This card is just plain fun! These sophisticated flowers from the Secret Garden Stamp and Framelit Die bundle are ready to party in these vibrant colors on black cardstock. Bloomin’ Marvelous is from the Sale-a-bration set by the same name. Doesn’t this card look super involved and time consuming to make? It’s not! With the Versamark ink, color embossing powder and the coordinating stamp set and framelit dies, it’s a snap to make! (Come back tomorrow for the video tutorial or subscribe to the blog updates in RSS/email in the right sidebar under the facebook & youtube buttons.)
The base of the card is Whisper White cardstock with strips of Summer Smooches designer series paper adhered to the front.

You are just 2 minutes away from acrylic-block-stamping mastery! I’ve recorded a quick video to show you how I created this card with my ‘B’ clear block. You’ll learn how to do acyrlic-block and stamping-off or two-tone stamping in the video below.

Here’s a clean and simple one-layer Bloomin’ Marvelous card made with the acrylic block stamping technique. Then I just added a few rhinestones and the matching Tangerine Tango ribbon from the SAB Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack for some extra punch. (You can view the video tutorial here.)
Simply ink your acrylic block directly into your stamp pad, in this case Daffodil Delight, and stamp directly onto your paper. I inked the block each time I stamped for consistent results. Then I stamped the Tangerine Tango and the Island Indigo flowers on top of the block stamping. I stamped the Tangerine Tango flower twice before reinking to get the two-tone effect you see here.
The ribbon from the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack is so bright and cheery looking and so easy to work with. It’s lightweight and ties into a know or bow very nicely. And you’ll get the Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo and Pool Party ribbons in the pack.
This Sentimental Journey Island Indigo phone booth card was one of the first that I made with this set. After stamping the phone booth and tearing the paper I did a little sponging and added some hash marks with the Island Indigo marker to resemble the lines in the stamp. I wasn’t sure if I liked it so I’ve been slow about showing it here. 🙂
The buttons in the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack inspired the colors for this Thank You card. And they are perfect with the Button Buddies Stamp Set that is precisely tailored for buttons. It’s a match made in stamping heaven! 😀 The light-weight and beautiful Tangerine Tango Ribbon comes from the same coordinating SAB ribbon and button pack.
The matching large scallop punch and the Bitty Banners framelit dies make creating this Button Buddies thank you card quick and fun. Embossing the white background keeps it clean and simple while adding a little texture.
