You Are Simply Wonderful with Bloom & Grow

There are so many great products in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog that don’t showcase magnolias or maritime images. Because Good Morning Magnolia and Come Sail Away Suites are showcased on the front of the new catalog (and because both were part of demonstrator pre-orders), we are flooded with amazing projects from these suites. You need both, but there are so many other products you need! Today’s project is a bright-and-cheery card I made with the Bloom & Grow Bundle. Here’s my card:

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Floral Fun. The Bloom & Grow Bundle offers some gorgeous floral arrangements and some pretty wonderful sentiments. I doubled this collection of flowers (stamped with the Bloom & Grow stamp and cropped with the coordinating Budding Blooms Dies) to perfectly accent this over-the-top “You are simply wonderful” sentiment. I love it! Here’s a closer look at the Bloom & Grow Bundle:Bloom & Grow Bundle, Stampin' Up! 151069I stamped the flowers with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored them with my Stampin’ Blends. Here’s a closer look:Bloom & Grow Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingI used the following colors on this project:
    • Daffodil Delight
    • Flirty Flamingo
    • Pumpkin Pie
    • Pool Party
    • Call Me Clover
    • Highland Heather
  • Measurements. The layers on this card are quite simple, but they gave me a perfect foundation for this stamp set and dies. When you get this bundle (and you should), you’ll find these measurements helpful, too. Here are the measurements of these layers, starting with the card base and working my way up:
    • Call Me Clover – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (scored at 4-1/4″
    • Thick Whisper White – 5-1/4″ x 4″
    • Pool Party – 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
    • Thick Whisper White – 4-1/8″ x 1-1/8″
    • Daffodil Delight – 4″ x 1″
  • Spring Colors. The flowers on this card are colored with a beautiful mix of bright and soft Stampin’ Blends. The colors for the card panels were pulled from the flowers and leaves in these colorful arrangements. I love this combination of bright yellow, soft blue and bright green. If you like this color combination, too, please save this: Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Call Me Clover

    Brian, I always love your designs, but you have outdone yourself with this one! Beautiful! I have this bundle (I’m a demonstrator and got it on preorder) but have been so enthralled with Magnolia Lane, I haven’t had time to play. Now I’m excited to give it a go! Thank you!

    • I understand how easy it is to get stuck on an amazing suite (like Magnolia Lane) – it’s amazing! I have a feeling I’ll be pulling this set out a lot, too. 🙂 Thanks, Marcea!

  7. SU amazes me with the intricate dies they have to go with their stamps. You amaze me with the creations you are able to put together with them. Just beautiful!

  8. I never think to mix and match the cardstock colors like you do, so every day I enjoy seeing what you put forth in the way of your cardstock. I have really begun to open up to mixing and matching cardstock after seeing what you’ve done. A ton of thanks to you.

    • That makes me so happy to hear, San! Thanks so much for your comments. I’m happy to inspire and love that you are on a journey to mix cardstocks.
