Fussy Cutting Blooms - Stampin' UP Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome back to the 2015-2016 Stampin' UP Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! 
I am so blessed that I get to create and inspire with these amazing Stampin' UP products and share with you all here for another wonderful year! Remember that every other Thursday, all 20 of us from all over the world will post on our blogs an inspiring project for you! Be sure to get Google Translate so that you can read in your language all about how they created their projects too. Please keep hoppin' thru them all....you do not want to miss anyone of these amazing ladies!

This week we are showcasing our Artisan projects for the Stampin' UP Facebook Page this month. For this project, the team was to focus on the Easter Lamb Stamp or the Birthday Blooms Stamp set with the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper. Plan to see a lot of different design styles with these selective products as you move thru the blog hop! 

All of these are such great Spring products that I decided to showcase ALL of them and create a group of projects with the same color combo. I also focused on the technique that many stampers really dislike or love....fussy cutting!
For this card, I cut these beautiful flower blooms directly from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper, used the Birthday Blooms stamp for around the blooms and the greeting. One of the blooms is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals. I also added mini hearts in Gold Glimmer Paper with the Confetti Heart Border Punch. 
For the gift box, I used the Takeout Boxes with a strip of the Birthday Blooms Designer Series Paper. Don't you love the yummy Watermelon Wonder 1" Stitched Satin Ribbon?Then I cut just a part of a bloom off the same Designer Series Paper and added it to the Note Tag Punch with a Clothespin. Now I have the perfect package and card set for someone's Spring birthday! But wait, there is MORE....
For this card, I fussy cut that adorable image of the Easter Lamb out. I stamped him first in Basic Gray Archival Classic Ink and added Blushing Bride color with a Blender Pen. Some more fussy cutting happened with the Fringe Scissors to make cut grass of Mossy Meadow and Old Olive. The 2015-2017 In Color Blossom Accents in Watermelon Wonder make the flowers. Perfect to send next month!

Thanks for stopping by here and if you leave a comment then thanks for truly making my day!
Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.
