Bloom for you Card

If I have a style, and I am not sure that I do, it is probably monochrome. When stuck for ideas, I tend to reach for a very limited colour pallet, or sometimes just clear heat embossing powder letting the card colour speak for itself.

I was in the mood to make a card, and as I love the Bloom for You stamp decided to use that.

With my last Stampin’ Up! order, I bought some of the black Stazon and wondered if I could use that sucessfully. The end result is not exactly monochrome, but uses just three colours.

First I made the card blank using Very Vanilla cardstock. Next came the mat in Crumb Cake which I inked the edges of using Crumb Cake ink.. I used the Black Stazon ink to stamp the Bloom for You image onto a Crumb Cake offcut and when completely dry used the 2 3/8″ scalloped circle punch to cut out the image and then inked the edges. (It does chop off a little of the petals, but I don’t mind that). I added one of the Basic Pearl for a little details.

The Crumb Cake mat was stamped with clear Versamark “ink.” I placed a piece of Very Vanilla satin ribbon on to the card attaching with glue dots to the back of the mat before adding the Stazon flower and then sticking the mat to the card using Fast Fuse. Finally, I stamped a sentiment, in this case {friend to friend} from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set and punched it out using the Word Window punch.
