Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - Nothing's Better Than and Blossoms In Bloom

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Nothing's Better Than and Blossoms In Bloom Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration, so get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Jan Clothier's Blog. She has made some lovely projects!
Today, the team will be showcasing products using both the Nothing's Better Than and the Blossoms In Bloom Sets, so be sure to check out all of the amazing inspiration! I had the pleasure of working with the Nothing's Better Than Bundle. This set is completely adorbs and has just so many possibilities for all of those delicious indulgences.  Here's a look at the set:
NOTHING'S BETTER THAN BUNDLE
 For my first project today, I created a tropical drink themed card. Cocktail time was always a time-honored tradition with my grandparents (though we kiddos got to have guava juice "cocktails" with umbrellas and cherries). They lived in Hawaii for many years, so it was practically expected to enjoy a glass of Guava juice together while they enjoyed their "adult beverages". This card was inspired by those fond memories. I used Magenta Madness Ink and Daffodil Delight Ink. To get the ombre effect you would ink only the top portion of your stamp in one color then the other half in the other color. Then you would use a Sponge Dauber to blend the two colors in the middle where they met.
 Here's a close up of the details:
My next card uses the "coffee" die cut word and the same technique as the previous card on the coffee cup. I used some of the magenta patterned paper from the 2020–2022 In Color Designer Series Paper in small strips to ground my main images. I crumpled the DSP to create a distressed effect.  
Here's a close-up of the effect:
My final card showcases the cookies images and die cuts from the set on Daffodil Delight Cardstock. I used a few stars from the Stitched Stars Dies to make the cookies pop. I die cut the stars from the same colored cardstock to give it more subtle texture.
This bundle was so much fun to create with and a great way to make fun, playful projects for when you just need that something that helps you through the day like coffee, chocolate, cookies, or cocktails. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs. Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages. They have some pretty amazing projects to share.

    1. Its a miracle that I am alive today. I encounter HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV1/2) for good four (4) years, six (6) months and twelve (12) day with my calculations, before I meet the great Dr. Emmanuel. I am Tina Richard from Fresno California, united state of America and I was affected with herpes virus.Herpes is a viral infection cause by the Herpes simplex virus, marked by painful, watery blister in the skin or mucous membrane or on the genitals. This was what I suffered for good four years. I have visited CVS Pharmacy in Fresno for treatment but no improvement. I meet Dr.Emmanuel online while I was searching for herpes cure I read a testimony about his work. I give a try that now becomes a testimony in my life. I contacted Dr.Emmanuel WhatsApp  +2348140073965 or E-mail: nativehealthclinic@gmail.com

  3. Hawaii and cocktails - perfect mix! I like the ombre effect of the drinks and the subtle way you've added die cuts in the same colour as the background. Gorgeous cards, Lauren.

  6. Always, anywhere and anytime,I feel very comfortable now all to the work of Dr Ebacol,the Herbalist who prepare for me the remedies to my health challenges.i could feel more comfortable when he explained to me how dangerous it's caring Herpes with me getting affected easily with Other sexually transmitted infections. Genital sores increases my risk of transmitting or contracting other sexually transmitted infections, including AIDS.
    Newborn infection. ...
    Bladder problems. ...
    Meningitis. ...
    Rectal inflammation (proctitis).
    I was so scared when he says that because I found a lover who ran into it and had a shock on me after the checkup and develop stroke.
    This has been my earnest prayers for the physician therapist to come in with positive solutions to remedies Herpes and most viral infections. I'm now free and I thank God for leading me to see others getting cured with Herbs. I decided to try and found out that the best way I would have done was to get rid of it and give my testimony. Glory to God I became free after I received his medicine from the DHL and applied as instructed. Till date I had no SYMPTOMS nor virus to detect of me, I called him and thankful for what he did,and ask if he could cure my stroke boyfriend,he said yes and did the same preparation to my boyfriend for his stroke and Recovered from it. Nothing is impossible with Herbs IN CURES, you're the next if you will be willing to apply his medicine and instructions on how to manage.

  8. Herpes is a serious and recurring disease which can't be cured through drugs or injections by the doctors but the best way to deal with Herpes is by taking natural herbs medicine for it,  I have read about DR NOGADU the great herbalist doctor who cure me from herpes  with his powerful herbal medicine.  i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural herbs from God! After 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via UPS SPEED POST and it got to me after 3 days! i used the medicine as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was cured! It was really like a dream but i was  so happy! you should contact him for his herbal medicine because i am a living testimony and i was cured of herpes and his medicine is legit.  I sent him what he requested and he sent me his medicine which I took for 2 good weeks and today I am out here with a negative result. When I went for the test I was so happy after going through his medication. you can reach him through his email: drnogaduherbalist@gmail.com or call/whatsapp number:+2347010627760 he will help you out.
