FLORAL ESSENCE BUNDLE

Welcome to September and today’s card created with the Floral Essence Bundle!

Sometimes one just needs an idea to get started so I cased(Copy and Share Everything) this card from page 107 of the Annual Catalogue.

Vellum was the starting point and I’ve been excited to try out the Shimmer Stampin’ Emboss Powder so just had to use it for those pretty blooms!. The matching Perennial Flower punch is a great tool and helped with the top flower.  Paper Snips cut out the background bloom.

Here’s the list of products used.

A BRIGHT BIRTHDAY GREETING

Wow, today I’m going from neutral to really bright with this happy birthday card.  Warning – you may want to wear sunglasses, lol!

I wasn’t fooling – this one is bright!  I played around with the Pigment Sprinkles and a Stampin’ Spritzer to get these cheery blooms just right!

The image was first stamped using Jet Black Stazon ink and then I carefully sprinkled the powders so the right colour would end up as close to where I wanted it as possible.  I used Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo and then very carefully and gently spritzed.  All-in-all not too bad for the finish.

I was following along with the new Freshly Made Sketches layout so decided to go all in on bright and used the Daffodil Delight Pigment Sprinkles for the background.  Wow!

Here’s the list of products used.  Make sure to check out the Pigment Sprinkles, they are so much fun to use!

THE GRATEFUL SQUIRREL

Today’s card features a little squirrel nibbling on an acorn.

As you can see, I went with neutral colours on this and I love the background stream.  Since there are no matching dies for this set, I did “fussy-cut” the squirrel image.

I also used the “masking” technique to get just the one word for the sentiment.  Just place tape over the words(or images) that you do not want, ink and then remove the tape before stamping.

The card layout comes from this week’s sketch from The Paper Players.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

THE BEST WORDS

The best words are thank you!  I needed to stock up my thank you cards so had fun with this one.

The Handwritten background stamp has lots of great words in many languages and makes a great background for that pretty little bird.  It’s available in both Wood Mount and Cling Mount.

The Free As A Bird stamp set is so very pretty and lots of fun to colour and I used a collection of our fabulous Stampin’ Blends for that little bird and the flower and leaf images.  There a no dies for this set, so fussy-cutting is the name of the game!

THANKFUL FOR GOOD THINGS

I know it seems too early for autumn-themed cards but…….up here in northeast BC, the leaves are turning and the nights are getting chilly!  So. here is an autumn-themed card to cheer you today with it’s shades of green!

So we’re talking autumn but leaving the true autumn colours in the drawer for now, lol!

The Country Home photopolymer stamp set provided the greeting and I used the new and coming soon, All Around Wreath Dies as well as the scallop from the Flourish Dies.  I resisted the urge to add more designer paper and used the Subtle 3D embossing folder instead!

The layout was provided by CAS(E) this sketch which gives lots of choices for a project!

Here’s the list of products used.  NOTE: The Come To Gather Designer series paper and the All Around Wreath Dies won’t be available to purchase until September 4, 2019!

LIFE IS BETTER WITH YOU

I thought that I’d end the week with another creation using the Seasonal Wreaths Photopolymer stamp set that’s coming in the 2019-2020 Holiday Catalogue.  There’s nothing like playing with new products!

And this stamp set is perfect for all-season wreaths!

I pulled out the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches for this so I could also show off a couple of the beautiful designs in the Come Together Designer Series Paper pack.  It compliments the Seasonal Wreaths set so vey nicely!  Here’s the sketch.

And, here’s the list of products used.

DOUBLE THE HAPPINESS

Hi and welcome!  Today’s card features the Varied Vases Photopolymer stamp set and matching Vases Builder Punch.

It is so sweet with those trailing blooms and I’m sure will be received with delight!  To get those flowers and vases placed just right, I used a post-it note to cover the designer paper while stamping the flower images.

I followed along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge for the layout which worked perfectly with my idea.
