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.

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.

Feminine Flowers with Oh So Eclectic

Today I’ve gone for a very feminine look with the Oh So Eclectic stamp set so I pulled out Wild Wasabi and Blushing Bride. Wild Wasabi is a colour I haven’t used in so long but its a lovely colour, one probably more suited for spring cards so works well with this card.  Continue reading “Feminine Flowers with Oh So Eclectic”

Daisy Delight 3 x 3 Notecard Set

Today I’ve made a set of six 3″ x 3″ notecards featuring the Daisy Delight set and the Wood Words set, both of these sets are currently 15% off in the World Card Making Day Sale.  The notecards are perfectly sized to coordinate with the mini envelopes and mini pizza boxes in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

First I took Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Old Olive and made card bases measuring 3″ x  6″, scored at 3″. I made two of each colour. Next I took the Delightful Daisy DSP paper and cut matching squares measuring 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″, after inking around the edges in Daffodil Delight I adhered then to the front of my cards with Fast Fuse adhesive.  Continue reading “Daisy Delight 3 x 3 Notecard Set”

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.

Floral Friday: Sealed With Love Friendship Cards

Initially when I planned this focus week I wasn’t going to write my Floral Friday post as I wasn’t sure if it would work, but surprisingly these floral themed cards were just screaming at me to be made. Which I guess shows just how versatile Stampin’ Up! stamp sets really can be. Continue reading “Floral Friday: Sealed With Love Friendship Cards”
