A Little Lace


Hello stamping friends. Welcome to my blog.  My share today started with a color challenge of Poppy Parade, Pool Party and Crumb Cake.  These are not colors I normally use, but I am pleased with the outcome.  The stamp set I used is A Little Lace, which is an older set, that had never been inked up.

Measurements: 
Crumb Cake - 4¼ x 11 scored at 5½, 4 x 5¼ cut with the Stitched Lace die
Pool Party - 2 pieces that are 4 x 5¼ cut with 2 of the Stitched Rectangle dies to make a frame.  The outside finished size is 3-13/16 x 5-1/8 and the frame is about 7/16 wide.
Poppy Parade - 2½ x 4¾ cut with the Stitched Nested Labels die
Basic White - 2¼ x 4¼ for stamping and 3¼ x 4¾ for the inside
Playing With Patterns ribbon - 12"

Instructions: 
  1. Adhere the Crumb Cake layer to the card base.  I used a sponge and liquid glue along with my silicone mat to add the adhesive, but you could certainly use the adhesive sheets as well.
  2. Adhere the Pool Party frame to the card front with Stampin' Mini Dimensionals.
  3. Stamp the large floral image onto the 2¼ x 4¼ Basic White, before you die cut it, with Pool Party ink using the Stamparatus.  Clean the stamp but leave on the Stamparatus and stamp the image again with VersaMark ink.  Pour clear embossing powder over the stamped image and heat set.
  4. I added ink to a clear block and then used the Blender Pens to color the flowers.  When I was done coloring, I wiped off the stamped image to remove any excess ink from the stamped image.
  5. Using the Stitched Nested Labels die, cut out the stamped image.  Adhere to the Poppy Parade layer also cut with a size bigger of the Stitched Nested Labels.
  6. Wrap the ribbon around the stamped layers and tie a bow on the front.  Adhere to card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  7. For the inside, I cut another frame from the Pool Party and adhered it to the inside.  The greeting is stamped with Crumb Cake ink and the small flower image is stamped with Poppy Parade onto the Basic White layer 3¼ x 4¾.
  8. Stamp the small floral image onto the envelope with Poppy Parade ink.

I have a complete supplies list HERE, or you can click on the picture below as well.

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.
