Pretty Peacock Leaf Bouquet Card

I love the Come to Gather Suite of products as soon as I saw them its definitely my favourite Autumn themed suite for many years, mainly because the papers include Pretty Peacock. I think this is a bold choice for an autumnal themed collection but it really works with the Cajun Crze, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron.

I knew as soon as I got these product home I’d create a card which featured Pretty Peacock Foil die cut leaves and these turned out even more gorgeous than I expected. To create some more interest I cut some more leaves in Pretty Peacock cardstock. A little tip I’ve picked up from other demonstrators if you spray the card before you die cut the leaves you will get a two-tone effect, no idea why this work but Ilove them.

For some additional texture to my leafy arrangement I added some of the foiliage from the Frosted Frames dies in Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake. These are all secrured using glue dots as I didn’t want to move my leaves after I’d got the arrangement how I like.

The “Wishing You Well” greeting makes this card suitable for many occasions or to simply just send to someone to say “Hi” which is exactly what I’m going to do as this week is World Card Sending week. Why don’t you join in and send some random cards yourself.

A Little Lace Card Duo

Taking a break from the Christmas projects today I’m sharing a pair of cards made from the A Little Lace stamp set. I chose to keep these cards fairly simple with just Rococo Rose or Pretty Peacock with a tiny hint of Crumb Cake on the ribbon.

Rococo Rose A Little Lace Card

I used the Basket Weave 3D embossing folder to give the background some subtle texture and used the Stitched Rentangle and stitched Shape die sets for matts for the main floral image and for my sentiment. A little length of the Scalloped Linen Ribbon adds some more texture and a pop of colour from the Crumb Cake.

As a final touch to each card I added some of the 2019-2021 In Colour Facet Dots to the centres of each flower.

Hope you like todays project and pop back soon

Wild Rococo Rose Friendship Card

Don’t you just love this gorgeous rose image, it comes from the stamp set To A Wild Rose and was designed by Mary Ellen Byler who is one of Stampin’ Up! Million dollar sales acheivers, I think she’s done a fantastic job with this set.

This stamp set is a two-step stamp set meaning you build up various stamping layers to create one image, you may only end up with one flower and leaf combination but the design possibilities with the images are endless.

Today I’ve gone very simple and used just one flower as my focal point with a couple of leaves to add some colour contrast.

I chose a colour scheme of Rococo Rose and Old Olive which match the roses in my own garden. By stamping off the Rococo Rose on some scrap paper the bottom layer of the rose is lighter, which adds some lovely dimension.

I’ve embellished the centre of the rose with a few pearls just to give some additional interest to the card.

To finish the card the greeting was stamped on a whisper white stitched rectangle which I think lifts the rose from the background paper from the Woven Threads DSP.

What’s your favourite colour combination for roses, I’d love to know?

Beautiful Bouquet Wedding Card

Today I’m sharing a card I made for my friends wedding on saturday. I chose the Beautiful Bouquet stamp sets are its one of my favourites and I don’t think you can make a bad card with it. I chose a colour scheme of Blushing bride, Rococo Rose and Mint Macaron. I love how good Rococo Rose and Blushing Bride look together, perfect partners in my opinion.

I stamped my greeting on the large detailed frame from the Stitched Labels Dies. I then build up my bouquet at the left hand side.  I added some of the Gold Metallic pearls to the centres of the flowers, I can’t seem to put these down at the moment.

For the card base I used one of the Bird Ballard Laser Cut Cards as a base with a layer of Blushing Bride on the inside. I love this card and hope my friend and her new husband do too.

Floral Friday: Inspiring Iris

For today’s card I’ve used Inspiring Iris again, I just love this stamp set, it reminds me of one of my old favourites Blooms & Wishes with the watercoloured flower effect. The end card today looked nothing like how it started in my head and my desk looks like a bomb has exploded as I’ve fussy cut flowers and die cuts strewn all over. but after considerably time stamping and cutting the end result is quite simple and I love it.

A couple of the stamped rose type flowers and a greeting and you have a gorgeous card. I’ve added a few Gold Metallic Pearls to the flowers centres just to add a little bling.

Rococo Rose I think is my new favourite colour (yes this does change on a weekly basis) but I loving how perfect it pairs up with Mint Macaron and Crumb two of my other favourites!

Blackberry Bliss Inspiring Iris

I’m loving all the floral stamps sets in the new catalogue and Inspiring Iris is one of my favourites. I love Irises but have sadly never managed to grow any in my garden..yet, so for the time being I can now happily create as many as I like.

For this card I went for a simple colour scheme of Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive, mostly so I could use some of the gorgeous Noble Peacock Speciality DSP which is covered in foil accents and its stunning.

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the three different sections of the Iris and although it’s not lined up perefectly (not sure if its meant too or not) I love it as it adds to that floaty floral feel. To finish the card I added some Blackberry Bliss twine from the Nature’s Twine pack and a little bow.

A gorgeous card for any occassion, I can see myself using this stamp set alot in the coming weeks.
