A blog for sharing rubber stamps and stamping ideas and inspiration! I love stamping and scrapbooking. I love The Angel Company's stamps, papers, and embellishments! So, this is my little space to post my creations in a gallery. They are listed by set. Hopefully you'll enjoy your time here and come back often!


Bloom Card Instructions

This is a past project from my TAC™ website.

Designed by April Staker

Supplies (All from The Angel Company™):
Fanciful Flowers Stamp Set
Live Inspired Stamp Set
White Cardstock
Med/light Pink Bazzill Cardstock
Catelynn Cardstocks
Cream Cardstock
Jumbo Java Versamagic Ink Pad
Pinks- Bazzill Monochromatic Trios Ink (lightest pink)
Watercolor Crayons: dark green (13074), light green (13067), light pink (13032), medium pink (13030), dark pink (13028)
Ribbon, Flower- Naked Line Sampler
In Bloom Brads
Squirt Bottle filled with water

1.Cut White Cardstock to 8½” x 5½”, score at 4¼” for the card.
2.Cut Med/light Pink Bazzill Cardstock to 4¼” x 5½”. Run the edges across your Jumbo Java ink pad.
3.Cut Pink Dot Cardstock to 4” x 4½”. Tear across the bottom. Run the un-torn edges across your Jumbo Java ink pad.
4.Cut Brown Pattern Cardstock to 1¾” x 3¾”. Run the edges across your Jumbo Java ink pad.
5.Cut Cream Cardstock to 1½” x 3½”.
6.To color your flower: lightly spray your mounted flower and wipe most of the water off. You want it to be slightly damp. Apply the pink colors listed starting with the lightest color. Begin on the outer edges with the light pink. Bring the color about half way to the center. Using your medium pink apply color slightly overlapping the light pink and bring it almost all the way to the center of the flower. Use your dark pink to fill in the remaining area of the center. Hold the squirt bottle about 12” away from your stamp and lightly spray. It should be a fine mist. Stamp onto the cardstock. You may be able to get a second image if you lightly mist again. (Make another card or a tag with it!)
7.Repeat step 6 for the stem- using the green crayons.
8.Punch out a file tab from the Catelynn set. Stamp the sentiment in Jumbo Java ink as shown.
9.Apply Light Pink ink to the flower edges and raised parts. Put a brad through the center of the flower.
10. Assemble card as shown. I assemble the card front completely before attaching it to the card. This hides brads and saves ribbon as I can wrap it just around the edge of the card to secure it instead of tying it all the way around.
