Hi Stamping Friends!
It's time for "Last Thursdays" monthly card class coming up this week on January 25! After designing all the cards for my 20-Card Kickoff Party, I selected my 4 favorite stamp sets (as of today!) to spotlight on this Thursday's class! If you couldn't make it to my big Kickoff Party next weekend, join us for this laid-back, budget-friendly alternative. Or, come to both if you can! I'll have all of the Kickoff Party cards on display!
Don't Miss Out! Have you joined the Too Cool Stamping VIP Facebook Group? Today, I'll be posting another Heartfelt Blooms card idea and we're having a glittery & sparkly contest, too! Join today and see what's happening behind the scenes in the VIP All-Access community!

Heartfelt Blooms Heartfelt Thoughts Cards
The Heartfelt Blooms flower image has such superior detail that it literally took my breath away when I first used it! Seriously, it is so gorgeous! When a stamp is that awesome on its own, you don't need to add a lot of extra frills. I kept the card fairly monochromatic and let the stamp's elegance shine through!

Background Basics—I started by adhering a 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" layer of Fresh Fig cardstock to a 4-1/78" x 3-5/8" layer of Silver Foil. Next, I inked up the Heartfelt Blooms image in Fresh Fig ink and stamped it off the bottom edge of a 2-3/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White. After adhering that to the background, I wrapped a strip of the Fresh Fig Woven Ribbon around the layer and secured the ends on the back with Tear & Tape. The whole background layer was popped up with Dimensionals.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Heartfelt Blooms sentiment in Memento Black Ink onto Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, then die-cut it with the Petals & More Thinlits dies. It's popped up with more Dimensionals and accented with Rhinestone Jewels.
Two Cool—I tried the same elements with a Dapper Denim and Pool Party color combination in a vertical style card. I swapped out the Finely Woven Ribbon for some Dapper Denim Baker's Twine that gives this version a more casual look.
