Bloom and Grow Simple Thank You Cards

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!

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Scored @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Layering Square: 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″

Materials:

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 6

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.

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
