Fresh Florals – A Pop of Color. Tuesday Beginner Series

This card uses the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper.  It is double sided and has all of the colors in the 2017-2019 In Colors group.  I used Tranquil Tide for the sample card, but we switch to Powder Pink for the card we make tonight.  It also features the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder – free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration which ends 3/31/18.

Springtime Wishes – for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

My garden says spring is here even if the calendar doesn’t – and what a great time to celebrate it with the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

This month’s card is filled with florals and can be used for many different occasions – birthdays, get well, encouragement and (my favorite) no reason at all!

March blog hop w

The card base is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″.  I then cut a piece of Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (144185) on the diagonal for some interest.  To add a bit of separation and depth, I cut a piece of the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper (145601) with a scalloped die from the Layering Squares Framelits (141708) and attached it to the bottom edge using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755).  Before attaching this to the card base, I stamped the group of x’s from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set (143940) inking it in Marina Mist ink (126962) all along the bottom third of the card base.  Once this was done, the floral panel was then attached to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then turned my attention to the sentiment panel.  For this, I used the 2nd largest square die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits (145372) to cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Basics (137154) stamp set in Always Artichoke  ink (126972).  The outline floral image from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set (143940) was stamped with Peekaboo Peach ink (141398) for the flower and Lemon Lime Twist (144086) for the stem.  I then inked the filler stamp with Peekaboo Peach and stamped on top of the outline image.

Once all the stamping was done, I cut another piece of the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper using a scalloped die from the Layering Squares Framelits and attached the sentiment panel to it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  This was then placed on top of the floral panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).  The last step was to add a few Enamel Shapes Subtles (141679).

I hope you enjoyed this card – if you have any questions about how I made it, please drop me a comment below and I will be happy to answer them.  Now on to the rest of the hop!  You can click either of the buttons or click on a name in the list below.  Ta ta for now

Springtime Foils – Adore You

My husband is an incurable romantic – how lucky am I?  While I have made him masculine cards I know how much he loves the rich colors that can be found in flowers.  So when I saw the new Sale-Bration Springtime Foils DSP I knew right away there was a card in it for him.  And, I got to use the Blends, so who can beat that?

adore you w

I started with a card base of Melon Mambo cardstock (115320) cut 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″ and set it aside.  Next, I just couldn’t wait to get out the Stampin’ Blends (147475) and have some fun coloring.  I cut a 3-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the gorgeous rose-patterned Springtime Foils Specialty DSP (147193)  and used Calypso Coral light and dark Stampin’ Blends (144045) to color in the roses.  I also used Old Olive light and dark Stampin’ Blends (144597) to color in the leaves.  Very easy and just look at how rich and gorgeous they look against the gold foiling.

I am still having a love affair (shh, don’t tell hubby) with the Painted with Love Specialty DSP (145580) and cut a 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece for the left side of the card.  The colors are so soft and beautiful and add some depth to the overall piece.

I needed to add a sentiment but didn’t want anything taking away from the foiled paper so I die cut a heart using the Lots to Love Box Framelits (145653) die from a scrap of Shimmery White cardstock (101910) .  I then heat embossed the floral images from the Petal Palette stamp set (145788) using Versamark ink (102283) and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (109129) .  I colored them in with the same colors used on the foiled DSP.  The sentiment is from the Graceful Garden stamp set (143849) and was stamped using the Calypso Coral Classic Stampin’ Pad (126983).

To assemble the card, I adhered the two pieces of DSP to each other using Fast Fuse Adhesive. To cover the seam, I cut a 6″ piece of Gold 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon (144146)  wrapped down the seam and adhered each end to the back using a glue dot.  I used the same ribbon to tie a small bow and adhered that with another glue dot.  The heart is popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430) and  the front panel attached to the card base using Fast Fuse.

I hope you enjoyed the card and will give it a try.  Hubby absolutely loved it!  As always, should you need any of the supplies mentioned above, just click the Shop Now button in the upper right corner or click here.

Have a great weekend!

Lovely Wishes – for the Stamp n Hop February Blog Hop

Hello from the USA and happy Saturday everyone!  Welcome to Stamp n Hop’s first international blog hop; I am so thrilled to be participating in it!  There are lots of wonderful crafters from around the world , so be sure to scroll to the end to continue hopping.  Now on to my contribution.

I have always found black and white to be very challenging when they are the predominant colors used in a card.  Once I saw the Petal Passion DSP in the Occasions catalog though I knew I had to give it a try.  And I think it paired beautifully with the stamp set Lovely Wishes.  I kept color to an absolute minimum on this card (very difficult for me LOL) but I am very happy with the result.

I started with a card base of Whisper White (100730) cut 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″.  I then cut a panel the same size as the card front from the Petal Passion DSP (145589).  For the opening, I use the second largest die from the Lots of Labels Framelits (138281).  I then cut a frame for the inside using a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock (115320) and the third largest die from the same die set.

Before assembling, I laid both pieces onto the card base to determine where to stamp the sentiment.  After making a few pencil marks, I inked up the sentiment from Lovely Wishes stamp set (145924) in Smoky Slate ink (131179) and stamped it in the center.  I then erased my pencil marks.

While I had that stamp set out, I stamped the leaf  and flower branch twice onto a scrap of Whisper White using Versamark ink (102283) covered that with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder (109131) and heat set it using the Heat Tool (129053).  I then fussy cut each of the embossed images out – a little tricky but definitely doable and so worth the effort.

Now it was time to put it all together.  I adhered the Melon Mambo piece to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755).  I then popped the DSP panel up using foam tape making sure it was centered over the Melon Mambo frame.  To attach the heat embossed leafy images, I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (144108) doubling up where necessary.

Lastly I tied a small bow using Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon (a free item with purchase in Sale-A-Bration) and adhered that to the bottom left image using a Mini Glue Dot (103683).  For a finishing touch, I added three Basic Rhinestone Jewels (144220) and a smattering of the same which I colored with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker (100082).

And there you have it!  My first black and white (with a touch of color) card.  I really do like the Petal Passion DSP and hope you will give this card a try.  If you have any questions about it just drop me a comment.
