Stampin’ Up! Basket of Blooms with Field of Flowers

June 29, 2020

How about a cute little ensemble of potted posies?

I used the Stampin’ Up! Basket of Blooms stamp set and the Small Bloom Punch.

I paired it with the awesome Field of Flowers stamp set. I played with some different colors- Gorgeous Grape, Bumblebee, Flirty Flamingo, Magenta Madness, and Pumpkin Pie. I easily fussy cut the terracotta pot out of Terracotta Tile Cardstock. I put a little pennant end on each side of the sentiment strip. The Field of Flowers has super sentiments and images…and comes with a border punch that cuts out the little flowers!

A simple little decorating on the inside.

I also made a card that I colored in the images.  I used Shaded Spruce ink and Blends markers for the stems and Gorgeous Grape ink and Highland Heather Blends for the flowers. I added in some retired Glitter Enamel Dots to the middle of the flowers. I also added a little linen thread bow.

Stampin’ Up! Game On

June 26. 2020

Well, here’s my hubby’s birthday card…

My card, or should I say his card,  got a few oohs and aahs at our family take-out pizza dinner, too! It’s nice when your kiddos comment on the cards you make:) It was super easy to fussy cut the cards, too.

The Happy Birthday sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set. I am on my lost pack of retired black rhinestones but the red ones are still available:)

Stampin’ Up! Whiskey Business

June 22, 2020

Here is the Father’s Day card I made for my hubby yesterday…
although he mostly enjoys wine not whiskey…lol.

I used the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. Each sheet has photographic images of wood, tile, stone, and other textural cloth elements. I LOVE the top portion on this card- isn’t is just awesome? I colored my whiskey with a So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker then colored over it with Light Soft Suede Blend to get a good whiskey color. My ice cubes are just colored with the So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker.

I added a little bling with some Gilded Gems that really look nice in person.
I love the sentiments in the set. All of them are so cool!

Now…I have to  get to work to make him a birthday card…it’s only three days away!!!

June 19, 2020

The June 2020 Paper Pumpkin “Box of Sunshine” is here!

I will be sharing MY Box of Sunshine and other alternative cards next week but wanted to show you how I used the exclusive stamp set  in the June kit to make this fun card with the NEW Stitched Triangles Dies!

As soon as I saw those Stitched Triangles Dies, I immediately thought of a sun with rays coming from it, did you? Knowing the June 2020 Paper Pumpkin was a Box of Sunshine, I knew they would go together!! *Looks like the sun was in my eyes when I put the sentiment on a little off;)
