GIU Day 5 - Bold Blooms

This is my second post today - if you're looking for the So Suzy Stamps April Release post, go here!

Good morning everyone, and welcome to Day 5 of my Growing in Unity week! I'm the Growing in Unity gal this week over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog, which means I'll be sharing a project created with my Unity stamps with you every day. I invite you to come back each day and leave a comment for a chance to be one of the (2) lucky people to win a bag of (25) Unity stamps! Woohoo! If you're new to my blog, I'd love it if you became a follower and join in the fun over on the Caffeinated Papercuts Facebook page or followed Caffeinated Papercuts on Instagram. :)

I cannot believe we're on Day 5 already - last post of my week! Get your comments in by midnight EST TONIGHT, April 1st and I'll be announcing the winners next week. Be sure to stop back and see if it's you!

I went back to the flowers...I HAD to! Sadly I also had to use this card as a dear friend lost her mom recently, but this sure did bring a smile to her face.

I stamped the big bloom in Versafine black, then clear heat embossed it to make it fabulous. Don't be afraid to die cut away part of your image - the results can be so bold! A little black matting framed it nicely.

Poke around my site and you'll see just how much I love making my own backgrounds. The matching leaves stamped in a slightly darker ink than the paper makes for the perfect backdrop. 

Thank you all so, so much for joining me this week and all of your kind comments. I know some of you are now followers and I'm so very happy to have you here! I hope you all keep in touch - I'm always up to inky, caffeinated trouble around here. ;)
Happy Crafting!
