I absolutely LOVE Bundles of Blossoms Background!!! Adult coloring at it’s best!!! For my first card I stamped it on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored it with Peerless Watercolors and a small water brush. But Copics, pencils, whatever your coloring medium of choice, it will work.

I knew I wanted to color it with bright colors and I’m loving them on a black base so after I was done coloring, I popped it up on a Black Licorice card stock base with foam mounting tape. I cut the die from Grateful for You from Black Licorice card stock and stamped the coordinating sentiment with Versamark on Boysenberry card stock and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. I popped them both up on foam and it was done! With that colorful background you don’t need much else :)

For my second card I went a little simpler. Don’t want to color? No need, this makes a gorgeous black and white statement background, don’t you think? And talk about easy peasy! Basically stamp it, add a sentiment, and you’re done!

I went a little further than that with this card but it was still nice and quick and sure to please—I can totally see adding a bright color behind the Striped Sentiment Strip Cover-Up Die-namics that I used on this card to cut out the background. I went with gold, but any bright color shining through would be awesome! I stamped Bundles of Blossoms Background on Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice hybrid ink, cut it out, and popped it up on foam mounting tape on Gold Shine card stock and adhered it to the Sweet Tooth card stock base.

Again, I cut the die from Grateful for You from Black Licorice card stock and popped it up on foam tape. The rest of the sentiment was stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock cut with Blueprints 29 Die-namics and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and adhered. To finish off I added some gold glitter enamel dots.

And that’s it for
MFT’s Release Countdown for June! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tonight for my New Product Launch post!
