Sizzix Summer Release | Bloom into Summer

Happiness is the art of making a bouquet of those flowers within reach. ~ Bob Goddard

Flower themed card making supplies make me happy. There I said it. And I'm pretty sure I'm not alone because there are lots of them out there for us to collect and make with. Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I made with my latest happy. These stamps, dies and stencils are part of the summer release from Sizzix and are available now at Scrapbook.com. If you are interested in how each card was created, keep scrolling. If you are just interested in the new stamps, dies, stencils and other products that I used you can find them at the bottom of this post.

Sizzix Bloom Into Summer Cards by Juliana Michaels

ONE OF A KIND CARD

First up, I used the Sizzix Stencil and Stamp Tool with the Abstract Blooms Stencil. This was my first time using the stencil part of this tool. I really liked how it made lining up the stencil super easy for each layer. It is a little challenging to figure out where to position a precut piece of cardstock, but I knew I would probably trim off some of it to create a mat layer, so it worked out just fine to start with a piece of smooth white cardstock cut to 4.5 x 6.25 inches.

One Of A Kind Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Sizzix Abstract Blooms Stencil and Born to Bloom Stamp Set

To add the various colors to create my design I used Distress Oxide Inks in the following colors: Tattered Rose, Saltwater Taffy, Abandoned Coral, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Bundled Sage, Rustic Wilderness, Speckled Egg, Uncharted Mariner, Peacock Feathers, Pumice Stone and Scorched Timber. I used a variety of small blending brushes to apply the color. For this particular stencil design, I also used some Mint Tape to mask off areas so that I wouldn't get a color in an area that I didn't want it.


Once the stenciled background was completed, I trimmed it down to 4 x 5.75 inches and inked the edges with Scorched Timber Distress Oxide Ink. I then cut a piece of white cardstock to 4.5 x 6.25 inches and inked the edges with Scorched Timber Distress Oxide Ink and adhered the stenciled background to the center of this panel.


The flower die cuts are from various Tim Holtz Sizzix Wildflower Stems Die Sets. You could also use the Vault Wildflowers Die Set or any floral silhouette die set you have. I cut them from a piece of Distress Watercolor Cardstock that I had sprayed with Scorched Timber Spray Stain. To give them a little dimension I adhered foam squares behind the heads of the flowers.


For the sentiment I used the Sizzix Born to Bloom stamp set and Versafine Clair Ink in Nocturne. This is definitely one of my favorite new inks for stamping, especially for fine detail stamps just as this one. I then trimmed the paper down and inked the edges and adhered it with a bit of foam adhesive for some dimension.

The finished card size is 4.5 x 6.25 inches.


LET YOUR DREAMS BLOSSOM CARD

For this second card, I pulled out some Distress Watercolor Cardstock and the Sizzix Flowers and Fern Die Set and just started die cutting. I ended up cutting out 3 of each piece to create the cluster on this card. I didn't end up using one of the small ferns, but you could certainly tuck that in somewhere!

Let Your Dreams Blossom Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Sizzix Flowers and Ferns Die Set and Born to Bloom Stamp Set

I then used a variety of Distress Inks to add a water color effect to each layer. I used Distress Inks in the following colors: Tattered Rose, Saltwater Taffy, Abandoned Coral, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Bundled Sage, Rustic Wilderness, Speckled Egg, Uncharted Mariner, Peacock Feathers, Pumice Stone and Scorched Timber.

To achieve this, I smooshed the ink pad onto my craft mat, spritzed it with some water and then smooshed my paper into the ink. I repeated this for each of the same shape. I dried the ink with my heat tool and then repeated the process to build up the layers of color and interest. I repeated this process of ink smooshing for each die cut piece. Once all of the die cuts were colored, I assembled the various flowers and ferns.


With the flowers and ferns completed, it was time to work on the background panel. At this point I already knew I would be making a slightly larger than normal card so that I could include all of the flowers I had made. I cut a piece of Distress Watercolor Cardstock to 4.5 x 6.25 inches. I then smooshed a Speckled Egg Distress Ink Pad onto my craft mat, spritzed the ink with some water and smooshed my paper into the ink. I dried the paper with my heat tool and repeated the process, adding more ink and water as needed. I continued this until the entire piece of paper was covered with ink.


Next, I played around with creating a bouquet with the assembled die cuts. I also had the sentiment stamp out that I wanted to use so that I could make sure they would all fit on the card front. Once I was happy with the arrangement of the die cuts, I placed a piece of Press N Seal over the bouquet, pressed down to make sure they were all stuck to it and then lifted it up and flipped it over. I could then easily apply adhesive to the backside of the flowers while still keeping the bouquet I had created. I used a mix of liquid and foam tape adhesive.

The sentiment for this card is also from the Sizzix Born to Bloom stamp set and is stamped using Versafine Clair Ink in Nocturne. To complete the card, I trimmed the background panel to 4.25 x 6 inches and inked the edges with Scorched Timber Distress Ink. I then cut a piece of white cardstock to 4.5 x 6.25 inches and inked the edges with Scorched Timber Distress Ink.
