Bloom with Hope for Try Stampin on Tuesday 210

It’s the first day of Spring.  Yay!!  And it’s just begun to snow (4″-6″ expected).  Boo!  But, before it gets too bad out, my daughter an I are going to treat ourselves to some So Fun Yogurt.  They’re having a special first day of Spring offer here.  It seems like a good way to celebrate Spring, snow and an early dismissal.  Besides, we just like their frozen yogurt.

I played with Bloom with Hope and sketch #210 from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday.  This one helped me meet a card need.

This sketch made for a perfect clean and simple card.  And with Bloom with Hope, I ended up with a lovely sympathy card.  Which as I said, is just what I needed.

I wanted my flower to have some dimension. After snipping a few of the petals apart, I used my Simply Scored Stylus to emboss parts of the top and underneath sides of the petals.  This embossed flower was placed over a blossom that was stamped directly on the smallest Whisper White square.  It gives it a little something without taking away from the simple elegance.
