Stampin' Up! Art in Bloom Congratulations Card Featuring the Stitched Greenery Die

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.

This group is for anyone and everyone, no matter your skill level. This group is open to everyone, globally!
