Floral Bouquet using ‘In Blooms’ Dies

Pair of Handmade cards using Pierced Blooms Dies from Stampin' Up!

No stamping today, just my cardstock in the three challenge colours Terracotta Tile #150890, Mango Melody #147013 and Petal Pink #147009. Adding some, neutrals of Basic Black #121688 and Very Vanilla #106550, my Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine #150673 got to work.

With a small tray of beautifully stitched Die-cut pieces from the Pierced Blooms Dies #154312, I began layering various combinations of flower heads and foliage.

With a Terracotta Tile card base #150890, plus a middle layer of Basic Black card #121688, I used the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder #154317 to add texture to my Very Vanilla card #106550 top layer.

Adapting Dies to Create a floral garden tub

For my 2nd card, I wanted to create a garden tub for my blooms to be growing from. I Die-cut the label die in Basic Black card, cut in half top to bottom and turned on it’s side to create a garden tub!

Perfect double bows

The In Blooms bundle #156208 was perfect for creating this beautiful floral bouquet. This double bow die created a perfect finish and all of the dies.

To finish, I added Champagne Rhinestones #151193 to the centres of each bow, plus on some of the floral centres, for the perfect ‘bling’ finish.
