Bloom With Hope Birthday

Before I show you today's project I have some important news to share!  Stampin' Up! has just updated the online Clearance Rack with tons of fabulous items at ridiculously low prices.  All items listed are availble only while supplies last, so if you see something you need to have order it today, as it may well be gone tomorrow!

Also, I neglected to mention in my previous post about new products that there is a brand new GORGEOUS Christmas stamp set, a sneak peek from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue, that is now availble for all of you who (like me!) like to do Christmas in July.  Check it out:

Beauty of the Season (135779) $20.95

Isn't that just begging to be coloured??  I can't wait to get at it with my Blendabilities!

Now for today's project.  I finally had a chance over the weekend to ink up my Bloom With Hope hostess set.  I LOVE this set!  So many beautiful floral images to colour, but first I wanted to see what I could come up with that didn't require colouring, for those who don't (gasp) enjoy it.  Here is the result:

Birthday card featuring the Bloom With Hope stamp set
Can't get much simpler than this one!  I masked off part of the card front with sticky-notes and sponged with Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss.  Then I heat embossed the flower image in white...I love the way it pops against the darker background.

 I added a bit of stitched satin ribbon in Hello Honey and layered it on a Blackberry Bliss card base.  The sentiment, which is also from the Bloom With Hope set, is stamped in black, punched with the Modern Label punch and then layered on a Large Oval punched from Blackberry Bliss card stock.

On the inside I simply stamped the same image from the front in Blackberry Bliss, leaving plenty of space for a personal message for the birthday girl!

Now...go check out the Clearance many great deals!
