Hello, friends! I have the privilege to share with you the November Bloom Box from Fun Stamper’s Journey! These Bloom Boxes are kits that come complete with four, ready-to-make projects. There is also an instruction booklet that gives you a step by step instruction and finished photograph of each project you are making. Four cards in one box, how fun!
The November Bloom Box is a tea themed box. You receive a full stamp set, Cup of Tea, and if you choose, you can add on the coordinating dies. I created one card by following the step-by-step instructions, and a second card using a few of my own supplies and the supplies in the box. First, let’s take a look at the ready-to-make card that comes in the box!
I went ahead and followed the step by step instructions for this card. All the pieces I needed were perfectly cut out and included. The only items I needed from my own stash were some inks, adhesive, and basic tools like scissors.
After I created this cute little card, I decided to mix things up a bit and create something with the stamp set and some of the papers from the kit. There is included in the kit this gorgeous blue cardstock that was intended to be a card base for one of the other cards in the kit. I decided to use this paper to do some pattern stamping on, and then emboss the imaged in some GILDED EMBOSSING POWDER.
After my stamping was complete, I added some ink around the edges of the cardstock. I wanted inks that were close in color, so that I could create a gradient of dark to light. I used my OZ SURFACE INK, and then the darker color of CABANA just around the edges. The colors together are just stunning, dont you think?
I then cut down a piece of the blue cardstock to fit in the center of the card base I created. Then, I added the ink around the edges just like I did before. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in some more GILDED, and also stamped and embossed a teapot, cup, and saucer. Then, I used the coordinating dies to cut these out.
I layered everything together and adhered the pieces down. For the popped up panel in the middle, I used some craft foam behind to give dimension. Then, I also used some foam adhesive on the tea pot and cup.
Finally, I added a few sparkly pink sequins from the kit around the center images and sentiment.
The photos honestly do not do justice to the amount of shine on this embossing powder!
I hope this gives you a fun look into the FSJ Bloom Box for November. Not only are the projects included so cute and easy to put together, but the individual pieces are all so amazing that you may be inspired to step away from the instructions and just create something unique on your own!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Until next time,
