Today, we are featuring the first stamp set from the kit called Bold and Blooming. These stamps are so much fun and versatile! These are perfect for spring! You will be able to create amazing card projects using this beautiful stamp set! Have fun and be creative! ALL cardstock, patterned papers, dies and stamps that I used below are in the kit!
These dies and images are so cool! i'm pretty sure they are supposed to be leaves, but all I see is butterfly wings! The Red Hot butterfly is created by stamping and stamping off the large and small leaf, and the Ocean Mist one by stamping and stamping off the smaller leaf and then flipping and repeating. At first this was a flat card, but when you have dies, you really ought to use 'em! It adds so much dimension to the wings, cutting these two pieces. Then those little bold curved pieces make the bodies and antennae, fun!! I added just a portion of the large floral piece to the corner and inside and added just a touch of color. I love it!
Next, I had to use some of the awesome flower dies! I love the different possibilities for the this detailed image with the line, so here I am turning it to use as a stem. I love when greetings are placed on the vertical, just to change things up! I added a die cut leaf (yep, it's a leaf this time) in case it wasn't obvious I was going for a stem!
Flowers are stamped in Ocean Mist and base is Turquoise Sea from the kit, these colors blend so beautifully. Flowers, leaves and fiddle heads are colored with Spectrum Noir.
Last, I guess I also see PETALS, surprise!! Make your own flowers, it's super fun to do. The dies and round flower stamps now work double duty as flower centers, and then just stamp stamp stamp the leaves for some ginormous blooms! Bold, indeed! Base is Fresh Asparagus.
