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.

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.
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”
This week’s Floral Friday card features the Inside the Lines dsp again, I just love colouring with this paper and suggest you get your hands on some before the end of Sale-A-Bration. This time I took Poppies as my inspiration and made a Sympathy card. Continue reading “Floral Friday – Insides the Lines- Thoughtful Poppy Card”
This years Spring/Summer and Sale-A-Bration catalogue have introduced a couple of products for those interested in adult colouring, the watercolour pencils and the Inside the Line dsp. As someone who finds colouring very therapeutic and has a very large collection of the colouring books I couldn’t wait to test out these two new products. Here’s the card I came up with using a Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive colour scheme.
I loved making this card and love how it turned out even more and most of all I love just how simple it was to make. Just a little colouring and cutting of the flowers and a greeting stamped on one of the banners from the Banner Framelits set. I love how adding a little bit of Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Marker to the centre of the flowers has just given them a lift and finished off the card.

Today its the birthday of one of my best friends and to celebrate I made her this card, I hope she has received it before she reads this. I chose to use the new Oh So Succulent bundle from the new Spring/Summer catalogue. The stamps and dies have a mixture of combinations which can be used to make flowers and other succulent plants along with some greetings in two lovely fonts.
I stuck to a colour combination of Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, Calypso Coral with a hint of Tip Top Taupe to match with the co-ordinating Succulent Garden dsp. Calypso Coral is not one of my favourite colours as I’m just not an orange/peach kind of girl but in small doses I think it looks okay. Here is a close up of the flowers
I’ve added some enamel shapes just to finish the card off and keep it fairly flat for posting. I’m looking forward to playing some more with this versatile new set.
Card base: A4 sheets cut at 10.5cm and folded in half.
DSP Layer: 10.1cm x 14.4 cm
Blooms and Wishes is probably my most favourite stamp set from the current Annual catalogue, I just love the slightly water-coloured look it gives to the flowers, making for some beautiful cards. This card is my October customer thank you card, so if you shopped with me last month one of these will be in the post to you.
It was a very simple card to make just a couple of layers and some stamping but I think the end result is beautiful. I chose a colour scheme of Island Indigo, Mint Macaron and Pool Party and by stamping off some of these colours I ended up with a variety of shades on the card, which adds to the water-coloured effect.
The greetings panel matts were created from the Tags and Labels Framelits and I finished the card off with a little Mint Macaron Mini Striped Ribbon and a few pearls.
I really love this card and hope my customers do too. If you would like your own handmade card from me next month all you have to do is place an order with me this month, here is the link to my online shop.
