Purple and Green be bold blooms


Hi there!

I finally got hold of Spellbinders’ Be Bold Blooms die set and I love it even more in real life! I’ve been kicking myself for not grabbing it when I saw it at the start of the year, so I certainly didn’t dither when I saw that Sir Stampalot had them back in stock at the end of last week.

So for my first of undoubtedly MANY cards using this set, I’m playing along with the Color Hues challenge where the two colours are green and purple. I had fun with all my old Bazzill Basic cardstock – and I’m very grateful for all the monochromatic packs I bought back in the day!

After cutting the blooms, I pulled out the Welcome Fall (Happy Harvest) die set by Nichol Spohr for Spellbinders and die cut the apple basket. This basket has open sides and I always like to fill it with foliage rather than see the background through it! So I cut a few extra leaves and adhered them to the back of the basket before arranging the Be Bold Blooms.

Finally, I added a Woodware sentiment to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
