Today I’m sharing a quick and simple card made with the Butterfly Wishes stamp set, which is sadly on the retirement list. This is a recent purchase for me but I’m loving the soft butterfly images and think they work great with pastel shades.
I’ve used Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede for this card which is one of my favourite colour combinations. I’ve coloured the branch image with Stampin’ Markers so I can have all three colours on one stamp, this also adds to the soft pastel look I was going for.
I’ve added a little Mint Macaron piece of designer paper to the background just ground my image.
It’s Friday so it’s time for my weekly dose of floral stamping, today I’ve pulled out the Pop of Petals stamp set which hasn’t seen much ink recently. For today’s project I’ve used Petal Pink, Old Olive and Terracotta Tile, a colour I’ve not used much.
To create the flowers I pulled out my Stampin’ Markers in Petal Pink and Terracotta Tile. I coloured the centre of stamp with Petal Pink and the outer petals with Terracotta Tile to give a lovely two-tone flower when stamped. I stamped and punched out three of these. I then stamped and cut out six of the rose type leaves in Old Olive.
I ran the Whisper White layer through the Subtle Embossing Folder to add some texture, sadly this doesn’t show up on my photos. I mounted this on a background layer of Terracotta Tile and ran a strip of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon across the middle.
I stamped my sentiment from the Stitched All Around stamp set onto a Whisper White die cut from the stitched Labels Dies. I then arranged the flowers around the sentiment and added the leaves. For a final finishing touch I added Frosted Epoxy Droplets, coloured in Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends, to the centre of each flower.
Have you pulled out the Pop of Petals stamp set recently, I’d love to know what you made.
Have you checked out the Hostess sets in the Autumn/Winter catalogue yet, I feel these often get overlooked as they are right at the back of the catalogue. This year we have two lovely offerings, my favourite being Hung With Care which features a collection of gorgeous stockings ready to hang up and wait for Santa to fill with goodies. If you want this set then simply place an order of £150.00 or more and choose this as part of your Stampin’ Rewards.
I’ve kept today’s card fairly simple so you can see just how cute these little stockings are. I coloured them with our Stampin’ Markers in the colours Merry Merlot, Shaded Spruce and Crumb Cake and then fussy cut them out.
I added a little sparkle to the card with two thin strips of the Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper from the Joyous Noel Suite and guess what…no glitter fell off when making this card!
Today I’m sharing another Christmas card made with the Blended Seasons Bundle of products. This time I used the holly stamp to create a back ground for my card and then I coloured it with Poppy Parade and Garden Green Stampin’ markers.
The gold embossed sentiment comes from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, which again I have added to my card using the gorgeous stitched frames from the Stitched Seasons die set. I will really miss these next month when they’re no longer available, so if you’re thinking about making purchase I would hurry before they sell out.
I added the bow die cut and a strip of Poppy Parade cardstock to make the card look like it was a Christmas present.
A little holly and a sentiment finish off the inside. Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project.
