NEVER FORGET

Today is Remembrance Day in Canada!  A day that has been put aside to remember our Veterans who fought in wars to defend our freedoms!

I am posting these two poppies in remembrance of my parents who both served during WW2.

Let us never forget the sacrifices that all men and women made(and still make) to keep both Canada and the US safe, strong and free!

IT’S TIME FOR TEA

With the cold and snow we’ve been having lately, I decided that a project made with Tea Together stamp set would be the best way to go today.

This stamp set was carried over last year along with the matching Tea Time dies!  I was following along with the CAS(E) this sketch layout and decide to use our Pigment Sprinkles(Bermuda Bay) and a Stampin’ Spritzer for the background piece.

NOTE:  When it dries it wrinkles the paper so I recommend using Tear & Tape Adhesive to attach it to the card front.

Here’s the list of products used.

TOGETHER ON THIS JOURNEY

“Together we’ll get through this journey.”  That’s the saying that is the highlight of today’s card.

I hadn’t used the Good Morning Magnolia cling bundle for a while so it was exciting to use it for this soft and beautiful card!  I used the Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers to add ink to the image, using the sides of the markers to give a softer look.

Covering up that beautiful flower wasn’t an option so Vellum was the choice for that inspiring greeting!  Then I used a Silicone Craft sheet and a sponge to add the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the vellum piece so the glue would not show through.

I followed along with this new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for the layout.

A LITTLE MANGO, A LITTLE MINT

I was playing around with the Seasonal Wreaths Cling stamp set on the weekend and came up with this Mango and Mint combination!

The first thing I did was to draw a light pencil line around the second largest Layering Circle die!  This was my guide the stamping the flower flourish in the shape of a wreath.  Once the stamping was done, a White Eraser was used to get rid of the pencil line.  TIP:  It’s very important to use a White Eraser as it won’t leave marks.

Then it was just a matter of colouring with our Stampin’ Blends!  I really like the combination of Mango Melody and Mint Macaron with just a touch of Mossy Meadow.  Then I decided to fussy-cut the wreath as I didn’t like the extra white edges.

Here’s the list of products that were used.

A STUDY IN BLUE FLORALS

Happy Wednesday to you and welcome to today’s blue-themed post! I had seen a card that carried a blue and brown theme so decided to give it a try myself.

This is what I came up with!  I used the Floral Essence Bundle with it’s matching flower punch and did some “fussy cutting” as well.  The Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper is beautiful and this piece is the perfect subtle background!

Here’s the list of products used.

FLORAL ESSENCE BUNDLE

Welcome to September and today’s card created with the Floral Essence Bundle!

Sometimes one just needs an idea to get started so I cased(Copy and Share Everything) this card from page 107 of the Annual Catalogue.

Vellum was the starting point and I’ve been excited to try out the Shimmer Stampin’ Emboss Powder so just had to use it for those pretty blooms!. The matching Perennial Flower punch is a great tool and helped with the top flower.  Paper Snips cut out the background bloom.

Here’s the list of products used.

DOUBLE THE HAPPINESS

Hi and welcome!  Today’s card features the Varied Vases Photopolymer stamp set and matching Vases Builder Punch.

It is so sweet with those trailing blooms and I’m sure will be received with delight!  To get those flowers and vases placed just right, I used a post-it note to cover the designer paper while stamping the flower images.

I followed along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge for the layout which worked perfectly with my idea.

HIDDEN FLOWERS

Today’s card uses the Parcels & Petals Bundle again!  It’s so easy to use and I created this pretty card with it.

I was checking out Pinterest and found a card that used a die to create an interesting edge so tried it myself.  The Seasonal Layers dies have a great scalloped piece and that it was I used to make two separate layers for the card front.

The flower image was stamped onto Whisper White with Highland Heather Ink.  Then I added more by “stamping off” so the other blooms would be a softer colour.

Then it was just a matter of picking the perfect greeting and putting the card together.  I used a lot of Stampin’ Dimensionals and the Grid Paper for placement of the pieces.

Here’s the list of products used.

HELLO THERE

Well hello and welcome!  I felt that his Monday needed some bright flowers so I pulled out the Band Together Bundle and the Pressed Petals Specialty designer paper and got to work.

In case you haven’t noticed, I really enjoy colouring with our fabulous Stampin’ Blends and chose Lovely Lipstick for those bright flowers.  The dies that go with the Band Together set include shapes for leaves so I cut out quite a few to add to those blooms.

There’s a little bit of everything on today’s card and it’s all listed below for you.
