The big bold flowers in the Bloom By Bloom stamp set are perfect for quick & easy focal points!  You don't need a lot of layers…just build the flowers with stamps & ink for a cheerful card! We'll be creating the Night of Navy card at the Kickoff Party!

Background Basics—I began by embossing a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Night of Navy cardstock with the NEW Dot To Dot Texture Impressions Folder.  I adhered it to a Night of Navy card base with a combination of Tear & Tape and SNAIL adhesives for a secure hold.

Fresh Focal Point—We have so many flower stamp sets that are great for coloring, so I adore that this one is different and all about basic ink-to-paper stamping!  Bloom By Bloom is a two-step stamp set, which means that you stamp with separate elements to create the completed image. It's easy to position each part of the image with the see-thru photopolymer stamp style. I started with a 3-1/" x 4-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock and found that it helps to stamp the elements in a particular order to allow for appropriate spacing. 
Here is the order I stamped the images:
  • Stamp the larger flower in Calypso Coral in the upper right corner at a slight slant, leaving enough room to add the dots above it later.
  • Stamp the coordinating large stem in Call Me Clover, leaving room for the second flower.
  • Stamp the small flower in stamped-off Calypso Coral ink next to the large flower stem.
  • Stamp the small stem in Call Me Clover.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink in the upper left corner.
  • Stamp the dots over each flower in Night of Navy ink.

I added a 3-1/2" x 1/2" strip of the striped pattern from the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper pack along the bottom edge, then popped up the layer with Dimensionals onto the card front.  I'm not normally a "tilted" focal point person, but I really liked the look of this at an angle.

Bitty Bow—I finished the card by adding a Silver & Petal Pink Baker's Twine bow with a "pinched" Glue Dot onto the larger flower. So sweet!

Two Cool—My second version Calypso Coral embossed layer and card base.  I flipped the Dot To Dot texture so that the recessed side was facing up…I tend to enjoy the recessed look better!  Which texture side do you like best?

This time, I added the sentiment at the bottom of the focal point and stamped off once for the larger flower.  I also moved the bow to the bottom border to accentuate the greeting.  This card design looks great in the Calypso Coral color combination, but I really LOVE the way that the Navy card pops!
