Greetings my stamping friends. Continuing our tour of stamp sets that are retiring from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, Project No. 2 uses the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and coordinating Many Layered Blooms Dies. (NOTE: The cardstock base in Crumb Cake, Basic White cardstock, Poppy Parade Ink and adhesives are not among the items retiring on May 2, 2022.)
I have to admit this is the first time I have used this product bundle, which sadly is not uncommon for me. How about you?
I stamped the largest flower stamp from the set on a piece of 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Basic White cardstock in Bumblebee using my Stamparatus just in case I wanted to restamp some areas and to make sure I had even transfer of the ink from the stamp. Perfect stamp impression on the first attempt. I love my Stamparatus and highly recommend this tool if you struggle getting a perfect stamp image on your first attempt with larger stamps.
Next I used the two-step dies with the ombre (glimmer) specialty paper and cut the bottom layer with the darker ombre portion and the top layer with the lighter portion. I hope the glimmer shows in the photo. It is really beautiful IRL.
The Basic White stamped piece is attached to the Crumb Cake card base using dimensionals. I cut the banner flag end using the Banners Pick a Punch and attached that using dimensionals as well. The final touch are the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essential embellishments.
While this card may look difficult, it was actually quick and easy. With the right tools, everything is possible and here Stampin’ Up! has provided you with the perfect tools to make beautiful cards just like this one in almost any color of the rainbow!
