LOVE BLOSSOMS

When the flowers bloom – love blossoms!  That is what was on my mind while checking out our flower garden!  So, why not create a card with the Forever Blossoms stamp set?

There’s so new things on this card too!  I received my pre-order for the Aug – Dec. Mini Catalogue and fell in love with the Gilded Autumn Specialty designer paper so just had to use a piece for this card!  Which led me to going with a gold theme!  Love it!

Here’s the product list for you – just remember that the designer paper and the new punch will not be available until tomorrow, Aug. 4th!

TODAY IS YOUR DAY

Friday is here and if you’re celebrating, today is all about you!  I haven’t used the Free As A Bird(149468) stamp set in a while so pulled it out for this card!

I used one of the patterns in the Forever Gold Laser-cut specialty paper and it is really hard to get a good picture of it.  So, I moved it to another room with lots of sunlight!

This layout comes from The Paper Players challenge for this week and the gold piece worked perfectly for this sketch.

A special greeting was called for, so I added one from the Many Mates stamp set(152633).  It has many great sentiments, so make sure to check it out.

Here’s the full list of products used.

JUST SAYING HELLO

Saying hello to you today with a little golden touch!  This card was created using the Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper(152493).

There are so many beautiful pieces in this package it was hard to choose which one to use for this card!  I accented it with that lovely greeting from the Tasteful Touches stamp set!  The flowers are from the same set and I love them stamped with the Seaside Spray ink.

GET BETTER SOON

When I first saw the Back on Your Feet stamp set(149385), I just had to have it.  The oh-so-cute critters make sending get better soon greetings are the best for putting a smile on the recipient’s face!

Awww, poor guy!  I had a ton of fun with this card and, in my defence, the greeting is a little off-kilter because that poor little sloth doesn’t feel too well.

I used a few Stampin’ Blends to colour as well as the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker for the bandage!

The layout from CAS(E) this sketch was the starting point and I added a little help from the Toile Christmas stamp set and matching dies for the “branch”.

Here’s the list of products used.

SUNNY BIRTHDAY WISHES

We have lots of sun here and I sure hope that it sticks around for a long while!  The sunflowers on this card reflect these sunny days!

I keep going to this Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle(154065) because it just brings a smile to my face!  Is there anything more sunny and happy than a sunflower?

I also played around with the Well Written Dies(151816) for the birthday greeting.  Check them out, there are lots of choices for greetings along with a few cute images too!

FABULOUS FLOWERS

Happy Monday to you!  I’m starting the week off with some fabulous flowers that are very bright and cheerful!

Yep, they’re bright alright!  I got this inspiration from our flower garden this weekend.  With all of the rain we’ve been getting, not only did the flowers grow but the weeds loved it too!  Once they were taken care of, I was able to see all of my fabulous flowers!

I used the Poppy Moments dies((151594) and added that fabulous greeting from the Many Mates stamp set(152633).  The variegated colour on the greeting was a happy accident achieved by carefully placing the stamp on an angle and easing off on the pressure as it was stamped.  It adds just the right touch!

YES, I DID!

Yes, I did!  I’m posting the very first Christmas card of 2020 from my stamp room!

The Toile Christmas stamp set(150469) made it into the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue, so why not get started early?  Especially since this has been a “topsy-turvy” year, who says one can’t think of Christmas in the month of July?!

Did you also notice the Toile Tidings designer paper?  It was carried over to the August-December Mini Catalogue so I pulled out a piece for this card as well.

The card layout is simple to show off that beautiful cardinal and to follow along with the new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

Here’s the list of products for you.

COOKIES, COOKIES, YUM

Hello and welcome to my blog!  I have been away for a short break but am back and enjoying being back in the stamping zone!

Today’s card is all about celebrating Cookies!

I used the oh-so-cute Nothing’s Better Than Bundle(154061) for this and had a ton of fun creating!  Our weather had been very wet so eating a cookie while stamping helped a lot!

The Paper Players posted this Clean-and-Simple Celebrate challenge so I’m playing along by celebrating cookies!  Why Not for goodness sake, they’re delicious!

JUST ONE POPPY

Hi and welcome!  Today’s poppy card comes from a stamping tutorial from Andrea Walford.

I was so very taken with the card that Andrea did and the technique that I just had to try it for myself.  Since I don’t have the Field of Flowers stamp set, I used Painted Poppies(151599) with a little help from Grace’s Garden and Itty Bitty Greetings.

The background mat was coloured with Pool Party ink and a Sponge Brayer to give the ombre effect and then embossed with the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder.

The main image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends.  I played around with the White Craft ink for the “a little hello” greeting.  It is there just very light which means that I have to add more ink to the pad next time!

Here’s the list of products used.
