Bitty Blooms Pop of Colour. Last year I made a card with the mini fruit punches that were in the Spring/Summer Catalogue 2018 and I loved it. It was a black card with just the fruit giving the pop of colour, plus some white heat embossing. When I saw the Bitty Blooms punches in this year’s Spring/Summer Catalogue, I knew I had to repeat the idea. So here it is.
I decided to use a few tiny scraps of 2018-2020 InColor card stock. Personally, I would never have thought that some of them would work together, but they always do! As there are 3 punches, but 5 shapes, it was easy to choose which colours would be flowers and which would be the centre and leaf. A few quick punches and some tiny bits of glue and the flowers were made. I used the Take Your Pick Tool to help move the pieces around. The tacky end is perfect for all those tiny bits and pieces. Did you know that it is still available? It is not in any of the current catalogues, but carried over from Autumn/Winter. I always keep the cover on the tacky end so it is ready to use when I need it.
I wanted to add a bit of extra dimension to the card, so grabbed the amazing, new Rectangle Stitched Framelits. There are 13 dies that stack beautifully AND add stitching to both sides of the cut. If you struggle cutting mats, then these are for you. On this card they just add a little extra layer and some the stitched edge. I added a sentiment from the Part of My Story FREE Stamp set, using White Embossing Powder. The stamp set is great for cards, but is perfect for Scrapbooks and Memories and More.
