Bloomin' With Beauty

I love this new stamp set from Stampin' Up! - it's called Bloomin' With Beauty and has a lovely bee image. My name, Deborah, actually means bee in Hebrew, so this is why I love the little creatures! You can see the whole set on page 40 of the current Idea Book And Catalogue.

The paper is from the Hostess Patterns Pack DSP and I chalked around the edges to soften them a bit. These papers are only available as a Free Hostess Product for the duration of the current Idea Book And Catalogue and I love the colours that have been used for them. Check them out on page 11.
I used my new Scallop Square Punch to make the mats for the bee images.
Watercolour Wonder Crayons were used to paint the images. Being a watercolourist I found the Crayons and Aqua Painters a bit alien to use at first, but now I'm a convert! They take up little space, are clean and are available in all the Stampin' Up! range of colours.

I designed a sketch to make the card and if you'd like a copy then please e-mail me at
Check back to see the scrapbook layout I did using the same sketch.

Anyway, here's the recipe for the card.
Stamps: Bloomin' With Beauty
Paper: Always Artichoke, More Mustard & Hostess Patterns Pack DSP
Ink: Black StazOn & Always Artichoke
Accessories: Crafter's Tool Kit, White Gel Pen, Stampin' Pastels, Sponge Daubers, More Mustard 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Moss Gingham Ribbon, Scallop Square Punch, Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Aqua Painters & Watercolour Wonder Crayons
Thanks for looking!

Hi Debbie :)

This is a beautiful card! I've just bought this stamp set ... and it's now my favourite! Don't know how I missed it in the catty before, it's just gorgeous!
