Bloom With Grace:

My card today features the In Full Bloom Bundle which contains the In Full Bloom Stamp Set and the In Full Bloom Die Set. When you purchase the bundle from Pajama Crafter Stamps you save 15%. And you know me I am all about saving a few pennies when I can. To create the my card I also used the Rotating Stamp Platform (from Craft Stash) and the Checkered Scallops Embossing Folder (from Spellbinders). I colored my floral filled wheelbarrow with my Ohuhu Brush Markers.

Creating the Circle:

To start my card I used the small floral image from the In Bloom Stamp Set and placed it in the rotating stamp platform and stamped it using Peach Bellini Ink (from Gina K Designs). I then did the same thing with the butterfly and the sentiment. I stamped the butterfly with Lovely Lavender Ink (from Gina K Designs) and the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink. With the rotating stamp platform all you have to do is place the image in the correct size circle and stamp and turn the cardstock. You keep turning until you fill up your panel.

All I had to do at this point was take a large circle die, or a small plate and place over my stamped panel and trace around it. I then took my paper snips and cut inside the traced line to get the circle shape on the front of my card. I attached a piece of Peach Sorbet Cardstock that I had embossed with the Checkered Scallops Embossing Folder (both from Spellbinders). I attached the card front to my A2 size card base made from Neenah Desert Storm 100 lbs Cardstock.

Next I stamped out the wheelbarrow, watering can, and the butterfly from the In Bloom Stamp Set. I also stamped the butterfly three times because I knew I wanted to use them around the card as a simple embellishment. I stamped everything on the same 4.25" x 5.5" piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80 lbs Cardstock. I stamped everything in alcohol marker friendly ink. My normal go to alcohol marker friendly ink is Memento Tuxedo Black, it has never failed me when wanting to color with my alcohol markers.

Finding Inspiration & Color Palettes:

For my color palette I picked a pale peach, light coral, a slightly darker peach, a yellow, and a green. I wanted it to feel very spring. I actually found the color palette on Pinterest. I have a whole board that I save anything I find inspirational to. I save all kinds of things to this board it could be card designs, different color palettes, hair color, art work, or something in fashion that I found that I liked. my rule is if I like it and feel inspired by it in some way I save it to that board. I have also saved lots of inspiration from the Pajama Crafter Stamps blog from fellow design team members. You can find inspiration for a card design anywhere and I highly recommend creating a Pinterest board just for this inspiration. You can do like I have and set it to private (or I think they call it secret) that way you can go to it when you're not feeling creative and thumb through your pins and get inspired.
