Tags In Bloom

This is really the first time I’ve used the Tags in Bloom Sale-a-bration stamp set. You can get it for FREE  (with a $100 order). Why did I wait so long? I guess I really didn’t understand how the label worked. I’m going to show you how, (maybe you already know……).

Tags in Bloom (SAB), So Very Vellum Speciaty dsp, (SAB),Stampin' Blends, Wink of Stella, Stitched So Sweetly Dies

First, to get the flowers on both the top and bottom of the frame you need to ink up HALF of the stamp, stamp. Then ink up again (same way), turn the stamp around and line up the frame (easy to do since a photopolymer stamp) and stamp. Now you have the flowers on the bottom and top. Thank you Patty Bennett!

Next, ink up the dotted image on a scrap of Whisper White and stamp. Add your greeting in the center. Now Punch using the Label Me Lovely Punch. Add dimensionals to the back and mount onto the image with the flowers. Now I get how it all works. It was a “duh”moment for me when Patty showed me.

We started with 4 1/4″ x 11″, thick Whisper White cardstock for the card base. Next we used the So Very Vellum Specialty dsp (FREE, during SAB) and cut that piece 4″ x 5 1/4″, also cut a matching piece of cardstock, same size. It makes the Vellum really stand out better. Add adhesive to the center part of the Vellum and it won’t show because you are going to cover it up with the Stitched So Sweetly Scalloped Rectangle with Dimensionals. Of course, you will want to color the flowers BEFORE you add it to your card base.

This card has the Pool Party Vellum and I used Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green & Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

For this card I didn’t stamp the large floral image at the bottom, I stamped the single flower 3 times and fussy cut them out. Tucked one under the label and the other two have Dimensionals under them.

This is the Purple Posy card. I used Purple Posy, Call Me Clover and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. For the next two cards, I stamped the single flower and colored to add one flower to the bottom of the label.

And the last card is Soft Sea Foam. I used Pretty Peacock, Soft Sea Foam and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

Had an extra flower so I put it on the inside of the card.

I finished all the cards with a double Linen Thread bow and a few Champagne Rhinestones.

Lasting Elegance, Meets Lily Impressions DSP, Meets Sentimental

Boy that’s a mouthful! These cards are simple, but oh so pretty. The Lasting Elegance Dies are AMAZING. You really don’t need much else.

This is another card that I did with my friend Patty Bennett. I had die cut the Lasting Elegance Dies with no real plan, other than to use the Lily Impressions dsp from Sale-a-bration.  So we put together the Lovely Lipstick card and then I thought, why not show the other show stoppers?

Lasting Elegance Dies, Lasting Impressions dsp (SAB)

I’m not a big fan of the flower prints in this dsp, but I LOVE the other sides.  And they work perfect under the Whisper White die cuts. The top 4 are all the solid colors, the one on the bottom uses the print side. Pretty isn’t it?

These are the card bases. I forgot to add the Lovely Lipstick, since it was already done.

Your card base is, 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″. The Whisper White piece is 4″ x 5 1/4″. You can see how I die cut it below. I first did the straight lines (yes, its part of the  Lasting Elegance Die set and then did the flower at the bottom right side. I did 2 passes through the Big Shot and most of the pieces all fell out, the others I used my Die Brush. The dsp was cut just a bit shorter than the Whisper White piece. Like an 1/8 of an inch smaller. I used Tombow Liquid Glue to attach to the dsp. It gives you a little wiggly room to get it on straight.

You really should stamp the sentiments before you put it together. Just in case you make a boo boo. I used the sentiments from So Sentimental Stamp Set. The moon must have been aligned right for me as I stamped after my cards was all put together. Usually I don’t stamp that straight. You really don’t need much more. I had to add my double Linen Thread bow and a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones. For the inside I used the largest Scalloped Rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. You can get the So Sentimental Stamp set and the Stitched so Sweetly as a bundle and save 10%. These babies are a staple in my stamp room.  I did stamp the flower from the Lovely Lily Pad SAB set.

Lovely Lipstick & Grapefruit Grove are part of the 2018-2020 In Colors that are retiring soon. Get them while you can.

The card below I used the print side of the dsp.

It was so much fun making all these cards. Thanks to Patty for using the Lily Impressions dsp. and its FREE. Win/win!

Wishing You Sunshine & Happiness

Who wouldn’t like to receive this card? Don’t the flowers just make you happy? This is another card I did with my friend Patty Bennett. It would be nice if we could just stamp flowers all the time……wait, we didn’t stamp any flowers, we die cut them, haha!

This die is part of the Coordination Product Release. Is only available until March 31st (less than 3 weeks people), or while supplies last. It is amazing! We used the flowers in the circle die. Its so easy. Just run the die through the Big Shot (or what ever die cutting machine you happen to have) and color the flowers with your Stampin’ Blends. Its that easy. Don’t have Blends? (I can help you with that…..lol) or Stampin’ Write Markers or watercolor with your Aqua Painter. The possibilities are endless.

Sending Flowers Dies, Honey Bee Stamp Set, Thick Whisper White c/s, Stampin' Blends, Wink of Stella, Champagne Rhinestones

We started with a 4 1/4″ by 8 1/2″ piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 4 1/4″.

You will need a piece of (regular) Whisper White cardstock, 4″ x 4″. It looks like it won’t leave enough of a border, but it will.

Sending Flowers Dies

This is what you get. The top piece is trash and the bottom piece you will color with your Stampin’ Blends.

Takes just a few minutes to color the flowers and leaves. We just colored them in with no shading. Simple!  Then add Dimensionals to the back and attach to your card base. TIP: The edges of your Dimensionals work perfect for this.  We added some of the Mini Dimensionals to the flowers.

We also added some Champagne Rhinestones, and then I decided we needed to “wink” all the flowers with Wink of Stella. I know what you’re thinking, what about the sentiment? It is from the Honey Bee stamp set on page 30 of the mini. Ink it up with Granny Apple Green and stamp. Patty and I both, prayed it would be centered and straight. It was! It was the perfect sentiment for this card and it was curved too. Win/win!

Make sure you take a peek at Patty’s card too. We still have more cards to share, so stand by.
