Story of Elegance

Hello!  Well here we are, another work week in the books.  What a blessed and glorious moment.  I’m grateful to have a job that I love and work that makes my heart sing.  When you’re fortunate enough to do what you love it truly is a blessing!

I love my Stampin’ Up! business because I get to choose how much I put into my business and when.  Choices are always great, and getting paid to have fun is a wonderful thing!  Today I’m having fun with the Art In Bloom bundle; comprised of the Art In Bloom stamp set, and the Bloom dies.  There so much to love about this bundle.  The sentiments are as sweet as they are unique.  It has flowers, which of course are my favorite and the dies that coordinate with the stamp set are wonderful time savers.  I love that I can use one die to cut three flowers.  Another example of the wonderful coordination of our products.  Yes!

Here’s the card I’m sharing today.

Thank You card made with Stampin' Up! products

Art In Bloom Thank You

I just love this sentiment.  If you’re reading this post and you leave me a comment, this card is just for you!  I love it when viewers comment, even if the card I share is not their to their liking.  Feedback is wonderful and it makes me happy.

As you see, I’m still playing a bit with the Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and the Copper Embossing powder – same as earlier this week, but in a different way.  Here’s a closer look.

A Closer Look

Isn’t that tiny bit of shine on the leaves great?  Love this Metallic Specialty Paper!

Elegance Made Easy 

This card has a few more steps to it than most of my cards, but it’s still easy to do.  I cut a panel of Rocco Rose card stock to 4″ x 5’14”.  (Gotta use up my stash of retired paper.)  Then I used the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder on a panel of Blushing Bride card stock cut to 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ and added them both to a card base of Thick Basic White card stock.

The leaves were cut from Rose Gold foil, and I used the Leaf punch to make three white sprigs.  ( Even though I used the Leaf punch, if you don’t have it, the Sprig punch works nicely here too.)  On spare pieces of Basic White card stock I stamped the triple flower – three times- once in Rocco Rose ink, once in Blushing Bride ink and the final one in VersaMark and heat embossed using Cooper embossing powder.   I used the flower die to cut the flowers.  I have flowers left over that I will reserve for future projects.  Assemble the flowers and leaves together using your favorite adhesive.

Next, I stamped the sentiment in Rocco Rose ink, and used the die from the bundle to cut it.  I added the sentiment to the floral arrangement using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels around for a little extra touch of sweet.

Finish things off by stamping a flower onto the the envelope front and flap to match and project complete!
