Bloom Where You're Planted

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! I've been out of town for a few days so I'm hoping this posts when it is supposed to :) It's my turn to post on the Craftin Desert Divas blog and I have a card to share with you using the new Blooming For You stamp set.


The papers are from Prima's Natures Garden stack. The edges were distressed with a DIA. The strip of butterflies down the side is Tim Holtz Tissue Tape.


The stamp is a Tim Holtz Spring Sprung. It was stamped with Wendy Vecchi Fern Green Archival Ink and then stamped again without reinking for s ghosting effect. The butterflies are a punch and they were covered with Doodlebug Designs Sugar Coating. The crinkle ribbon is from my sweet friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces. The button is a Die-Versions Wee Petites Button die.


The frame is from The Paper Studio Spare Parts. Bloom Where You're Planted is from the Blooming for You stamp set. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder to match the frame.


You can purchase this stamp set, as well as all of the stamps at the Craftin Desert Divas Shop. And we would love to see your projects using any of the stamp sets in our Craftin Desert Divas Gallery.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
  2. DL.Art - July Linky
  3. Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
 Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

My sweetest friend, this is simply exquisite! What a stunning use of papers... you completely transformed them with the stamping. I LOVE that frame and really need to get some. The added flowers and butterflies add such dimension (and realism) to the beautiful scene. The sentiment is lovely and you know how much I love your floofy bows. :o) Another masterpiece that brings me joy, my dear Lisa! I hope your trip continues to go well! I wish I could have a pile of homemade goodies waiting for your return home. :o) Have a beautifully blessed day!

Yeah, can you believe Aug already! Omg, so much to do yet before fall! This summer has been moving extremely fast. I suppose because we have packed so much in, it feels that way :( Ugh! I just booked our fall trip to Phoenix and then Mexico. Oooh, I can't wait to R&R!
I hope your conference is going well and you get back safely! Take care and hope your having some nice weather! Ours has been a little off but I will take it over the cold any day!
hugs,

Lisa, loving the way you're using the Paper Studio elements. I'm seeing them in H/Lobby, and wondering how they will go through the mail! This is a really dimensional card, with so much beauty to enjoy. The tissue b'flies are a nifty element to draw the eye around the card as are the pretty posies dancing at the lower edge. Love the perky sparkly butterfly and all the distressing that makes this such a beautiful card. TFS & hope you're having fun. Hugs
