LACY WEDDING WISHES

Hi and welcome!  I’ve been thinking weddings lately so pulled out a newcomer to my stamping supplies to create this lacy wedding wish.

The newcomer to my supplies is the Bird Ballad Laser-cut cards and tin.  It is full of lacy card bases that you can use to create any card you wish.

However, CAS(E) this sketch posted this layout and I immediately thought wedding!

Those lovely roses are from the Tea Together cling stamp set and were coloured with the Highland Heather combo of Stampin’ Blends.  I added a hint of dark Petal Pink to the blooms for a subtle highlight.

The perfect greeting makes the card just right and it comes from A Little Lace cling stamp set.

TIP:  Use a thin bead of Multi-purpose Liquid Glue to add the coloured backing behind the lacy front of the card.

Here’s the list of products used.

THINKING OF YOU

Sometimes you just need to send a thinking of you card off to someone who needs to hear from you.  Today’s card should make that person happy!

It’s a study in soft blues with the combination of the new InColour Seaside Spray and an “old” InColour of Blueberry Bushel.

I downloaded the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches this week for the layout inspiration and pulled out Woven Heirlooms and Butterfly Gala for the focal points.

The butterflies were stamped onto a scrap piece of Woven Threads designer paper and then cut out with the matching punch.  I used the very handy Take Your Pick tool to place them just so on the card.  Make sure to check out this tool, it has many uses!

Here’s the list of products for you.

BEST DAY EVER

The best day ever could be a special birthday, an anniversary, wedding or a great achievement!  You choose which one and then create a card like today’s to celebrate.

All you need is a beautiful design from the Perennial Essence designer series paper as the background!  Then add the perfect greeting set off with a beautiful lacy label and you’re all set to wow the recipient!

I think I like the dies from the Band Together bundle the best – they are quite simply – beautiful!

WOVEN HEIRLOOMS FOR A WEDDING

I was thinking wedding for today’s post and what better stamp set bundle than the Woven Heirlooms Bundle(151093)!

This is a spectacular bundle which includes not only the beautiful stamp set but 3D Embossing Folders as well as dies!  It is important to cut out the shape(either oval or rectangle) and then use the embossing folder to add the detail.

Then I stamped the greeting and cut it out with the Layering Ovals dies (the largest one) and attached it to the back of the embossed piece using Mini Glue Dots.

I felt that it needed a little something extra so used the Flourish Thinlits dies to cut the flowers and added a small piece of lace and a pearl to finish it off!

Here’s the full list of products used.

SOMEBODY LOVES YOU

I’ve been thinking of all of the wonderful people in my life and it inspired me to create this card to show that there is always somebody loves you!

The Butterfly Gala stamp set and matching punch were put to good use here along with that lovely greeting from the new Parcels & Petals stamp set.

Of course a good layout was needed and CAS(E) this sketch provided it.

This card also shows off two of our fabulous new InColors, Pretty Peacock(card base and butterflies) and Rococo Rose for the greeting.

ELEGANT MAGNOLIA

Hi and welcome!  Today’s card features, yes, the Good Morning Magnolia bundle with this elegant magnolia bloom.

I was travelling around on Pinterest and found this idea there.  There’s nothing like a little vanilla and gold to help set off this elegant bloom.  I don’t use Very Vanilla often but it sure works nicely for this card.

The Stamparatus is the best tool for stamping the large magnolia bloom and I stamped two.  One on very vanilla and the other on Basic Black with Versamark.  Then it was just a matter of adding some Gold Emboss powder and heating it to set.  Then, the “fussy” cutting began with the very vanilla bloom.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to layer the bloom over the black and popped it up onto the card base.  The Waterfront stamp set provided the background along with the carried over 3/16″ Braided Trim.  A few Gingham Gala Adhesive-backed sequins finished things off!  All that’s left to add is the perfect greeting/verse inside the card.

Here’s the list of products.

IT’S WEDDING SEASON

Happy Monday!  I hope that all of you Mother’s out there had a fabulous day and were unashamedly spoiled!  I was and enjoyed every minute of it.

It’s wedding season and it’s always a great idea to have a card or two on hand to give to the happy couple.

I combined the Meant to Be Bundle with the Special Celebrations stamp set for this one.  A little gold embossing and tiny dots of colour help to set off those tiny roses.  I couldn’t resist using the Country Floral embossing folder either.  A little texture doesn’t hurt!

Here’s the list of products for you.

My New Annual Catalogue pre-order has arrived so I’m off to play with some new stuff!

Happy Stamping!

ALWAYS FOR YOU

Wow, it’s Friday already and I’m wondering why this week went by so quickly, lol!  But, the stamping never stops here and today’s Always You card highlights the beautiful All My Love Designer Series paper and a little colouring.

There’s nothing like sending a pretty card to someone who needs a lift – so why not this one!

I followed along with the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches for this card which made it easy to choose the Accented Blooms stamp set (page 19 Annual Catalogue) .  I’m loving the combination of Lovely Lipstick and Flirty Flamingo for the flowers.

I did some masking on the stamp itself so just those pretty blooms would show.  The matching Tailored Tag Punch works perfectly with this stamp set.

EASTERN BEAUTY TODAY

Hello from Cynthia’s Creative Corner!  I went to the soon to be retiring InColor Fresh Fig for today’s card using the Eastern Beauty stamp set and matching Eastern Medallion thinlits for today’s card.

I think it looks beautiful paired up with the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series paper.  (2019 Occasions Catalogue)

CAS(E) this sketch posted this layout,

which is where I got the inspiration to match up these two lovely products!

TIP:  This colour, Fresh Fig as well as the rest of the 2017 – 2019 InColors are going away soon, so my advice to you is to stock up your favourites soon!

Here’s the product list for you for today.

ONE RED ROSE

Hi and thank you for visiting today.  I’m a little late with this post but am happy to be able to show you this one red rose.

I had some fun colouring with our fabulous Stampin’ Up! blends and love the way this rose turned out.  You are probably asking why it’s been cut into tiny squares – right?  Well, Freshly Made Sketches posted this layout and so I challenged myself to play along.

It took some patience to get those tiny squares lined up but I’m sure happy with the result!

TIP:  Start by placing the outside pieces and then add the others – it helps to make sure that they are all lined up as perfectly as possible.

The pearls were a necessary addition as far as I’m concerned and the Take Your Pick tool (144107) helped a lot with placement!

Here’s the list of products used in case you’d like to try it for yourself.
