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!

Here’s the list of products used.

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!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2020

Tonight we usher in the year 2020 – a brand new decade of possibilities!

What better way to say Happy New Year than with this soft and pretty card.  It was created with the new Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp using the Silvery Shimmer Delicata Metallic ink!  I added interest by stamping a couple more images and then cutting out the flower to layer.  The silver strips add an extra bit of interest as well.

Here’s a side view of that popped-up flower.

I used the layout posted by CAS(E) this sketch and had a lot of fun with it as you can see.

THIS BIRTHDAY IS NOT FOR THE BIRDS

Hello there and welcome!  I’ve been quiet lately and focussing on Christmas with my family!  I did finally have some time to stamp and created this pretty bird infused birthday card.

There’s always a need for birthday cards in our family and this one has a nice touch of spring to help add a little lightness to our winter.

I used a Sale-A-Bration set, Happy Birthday to You for the greeting because I love the font!

Here’s the list of products used.  Just a note – the Sale-A-Bration set will not be available until January 3, 2020!

Do you stay up to welcome in the New Year?  It’s been a few years that my husband and I have done that so we’re going to try this year.  It’s the start of a new decade so why not!

Have a great day and Happy stamping to you!

BLOSSOMS FOREVER

It must be something about all of the snow we have, because I’ve been focussing on blossoms this week.  So, today’s card features the new Forever Blossoms stamp set with just a hint of the matching designer paper.

Don’t they remind you of cherry blossoms in the spring?  This is a beautiful stamp set that lends itself well to weddings and anniversaries.  I took a little artistic license with the greeting though, and did some masking to get just the words I wanted for this card.

Did I mention the matching Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder?  I used it for the background mat – it’s is so very pretty!  I think you’re going to love this set and all of it’s matching accessories!

Here’s the list of products used.

RED ROSES FOR A DECEMBER BIRTHDAY

I’ve been having a lot of fun creating with new stamp sets and accessories from the Spring Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogues!

Today’s card with the cake covered in Red Roses is especially pretty!

This is the Happy Birthday to You set that’s a FREE choice ($60 purchase) from page 8 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  It’s perfect for using the Stampin’ Blends!  I chose red to colour those lovely flowers as this card is for my daughter and she loves red!

The background mat showcases the Country Floral 3D embossing folder which works perfectly with the rose theme.

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.
