greeting card featuring stamped and heat embossed flowers This Bloom card, with its stamped, heat embossed flowers and the word “Bloom” is definitely out of season. I made it because I was using the Outlines stamps to make holiday ornaments and I was inspired to deviate from the plan long enough to make a springlike card while the supplies were out.

Those unfamiliar with heating embossing will find a tutorial here: How to do Heat Embossing. You will need a heat gun. I use the Uchida Embossing Heat Tool with Stand, 120V, 360W.

This card uses two smallish flower stamps from Outlines.  The heat embossing is done with ivory colored embossing powder.

The Bloom stamp is by Katie Hall, G Studio, Hampton Art.

The small bee or flying insect is a gold Outline sticker.  The flower stem and leaves are drawn free hand with Emerald Green Liquid Pearls.

With this card, I’m celebrating spring early.
