Simply Sunday: Petal Palette Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and I thank you for taking time out of your day to stop and visit my blog.  Today I have a sweet -n- simple card for you, that I created using the Petal Palette stamp set (Annual Catalog – page 119) and the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits Dies.

I used the monochromatic style when creating this card which is done in the Balmy Blue …

My base is Whisper White as was the oval for my greeting and the flowers that were die cut with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  I don’t know about you but I feel in love with the Gingham Gala 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper … it’s just so “springy”! Reminds me of a warm sunny day. I chose the smaller gingham side (other is wider) and then backed it with Balmy Blue.

The oval was cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Die and stamped in Balmy Blue.  As I stated earlier … I die cut the flowers with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies and colored them with the Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Combo packs.  They were then popped up using mini dimensionals and embellished with the clear faceted gems (so pretty).

I think the stitching adds the perfect touch to the gingham and those clear faceted gems really make the little flowers pop! Cute yet quick … that’s just how we have to have it sometimes!!

Again, thanks for stopping in today!

I wish you a beautiful Sunday ~

Petal Promenade in Gold

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I would like to share with you a card that I created using the Petal Promenade bundle.  I was inspired by so many cards on Pinterest that I just had to pull out this bundle and discover for myself how easy it was to create with it.

Today’s card was done in Very Vanilla and Gold Foil Cardstock with Gold Embossing …

The base is Very Vanilla which I’ve adhered a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Gold Foil sheet that was embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  The vanilla that is layered on top of our embossed gold, was heat embossed with gold embossing powder using VersaMark and the pretty diamond pattern in the stamp set.

Next comes the focal point … the heart of the card, where I heat embossed both the floral piece in the corner and the greeting.  The flower in the upper right-hand corner of the card was also heat embossed and die cut with the coordinating dies in the bundle.

Both the Very Vanilla pieces that were heat embossed were also cut out using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. I love the delicate edge this creates and it actually coordinates with the stitched areas on the diamond pattern.

Take a moment to check out this beautiful stamp set and the coordinating die and the entire product suite on pages 206 and 207 of the 2018-19 Annual Catalog.

Thank you for joining me today … hope you have a beautiful day.

Friends and Butterflies …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I did not get my “alternative” project finished yet, however I do have a super cute card that we made at Cindy and Sarah’s stamping party (one of the Make -n- Takes. It’s super simple and perfect for your friend.  I’m using the Beauty Abounds stamp set and nothing says spring like “butterflies”

I stamped the background with the “Bokeh” dots … it just creates another layer of dimension. The focal point of the card is the beautiful butterfly designer paper that you can get for FREE during Sala-a-bration with a qualifying purchase.  So … how did I get that sparkle on there?  Good Question!!

There are two ways to do this technique which I call the Glimmer Designer Paper Technique and it’s one of my favorites because it creates such a “WOW” whenever I show it.

  1.  Grab your Silicone pad … you’ll want it for both ways. Place your designer paper onto the silicone pad and with your Snail adhesive – cover the entire piece of designer paper. Next, sprinkle with the Dazzling Diamonds glitter, tap off excess and gently rub it into the adhesive using your finger tip. Tap off excess again.
  2. The second way to do it is just switching adhesives, the rest is the same.  If you are covering a larger piece of designer paper, you will want to use the Multipurpose adhesive sheets. This is also super simple.  Peel off the first layer, lay your designer paper onto the adhesive sheet … then peel off the top layer and add glitter as in step one.

Besides the beautiful butterflies in this stamp set, the verbiage is perfect for sharing a card with your friend.  I added a little ribbon to the card and some rhinestones to jazz it up a bit.

And to create another layer of dimension … I added a piece of vellum behind the focal point of the card.  Hope you enjoyed this technique and you give it a try … it’s simple, it’s fun and it looks amazing!!

Thank you for taking time out of your day and share it with me by stopping by my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Treat your favorite people to sweet messages and when you Bundle, You save! Buy these two coordinating products and save 10%.

This product suite also comes with some delicious designer paper and coordinating reversible ribbon in Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green.  If that isn’t enough, we also have some coordinating Sweet Pins and Tags … oh so cute and you will see how they were used below.

From the pages of the Occasions catalog …

The cute little jar tags can easily be turned into cute cards!!  I am just beginning to explore all of the wonderful components of this product suite … so far, so fun!  I will be sharing my projects at a later date.

Wonderful Floral …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a card that I created using the Floral Romance Product Suite. It’s a stunning product suite and not just for “romance” but for many occasions … In the next few days I will be sharing more samples from this suite.

Lets start out simple yet elegant, and it’s easy to accomplish when you are using the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series paper …  The top two pictured are “Vellum” paper and you get 3 sheets of each.

This is one pack of designer paper that will have no waste whats so ever … every one is prettier than the next.  The pretty floral pattern is the base of our card today.  I started with the Fresh Fig cardstock and added a piece of Whisper White to really make the floral pattern shine …

The pattern on this vellum is stunning … it was designed with amazing layers of color to create depth.  It looked nice on the Fresh Fig but the white behind it really made it stand out.

Then I added the Pink and White Variegated ribbon which has a light texture and is so soft and pretty.  Our greeting comes from the Wonderful Romance stamp set (and the dies were so “hot” they just sold out”… but you could use any of our dies to highlight the greetings in this set.

I could not resist using the cute Frosted Flower Embellishments (they are listed as Low Inventory) and even popped a few of our “old” pearls inside … I couldn’t resist.  Put a few pearls on the flowers on the vellum too, it added some fun texture to the card.

You could most definitely make a ton of these pretty cards … 18 to be exact as you get 3 sheets of this pretty vellum design. Simple and Elegant.

So happy that you joined me today, I hope you have a beautiful day!

Mini Pizza Boxes … All Decked Out!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are doing well.  It’s finally warming up here but it’s coming with rain … however, I’ll take the rain over the blizzard conditions to the west of us!! Stay warm my friends!

Today I’d like to share another Sale-a-bration item … The Mini Pizza Box and the many different ways it can be decked out (and stuffed) Did you know two good sized cookies fit in there!!

First lets team up the Pizza Box with another Sale-a-Bration item, the “Home to Roost” stamp set.  How cute are these two items together.

Next … I would like to share one of my mantle gifts from a past Stamping Retreat.  I turned the pizza box into a “gift box”… and I embossed the top flap!! Did you know that you can use your folders to emboss the cover of the pizza box.  I decked it out with a silver glitter bow on top and rhinestones on the front … they were so pretty!

A project that our attendees made were these festively decorated pizza boxes with three gift tags tucked inside.  These also made a cute little gift, whether they wanted to share them or keep the gift box with tags for themselves … we had a blast making them and they were pretty easy to make.

Let’s move away from Christmas and head over to a birthday celebration … this cute box is surely filled with lots of happy surprises and birthday wishes.  The pizza box is paired up with the “Postcard Pals” stamp set, and I know of few of my grandchildren who would love to get this for their birthday ….

If you don’t have little kids or grandchildren to deck out one of the pizza boxes … why not try the “One Wild Ride” stamp set with it.  What a fabulous way to deck out a gift card, certificate or hey … cash!!

I hope you enjoyed the five fun ways to decorate your pizza boxes … they’re so cute I wonder if they’ll even care what’s inside!  With just a $50 order, you can add these to your goodies for FREE.  Or … if you have more supplies you need to stock up on, you can add that handsome Rooster as well.

Thank you so much for spending part of your Wednesday with me …

Have yourself and awesome day.
