A Special Note …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Saturday … and for some of us, an extra long weekend! No work on Monday 🙂 Happy Face!!  I love when I can spend more time in my stamping room and play with my new stampin’ stuff.

Today, I have a beautiful card to share with you. We made this card during my “Floral Phrases” class. The focus of the class was to illustrate the different ways that you could use this awesome bundle.

This card was simple to make but looks extravagant. We begin with the Night of Navy cardstock – cut lengthwise. The inside white and white for the front are both cut at 4″ x 5-1/4″.

Place one of the white sheets on the the New BigShot platform and topped with the Precision Base Plate. The Precision Base Plate will deliver improved performance with this detailed die, giving you the extra fine cut. Place each of the floral dies at the end of the cardstock … there will be a space between them.

Once cut, I used the Die Brush to remove the small cut pieces from the dies. I applied the cut piece to the front of the card using my Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped my greeting from the stamp set onto a 1″ strip of Whisper White and attached it directly to the card. Add a few Pearls and your done with the front … that quick and easy, with beautiful results.

The inside of the card has a strip of the coordinating Designer Series Paper – Floral Boutique and another of the greetings/verses that come with the Floral Phrases stamp set. This is the first bundle that caught my eye when I first got my annual catalog … I love it!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the beautiful sunshine (I hope it’s shining by you too).

Simply Sunday: Congratulations

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a card with you, that you may find surprising to find on my Simply Sunday post. But just so you know, what looks like you put so much time into, it was quite simple!

Let’s begin with our “Floral Boutique Suite” …This is one of the cards from my Floral Boutique class.

You’ll find the entire product suite on page 76 and 77 of our annual catalog. Our core colors are Whisper White and Night of Navy, so make sure you pull out the cardstock and coordinating ink.

You’ll cut your cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half to create a “tent” fold. You will also need to cut a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ to slide behind the front of your card. You’ll emboss the spray of flowers folder from the “Floral Affection” tolder set.

Next you will cut the smaller piece of the die set at the bottom of your card, this is where the Navy goes – behind the design … just watch those beautiful flowers pop. Before you secure that down, be sure you add your white ribbon.

Now you’re free to stamp all your images, inside and out. The greeting “Congratulations” fits so nicely between the two swags of flowers … Love it!

I wanted to add even more texture so I punched out the butterflies using the coordinating Designer Series Paper – “Floral Boutique” and vellum.

I added a string of pearls to my butterfly for the body and to complete the card I just added one of the beautiful “Metal Rimmed Pearls” to highlight the beautiful die cut. It is so delicate, so pretty.

I hope my card inspired you to explore the beauty of this product suite, either to use yours to the fullest or to purchase one.  So many ways you can use this.

Thank you for taking time out of  your Sunday to stop by.

Have a beautiful day!
