Bloom & Grow: Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps February Feature Day 1


Good morning!

Welcome to the first day of the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps February release blog hops!  Today, we are showcasing a lovely new stamp set called Bloom & Grow.


These flowers are so soft and pretty stamped in colored inks - all giving a taste of spring!  I stamped my stem directly on my banner die cut, cut from one of the bookmark dies in the Bookmarks & More die set - LOVE this particular die and use it often just like this.  Then, I stamped the flower on white card stock and used a waterbrush to add a very light touch of yellow to the middle of each petal.


The background is another new stamp set this month that you'll be seeing a lot of from me over the next few days because I LOVE it!  It's called Delightfully Delicate Background and even though it's a 4" square stamp, Korin has made this image SO easy to line up to easily cover an entire card front.  
I snuck one more new product on this card - can you see it?  I used one of the Shape Up dies for the flower pot!  It worked perfectly as a pot cut from cork paper, don't you think? 
Super fun!

Here's all the details of today's stamp set for your information:

  • Large Flower Petal image measures approximately 1.5" x 1.5"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland

Oh you clever gal, you! The first thing I noticed was the use of the cork, but until I read your comment about using the Shape Up die it didn't dawn on me. What a great idea!! Great card, Jessica!
