Stampin’ Up! Brushed Blooms FSM467

 I’m back with another card using one of the new stamp sets from the Jan-Jun 2021 mini catalog that just went live Jan 5th. If you haven’t checked it out yet you are missing a lot of great new stamp sets.

I used the Brushed Blooms stamp set for this card that I’m entering in the Freshly Made Sketches 467 challenge.  The challenge was for a slim line card which has become a very popular trend in card making lately.

I started with a 8 1/2 by 7 inch piece of heavy Whisper White(now called Basic White) which I scored in half to form the base. I then used a piece of gold foil cut to 8 1/4 by 3 1/4. On top of that I added my stamped piece of Whisper white cut to 8 by 3 on which I used 7 different shades of red to pink ink to stamp the background using the stamp from the Brushed Blooms set. 

I stamped the sentiment from the Hearts & Kisses set on the very bottom with memento ink. I added a gold foil heart that I die cut with a heart from the Many Hearts Dies. I then stamped the lips with Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White and punched it out using the Kiss Punch which is sold as a bundle with the Hearts & Kisses Stamp.I stamped the xoxo from the same set and fuzzy cut it out. I popped up the  lips and the xoxo using dimensionals.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Hearts & Kisses set and then stamped the lips with Lovely Lipstick to match lips on the outside.

I finished it off with a slim line envelope made with the Love You Always DSP. I cut a piece to 8 1/2 by 11. Score the top of the 11 in side at 1 1/4 and the bottom at 10 in. I then score the sides at 2 in and 5 1/2. I cut each corner out along the score lines. Rounded the corners on the 1 1/4 in flap and then glued it together.

Here is the sketch the card was based off.

Hope this inspired you to get crafty.  Have a good weekend. I get to babysit my 8 month old granddaughter Saturday night. I’m looking forward to it. Just hope she sleeps through the night for us!
