Congrats Wreath made from Blended Seasons Bundle

For today’s project I pulled out the Stitched seasons Framelits and had a play cutting out the various shapes. To make the wreath I cut out eight of the leaves in Mint Macaron and five of the small flowers in Blushing Bride. I cut the leaves off the flower dies as I didn’t want pink leaves, not really sure why the flower isn’t a separate die.

To create the background I took some Blushing bride cardstock and stamped the leaves stamp randomly all over in Blushing Bride to give a tone-on-tone look which wasn’t going to detract attention away from my wreath.

To make the wreath a cut a whisper white circle from the 6cm diameter Layering Circles dies and glued onto my card. I cut the berries section off all my leaves and then positioned them all round the circle, overlapping in some areas.

I then added the Congrats banner which was stamped  from the Banner for You stamp set and cut from the Bunch of Banners Framelits. I fixed the banner on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added the flowers around the wreath, tucking a couple under the banner. I added some Rhinestones to the flower centres as a final touch.

You’re Inspiring Daffodil Card

Today’s card is much more suited to a spring day and not the middle of summer but I thought I’d share anyway. I coloured the daffodil image in ages ago, probably in the spring and I thought it was time it made its way onto a card. When I saw the new 6×6″ Designer Series Paper Stacks in the new colour collections I knew I had the perfect background.

I’ve left this card with no greeting as nothing seemed to fit how I wanted it too and to be honest sometimes its nice to have some blank cards ready to just send a quick not to someone.

Hope you like my simple project today.

Floral Friday: Pastel Bouquet with Beautiful Bouquet

Today I’m sharing a card I made a while a go which has now been used as a wedding card for some friends. I wanted to create a card which was versatile for any occasion and in my book if flowers are involved you can’t really go wrong.

I love playing with this stamp set and matching dies as its so quick and easy to make a ton of flowers and build up a bouquet, especially if you use the multi-purpose adhesive sheets.

This bouquet was made up from flowers which were Flirty Flamingo, Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight with hints of Crumb Cake and a Soft Seafoam background. a combination which I think is love and actually did match the brides colour scheme.

Rich Razzleberry Floral Friendship Card with Blended Seasons

If you’ve followed my blog for a while it will be no surprise to you that the first image I wanted to stamp with out of the new Blended seasons stamp set was that gorgeous large floral image. Anyone know what flower it is because I don’t recognise it?

I chose a classic colour combination of Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive as I wanted to use the Stampin’ Blends and I haven’t order the new colours yet (they’re on their way).

Adding a layer of Light Pool Party all around the stamped image really helps it to pop off the page. I added a few pearls to the centres of the flowers to add some subtle extra detail.

I decorated the inside of the card with an extra coloured flower but kept it sentiment free so I can write my own message.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this first look at the Blended Seasons stamp set, pop back soon for more ideas with this set.

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.

ff wood words lots of love berumda bay

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,

Happy Crafting
