Stampin' Up! Art in Bloom Card with Expressions in Ink and Ink Blended DSP

Hello my crafty friend. Thank you for popping in to view this beautiful card and tutorial. This card features the Stampin' Up! Art in Bloom Stamp Set and the oh-so-gorgeous Stampin' Up! Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (DSP). I can't get enough of both of these products. The Art in Bloom bundle comes with a hybrid embossing folder -- it both embosses and cuts! It's so awesome and a lot of fun to use -- I can't wait to make more projects with the Stampin' Up! Bloom Hybrid embossing folder.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Prepare Your Cardstock: cut/trim/score/burnish all cardstock as described above

  2. Blend Polished Pink ink on the inside of the Bloom Hybrid embossing folder, with a Blending Brush

  3. Snap the coordinating flower/bloom die into place in the Bloom hybrid embossing folder, place Basic White cardstock in the embossing folder, and run through the die cutting machine (treat the hybrid embossing folder as a 3D embossing folder when making the sandwich)

  4. Blend Polished Pink ink on the Layer #1 Pattern Party DSP

  5. Attach Layer #1 Pattern Party DSP and Layer #2 Expressions in Ink DSP together

  6. Wrap a layer of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the center of the DSP; adhere the ends of the ribbon to the back of the DSP layers with Tear & Tape

  7. Adhere the DSP layers to the front of the card base

  8. Arrange and adhere the three blooms to the front of the card; adhere with liquid glue and Stampin' Dimensionals in various areas to give the flowers lift and dimension as desired

  9. Color a second section of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with the Light Polished Pink Stampin' Blends alcohol marker

  10. Tie the ribbon in a double bow and attach to the front of the card with a Mini Glue Dot or a small piece of Tear & Tape

  11. Apply anti-static powder, if you have it, to the Basic White cardstock for the sentiment

  12. Stamp the sentiment in VersaMark on the sentiment cardstock; cover in Basic Black Stampin' Emboss Powder and melt with a heat tool

  13. Adhere the sentiment to the card with the adhesive of your choice (I used a trimmed piece of Foam Adhesive Strips to give it dimension)

  14. Stamp the outline leaf image on the inside of the card with Polished Pink ink

  15. Decorate the flowers with Polished Pink In Color jewels

Let's Connect, Share & Learn Together

Virtual Card Classes via Zoom

I offer live card classes open to everyone globally. If you're in the US, there are options for class kits to go, with prepared, precut project materials, PDF tutorials, live class via Zoom, with an additional $15 in Stampin' Up! products at no additional chage -- all with free shipping. For those outside the US, you will receive the PDF tutorials and the live class via Zoom.


Classes will be saved for viewing for up to 30 days. You also have the option to save the video(s) to your device so you can watch them anytime you want.

Meetup Group

Find all my events and classes in one place! Have you ever used Meetup? What is Meetup? Meetup is a service used to organize online groups that host in-person and virtual events for people with similar interests. My vision for this group is to gather crafters together -- online and/or in person (when possible) -- for a fun time creating projects, learning new techniques, and of course, meeting other likeminded crafters. This group is for anyone and everyone, no matter your skill level. This group is open to everyone, globally!


I schedule events for making cards, scrapbooking, gift packaging, and more. I also coordinate my card classes to go via Meetup.

Crafting In The Stamping Nook Facebook Group

As a creative coach, I am here to help you with your projects -- I do not have to be your demonstrator for me to help! We are a community of crafters learning from each other! Members are encouraged to share crafty and DIY projects of all types (and of any brand), share tips, and of course meet others with the same crafting passion. I often share my projects, tutorials, etc., and of course, incorporate fun activities as well (prizes included)! I hope you join & participate so I can learn from you too! Everyone is welcome -- demonstrators included!
