Bloomin’ Love

_SAM4441Bloomin Love is a beautiful set.  The Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit dies are absolutely awesome (P 17, Handmade from the Heart catalog).  I did use the Precision Base Plate as this is an intricate die.  I also purchased the Big Shot Die Brush (P 10, Handmade from the Heart catalog) and it did a magnificent job of removing those teeny tiny pieces from the intricate heart die – well worth the $11 investment.  The color scheme used is Blushing Bride and Rose Red.  The new Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper provides lots of interest.  The Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder was used on the Blushing Bride background cs and 1/8” ribbon highlights every other stripe.  The banner die does not come with this set, but I had purchased the Number of Years set which includes this easy to use die.  Pearls are perfect embellishments for the die cut flowers.  1/8” punched circles embellish the centers of the small embossed flowers.

_SAM4439The alternate sample is done in Real Red and Blushing Bride.  The only difference other than the color is the ribbon which is just a tinge wider than that used in the sample above.  A single loop bow was attached and an alternate sentiment was used.  For February Stamp Camp, you can choose either the Rose Red or the Real Red.  This is a great opportunity to use the Precision Base Plate and the Big Shot Die Brush.  If you choose, you can add additional glimmer to these cards by carefully adding Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  Once you use this awesome brush, you will agree it is the best thing since sliced cheese!  See it on page 24 in the Handmade from the Heart catalog.  If you did not receive your catalog, you can pick one up at the February Stamp Camp.  And don’t forget about Sale-A-Brations!  I will have samples of these freebies out for you to see.  Incidentally, rumor has it that Paperrose01 will be offering a discount for all February orders of at least $50 – PLUS you can choose your free Sale-A-Brations item!!!!  Yahoo!!!!!

Come to February Stamp Camp and play with some fun new products!  Wait until you see the next card – a bear in the forest!  Don’t forget – February 4th from 2 – 9 PM, February 5th from 2 – 9 PM, and February 6th from 9 AM to 4 PM!

On a personal note, I only wear my arm brace at night now!  I can pick my arm up and cut paper with no problem!  Yahoo – you have to love the little things in life!  Blessings, Rosemary – home 630/759-3089, cell 630/965-1965, paperrose01@aol.com
