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!

THERE’S NOTHING LIKE TRUE FRIENDSHIP

True friendship is a great gift and I created a card to celebrate just that!

The To A Wild Rose Bundle (151073) is the perfect stamp set to use with its beautiful roses and equally beautiful greetings!

This is a 3-step stamp set which makes it really easy to add shading and tone to those beautiful flowers!  There is also a new Stazon Ink in the Spring Mini Catalogue (page 29) called Saddle Brown and I felt that it would give a softer outline to the flowers and leaves.

Here’s the list of products used for you.  Just a note though, the Saddle Brown Stazon and Designer Paper is not yet available to purchase.

IS IT 2020 ALREADY????

The year 2020 is right around the corner – how did that happen?  When I was younger thinking about the 2000’s seemed like science fiction – but here they are!

So why not create a simple card to celebrate the coming year!

I was looking through my stack of designer papers and decided that this pattern from the Dinoroar package would work perfectly.  It gives the look of streams of confetti falling so fits in with the new year theme very happily!  And then I decided to add a few sequins to “fancy” it up just a bit!

The simple layout comes from the CAS(E) this sketch challenge for this week.

Here’s the list of products used.  No stamp sets involved today!

TO A WILD ROSE

Happy Monday and a warm welcome to you!  I recently added the To A Wild Rose bundle to my stamp library and got right to work with it.

It’s so very pretty so to get started with it, I CASE’d the card on page 140 of the annual catalogue.  I used an Old Olive card base as the starting point and used the Corrugated embossing folder to add some texture.

Masking is he technique used here to make it easier to add those extra blooms.  Just use the die to cut out one flower and place it over the first stamped bloom.  Easy!

Get Ready!!!  The Year-End Closeout Sale Starts this week. Tomorrow, December 3rd, I’ll be checking in on the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator website for information for you and will post it on my Facebook page.  Make sure to check it out at this link.
