WOW Wednesday! Build-A-Blossom

Good Morning.  I don't know if this constitutes as a WOW, but I sure love it!  This is almost a direct case from the Occasions Mini Catalog page 12.  I've just added a sentiment at the bottom.

Stamp Set: Build A Blossom, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Whisper White, Blushing Bride
Ink: Old Olive, Blushing Bride, Pirouette Pink, Early Espresso
Tools: Blossom petals punch, 1/2" circle punch, modern label punch, word window punch, bone folder
Accessories: glue dots, dimensionals, crystal effects, pearls

Card Tips:
  • Main Card measures 4-7/8" square b/c my envelope was 5" Square
  • Find the center of the card and organize your petals around it.  I didn't do that and had extra space at the bottom and I had to add a little something.  (There are no mistakes in card making, just opportunities for layering and embellishing)
  • If I had thought of it before I would have run the espresso square through the Big Shot with one of the embossing folders...forgot and then I had already glued :(
  • This is a 2-step Stamp Set so you'll need to stamp Pirouette Pink first and then Blushing Bride on top.
  • Take your top 5 petals and your bone folder and curl the edges to give dimension.  You can do it to both layers if you'd like.  You could also use a pen to wrap your petals around if you don't have a bone folder.  
Here's a quick video on 2-step stampin' and the stamp-a-majig!

    I just watched the video...and have a question. How did you clean the brown ink off your stamp without it moving on the acrylic.

    Did washing the block help, Cindy?
