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.

BEAUTIFUL WITH LOVELY LATTICE

Today, I present you with a bright and beautiful take on the Lovely Lattice stamp set!

This set from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue will be going away forever on March 31, 2019 so I felt that it needed a bit more love.

I’ve been experimenting with using coordinating colours from the Stampin’ Blends collection and love the way this one turned out.  Adding that lovely variegated ribbon works perfectly with the colour scheme and gives the perfect finish!  And…no card is complete with out the perfect greeting!  This one, compliments of the Part of My Story stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

LILIES FOR A DEAR FRIEND

I’ve been playing with the Lasting Lily photopolymer stamp set and the newly released Lily Framelits Dies.  So pretty!

There’s something else that’s new on this card – check out the background!  That is the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder that gives a beautiful impression loaded with flowers!

This is just one of the cards we will be creating at the Last Chance Sale-A-Bration class.  It starts of 7PM next Wednesday, March 20!  Are you signed up yet?  You won’t want to miss it so visit this Sign Up link to reserve your spot.

ANNIVERSARY GREETINGS

Hi and welcome!  Yesterday’s card showed just a bit of the Painted Seasons Bundle so today I created an anniversary card that uses the whole bundle.

Isn’t it pretty?  The background mat is just one of the beautiful designs that are in the Painted Seasons designer series paper that goes with the Painted Seasons stamp set.

I used a Sponge Dauber to add a little touch of Flirty Flamingo ink to the Petal pink as well as a bit of Mossy Meadow ink for the leaves.  Then all of those pretty flowers and leaves were “fussy” cut with Paper Snips.  Yup, I did that!

The Story Label Punch is responsible for that lovely label that I arrange those flowers on.  This punch is also available in the Sale-A-Bration Coordination special.

Here’s the full list of products used.

THOUGHTS OF YOU

Welcome and thank you for visiting today!  Do you scroll around through Pinterest for ideas?  I sometimes do and found a beautiful card that uses the Climbing Roses cling bundle. Well, I decided to re-create it myself and this is what I came up with.

I started off by using the Highland Heather and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers and an Aqua Painter to colour those beautiful roses.  I applied the colour with the markers and then used the Aqua Painter to spread and lighten it.  You can also pick up the colour from the marker tip and apply it that way.  Either method works very well.

The rest was putting together these lovely colours and adding a piece of the Grapefruit Grove Organdy Ribbon from the Combo Pack that’s in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

Here’s the list of products used.

I hope that you are inspired to give this colouring method a try, it’s not as hard as it sounds.

Happy Stamping!

TIME FOR A BALMY WEDDING

Wedding season is always here and today’s card takes us to a balmy wedding celebration.

I kept this very simple and let that wonderful sentiment be the stand out on this card.  Of course weddings are all about love so why not a groups of hearts sprinkled across the card front!  If you look closely, you will see that I added a few of the Heart Epoxy droplets to highlight a few of those balmy hearts.  Those droplets fit perfectly over the hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits die.  It’s this one…..

MANY LOVELY ROSES WISHING FOR SPRING

Me and these many lovely roses are very fervently wishing for spring!  One of the best things about having a stamping business is that you can create your own season any time you want!  All it takes is some cardstock, ink and a great stamp set like the Climbing Roses Cling Bundle.

I used the Petal Pink and Shaded Spruce combo Stampin’ Blends to colour those little beauties and cut them out with the matching thinlit die.  Don’t they look so pretty sitting on that trellis and label?  I used a combination of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots to arrange them.

This would make a great Valentine’s card but my thoughts when making it were for an anniversary or wedding!  It’s perfect for either one!

Here’s the list of products used.
