So, without further ado – here is one of those stamp sets that you know you want from the moment you lay eyes on it.  It’s called Peaceful Reflections and I thought it was perfect for our feminine theme.

The card base is a returning color – Mint Macaron – which is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored and folded at 4-1/4″ for a side folding card.  I then took a 4″ x 4″ square of Share What You Love Designer Series Paper and sliced it in half on the diagonal.  Each triangle was then fixed to the card base leaving a narrow border of the Mint Macaron to show throw.  This left a gap in the middle over which I attached about 7″ of of the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon (I am so happy this carried over) using Mini Glue Dots.

Next it was time to work on the design panel.  I used one of the new Delightfully Detailed Note Cards, cutting it in half and using the front.  Love the softness and how the color fades, making it look like water.  Less work for me LOL!   I started with the large water rings from the Peaceful Reflection Stamp Set inked in Pool Party.  I then inked the bottom layer of the water plant using So Saffron and stamped it down.  The top layer of the water plant was inked in Pear Pizzazz.  I just love layering stamps, don’t you?  Then it was time to stamp the dragonflies.  The bottom layer is inked with Memento Tuxedo Black and the wings filled in with the second layer inked in Wild Wisteria (I will miss this color but love the new purples they came out with).

The sentiment is from the Love What You Do Stamp Set.  I inked it in Pool Party to tie in the water rings below and stamped it in the upper right of the design panel. A quick brush of Wink of Stella on the water plant and dragonfly wings and the card was almost done.  For a finishing touch I added 3 rhinestone accents.

I hope you enjoyed my card, and seeing some of the wonderful new things that will be available for our customers to order starting June 1st.   There’s much more to come, so stay tuned!

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.
