Daffodil Tulips Card

Daffodil coloured Tulips, well why not! I don’t use yellow that much as I’m more of a pink/purple girl so today I used Daffodil Delight as my starting point and paired it with Granny Apple Green.

I’m loving seeing the daffodils in my garden but as we dont currently have any daffodil images I’m using Timeless Tulips.

I’ve simply stamped the tulip heads in Daffodil Delight, filling in the gaps with second generation stamping and then added some leaves and stems in Granny Apple Green. I’ve then added some punched out Tulips to add a little dimension.

I’ve added a length of Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon across the card to add my greeting label, I’m sad this ribbon is leaving us as its been one of my favourites ffrom this catalogue.

A simple card but think its sure to brighten someones day.

Rococo Rose Tasteful Touches Flower Card

Rococo Rose cardstock may have already sold out but Fliry Flamingo could be a good alternative if you want to case this card. I’ve used the Tasteful Touches stamp set and die set and gone for a vintage type card today.

The background paper come from the In Good Taste DSP pack and this is one of my favourite sheets in the pack as I love the look of this woven cotton fabric effect, perfect for that vintage feel.

I’ve stamped the flower twice to layer it up and give a 3D effect. I’ve brushed over it with Wink of Steller to give the flower a lovely glittery touch.

I’ve added a few stamped Pear Pizzazz springs to the background paper to add some grounding to my flower and greeting.

Free As A Bird Oval Card

Sadly the Layering Ovals dies have now sold out here in Europe but I couldn’t let them go into my craft closet with out one final outing. I’ve paired the with the Free As A Bird stamp set which is carrying over to the next catalogue. I really like the delicate images in this set, these cute little birds were just crying out to be coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

I’ve coloured the little birds with a mix of Petal Pink and So Saffron to give a blended peachy tone, which matches the Champagne Rhinestones which I’ve used to embellish the card. The branch is Soft Suede and the leaves Just Jade.

I’ve used Blackberry Bliss as an accent colour in the flowers in the stamped inmage and also for the stamped flowers on the designer paper background.

As a final touch I added a length of the Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon from the Mini Catalogue

I love the soft feminine feel of this card and hope its not another year before Free As A Bird sees some ink.

Rainbow Blossoms Card

This card takes just a couple of minutes to make but I think it still produces quite an impact with all that glitter. All the flowers come from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper punched out with the Small Bloom Punch. I’ve just selected areas where I can get a full colour for eacg flower.

The greeting is from Happiest of birthdays, which I’ve just stamped in the centre in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I then arrange my glimmer blossoms all around the greeting.

I’ve used an Opalescent Round in the centre of each flower to add even more bling to the card.

This is the perfect card to create when you have one of those unexpected birthday party invites dropped on you unexpectedly, its quick simple and looks great.

So sad the Small Bloom Punch is leaving.

Thank You Card with Basket of Blooms

Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Magenta Madness is such a bright and cheerful combination, perfect to brighten up the dull day here in Yorkshire.

It’s easy to create the flowers with the Small Bloom Punch, simply stamp and punch and then finish off in the centre with an Enamel Dot.

The greeting from So Sentimental was stamped in Coastal Cabana on a die cut from the Stitched So Sweetly die collection. The card was finished with a length of ribbon in Coastal Cabana from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack.
