Blooming With Love

I just love this Blooming With Love stamp set! And whatever will I do when 'my' Bella Rose DSP goes away in August? I'm going to have anxiety separation just like I did when Stampin' Up! took away 'my' Cutie Pie paper!
I think this card would have looked better if I had used the solid Riding Hood Red DSP that is in the stripes for the upper background but I didn't want to take it apart. You know what I mean...use your imagination!

Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
Stamp Set: Blooming With Love
Accessories: Bella Rose DSP, Scallop Edge Punch, Paper Crimper, Oval Coluzzle, 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stampin' Write Markers in Ruby Red, Old Olive, Blush Blossom and So Saffron

The outside ruffle is made by using the Scallop Edge Punch on a long strip of Bella Rose DSP. Run it through the paper crimper so it breaks down some of the fibers and makes it super easy to gently maneuver and attach to the back with adhesive. I think Jan Tink is the one who came up with this clever idea, she did it with cardstock and used it for a background around the new wide oval punch.
Nancy Horn is at it again!!!!!

She took the tutorial I posted on the Stationery Set and made one using the Walk In the Park DSP. Pretty cute, huh? You can see Nancy's blog here. Yep! She is an fellow Idahoan.
