OSAT Blog Hop - Love is in the air

Good Morning, Stampers!

Welcome to the February Love is in the Air Blog Hop with One Stamp At A Time!
I am so glad you are joining us for a little LOVE inspiration!

I am having so much fun creating with the Bloomin' Love stamp set! 
I call this card my "cluster card". I love clustering things together rather than
having perfecly matted layers. For me, it adds a lot more interest and really draws
your eye around the entire card!
I was able to personalize it by adding the date, too!
It's a fun idea for any event. Birthday, Anniversary/Wedding, etc.
and a great way to remember the date, lol!

To create this card:
1. Stamp the heart image onto Crumb Cake cardstock using Whisper White ink. 
2. Stamp a few small hearts randomly using Crumb Crumb Cake ink.
3. Stmap the date nd xoxoxo using Early Espresso ink.
4. Stamp the banner and sentiment onto Rose Red cardstock using Early Espresso ink. Cut.
5. Stamp (3) flowers onto Whisper White cardstock using Rose Red ink. Cut.
6. Emboss a strip of Whisper White cardstock using the Happy Hearts embossing folder,
7. Add a small strip of Love Blossom designer paper to the bottom of the card.
8. Adhere the embossed hearts.
9. Adhere the banner using Stampin' Dimensionals.
10. Adhere the flowers using Stampin' Dimensionals.
11. Add a rhinestone to the center of each flower.

 My next project is a little ice cream cup that I altered with the Love Blossom designer paper.
I love all the dainty patterns from this pack and the fact that it isn't occasion-specific, I will be
able to use it for lots of Spring events! 

Filling the cup and enclosing the spoon makes for
a yummy Valentine treat!

To create this cup:
1. Cover the cup using the Love Blossoms designer paper.
2. Cover the lid using the Love BLossoms paper and circle framelits.
3. Add a strip of silver glimmer paper to the edge of the lid.
4. Stamp the heart images onto Whisper White cardstock using Blush Blossom ink.
5. Stamp the sentiment on top of the heart using Early Epsresso ink.
6. Cut the image using a circle framelit.
7. Stamp one sentiment using Rose Red ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
8.Stamp the other sentiment using Early Espresso ink onto Whisper White cardstock. 
9. Cut both sentiment using the Bitty Banner framelits.
10. Adhere the ends of the banners to the circle.
11. Add a silver clip to the top of the circle along with a piece of Silver Sequin trim.
12. Adhere the piece to the lid using Stampin' Dimensionals.
13. Stamp the flower onto Whisper White cardstock using Rose Red ink. Cut.
14. Adhere the flower to the top of the clip with a glue dot.
15. Adhere (1) rhienstone to the center of the flower.
16. Add (2) rhienstones to the heart as desired.
17. Tie a bow in the silver cord and adhere to the top of the clip with a glue dot.
18. Tie a bow in the Blushing Bride satin ribbon and adhere to the edge of the lid with glue dots.

To create the spoon:
1. Punch a heart from the Love Blossoms designer paper using the Itty Bitty Heart punch.
2. Tie a bow in the silver cord and and adhere to the spoon with a glue dot.
3. Adhere the heart to the center of the bow using a glue dot.
