Good morning and happy half-way-thru-the-weekend! Hope yours is going well – our weather is spectacular and we spent most of yesterday in the garden. We transplanted our blueberries into the raised bed – planted 4 more baby-bluies. It was a nice way to spend the afternoon!
Two of my team members made cards this week using the cool In Bloom stamp set and coordinating Pierced Blooms die set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Their pretty cards reminded me of how cool this set is – the die set in particular! – so I pulled it out! And I used it to make a reprise on a fun fold I did for you a few weeks back. Take a look-see:
This is the card that I made last night on my YouTube live – if you were able to join me, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me! If not, but you’d like to watch the replay, here ’tis!
I was playing along with the Festive Friday challenge this week. I got Sparkle – Polka Dot – Bright Colors – Twine – Celebratory Sentiment – Rhinestones – and Layers! 😉
I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock, cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, that I scored and folded at 2 1/8″ and again at 4 1/4″. I folded the 4 1/4″ as a “valley” (so…normally) and the 2 1/8″ fold the other way. It becomes a “z” fold.
I cut a couple of Mango Melody mats (2″ x 2″) into triangles and then adhered them to the back of the card in the corners. I added triangles cut from 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ squares of black-and-white Pattern Party DSP (this is a Host Reward in the Annual Catalog – you can get it for free with a $180 order!) with more Liquid Glue.
I stamped an In Bloom sentiment in Granny Apple Green on a piece of Basic White and added some In Bloom flowers in Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green. I matted the panel on Mango Melody and adhered it to the inside of the card.
I matted two strips of the Pattern Party DSP on Mango Melody cardstock and adhered them to the two front panels with Liquid Glue.
To make the pop out mechanism, I scored a second 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″ square of Mango Melody cardstock on the diagonal. Then I put the score line on the 1 7/8″ mark on my Paper Trimmer keeping it in the “diagonal” orientation (this is easier to “see” in the video that it is to write!) and snipped the end off the corner.
I folded the square – then set it right over the back matted square. I put Liquid Glue just on the left side of the square – then closed the card over the top of the glued side.
I cut a 2 3/4″ square piece of the DSP in to two triangles and adhered one of them to the visible side of the pop-up mechanism.
Then I created two more Mango Melody-matted DSP squares and, using Liquid Glue (only on ONE side!!), I adhered them to the front panel.
I stamped the In Bloom sentiment in Granny Apple Green on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the label die in the Pierced Blooms die set. Using Liquid glue, I adhered the sentiment to the bottom square on the front panel.
Then it was time to cut petals and flowers and leaves! And – let me tell you, there are 27 dies in the Pierced Blooms Die set – so…you can have a total POSIE PARTY!! This picture will let you see the elements I picked and put together.
For the flower on the pop-out piece – I adhered the leaves to the triangle first – making sure they didn’t extend past the edge of the card. Then I added the flower with Liquid Glue (on that one, the smallest middle flower is popped on with a Dimensional).
I adhered the leaves and two flowers to the top square with Liquid Glue.
I added the two leaves to the bottom square by the sentiment, then tied a little bow with two lengths of white Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack. I adhered the bow with a Glue Dot, then used double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the flower.
I adhered three little flowers on the sentiment – added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels – and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the In Bloom flowers on the front…
…and more of the Pattern Party DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Okay – thank you thank you to Tara Carpenter and Terry Lynn Bright for using this set last week and reminding me how COOL the Pierced Blooms die set and coordinating In Bloom stamp set really is!

Finn Fan Fix
Yesterday was so gorgeous that we took the opportunity to work in our new garden beds!
We decided last week to expand the “new” garden and bring all the raised beds from behind the barn into the “fold” – to maybe slow the deer down a little? And…consolidate all the garden “stuff”.
To facilitate transplanting these four big blueberries and four NEW blueberry plants…
…we pulled down 4 fence panels and…
…brought in the Big Guns.
Work smarter – not harder, right??
Success! All eight bushes in the ground!
Hopefully today or tomorrow we’ll get the raspberries transplanted.
So – speaking of working.
This is WAYNE working…
And THIS is FINN working!
No opposable thumbs but…who’s the smartest one on the farm?! 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
