CASE-ing the Catty Mother's Day Bloom for You - #CTC75

I have had a couple of weeks break from CASE-ing the Catty but I am back today to feature a card that we made earlier today in my Card Class.  The theme this week #CTC75 is Mother's Day and I am highlighting a single stamp which is retiring, Bloom for You. ($17.00 wood)

You may have come from Bronwyn Eastley and wow a mum is going to love receiving this card.

I have used a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then used the Hello Honey Stampin' Write Marker on an acrylic block with a little spritz of water to make the background. I have then used the Colour Spritzer Tool (which retired a few years ago) to splash a little colour once the image had dried in Hello Honey, Pumpkin Pie and Lost Lagoon.

You will then need to stamp the Bloom image three times in Pumpkin Pie and punch 2 out with the Fun Flower Punch and one with the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch and then stamp one in Hello Honey and punch out with the 1/2" Circle Punch.

I have used a strip of tear and tape adhesive at the back of the Whisper White cardstock and then scrunched up the Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon and then tied a beautiful bow to finish it off.

Cardstock:  Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Fun Flower Punch, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Very Vanilla 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon (retired), Colour Spritzer Tool (retired)
