Hello stamping friends.  My share for you today was inspired by a teammate of mine.  I love coloring with with our Stampin' Blends markers and the True Love designer paper is gorgeous in the black and white, but wow, some color really makes it pop.  I am a purple lover so I colored the flowers with the Highland Heather blends, the leaves with Just Jade and the flower centers are Mango Melody dark.

Corner Bouquet with Lovely You


Hello, Happy New Year!!  My share today is using a stamp set that you can earn for free beginning January 5, 2021.  It is called Corner Bouquet and it is free with a minimum purchase of $50, before tax and shipping.  I started with a piece of white cardstock and using the new blending brushes, also available beginning January 5, 2021, I sponged Rococo Rose at the top and Cherry Cobbler at the bottom.  I then splattered some water drops onto the sponged layer to add some interest.  Once that was dry, I used the Stamparatus to stamp the corner image and the greeting multiple times to get a nice dark black image.  I layered that onto Rococo Rose and then onto Cherry Cobbler.  My card base is Basic Black.  For the inside, I used the smaller corner image and inked it with Rococo Rose. Before I stamped the inside layer I sponged some Cherry Cobbler where the flowers were.  I also stamped this image on the envelope.





I have a link below (just click on the picture) to add all of the supplies to your shopping cart, or click HERE.  Just make sure to uncheck the items you already have.  If you are viewing this prior to January 5, 2021 then the supplies that are not available yet are not listed.

Poinsettia Petals


Howdy stamping friends.  My share for you today is made with the Poinsettia Petals bundle.  This bundle is amazing and saves you 10% when you purchase the dies and stamp set together.  The poinsettia and leaves were made just from the dies, but the greeting and sentiment are from the coordinating stamp set.  I used the Brightly Gleaming designer paper with my card and think that the Pretty Peacock pairs nicely with this bundle.

Sneak Peak - Snow Wonder


           

Hello my stamping friends.  Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I am sharing items from the new August - December 2020 Mini Catalog from Stampin' UP!  I know it's only July, but I couldn't wait to play with the Snow Wonder stamp set.  I love snowmen and this particular one is fabulous.  You can purchase the bundle and save 10% and the dies cut this beautiful snowman out.  The greeting on the front and the sentiment on the inside come from Itty Bitty Christmas and the snowflakes on the inside come from Snowflake Wishes.  I chose one of the patterns of paper from the Snowflake Splendor pack and accented my card with the Snowflake Splendor ribbon and the Snowflake Adhesive-backed Embellishments.  The card measurements and supplies used are listed below.

Measurements:
Thick Whisper White: 4¼ x 11 scored at 5½ for the card base
Pool Party: 3-7/8 x 5¼
Snowflake Splendor patterned paper: 3-13/16 x 5-1/8
Whisper White: 3¼ x 3 and a strip that is ½ x 2-7/8

Instructions:
  1. Cut the patterned paper with largest stitched rectangle with the 5th largest cut from the middle to make the frame.
  2. Stamp the trees onto the Pool Party layer with Pool Party ink, stamped off.  I also masked the trees closest to the bottom to stamp the trees in the middle of the frame.
  3. Adhere the frame to the Pool Party layer.  Wrap some of the Snowflake Splendor around this layer and then adhere onto the card base.
  4. Stamp the snowman in Basic Gray ink, stamped off, then color him with Stampin' Blends.  I used Pool Party combo, Mossy Meadow light, Cherry Cobbler dark, Basic Black light and Pumpkin Pie dark.  Cut out with coordinating die.  Add to card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Tie a bow with the Snowflake Splendor ribbon and adhere to card front with glue dots.
  6. Stamp the greeting onto the Whisper White strip with Pool Party ink.  Punch the right end with the Banners Pick A Punch and adhere to card front with mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
  7. Add some snowflake embellishments randomly.
  8. Stamp the sentiment on the inside with Pool Party and the snowflakes with Pool Party also, but stamped off first.
  9. Add some snowflakes to your envelope with Pool Party ink.

Blossoms in Bloom Sympathy

                                           
Hello, welcome to my blog.  My share for you today is a card I always dread making.  My daughter needed a sympathy card for her friend.  I used the new Blossoms in Bloom bundle available June 3, 2020.  I stamped the flowers in Highland Heather and the leaves in Pool Party.  I traced where the leaves would be from my outline die cut and then used the leaf images to to color the leaves in.  I also did this with two small flowers that are not part of the big floral image, but the die cuts them out.  My outline image was cut from Blackberry Bliss.  The greeting and inside sentiment come from Woven Heirlooms.  The front greeting is stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with white embossing powder onto Blackberry Bliss.  The double bow is with the crinkle white seam binding.


Here are the measurements for this card:  
Whisper White Thick: 4¼ x 11
Pool Party: 4 x 5½
Whisper White: 3¾ x 5
Blackberry Bliss: 4 x 5½

Here is a supply list for your convenience:
