Floral Friday: Berry Burst Flowers from Nature’s Root Framelits

For today’s flowery themed post  I’m going to share with you some flowers I’ve made from the spikey leafed die in the Nature’s Root Framelits. I’m not sure if anyone else sees flowers when they look at that die but I did and after a little play I came up with these cute little flowers, that are quite simple to make.

berry burst flower steps

  1. You will need to cut four flowers in your desired colour for each flower you plan to make, I chose Berry Burst. You will also need to punch a circle from the 1/2″ circle punch, I chose Powder Pink.
  2. Scrunch up each of your leaves so your petals have more texture.
  3. Take a Stampin’ Dimensional as the centre of your flower and stick on your first petal. I would recommend using the Silicone Craft Sheet for this but mine’s gone walk about…if you find it please send it back 😉
  4. Layer all four petals around the dimensional and adhere using Mini Glue Dots, the new Take Your Pick tool was perfect for this. Finish the flower centres with the punched circle and a Clear Faceted Gem.

Here’s an example of a finished card to show you how lovely these flowers look when used, a few stamped leaves and you have a completed project.

Floral Friday: Goodbye Tranquil Tulips

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:

berry burst tranquil tulips

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.

dapper denim tranquil tulips

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.

Bright and Cheery Birthday Card with Picture Perfect Birthday

For today’s card I used probably the brightest suite of products which are currently in the catalogue.  I think you can’t really go wrong with these products and any card made using them will brighten the recipients day. Here’s what I came up with:

Lemon Linme twist Happiest of birthdays to you

I love the combination of Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst together and think this card could work for males or females as its not overly feminine. The party blower stamps are really cleverly designed as the images all interlock making stamping a straight image super simple.

Happy Tomorrows Floral Card

Happy Sunday everyone, hope your having a lovely relaxing day, we have some glorious sunshine here in Yorkshire today so hoping to get outside soon.

Berry Burst Blossoms

This week I’m featuring cards with products in the World Card Making Day Sale and the DSP buy 3, get 1 sale. Today I’m using the Colorful Seasons stamp set and Color Theory DSP stack, which I combined with a combination of Pool Party, Berry Burst and a hint of Early Expresso.

First I took Berry Burst cardstock and cut a matt layer measuring 14cm x 10cm and then took the Color Theory DSP stack and then chose the Berry Burst White crackle paper and cut this to 13.5cm x 9.5cm.

I stuck a length of Pool Party Shimmery Ribbon across the middle of the Berry Burst crackle paper and then adhered this sheet to the Berry Burst cardstock layer. I fixed these onto a Pool Party card base measuring 14.5cm x 21cm, scored and folded at 10.5cm.

On a piece of Whisper white cardstock measuring 9cm x 7.5cm stamp the branch in Early Expresso and the greeting in Berry Burst. On a scrap piece of paper stamp five flowers in Berry Burst and add the stamens in Early Expresso. I fussy cut these out as I’ve lost my Seasonal Layers Thinlits, but if you have the dies use them.

I matted my stamped layer onto a piece of Berry Burst measuring 9.5cm x 8cm and then adhered this to the left hand side of my card. Add the cut flowers to the branch using Stampin’ Dimensional’s. To finish the card off add three of the Berry Burst Glitter Dots in various sizes to the top right hand side.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project and join me tomorrow for another project inspired by the sale items.

Pootles July Birthday Blog Hop

21b818a3-20b1-40d6-adec-54de4112d5c9

Today I’m taking part in the Pootles Team Birthday Blog Hop for birthdays in July, mine is on the 25th and for this hop I decided to use my favourite products to create a birthday card for myself…just in case hubby forgets!

So here is my card

pootlesbirthdaybloghop

Can you guess how old I am? For this card I used my very favourite stamp set Blooms & Wishes and four of the new In-Colours: Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide. I used all three of the large flowers and a couple of the smaller ones and stamped them in a random pattern all over my card. I added some leaves in Tranquil Tide and to fill in all the little gaps I used the small dotted stamped from Birthday blooms in Powder Pink.

I die cut the Happy Birthday Thinlit in Copper Foil and cut it in half to create my greeting. I also cut out the numbers 3 and 4 from the Large Number Thinlits set. I made a middle strip to mount the greeting on with Powder Pink.

I cut out the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits in Powder Pink and the largest circle in Whisper White. I then took the “TH” stamp from Number of Years and embossed it in copper a the edge of the circle.

To finish the card I mounted the numbers on my circle and added it to the card.

Bee Unique Card for #TGIFC115

Hi Everyone,

This week’s challenge for TGIF Challenges was to use Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide, three colours which I love together. I’ve had this Bee Unique card idea in my head for a while and decided these bright colours would work perfectly with the black be background I wanted to stamp.

After I had stamped out my black bee background it looked a little harsh against my Berry Burst matt and Tranquil Tide card base so I added a layer of vellum over the top.

I then took the Labeller Alphabet stamp set and carefully stamped out BEE Unique to be my greeting.

To finish the card I cut various shape from the May Flowers, Layering Circles and Detailed Dragonflies Thinlits sets, including a Berry Burst bee as a focal point.

To add a little more Lemon Lime Twist and to hold the vellum in place I added a striped punched from the Ticket Tear punch.
