Update Tuesday - January 14, 2020 - Thoughtful Blooms -


Thanks for joining me this week for UpdateTuesday!  I hope you have all had a fantastic Tuesday.  Good here, just super busy so I am even late typing this blog post.  Well, late compared to when I usually get it done.

The image that Stampin' UP! shared with us this morning for inspiration has three adorable cards in it.  Of course I chose to just make one of those.  I tried to do the entire photo the first time I did my Update Tuesday post, several months ago.  I learned my lesson.  Way too many projects to blog in one day!  LOL!

Here is the photo they shared:

Are these cards cute or what?!  I think they are all pretty adorable.  But I chose to make the one on the left.  I love the way the colors just look so pretty together.  But, of course I only have three of this four colors in my Designer Series Paper stash.  I don't have the top color, Terracotta Tile.  So instead I used Melon Mambo.  I hope you agree, it turns out super cute too!

I decided that this card also could use a little bit of upgrading...and when I say little, I mean small.  so I used the Small Bloom punch to pop up the large center flower.

Something as simple as adding one small punched image to a card can make it look like a new card.  

Here are both of the cards together:

These cards have the same layout, just one element is  punched out and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. Which version do you like best?

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!

I live & love to inspire you!
