Botanical Blooms for Stamp Review Crew

Botanical Blooms Banner

Welcome to the Botanical Blooms Blog Hop from Stamp Review Crew! We are an international team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators looking to share projects around a single stamp set – often one you’ve had in your collection a while. We hope to bring you fresh inspiration to dig out those abandoned stamp sets!

That said, I used this Botanical Blooms fairly recently, so I was feeling a little burnt out when it came to using again today. So, whilst I love my very simple project, I’m not sure it’s terribly original!



I’ve kept my project very simple, but it’s actually one I’ve been meaning to try for a while. I masked a straight line off across my card with post-it notes. I was going to use Washi Tape, but actually when I removed it, it tore up my card a little bit, so I switched to Post-It notes.

I then added stamped leaves from the Botanical Blooms set across the boundary, trying to get a fun mix of greens. Once happy, I removed the Post-Its and added my greeting.

It’s unusual for me to make a one-layer card though, so that’s a fun twist too – and it’s a super quick card to boot!

I’m sure the rest of the team have been more creative than me, why not hop around and find out:
