Sweet N Sassy Stamps Feb Features Day 1- Bloom & Grow

Welcome to DAY 1 of our February Release Blog Hops!

Today the DT is thrilled to share the new Bloom & Grow stamp set with you.  This 4"x6" set includes 6 images that can be used together for layering or to create backgrounds.  It also includes 6 beautiful sentiments that have to do with blooming and growing---a lovely new set to get you thinking Spring.

 
  • Large Flower Petal image measures approximately 1.5" x 1.5"
  •  Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set is $15
Here is the card I would like to share with you today


I stamped the flower in blushing bride ink and the stem in pear pizazz and then sponged soft sky ink around it while still in the oval die.  I accented the petals and the center with stickles.  The strip across the bottom was created by stamping the brand new Delightfully Delicate bg in blushing bride ink and accenting the bottom with the scallop die from the Bookmarks and More die set.
