The Stampin' Up! Art in Bloom Stamp Set is so versatile and it makes every card look like a work of art. Here are just a few ways to use the stamp set -- (1) stamp the delicate floral images on card fronts, (2) stamp the line art images first, then stamp with the solid washed images to quickly add a watercolored look, (3) stamp the line art images and watercolor each flower, (4) stamp the line art images and color with sponge daubers. Don't forget the coordinating Bloom Hybrid embossing folder -- it will give the blooms that extra wow-factor.

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!
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.
