IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY

“Days are beautiful that begin with you”!  What better way to say that than with this lovely greeting card.

It’s such a simple way to send that greeting to someone that you love!

I started off with a card base of Petal Pink and matched the flower using Petal Pink Classic ink.  The punch that goes along with the Floral Essence Bundle makes creating perfect flowers really easy! TIP:  The Leaf Punch (144667) matches this stamp set perfectly too!

The Stitched Nested Labels Dies were used to cut the background designer paper (Perennial Essence) as well as the greeting label.

Here’s the list of products used.

I’m happily off to create a few more cards with this lovely bundle so have a great day and Happy Stamping to you too!

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.

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!

SIMPLY THE BEST

Today’s card is something a little different from my usual style.  I did a little stamp spritzing for this one.

So, I inked up the flowers from the A Little Lace cling stamp set and then used the Stampin’ Spritzer on the stamp before applying it to the paper.  I used Calypso Coral and Blueberry Bushel inks for this.

TIP:  Definitely used Shimmery White cardstock for this technique as it take water well and doesn’t pill.

Then, that imaged need a frame so I used two of the Stitched Rectangle dies to make the Calypso Coral frame and adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To keep the colour the same, I used a piece of Shimmery White to create the card base as well.

Enjoy and Happy Stamping to you!

HIDDEN FLOWERS

Today’s card uses the Parcels & Petals Bundle again!  It’s so easy to use and I created this pretty card with it.

I was checking out Pinterest and found a card that used a die to create an interesting edge so tried it myself.  The Seasonal Layers dies have a great scalloped piece and that it was I used to make two separate layers for the card front.

The flower image was stamped onto Whisper White with Highland Heather Ink.  Then I added more by “stamping off” so the other blooms would be a softer colour.

Then it was just a matter of picking the perfect greeting and putting the card together.  I used a lot of Stampin’ Dimensionals and the Grid Paper for placement of the pieces.

Here’s the list of products used.

HELLO THERE

Well hello and welcome!  I felt that his Monday needed some bright flowers so I pulled out the Band Together Bundle and the Pressed Petals Specialty designer paper and got to work.

In case you haven’t noticed, I really enjoy colouring with our fabulous Stampin’ Blends and chose Lovely Lipstick for those bright flowers.  The dies that go with the Band Together set include shapes for leaves so I cut out quite a few to add to those blooms.

There’s a little bit of everything on today’s card and it’s all listed below for you.

LET THE PAPER DO THE TALKING

Stampin’ Up! has some beautiful designer papers this year so I decided to let the paper do the talking on today’s card.

These strips are from the beautiful Mosaic Mood Specialty designer paper.  Some pages have shiny, raised images which indeed, does make it special.  Click on the picture to get a closer look.

This card follows along with the new CAS(E) this Sketch challenge which gave me the inspiration to use that beautiful paper.

I used the birthday greeting from Beautiful You and masked off the parts of the greeting that I didn’t want to show.  It’s easy to do with small pieces of tape.  Remember to take those piece of tape off before you stamp the image.(ask me how I know, lol)

Here’s the list of products used.

Aren’t they just the cutest birds ever?!  They are so easy to colour a look great sitting on that branch!
