Pretty Perennials Thank You Card

For today’s card I used the same bundle as yesterdays card, Pretty Perennials. I totally changed the colors and added that cute frame. Its called Stitched With Whimsy, it only embosses the stitching lines.

You will need:

5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Melon Mambo cardstock, scored at 4 1/4″

3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ Whisper White Cardstock embossed with the Stitched With Whimsy Die

Scraps of Whisper White for the flowers and leaves

I stamped and die cut the flowers (Melon Mambo & Flirty Flamingo) & leaves (Just Jade & Mint Macaron) on Whisper White and laid them on my framed piece (Stitched With Whimsy Die) to get the placement right. Then I went back in and stamped a couple of the stems and flowers. Now I can add Tombow and adhere each of the other pieces, layer by layer.

The sentiment is from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp set and stamped in Memento Black Ink.

To finish off, I added the Matte Black Dots, Double Linen Thread bow & Wink of Stella. I also spattered with the lid on my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend and Wink of Stella.

All of these products will be available on Tuesday, January 5th.

Some items up to 50% off. Sale runs through January 4, 2021 or “while supplies last”.

happy BIRTHDAY Fun Fold Card

Today’s fun fold card is so easy, plus we are using the Pretty Perennials Bundle ($1,000,000, achiever Dena Rekow) & the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper which you will be able to get for FREE (Sale-a-bration) (Jan. 5th – Feb. 28th) with a $50 order.  Order this bundle ($45) and you are $5 away from getting the dsp for FREE. All of these products will be available on January 5th. I am loving all the flowers.

In Bloom Bundle, Flower & Field dsp (SAB), Stamparatus, Black Matte Dots, Wink of Stella,

What you will need:

5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Bumblebee cardstock, scored at 1 1/4″ & 4 1/4″

1″ x 5 1/4″ dsp, you will need 2 of these.

Scraps of Whisper White cardstock to stamp the flowers

Fold the card base as shown above. You can glue the flap down like I did in my final photo, or leave it as is. You will add your 1″ pieces to the top flap and the inside right of card. Stamp all the flowers and leaves (and yes I forgot to add the leaves), die cut with the matching dies.

Next I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment. I guess I need to re-ink my Early Espresso Ink Pad, but glad I used the Stamparatus, so I could stamp it again.

Next I added the flowers and the Matte Black Dots.

To finish off I “winked” the flowers with Wink of Stella. 

I will go back and add the leaves……had them all stamped and die cut.

Remember all these new products will be available on Tuesday, January 5th. Do you need a Mini & Sale-a-bration Catalog? Contact me and I would be happy to mail you one.

Hydrangea Hill Suite Collection

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. Ours was great with our grandkids. But now its time to get back into my Craft Room. I feel like I’ve been doing Christmas for 6 months, I need non Christmas. From here on out, I will be sharing everything new in the Jan-June Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration (SAB) catalogs. No SAB today.  All of these products will be available on January 5th when both catalogs go LIVE!

Hydrangeas are one of my all time favorite flowers. To say I LOVE this suite would be an understatement. I have a feeling you will be seeing a LOT of projects using this suite.

So right out the gate, this is a pretty simple card.

5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Thick Whisper White Cardstock

2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ Hydrangea Hill dsp

Shimmery White cardstock, for the flower and leaves

I started off stamping the flower, stem and leaves with Memento Black Ink onto Shimmery White cardstock. I should have used Stazon Ink, because it bled when I watercolored it. You will see how I covered it up. Next I started water coloring with  Seaside Spray and my Water Painter. Then I went back and added a little Highland Heather Ink. The stem and leaves are water colored with Old Olive Ink.  Aren’t these colors yummy together? Then I die cut with matching Hydrangea Dies.

Hydrangea Hill Suite  Collection, Hydrangea Haven Bundle, Shimmery White c/s, Hydrangea Hill dsp, Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon, Pastel Pearls, Water Painters, I

I added the dsp to the bottom of the Whisper White card base as well as the Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon. Then I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink. The flower was added with Dimensionals. Then I added the petals in Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather cardstock with Tombow Liquid Glue. You need just a tiny bit.

To finish off, I added some of the beautiful Pastel Pearls. These colors just “speak” to me.

I ended up not using this piece, but wanted to show you how cool it is. It cuts the shape of the flower and all the little flowers can be bent up to really give it dimension. Next I will die cut this piece in Shimmery White cardstock and water color it. Stay tuned……

Remember these new products will be available on January 5th. You can view them on pages, 18-20 of the Jan-June Mini Catalog.

Some items up to 50% off. Sale runs through January 4, 2021 or “while supplies last”. Remember that all bundles will be discontinued, but some are carrying forward. Example: The Poinsettia Suite is being discontinued, but you will still able to get the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set & the Poinsettia Dies, just not at the bundle price. Make sense?
