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.

Simple Thank You Car with the Share What You Love Suite

I’m loving playing with the Share What You Love Suite of products which is currently available as three bundles. This card features products from the biggest bundle the Gotta Have It All Bundle which includes my newest favourite paper pack the Share What You Love Speciality Paper. Here’s a look at my card:

Share What You Love gotta have it all bundle

The beautiful paper doesn’t need much adding to it to make a great card so I just stamped a simple panel with the largest floral stamp from the Love What You Do stamp set in Rich Razzleberry. I added a little texture to the card with the new Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon which is so soft to touch.

Floral Friday: Wood Words and Lots to Love Card Set

These cards were inspired by a challenge set by my upline in our Facebook group, the challenge was to create something floral, a challenge I can definitely get onboard with. I pulled out the Lots of Love stamp set as this is one I bought back in October and its yet to see any ink.

I wanted to use the big bold Sending Lots of Love greeting as that’s one reason why I bought this set. As I wanted this greeting to be the focal point I did struggle a bit when coming up with a background idea. I then decided to pull out Wood Words and the beautiful floral background stamp in that set.

I stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink as I was planning to use the Stampin’ Blends on this card somewhere. I picked out the Dark Bermuda Bay and the Light Old Olive to highlight the flowers and some leaves on my stamped background. It has been so long since I used Bermuda Bay, it was right at the bottom of my inkpad pile. I’m not sure why I don’t use it more it such bright deep turquoise colour, I think it could be appearing again very soon.

I added the group of three flowers in the bottom left corner to give some more detail to the cards, notice they all have matching coloured gems for their centres? As Stampin’ blends are alcohol markers you can colour more than just card with them, so if you have the Metallic Enamel Shapes you can make them any colour you like.

So which is your favourite? I think the Bermuda Bay one is my favourite, there something quite striking about Bermuda Bay and Black as a colour combination.

Until next time,

Razzleberry Flowers Birthday Card using the Stampin’ Blends

For today’s card I wanted to do some colouring with the new Stampin’ Blends so pulled out the Color Me Happy stamp set which was also released last week. This stamp set has plenty of images to colour so is the perfect partner for the Blends.

It’s feels like ages since I made a card with any flowers on and as you know I love my flowers, so I pulled out the cute little flower stamp. I took a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock measuring 9.5cm x 13.3cm and randomly stamped the flower all over.  Continue reading “Razzleberry Flowers Birthday Card using the Stampin’ Blends”

Poinsettia Style Card with Painted Harvest

For today’s project I have another card using the Painted Harvest stamp set, I was inspired by looking at Poinsettia’s and was originally going to make a Christmas card, however when I added the Pear Pizzazz card base I felt it would be better as a birthday card.  Continue reading “Poinsettia Style Card with Painted Harvest”

Fresh Fig Florals from Painted Harvest

Painted Harvest was one of those sets that passed me by on my initial looks through the Autumn/Winter catalogue but once I started seeing projects made by other demonstrators and customers I realised it’s definitely one I needed to have a play with. I think I was put off by this set because I’m not a huge fan of yellow so sunflowers aren’t my favourite flower. After having a good play around with this set I can say that most combinations of colours work well, even the purples like on this card.

To make this card I took a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 10cm x 14cm and sponged over it with Crumb Cake ink to give an aged look. Next I took the first sunflower stamp, the one with less detail and stamped randomly over my card in Sweet Sugarplum. I then stamped over these with the more detailed sunflower in Fresh Fig. I’m not entirely sure its lined up properly but I love how these flowers look. For the centres and the dotted detail I used Soft Suede. I added a few random dots with old olive to fill in the gaps.

The sentiment label was created from the blank label in Label Me Pretty. I used an Old Olive marker to ink just around the edge, so I didn’t have the extra swirls. I used Fresh Fig to stamp the greeting and the Pretty Label punch to cut out.

I added three rows of the Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon for somewhere to ground the greetings label.

I also decorated the inside of the card with a couple more flowers. I really love how this card turned out, probably because its using my favourite colour Fresh Fig. I can’t wait to show you what else I’ve created with this set.
