Pick a Blossom Any Blossom

Hi! Thanks for stopping by!

I thought I would take a bit of time to make a few cards using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch. I absolutely adore this punch. Check out the different designs!

But first, here's the sketch I worked off for the first card. I found it on

Card Stock: Whisper White (100730), Old Olive (100702), Pacific Point (111350), Melon Mambo (115320), Brights Patterns DSP(117155), Ice Cream Parlour DSP (retired, from Sale-a-bration mini)
Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370)
Ink: Pacific Point (111837)
Accessories: Brights Glimmer Brads (1210006), Word Window Punch (119857), Dimensionals (104430), Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (122464), 2-way Glue Pen (100425)

Here's some more angles of the card:

Love the bright colours of this card. Have you ever wondered how to use the "seeds" that are punched out using the  Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch? I figured I would use them as accents on the sentiment of this card. Can you see them? A subtle addition. I didn't use a sketch but was inspired by this card found on
Card Stock: Pacific Point (111350), Whisper White (100730), Bashful Blue (105120), Real Red (102482), Old Olive (100702), Celebrations DSP (117164)
Ink: Real Red marker (100052), Pacific Point Marker (120698)
Stamp Set: Party Hearty (111722)
Accessories: Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (122464), Brights Glimmer Brads (121006), 2 x 1 3/8" Oval Punch (119859), 1 3/4" x 7/8" Oval Punch (119855), 2-Way Glue Pen (100425), Dimensionals (104430), Sponge (101610), Glue Dots (103683)
Stamping with Rachel Tips & Tricks:
1. Sponge the outer edge of the sentiment so it blends well with the card base
2. Use glue dots to adhere the glimmer brads found in the middle of the flower. The brad prongs lift the piece off the card base anyway so no need to use an dimensional.
3. I thought it was striking to have an elongated card. Final dimension is 7" x 4".

Simply Just For You
I absolutely love the simplicity and clean look of this card. And it take just a couple of minutes to create!

Stamping with Rachel Tips & Tricks:
1. With thin pieces, like the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch pieces, use a 2-Way Glue Pen. It's a really efficient way to adhere these thin pieces.
