SUNSHINE AND ROSES

It may be very cold up here in northeastern BC, but when the sun shines, it lights up the mood!  So, it also inspired me to pull out the To A Wild Rose Bundle and get creating.

I decided to play around with our Pigment Sprinkles and love the way the different colours add highlights to those pretty roses.  It just seemed appropriate to give them a white edge, so out came the Versamark and White Emboss Powder.  TIP:  I used the Heat Tool to dry the paper after the sprinkles making it much easier to add the heat embossing!

The new Freshly Made Sketches layout came into play here with a piece of the Peaceful Poppies DSP and a small side plate to cut the rounded edge.

Here’s the list of products used.

POPPIES ABOUND

Let’s go back to the Peaceful Poppies Suite today!  This is such a beautiful suite with it’s bright colours and beautiful poppy flowers!

With this really cold weather we’ve been experiencing, I thought it best to add some brightly coloured poppies to this card.  I pulled up the new sketch layout from CAS(E) this sketch and got to work!  I didn’t follow the sketch exactly as shown, but think that the addition of the circles takes the place of the square shape shown on the sketch.

The Peaceful Moments stamp set is just full of beautiful sentiments and is a great addition to this suite.

Here’s the list of products used.

TRY A LITTLE SUNSHINE

Hi, I’m back with the Honey Bee bundle again!  Because a little bee-enfused sunshine and happiness seems like a good way to end this week!

There are so many beautiful designs in the Golden Honey Specialty designer paper and they just have to be shown off!  I matched up the honeycomb design with a little piece done in Pineapple Punch behind the hive.  Just drag the ink pad across a piece of whisper white cardstock and the die does the rest!  The flowers were coloured “direct to stamp” with Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Markers.

Here’s the full list of products used.

THIS BIRTHDAY IS NOT FOR THE BIRDS

Hello there and welcome!  I’ve been quiet lately and focussing on Christmas with my family!  I did finally have some time to stamp and created this pretty bird infused birthday card.

There’s always a need for birthday cards in our family and this one has a nice touch of spring to help add a little lightness to our winter.

I used a Sale-A-Bration set, Happy Birthday to You for the greeting because I love the font!

Here’s the list of products used.  Just a note – the Sale-A-Bration set will not be available until January 3, 2020!

Do you stay up to welcome in the New Year?  It’s been a few years that my husband and I have done that so we’re going to try this year.  It’s the start of a new decade so why not!

Have a great day and Happy stamping to you!

BLOSSOMS FOREVER

It must be something about all of the snow we have, because I’ve been focussing on blossoms this week.  So, today’s card features the new Forever Blossoms stamp set with just a hint of the matching designer paper.

Don’t they remind you of cherry blossoms in the spring?  This is a beautiful stamp set that lends itself well to weddings and anniversaries.  I took a little artistic license with the greeting though, and did some masking to get just the words I wanted for this card.

Did I mention the matching Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder?  I used it for the background mat – it’s is so very pretty!  I think you’re going to love this set and all of it’s matching accessories!

Here’s the list of products used.

RED ROSES FOR A DECEMBER BIRTHDAY

I’ve been having a lot of fun creating with new stamp sets and accessories from the Spring Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogues!

Today’s card with the cake covered in Red Roses is especially pretty!

This is the Happy Birthday to You set that’s a FREE choice ($60 purchase) from page 8 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  It’s perfect for using the Stampin’ Blends!  I chose red to colour those lovely flowers as this card is for my daughter and she loves red!

The background mat showcases the Country Floral 3D embossing folder which works perfectly with the rose theme.

SAY HELLO TO TIMELESS TULIPS

I’m playing with a new stamp set bundle today from the 2020 Mini Catalogue.  I love the simplicity and promise of spring in this Timeless Tulips set and matching Tulip Builder punch.

There’s a few great sentiments in this set as well!  You should be receiving your copies of this catalogue soon so make sure to check out page 43 to see this set!

The simple layout comes from the new Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I popped it a little with the background piece and used Mint Macaron ink and a sponge to give it that pretty background.

SHADES OF PURPLE

Happy Friday to you.  Today’s post features the colour purple with this soft and pretty all occasion card.

I was thinking birthday with this one but really love the font on that greeting from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.

The softly coloured wreath was done in Purple Posy and comes from the Painted Harvest stamp set.  I love the tufted background created with the Tufted 3D embossing folder.  It’s really easy to use when partnered with the 3D Embossing Folder Plate.

Here’s the list of all of the products that I used to create this pretty card.

TAKE ME HOME COUNTRY ROAD

Take me home country road – there’s a song about that isn’t there?

The Country Road stamp set is perfectly themed for the country lover and I couldn’t resist creating this card with it.

I matched it up with the lovely green tones in the Garden Lane designer series paper and followed along with this CAS(E) this sketch layout.

I choose to use Mossy Meadow as the feature green to frame the wind vane and for the sentiment piece as well.

TIP:  With it’s shades of green the Garden Lane DSP will make a very pretty Christmas card too!
