Rococo Rose cardstock may have already sold out but Fliry Flamingo could be a good alternative if you want to case this card. I’ve used the Tasteful Touches stamp set and die set and gone for a vintage type card today.
The background paper come from the In Good Taste DSP pack and this is one of my favourite sheets in the pack as I love the look of this woven cotton fabric effect, perfect for that vintage feel.
I’ve stamped the flower twice to layer it up and give a 3D effect. I’ve brushed over it with Wink of Steller to give the flower a lovely glittery touch.
I’ve added a few stamped Pear Pizzazz springs to the background paper to add some grounding to my flower and greeting.
Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Magenta Madness is such a bright and cheerful combination, perfect to brighten up the dull day here in Yorkshire.
It’s easy to create the flowers with the Small Bloom Punch, simply stamp and punch and then finish off in the centre with an Enamel Dot.
The greeting from So Sentimental was stamped in Coastal Cabana on a die cut from the Stitched So Sweetly die collection. The card was finished with a length of ribbon in Coastal Cabana from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack.
Today I’m sharing a card which focuses on the Stampin’ Blends, I love these pens so much as they’re easy to blend even when your mixing colours. I’ve used them here to colour in the sunflower bouquet from the Jar of Flowers stamp set.
The sunflowers were coloured with a mix of So Saffron and Cinnamon Cider and the thistle leaves at the back were a mix of Smokey Slate and Just for that lovely silvery effect these leaves had. The thistle head itself was coloured with Dark Misty Moonlight mixed with Light Smokey Slate with a layer of Purple Posy over the top to give some lovely tonal colour.
My image was stamped onto a frame cut from the Ornate Layers die collection, I was worried this die cut would be too big for my card but its fits perfectly. The background paper comes from the Flowers For Every Season DSP Pack which has some great floral and neutral patterns.
To finish off the card I add a strip of the Just Jade Ribbon and a greeting from the Lots to Celebrate stamp set. This stamp set is the perfect companion to Jar of Flowers as it adds some sentiments and extra elemnts to use with the jars.
I love stamp sets that have little flowers and leaves so you can create quick and simple backgrounds just by randomly stamping. Thats one reason the Framed For You stamp set has been one of my first cgoices from the new catalogue, alongside the floral images there are some great sentiments and that great frame image which works perfectly with our Layering Squares Dies.
For this card I used a bold colour combination of Gorgeous Grape, Just Jade, Pool Party and Cinnamon Cider and I love how these colours look together.
I love how this turned out and think its a great design you could mass produce easily to build your card stash, its also one where you could change up the colours easily.
I love Peonies, they are one of my favourite flowers and this year after waiting four years mine in my garden finally bloomed and wow was it a beauty. So today’s card was inspired by my garden flowers of pink peonies and lilac buddleia.
I’ve used the Beautiful Friendship which is full of gorgeous floral images which all work well together so grab your inkpads and have a play. For this card I used Rococo Rose, Pear Pizzazz and Highland Heather on a card base of Balmy Blue and I love the result.
Hopefully I wont have to wait for four more years for some peony blossoms!
