CELEBRATE WONDERFUL

Happy Monday and welcome!  Today’s card features the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle(154065) done up in shades of blue.

I found a card like this on Instagram done by one of our Stampin’ Up! Artisans and was really taken with the technique that she used.

The first step was to sponge the colour, Misty Moonlight, onto a piece of cardstock and then overstamp with the sunflower image.  Then, she heat embossed with Clear Emboss powder and cut it out with the flower outline die.  Then, the actual petal outline die(can’t think of another way to describe it) was used and adhered to the top with our Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  Voila, a wonderful and beautiful blue sunflower!

Here’s the product list for you.

SUNNY DAYS ARE HERE

The days have been sunny and warm lately which inspired me to colour some sunflowers!

The Jar of Flowers Bundle(154064) fits the bill very nicely!  There’s 4 lovely bundle of flowers to choose from for some relaxing colouring!  And… a little fussy cutting too.  I love the Jar Punch and frequently use it with Vellum Cardstock so you can see the stems inside.

SIMPLY THE BEST

Hi and welcome!  Today, I’m playing with the Tasteful Touches Bundle for a clean and simple card.

The combination of the Tasteful Touches stamp set and matching Tasteful Labels dies makes it easy to create a lovely card!  (Get 10% off by purchasing the Bundle)  Since the dies focus on labels only, fussy-cutting is needed for those pretty flowers done in the new InColour, Bumblebee.  Of course, I had to use it’s partner Just Jade for the sentiment and amped it up with an overlay of Versamark and Clear Emboss powder!

The card layout is courtesy of the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

BLOOMS AND BUTTERFLIES

We’ve had a lot of rain lately but it has helped our flower garden to bloom!  It kept the butterflies away but the sun is out now with a forecast of great weather to come.  So, today’s card must feature blooms and butterflies don’t you think?

Actually, the butterflies were a “last minute” idea but I think they work really well.  The spray of blooms and leaves was coloured with our Stampin’ Blends(I love them!) and then cut out with the  Budding Blooms dies(149548).

TO AN EXTRAORDINARY GRANDDAUGHTER

Happy Monday, I hope that you had a great weekend and that all is well!  Today’s card features two great new stamp sets, The Tasteful Touches Bundle that I’ve been using a lot and the new A Grand Kid stamp set(152500).  

A Grand Kid stamp set has so many wonderful sentiments that apply not only to grandchildren but nieces, nephews and sons and daughters.  Make sure to check it out on page 97 of the new Annual Catalogue!

I used the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches so I could use a piece of the beautiful In Good Taste designer paper as well as twine from the Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo.  That flowers was coloured with Stampin’ Blends and then fussy-cut,  The feather was first stamped into the Balmy Blue ink pad and then I added touches of Night of Navy with a Stampin’ Sponge.

Here’s the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

IN GOOD TASTE SUITE

Hi, I’m going to end this week with a look at the In Good Taste Suite.  When a new catalogue comes out, I frequently CASE(copy and share everything) a card and today’s shows off the In Good Taste Suite(154147).

I started off with a card base of Petal Pink and then cut a piece of the In Good Taste designer paper.  The image was stamped randomly in Versamark and then sprinkled with White Emboss Powder.  All that was need then was to heat set it and adhere it to the card base.

That great shape was cut with the matching Tasteful Labels dies stamped with a great sentiment.  To get the tiny circles I used a 1/8″ hand-held circle punch and adhered them with the Fine-Tip Glue pen.  You can find the cased card on page 122!

ONE HAPPY SUNFLOWER

It’s Tuesday already, the second day of June!  But I’m happy about that and so is this great big beautiful sunflower.

This bloom is just one of the great images and sentiments that are available in the new Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.  Don’t worry, it will be available to you tomorrow, June 3rd!

I used a variety of Stampin’ Blends to colour this beauty and backed the whole card up with the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder(151801).

The layout to showcase this beautiful sunflower comes from the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

SHADES OF BROWN

It may seem strange to use browns in the springtime, but spring colours come in many shades and brown is just one of them!

I’m happy to say that the Forever Blossoms stamp set and matching dies are staying around for another year – BUT – purchase them now as a bundle and save 10%.  I pulled a piece of the retiring Magnolia Lane designer paper for the background and added that touch of Blushing Bride for a light pop of colour.

The branch of lovely blossoms was first stamped with Early Espresso and then over-stamped with Versamark, sprinkled with Clear Emboss powder and heat set!  I did the same with that beautiful greeting from the new Tasteful Textures stamp set.  I also used the Tasteful Textures embossing folder for the card base.

SUO Challenges latest challenge is a designer’s choice so I’m playing along with today’s card.  I am also playing along with Colour INKspiration for the colour challenge.

BRIGHT FLOWERS FOR A RAINY DAY

It’s definitely spring up here with all of the green leaves, lawns and budding flowers!  However, it is a rainy day and this card helps to brighten things up!

Two of my favourite colours, green and yellow with a bright pop of red added!  I kept with the package of Garden Lane designer paper(using up the scraps) for the background and relaxed by colouring that lovely bouquet with our Stampin’ Blends.  This bouquet is from the new Jar of Flowers stamp set and I’m pretty sure that I will be using it a lot.

REMINDER:  LAST CHANCE LISTS

The retiring products are still available right up to June 2, 2020 so make sure to check them all out.  Here’s the link to my Website.

IT’S A BEAUTY

To end this week with a little beauty, I’ve created a card with a beautiful soft purple flower!

I loved putting Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green together, it’s such a bright and happy combination!  I used the Band Together Bundle(151076) for this and “spoiler alert” both the stamp set and dies are in the new 2020-2021 Catalogue!  However – they will not be a bundle, so I recommend that you save 10% by getting it before the end of this month!
