Hi Stampers. Summer is officially here! That means wedding season is in full bloom and what better way to celebrate love than with Stampin’ Up!s beautiful Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit Die over Blushing Bride glimmer paper.
This beautiful card starts out with a Whisper White card base 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. Next up is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Blushing Bride glimmer paper. The top layer is a 5″ x 3.75″ piece of Whisper White card stock that I used to cut out the Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit Die. I cut the die in the center of this layer on my Big Shot using the precision base plate (which is awesome for the more detailed dies and gets a cleaner cut). I used my Big Shot die brush to clean out all the little pieces by leaving the card stock in the die and placing it on the foam mat and rubbing it with the die brush until all the little pieces fell out.
I then adhered that layer with the heart missing from it onto the glimmer paper with stampin’ dimensionals and then insert the heart into the center where it was cut out using stampin’ dimensionals under each of the larger flowers.
Note: Did you happen to notice that we now sell MINI stampin’ dimensionals?!?! How cool is that! Perfect for projects just like this! I’ve included the link to buy them from my store below in the supply list.
I used the coordinating Bloomin’ Love stamp set to stamp the small flowers with Blushing Bride ink in the upper left and lower right corner. This left plenty of room for the sender to write a personal note, but made it match the front of the card. I then lined the inside of a medium Whisper White envelope with some retired Designer Series Paper and added a few rhinestone jewels in the center of the larger flowers. It’s now ready to give a smile to someones face.
Hi Stampers. If you were on my blog a few days ago you saw the wedding card that I made with the Bloomin’ Heart thinlit die. I chose to make a 5oth wedding anniversary with some of the same supplies. For this card I added the Number of Years stamps set and the Large Numbers Framelit dies.
This card starts with a Very Vanilla card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″). Next up is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of gold glimmer paper – followed by the 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock that has been run through the Big Shot with the Bloomin’ Heart thinlit die.
For the focal point, I cut the 50 out of gold foil paper and attached the numbers with mini glue dots. I then stamped the “anniversary” with frame and the “th” with frame onto scraps of Very Vanilla card stock with Versamark ink and used Gold stampin’ emboss powder and the heat tool to heat emboss these and then cut them out with the co-0rdinating framelits. These, too, were attached to the card front with mini glue dots.
On the interior of the card I heat embossed the phrase “congratulations” (from the retired stamp set, Bravo) in gold. Anyone who has made it 50 years in a marriage deserves a great deal of congratulations! My grandparents made it to their 5oth and beyond, while my parents enjoyed 40 years of marriage before my dad passed. I’m very proud to say that my husband and I are on year 27 and going strong.
I hope that you are surrounded by happily married couples and can put my idea to use. I’ve included my list of supplies with links to my store below. Remember to use this months hostess code (AFX66EX6) for your chance to win the hostess credit for May.
Hi Stampers. Today I am using up some retired card stock and proving that the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits are not just for Valentines Day. I combined it with the Large Numbers Dies and the Number of Years stamp set to create this beautiful Anniversary card.
The card base is made from the retired Lost Lagoon card stock and paired with Very Vanilla card stock. I punched a 1/4″ hole about .75 of an inch in from each side in the middle and ran Lost Lagoon ribbon up through each hole from the back and then wrapping it around the side and gluing to the back with glue dot’s. I then adhered that layer to the card with stampin’ dimensionals. I used the Bloomin’ Heart thinlit and Lost Lagoon card stock to cut out the beautiful heart that I adhered with a few drops of monoadhesive glue behind the flowers of the heart and a few larger leaves. The “25” was cut from silver glimmer paper using the Large Numbers framelit dies and the “th” and “anniversary” were stamped onto Very Vanilla with Lost Lagoon ink and then cut out with the framelits. All these are adhered to heart with stampin’ dimensionals (I used the edges, since they can be cut smaller).
The interior of the card is lined with a 4″ x 5.25″ layer of Very Vanilla. I stamped the sentiments from the B.Y.O.P stamp set in Lost Lagoon ink. I LOVE how it came out. I hope you do too!
