Blended Blooms




When Stampin' Up! released the Blendabilites, I did a bunch of these Blended Blooms.

They ended up in the UFO (UnFinished Objects) box.

A couple of them have found a home.


I broke out the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder.

I cut some off for the first card and used the left over for the second.

Since I used markers (Blendabilities), I can take this to 
MAKE YOUR MARK

ADD A LITTLE TEXTURE
There's embossing on both cards and ribbon on the first.


Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

Wow! Bonnie, you made those blooms pop. You colored them beautifully and in wonderful colors. Nicely embossed, too.
Have a good weekend.

These are so pretty! You are mastering the blendabilities! Love how you've left areas of white, makes it look very realistic. Great job with using both pieces of your embossed background for the two cards. Thanks for playing along again at Happy Little Stampers! xx

So happy that these 2 UFO's found a lovely home. These vivid colors on each flower (feel like spring!) against that touch of embossed white, with the white base - yummy. Glad to see that you used the cold weather to stay busy & productive! TFS & Hugs.

These cards are so beautiful Bonnie! I love the colors and the embossing folder you used as well. The blooms just pop right off the card, which is so beautiful! I have this stamp and as of now, it is a NBUS, but was looking at it the other day wondering if I should give it a go. lol Hugs, Brenda
