Share it on a Sunday - Bloom and Grow

Hi Everyone,

It was Donna's turn this week to choose a theme and she chose 'one stamp set 3 ways' and I have chosen to use the lovely Bloom and Grow stamp set and I've made three different cards, let me show you how:


1/2 a sheet of A4 card stock in Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight
3 pieces of whisper white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" for the inside layers
1 piece of whisper white 3 5/8" x 5 3/8", 1 piece 3 5/8" x 2 7/8", 1 piece 5 3/8" x 2"
1 piece of Magenta Madness card stock  3" x 1 7/8"
1 piece of Bumble Bee card stock 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"
1 piece of silver foil 5 5/8" x 3 7/8", 1 piece 3 3/8" x 2 1/8"
1 piece of gold foil 5 1/2" x 2 1/4" 
1 piece of Just Jade In Colour dsp 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"
Bloom and Grow stamp set
Melon Mambo ink
Call me clover ink
Memento Black ink
Selection of Stampin Blends to colour in the image
Clear embossing powder
Embossing buddy
Versamark ink
Heat Tool
In colour ribbon in Misty Moonlight and Just Jade
In colour enamel dots
Multipurpose adhesive
Mini Glue Dots
Tear and Tape


Fold the three card bases in half and burnish well.  Add a whisper white layer to the inside of all three.

Card 1 - Just Jade

Adhere the dsp to the centre of the card front leaving a small border all the way around.  

Add a piece of ribbon around the centre of the card front with the cut ends at the front, stick it down with tear and tape. I've added it just to the ends of the ribbon that are visible on the front with a little overlap on to the back to keep it secure.

Stamp an image and a sentiment on the small piece of whisper white, I have used Call Me Clover ink as I don't have the new Just Jade yet.

Adhere to the centre front of the card using dimensionals and add an enamel dot in the bottom right corner.

Card 2 - Magenta Madness

Stamp some of the images on the larger piece of whisper white.  I have stamped four times across the corners using Melon Mambo ink as I don't have the Magenta Madness yet.  Add this layer to the silver foil layer and adhere to the front of the card.

Stamp a sentiment on the small piece of magenta card stock with Versamark, sprinkle with clear embossing powder and heat set.  Add this layer to the smaller silver foil layer and add to the card front using dimensionals.  Add a couple of enamel dots in opposite corners.

Card 3 - Misty Moonlight

Stamp an image on the thin piece of whisper white using Memento Black ink and colour using a selection of Stampin' Blends (I have used daffodil delight, bermuda bay, granny apple green, lovely lipstick, poppy parade and flirty flamingo).

Stamp a sentiment to the bottom right hand corner of the Bumble Bee mat using Versamark ink and clear embossing powder and heat set.

Add the coloured layer to the gold foil and then adhere to the top of the Bumble Bee card layer. 

Add a piece of misty moonlight ribbon underneath this and wrap around the back and secure.  Then adhere this layer to the card base.  Add a small bow to the left hand side of the ribbon on the front and secure using mini glue dots.  Add two enamel dots to the right hand corner of the coloured in layer.

There you are, 3 completely different cards using the same stamp set.  I hope that you like them.

Now hop over to see what Donna and Victoria have made this week:
