My love affair with Mini Blooms...

So... PTI came out with a set called Mini Blooms. It seriously has become one of my most favorite floral sets...ever. It doesn't rank quite as high as Sweet Life or Rosie Posie, but it's still up there. Typography with banners and florals are so popular right now. They are ALL over Pinterest (and I do mean ALL over). A friend asked me to make a set of thank you notes for her daughter, and her only stipulation was that they have blue and yellow. This was the beginning of my love affair with the Mini Blooms set that was released this past month from PTI. I seriously adore that set. And I haven't even used the dies yet!!!

I've been really digging white space lately, and I wanted them to be easy to mail, so here is what I came up with:




The banner set from Wplus9 is perfect for those vintage-y prints with a typography feel. My only complaint is that the sentiments in the set are not curved to fit in the banners... It's a little difficult to get them perfectly lined up in the space provided. I really like how clean this card is, but it still definitely has a girly feel to it (a pre-requisite for 98% of the cards that I make). I can't wait to play with this set some more!!

Thanks for visiting me! I'd love it if you became a follower. :)

Supplies:
Card stock: PTI white
Stamps: PTI Mini Blooms; Wplus9 Written on Ribbon
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; PTI-Blueberry Sky, Spring Rain, Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, New Leaf
Dies: Spellbinders Matting Basics
Miscellaneous: Pop Dots

  1. such pretty cards - that banner is such a great stamp with the miniblooms. i was wondering - did you try bending the sentiments as you stuck them to your block (i;m presuming they're clear stamps)? i had to fit a sentiment to curved space and I remembered seeing somewhere (LOL) that the person curved their sentiment - bending it slightly and stuck it to the block - i tried it and it worked great - give it a go :-)

    1. Thank you for the kind words about my project!! I did curve them a little... they are clear, and they are straight as an arrow, so I tried bending them a bit, but it still wasn't perfect. Thanks for the tip though!! :)
