WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DIFFERENCE

Today’s card features a beautiful greeting from the Timeless Tulips stamp set and some soft and lovely flowers.

 I love that greeting, it is perfect for an upcoming birthday!  I had previously stamped the flower spray and pulled it out of my UFP tray (unfinished projects) for this card.

It works perfectly with the new CAS(E) this sketch layout.

I chose the softness of So Saffron for the flowers with a little touch of Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  They make a good contrast to the background designer paper from the Perennial Essence pack!

Here’s the full list of products used.

WELL, HELLO HONEY

Honey is the key for today’s card.  And bees, a busy hive of honey bees!

The Honey Bee bundle(153792) is so sweet(pun intended) and so much fun to create with!  Especially when you add the Golden Honey specialty designer paper!  You can see it peeking through the honeycombs and it is a Free choice from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue – a win-win for the bees!

Where did I get the idea for this card?  From The Paper Players sketch of course.

Here’s the list of products used.  And if you would like, purchase the Honey Bee bundle and then choose the Golden Honey designer paper to complete your bee hive.

TULIPS MAKE ME HAPPY

Tulips, in my opinion, are one of the happiest flowers because they announce spring!  Spring is a couple of months away for us so I started my own happy arrival of spring with this card!

This was created with the Timeless Tulips Bundle(153793) and the “coming to you soon” Pleased As Punch designer paper!  Each strip was cut to 1/4″ wide and glued down with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Once they were all in place, I used Paper Snips to trim the ends.

This card also uses the new CAS(E) this sketch layout(you might remember yesterday’s card here).

Here’s the short list of products used.

ON THE RUNWAY

This guy, Sammy Squirrel, is strutting the runway in his fabulous coat and hat!  Check him out!

So cute – I just couldn’t resist playing along with The Paper Players Fashion Fun challenge this week.  I don’t have any specific fashion-themed sets so decided that Sammy Squirrel should “strut his stuff” for this.  I think he looks pretty fashionable in his Pool Party coat with the Poppy Parade trim don’t you?

I used the Kerchief Card kit that I received as a Free choice with my last order to start!  Just pretend that the flowers around the edge are spotlights!

Here’s the list of products used to get him looking his best.

INTRODUCING THE PEACEFUL POPPIES SUITE

Have you checked out the Peaceful Poppies Suite yet?  There are so many beautiful pieces to it that it’s hard to list them all so I created a simple card to show you some of these lovely products.

It starts with the Painted Poppies bundle paired up with the Peaceful Moments stamp set(for the greeting).  The background paper is from the beautiful Peaceful Poppies Designer series paper – there are many more beautiful pages as well so make sure to check it all out!

This lovely simple sketch from Freshly Made Sketches was my starting point.

Here’s the list of products that I used.  Note – one of the colours in this Suite is Poppy Parade!  So appropriate isn’t it?

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.

FOREVER BLOSSOMS

Hello and welcome to you!  I just can’t stop using the Forever Blossoms bundle – it’s so very beautiful especially with the matching designer paper!

Just look at those beautiful flowers on that piece of designer paper!  So I pulled the Pool Party from the background and stamped several blooms with the Pool Party ink and added the leaves stamped with the Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink(it’s retiring as of tomorrow).  The dies that match the Forever Blossoms stamp set make it so easy to cut out those pretty blooms.

Along the left edge, in the background it a piece of braided border made using the new Braided Border Punch that’s in the 2020 Occasions Mini Catalogue.  Make sure to check it out on page 29!

CHERISH EVERY MOMENT

On this first day of 2020 I encourage you to cherish every moment of every day!  We’re starting a new decade – do you have goals that you want to achieve?  My goals are to cherish every moment and learn and grow from them!

So I made this card that will sit prominently to remind me of those goals!

I used a piece of the beautiful Parisian Blossoms Specialty designer paper for the background and the matching Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder for the vellum cardstock!  All that was needed to finish it off was that beautiful sentiment and a tiny flower bud.

Following along with the layout from Freshly Made Sketches was perfect for showcasing that lovely paper!
