Hello Kre8tors! If you’re new here, welcome! If you’re a returning reader, thanks for coming back! Can we just talk about the Bloom & Grow stamp set for just a sec…. It’s AMAZING! This is the first project I’ve made with it, but I am absolutely in LOVe and have big plans now!
I needed some quick and beautiful thank you cards, and this set made the PERFECT cards! Add a couple simple embellishments, and BOOM, beautiful cards in minutes!
I started with a basic Whisper White card base, and layered a 2-1/2″ square on top. I used the thank you sentiment from the Bloom and Grow stamp set, and added a few of the smaller leaves and twig stamps.
I colored those in with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Duo (light and dark) and then added some Poppy Parade to the little berries. I also used the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend in Dark to color in the Epoxy Hearts. It works BEAUTIFULLY! If you haven’t tried it yet, I suggest you do!
I also added some of our Burlap Ribbon behind the layered square for a little extra OOMPH. I have a little trick for getting the MOST MILEAGE out of your ribbon. Check it out in my video below!

I love the Background Bits stamp set with this beautiful little flower. Coloring rubber stamps with our Stampin’ Write Markers gives a very beautiful effect to stamping. I’ve also used our Whisper White Craft ink paired with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to create a statement that really POPS against the Basic Black cardstock. The pearls are a nice touch that really turns this card into an elegant creation.

Red, Black, and White are perhaps one of my most favorite color combinations. There’s something about the crispness of the way it looks. I decided to pair this color combination with the Climbing Orchid stamp set, and I think it turned out rather well.
I absolutely ADORE this sentiment! Enjoy Today… two simple words that mean so very much. The simplicity of this card is what makes it stand out in a sea of cards. There is something to be said for a beautiful card with no raised pieces.
Another great feature of the Clean & Quick cards in my series is that nearly all of them don’t require any adhesive! That’s the beauty of the flat card, nothing to glue down. 🙂 The feature turns back to the stamps themselves. No fancy cutting, folding, or footwork. Just paper and ink.
