This month’s stamp of the month out of the Bloom Box is proving to be one of my favorites. If you’ve followed my blog lately, you’ll see I was able to use it in my planner and for a Mother’s Day card. Now I’ve created another card featuring our Be Amazing collection colors. I love the bright and fun colors from the Be Amazing collection available in our Inspiration Book & Catalog, please email me to request a copy of visit my online store to purchase one.
Using the re-inkers from the Be Amazing collection, I was able to create this vibrant background for today’s card. I started out by applying a few drops of re-inker and used our fusion blender as well onto a piece of plastic. I then dipped my stamps onto this plastic color palette. I really liked the way the background turned out and hope to use this technique for my upcoming swaps at the Annual Fun Stampers Journey convention in June.
If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll remember that I shared the May 2017 Bloom Box exclusive card kits and stamp set on May 1st here. The Bloom Box is just a fun piece of happy mail to look forward to every month. You can create 4 beautiful cards and learn some techniques and tips that can be used again and again. I love the sentiments and doilies of this gorgeous Decorative Doily stamp set, best of all we were able to order a coordinating die set.
If you want a closer look at the May 2017 Bloom Box, be sure to check out my Crafty Lounge YouTube channel for the YouTube Unboxing video I filmed here. I walk you through the box the Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Box comes in and show you all the contents.
Well, if you follow me over on Instagram at @alex_stamps, you’ll probably notice that I’m a bit of a #PlannerAddict. Yep, I said it. I am Planner Obsessed! I loved the exclusive stamp set in the May kit of the month so much that I had to use it in my latest planner layout. I used my A5 Webster’s Pages exclusive Fun Stampers Journey planner to do a little bit of memory keeping here.
The third way I’ve already used this awesome stamp set is by making quick Mother’s Day note cards for my co-workers and family. If you were here on the blog yesterday, you saw my quick project share featuring the Annual Celebration stamp set paired with this gorgeous Decorative Doily stamp set. I hope you enjoyed some of the ideas I shared today and you’re inspired to create.
Today I wanted to share a quick and easy card I made using a few of my favorite Fun Stampers Journey’s stamps and dies. The May 2017 Bloom Box has quickly become one of my favorites. As you can see on my latest YouTube video, I have used the stamp set in my planner layouts and also in my latest project for friends and family.
In today’s project share, I made a quick treat holder and card for my sister and my co-workers.
I cut a 3 by 3 square out of whip cream cardstock and used the new Decorative Doily stamp set to decorate the quick and easy Mother’s Day card. I love the Annual Celebration Stamp set. It is definitely one of my favorite stamp sets. I can use it all year long and it is a must have for your collection.
I added a bit of the new Sparkle Silk, I absolutely LOVE IT! My photograph really doesn’t do this silk any justice. It is an amazing product to add to your crafty closet. I mounted the card onto my petal note envelope using white liner tape and voila! A quick and easy card to hand out to family and co-workers. I even included a little ghirardehli treat and picture in each note I gave out. I hope you’ll try this out as well, let me know if you do. Share a project link below.
