March 2016 Bloom Box


My Bloom Box is here!  I so look forward to this every month!  Love, love, love it!!  You get the makings for four cards, a full rubber stamp set and directions with pictures.  The directions also detail techniques.  This month it is 'Fusion Sponge' and 'Stamped Background'.  It also features tips.  March's tips is using positive AND the negative from the dies.


This months stamp set is 'Tickled Pink'.  I live in Florida so this is perfect!  If you live up north what a great stamp to dream about tropical weather!  We get this stamp set before it becomes available to everyone else.  In approx. 3 months it will be in one of our catalogs.








 





These are so darn Cute!  Love it!!  :-)



This one uses the technique 'Stamped Background'  I stamped all the different leaves in three different greens, then I took a small size D block with ink and stamped a harlequin pattern.  So easy & quick.




I think this one is my favorite....hard to say.  It just looks like the flamingo is going to walk across the page.  Love the glossy effect.  That was accomplished from using Journey Glaze.


This one is using the technique 'Fusion Sponge'  When I was doing this at first I thought - that looks like a kindergarten colored it.  But when I was done I loved it and I would never have tried it without this kit.


This last card is taking advantage of using the negative of our thin dies to make the water wave effect.  And the sequence for bubbles.  Of course everything sparkles!  LOVE IT!  All the sequins, photo pin element, ribbon, die cuts, journey sparkle dust and journey sparkle cuts (bigger glitter) are included.



Can you tell I am excited about our Bloom Box?  I get done with one and I can't wait until the next one arrives!  I have tried so many things that are out of my comfort zone and realize I really do like it.

Just keep on stampin!  Come visit any time!    :-)
