Welcome back to the second day of reveals for the Ink to Paper February release. This month's theme is all about blooms and today we introduce you to Pop-Up Envelope Dies + Pop-Up Florals + Just Sentiments: Blooms + Lush Blooms Stamp Set and Dies + Inside Greetings: Blooms Stamp Set. This will be a long post, so grab a drink and buckle up!First, a closed envelope shot then below you see the open view.
The flowers and leaves have accordian-folded strips adhered to the backs. You "smoosh" them down to close the flaps then they "pop" up when you open the flaps.
It's hard to get a good view in my light box of the space between the flowers and the envelope. I popped the sentiment with foam tape.
STAMPS: Pop-Up Florals (Ink to Paper).
INK: Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado, True Black, Sweet Blush, Pale Peony, Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Scarlet Jewel, Aqua Mist, Tropical Teal.
PAPER: Bitty Big: Soft Stone, White, Soft Stone, True Black (Ink to Paper).
DIES: Pop-Up Envelope Dies, Pop-Up Florals.

I next wanted to create an A-2 sized card using more of these flowers in a non-pop-up mode paired with this fun sentiment.
I used one of the stripes from the plaid stencil set by Papertrey Ink and color blended with Shabby Shutters distress oxide ink. A quick and easy design topped off with a trio of enamel dots.

Next is probably my favorite set of the release: Lush Blooms.
The flower and leaves involve 3 step stamping which gives a beautiful dimensional look with very little effort!
Again, I added background dimension by using Liquitex modeling paste with one of the Modern stencils by Papertrey Ink. I angled the pierced frame to give some added visual interest.

I couldn't stop with just one lush bloom, so created a coral version.
I added a belly band of vellum so the sentiment would not cover up much of the background.
