Petal Pink Lasting Love Card

Today I’m sharing the love with this card made from the Last A Lifetime Bundle. This is a bundle themed around love and weddings and features some gorgeous dies. Today I’ve chosen to focus on the floral images in the stamp set and their matching dies.

For my card background I chose a sheet of petel pink designer paper which has Champagne foiling on from the Parisian Blossoms collection, I love this design for backgrounds.

I stamped my greeting onto the second largest die from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. To add some more of the champagne colour to my project I used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and stamped the edges of my nested Label with the large floral die from the stamp set, this adds a nice subtle shimmer to the greeting panal and ties it togther with the background.

To finish the card I added two of the large stamped floral springs which have been stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured with Petal Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. As a finishing touch I added coloured the berries on the floral springs with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint using a Blender Pen to apply the paint to my project.

This card would make a lovely wedding or anniversary card or just to let someone know you love them whatever time of year.

Wonderful Romance Anniversary Card

After making an Anniversary card with the To Have and To Hold stamp set I decided to make a few more using other sets, so today I’m sharing this card made with the Wonderful Romance bundle.

This is part of the Floral Romance Suite which is perfect for all theings romanctic and wedding themed. There are some gorgeous embellishments in this suite but sadly they didn’t make it onto this card but look out for them on a project soon.

I used Lovely Lipstick and Soft Sea Foam as a colour scheme to show these products look gorgeous in any combination, not just those suggested in the suite.

To start the card I stamped and embossed three of the floral bunches on vellum. I then coloured them on the verse side using a mixute of Mossy Meadow with hints of Pineapple Punch for the leaves and Lovely Lipstick and Petal Pink on the flowers.

I used one full bunch of flowers for one side of my card and sections of the other two images I’d stamped on the other side so I ended up with more of the larger flowers. I love that you can cut the images up to create your own arrangements, don’t be afraid to experiment as thats part of the fun

I finished the card off with some Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots in the centres of the flowers which really bring out the Lovely Lipstick.

I love how versatile this bundle is and think you should definielty consider it for your collection before its gone.

Congratulations Card with Little Elephant

Today I’ve managed to make a card with no tools and just one stamp set, I didn’t even use the matching punch with this set. There’s plenty of cute stamps in the Little Elephant stamp set to make any kind of card, today I’m making an anniversary card for my brother and sister-in-law.

I’ve added some of the Twinkle Twinkle DSP to the card as a background but the rest is all ink. I love Stampin’ Up! inks, they work beautifully every time and perfectly match the paper we carry so making a project like this takes literally minutes.

Hope they both like the card!

Gold Graceful Garden

Happy World Card Making Day! Hope you’re all enjoying a little crafting today. For today’s card I chose to feature Graceful Garden, which has 15% off until Monday. As you know I love my floral sets and I particularly adore the rose images in this set, as soon as I get more watercolour paper I’m going to be colouring that gorgeous big rose. Today I chose to focus on the small rose image and use it more of an accent for the card.

The combination of Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Gold give this card a very luxurious feel and make it perfect to give as an anniversary card or birthday card for that special someone.

I’ve added the Gold Metallic edged ribbon behind my circle to soften the card and add a little bit of texture.

Inside I’ve repeated the same rose image on the bottom right corner. I really love how this card turned out and think its my favourite so far from this week.

Join me tomorrow for another project using the 15% stamp sets.

Happy 10th Anniversary Card

This year one of my best friends is celebrating her 10th wedding anniversary so I wanted to make her a special card, the Milestone Moments stamps from the Spring/Summer Catalogue is perfect for this kind of occasion.

I chose Pink Pirouette for the card base and embossed the front half of the card using the beautiful Falling Petals Textured Impressing Embossing Folder, don’t the petals look like tiny little love hearts?

To create a focal point for the card I took one of the Lace Doilies from the Spring/Summer catalogue, I love these because one side is Very Vanilla and the other side is Whisper White which makes them super versatile. I chose the Very Vanilla side to complement the Satin Ribbon that I used for the bow.

I die cut a circle from the Layering Circles Framelits and the Stitched Shape Framelits in Very Vanilla and Pink Pirouette. The greeting taken from the Milestone Moments stamp set was stamped in Soft Suede.

I think this is lovely simple card and I hope my friend and her husband like it.
