I love Concord & 9th’s innovative designs and just had to get the Blooms Fill In set to play with. Rather than red and green I went with a more vintage feel of peach and blue mixed with pops of green and orange. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.

Fully Stamped Background

The solid background around the flowers in the Blooms Fill In set reminds me of the gouache illustrations I adore, and this set makes stamping that style a breeze. On white card, I stamped the solid background in Mountain Mist, the flowers in Peach Perfect with the flower centres in Firebrick.

For the leaves, I used Forest Glades and Evergreen and finally the berries were stamped in Mango Smoothie.

I blended Firebrick ink over a scrap piece of card, stamped the Merry sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Stained Glass Greetings set in clear embossing ink and white heat embossed before die cutting with the matching die. I also blended Peach Perfect ink on another piece of card and then stamped, and white heat embossed the rest of the sentiment and trimmed to a skinny banner.

I mounted the background panel on a Neenah Desert Storm card base, and foam mounted the greeting. As a final touch, I accented the panel with Nuvo Bottle Green droplets and Sherbert sequins.

Die Cut Focal Point

For my second card, I used many of the same elements. I stamped the floral arrangement as before, but this time used the matching dies to die cut the flower sprig.

Again, I blended Firebrick and Peach Perfect inks into scraps of card and stamped and die cut sentiments from the Stained Glass Greetings set.

I must admit I love this colour combination!

For the background, I stamped Diagonal Stripes in clear embossing ink on a panel of Neenah Desert Storm card. I foam mounted a white die cut hexagon using the Blooms Fill In die set and then wrapped the panel with twine.

I then foam mounted the floral focal piece and sentiment before again accenting with Nuvo Bottle Green droplet and Sherbert sequin.
