Day 1 of Bloomin' Love...

I've been using the Bloomin' Love stamp set and coordinating products over the past month and wanted to share some of those projects with you.  This is a great set and more versatile than just for Valentine's Day.  Today's card uses some words from the set, but also the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits dies, the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper.

The flowers are included the die set and were cut from Blushing Bride card stock.  
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE GLIMMER PAPER!  It doesn't matter what color, I love them all!
Here's a quick tip for cutting these beautiful intricate dies - Cut Glimmer Paper face down with the die using the Precision Base Plate on your Big Shot Platform.  Then use the new Big Shot Die Brush gently with the glitter side down and gently roll out those tiny pieces.  Works perfectly!

Supplies used:
Bloomin' Love stamp set and Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Dies
Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Blushing Bride card stock

Big Shot Die Brush  by Stampin' Up!

Love intricate die designs but not removing excess pieces of paper? Make it easy—use the Big Shot Die Brush. It's simple:

1. Run the die through the Big Shot.
2. Place the die face-down on the foam pad.
3. Roll the brush over the die.

It removes the excess pieces of paper from the die (the ones that you discard). It's a great timesaver—you can spend your time creating, not cleaning dies.

* Includes foam pad: 4-1/2" x 7-1/4" | 11.4 x 18.4 cm
* Brush size: 1-1/2" x 5-1/2" | 3.8 x 14 cm
