In Bloom Guest Artist Cards and more!

by Julie Heyer

I was so excited when Karen asked me to be the In Bloom guest artist. I adore springtime flowers! Each month we invite a guest artist to take the monthly card kit and create cards that are a little more “involved” than those made using Tricia’s instructions.

I was able to make twelve cards and a lovely stitched album with the Card kit, Stamps, and a few items from my stash.

Set B: Green Concertina Cards

Emboss the intersecting Purple panels with a floral folder.

Distress the edges with Amethyst Ink.

Trim two leaves from the Leaf ribbon with scissors.

Adhere the leaves to the back of the cutaparts and then layer onto the embossed Purple panels. Note: Substitute the longer length of Leaf ribbon with the Purple Checked ribbon on all four cards.

Stamp four Hyacinth images onto a white scrap paper panel with Ash Ink.

Add color with purple and green pencils.

Fussy cut the flowers and adhere to the Green card bases with Bookbinding Glue dispensed from a Needle-tipped Applicator.

Create coordinating envelopes with the Hyacinth stamp. Ink the stem with Peridot and the blooms with Amethyst ink. Add to the corner of each envelope.

Set C: White Gate Fold Cards
