is that this stamp set has been on my wish list so long, I couldn’t decide which card I wanted to make first.  I actually have 4 other cards in progress as I write this!  I just felt so inspired once I got this stamp set in my hand, a bunch of possibilities immediately came to mind.  I settled on a variation of the triple time technique.

I only made two layers on this one.  I love this technique with large flower images.  It’s just so perfect for large images.  I also think that this is one of those techniques that never fails to give you a WOW! card every time you use it.  It’s also an easy technique to do.  It’s a technique a new stamper could do that will make it look like you’ve been stamping for a long time!

Here is a video I made on this technique using the Day of Gratitude stamp set a few months ago.  You will notice that today’s card has only two layers and the color palette is much simpler.

Give this technique a try!  Try it a few different ways and see how great it turns out every time!

Supplies for today’s card:

Paper and Ink:  Calypso Coral and Whisper White card stock, Calypso Coral and Early Espresso ink.

Stamp Set:  Blooming with Kindness (#126422)

Accessories:  Stampin’ Trimmer (#126889), Rhinestones (#119246), Pool Party Ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration flyer (Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button set!), Snail adhesive

You will notice that this card did not require a lot of supplies.  A couple of pieces of card stock, one stamp set and a of couple ink pads!!!  This is a great card for someone who is just starting out and has only a few supplies on hand.  Imagine this same card in just Early Espresso ink and card stock.

Treat yourself to something on you wish list today!

Thank you for visiting!

Be inspired!
