Blessings of Home
Today I am sharing a project using the Blessings of Home Bundle. Once I completed my project (which I am sending out today), I stamped the envelope to ensure complete coordination.
I started with a piece of 4-1/4″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Basic White Cardstock, I stamped the floral image using some Black Memento Ink on my Stamparatus. I ensured I had nice smooth and even coverage by running my “Homemade Stamp Press” over the top of the clear acrylic pad.

On a side note, I have seen these Stamp Presses, also known as a Chuckie online and felt I could make my own. So with hubbies help, I did! Let me know what you think by leaving me a comment. If y’all like them I will give one away.
After I stamped my floral image, I used the following Stamping Blends Light and Dark to color it in, So Saffron, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, and the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.
I stamped a second image of only the larger flower, colored it in with my blends, then used my Paper Snips Scissors to cut out the single flower. I added the single flower over top of the full floral image with Stampin’ Dimensionals. See photo above.
I cut a piece of Thick Basic White Cardstock at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ , then scored it at 4-1/4″. Using my Blending Brush and Pool Party Classic Ink, I blended the front of the card base, then stamped the front around the edges the smaller floral image from the stamp set with some Memento Black Ink.
I cut another piece of Basic White Cardstock at 3-1/4″ x 5″ and added the Paper Lattice over top using my Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. Then I added the piece on top of the card front with the Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.
I added the floral image onto the front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the centers of my flowers. I sprinkled some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the front as well for a bit more sparkle.
I stamped the sentiment from the On The Horizon Stamp Set on a 3/8″ x 3″ piece of Basic White Cardstock, and added it to the front of my project. Lastly, I stamped the smaller floral image onto a scrap piece of Basic White Cardstock and colored it in with the same Blends. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the image and added it to the inside of my project. As I mentioned before I stamped the large floral image on my envelope too.
