Today I’m taking a break from the Christmas projects and sharing a simple birthday card with you. I’ve chosen to use Beautiful Bouquet as its one of my favourtie current floral stamp sets. Its a set which works well for building up floral bouquets with the matching dies but works equally well for creating simple backgrounds, which is what I’ve done here.
I simply stamped the carnation type flower in three diffferent colurs randomly across my white cardstock area. the colours I chose were Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Rococo Rose and a hint of Pear Pizzazz.
To finishe the card I added a length of the Gorgeous Grape Mine Striped Ribbon and a greeting stamped on the Story Label Punch.
Today I’ve used the Christmas Rose stamp set to create a wedding card. I’ve gone far away from the colours in the Christmastime Is Here Suite and focused on colours from my own wedding. I used Blackberry Bliss and Gold for my own wedding stationary, here I’ve added in Mint Macaron as a green for the foiliage.
I stamped the Chrsitmas Rose in Versamark and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I coloured the roses with both Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends and the leaves in a mix of Light Shaded Spruce and Dark Mint Macaron which gave them a two-tone effect which I really like. I used a few drops of Golden Glitz Delicata Reinker and a Blender pens to colour in the berries on the image.
I added some interest to the Mint Macaron background layer by stamping the inner berry stamp in a random pattern all over with Versmark ink. I then added a strip of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon across the middle before adhering onto the Gold Foil layer.
I stamped the greeting from Beautiful Bouquet onto the large frame from the Roses die set and added this to the card. I then added my rose diecut over the top. I finished the card off with some of the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots which I am loving and seem to be putting on every thing I make.
I’m loving all the products in the Christmastime Is Here Suite and actually how versatile they are as I don’t think this card looks Chrismassy at all do you?
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.
Today I’m sharing a card I made a while a go which has now been used as a wedding card for some friends. I wanted to create a card which was versatile for any occasion and in my book if flowers are involved you can’t really go wrong.
I love playing with this stamp set and matching dies as its so quick and easy to make a ton of flowers and build up a bouquet, especially if you use the multi-purpose adhesive sheets.
This bouquet was made up from flowers which were Flirty Flamingo, Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight with hints of Crumb Cake and a Soft Seafoam background. a combination which I think is love and actually did match the brides colour scheme.
Today for my Floral Friday feature I’m saying goodbye to the set Tranquil Tulips, this has been my favourite host stamp set from the 2017 – 2018 Annual catalogue as tulips are one of my favourite flowers. I’m still waiting for mine to appear in my garden but in the meantime I’ve enjoyed making these two cards:
This first card uses shades of Berry Burst and Old Olive. The first layer was done with second generation ink from the Berry Burst. A simple greeting from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and some background paper from the Color Theory DSP Stack finish off the front of this simple card.
On the inside I added another stamped tulip and a matching strip of paper just to add an extra touch.
For the blue version I used Dapper Denim and Old Olive and stamped on the crackle glaze paper. To add some extra dimension to this card I stamped the second layer of the tulip petals on a separate piece of paper and layered them up with Dimensional’s. The greeting and label image on this card come from the Rose Wonder stamp set another of my favourites which is retiring.
Hope you enjoyed todays project.
