Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Bloomin' Love

Hello and welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. I'm so excited to be taking part in this blog hop with so many talented fellow stampers from around the world. The theme for this hop is Love and have combined the classic Bloomin' Love set with the new Magical Day bundle from the Occasions catalogue, they make such a fun and quirky love theme. 

I just love all the images in the Magical Day bundle and have framed each one in their own scene within the hearts window using the Sweet & Sassy framelits. There is such a variety of techniques used to inlaid die cutting, ink blending, white heat embossing and embossing using embossing folders to bring out each character/s in their scene. The die cut love sentiment is from Sunshine Wishes dies and used on each card to tie them all altogether. I have die cut three pieces for each one to give it that thickness like a chipboard and makes it stand out so much better.

Here is a unique and cute Valentine's card with the dragon among the gorgeous blooms from the Bloomin' love set. Pinewood Plank dynamic embossing folder used on the front panel to give extra texture. 

Love this wizard and he's conjuring a love spell lol, it's a retired chipboard embellishment, but any heart shape embellishment or die cut would look awesome. The Sweet & Sassy framelits have been utilised to nest within each other for a puzzle piece like inlaid die cut effect. 

The mermaid and sea horse are just adorable and love the waves from Magical Mates framelit dies to create a pocket insert with the waves border. Ink blending and copic colouring have been applied for the background and die cut love sentiment.

The fabulous unicorn has been set against an elegant dazzling diamonds glimmer paper die cut floral background using the lovely Bloomin' Hearts thinlits. Copic colouring used for both the unicord and the love die cut sentiment.

The final card has the dragon and the knight celebrating love. This was a fun card to make with the hearts die cut window frames and the multiple die cut love sentiment. Ink blending used on Shimmery cardstock with distress inks to get that water distress effect. Copic colouring used on the images as well as on the wooden chipboard heart embellishment that the dragon is holding. 

I hope you have enjoyed and found inspiration. All these sets work so well together, adding so much more creativity and use out of them. Thank you to Jessie for organising this wonderful hop. Please be sure to continue to hop around and see all  the amazing creations featuring the love theme.

  10. This may not sound fair, because it’s not

    But did you know that you can be a guy’s dream girl...

    I mean, you can literally check off every box on his “perfect woman” list...

    But if you mess up this one thing, he’ll drop you the second another option comes along?

    My friend James Bauer discovered this missing “secret ingredient” all men are constantly searching for in a woman.

    And most women have no clue it exists because guys aren’t even aware of it.

    We just KNOW when it’s missing.

    ===> The “Secret Ingredient” to obsessive love <=====

    The really cool thing is, when you know how to give a man this “secret ingredient”...

    It will send a shockwave of desire for you straight to his brain and he will HAVE to have you.

    In fact, when you do this... watch his face light up, almost as if he’s just been zapped.

    It’s that moment when he says to himself “Where have you BEEN all my life?”

    Every woman should know this. Check it out here: ====> Why men leave “perfect” women... <=====
