Hello stampers! It has been SO long since I have written a blog post. This is the longest break that I have ever taken. Life happens sometimes, and something had to give. It’s great to be back though, and I have an amazing suite to share with you. It’s called Mediterranean Blooms. I love everything about this suite and perhaps when you get to the end of this post, you will also be in love with it!!


The Paper

Pretty paper makes me happy. Just looking at it can make me smile. It also makes it super easy to make a beautiful card. Here is a close up of the paper.

This gorgeous paper from Stampin'Up! is called Mediterranean Blooms with lemons and oranges on one side and shades of blue tiles on the other.


The Dies


The dies cut out the stamped images but also two of the orange branches on the paper. There is a white edge around the die cuts so you can definitely choose to fussy cut as well like I did in the photo above.

Not only are there dies that coordinate with the stamps, there are also some great greenery dies and a lovely greenery frame and coordinating stitched frame. Just gorgeous!! Take a look.

The Stamps


The stamps in this Mediterranean Blooms suite are called Citrus Blooms which is entirely appropriate with the images of oranges or clementines. The font of the sayings is also quite lovely. They include “hello”, “all the love”, “just checking in” and “you’re the best kind of person”. There are two little flowers and a geometric print which would lend themselves very well to background stamping.

Thus far I have only had time to make two cards with this lovely suite but I am looking forward to making many more!! Scroll down a little further and then you will see my Stamping Through My Stash video featuring this suite.
