What is in a Bloom Box Kit?

An exclusive red rubber stamp set, pre-cut elements, coordinating embellishments and step-by-step instructions. Create 4 eye-catching, unique greeting cards using the supplies we've provided. Just add your inks and a few tools, and you're ready to go.

For my first card I decided to focus on Halloween and this Fabulously Fun Color Palette

Black Licorice Cardstock Trimmed to 4.25 x 5.5
Color Splash Sheet
Using the Large Dauber I created the background of the card using the above colors
Grape Fusion, Citrus Cooler and Black Licorice

I then added Gold Silk and Sparkle Silk to the Background and heat set it.

I then stamped these fun guys on Whip Cream Cardstock in Black Licorice
and die cut them out, I popped them up with foam adhesive squares.
 with the Trick or Treat Sentiment I used the word box from the Die Set Basic Box Window Plates Die, I thought it made it a little quirky and if you watch the video I had a hard time deciding where to put it on the card.

To Finish the card I added the Fashion Silver Buttons

As you can see the sentiment went inside the card.

This was a really fun card to create using a technique I haven't done since being a Girl Scout Leader.

The Card Base is Oatmeal Cookie 4.25 x 5.5
The Whip Cream Card Front was created using
Journey Color Splash, Lavender and Citrus Cooler

I took a Splash Sheet and sprayed the splash to puddle onto the sheet
I then used a straw and blew the puddle across the card for both colors one at a time
creating the marbling effect.

I then stamped the sentiment in Clear Pigment Ink
and sprinkled generously the Journey Gold Embossing Powder onto
the sentiment then heat set it

To finish the card I took a piece of Dark Roast and used the Notebook Page Die
as well as on the whip cream card front. I adhered the Dark Roast page directly to the Oatmeal Cookie Base and popped the Whip Cream Front up with Foam Adhesive Squares.
I tied a bow around the card with Journey Twine Natural and Journey Thread in Whip Cream.
