Simply Sunday: Serene Garden

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope this day finds you well … and I wish all you ladies out there a Happy Mothers Day… we all nurture in some way or another. Today I have the perfect stamp set to celebrate women everywhere; the Serene Garden stamp set.  I find this stamp set simply stunning and I just had to have it. It has a bit of that Art Deco flair so I did it in black and white and a touch of pink …

The whispy flow of the greenery really draws your eye to the card and it was colored using the Stampin’ Blends … same with the flowers, they were gently colored with the Petal Pink duo to create some depth.  I colored the butterfly the same way and cut it out with the coordinating die. Let’s not forget that Wink of Stella … that is what gives the flowers and butterfly that beautiful sparkle.

The entire piece was popped up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals and the greeting comes from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.

I am sad that this beautiful stamp set, Serene Garden will be retiring in less than a month. Stop back tomorrow, I have another card I’d like to share with you that my clubs did this month.

Till then, enjoy your day! Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit with me.

Happy Mother’s Day! (Sneak Peek)

Happy Mother’s Day to all my stampin’ friends,

Wishing all you Mom’s out there a wonderful and peaceful day.  And a big “Welcome” to all my new friends who have recently signed up to follow my blog.

What better gift could I give than to share a “sneak peek” from our upcoming 2014-15 Annual Catalog.  I chose a beautiful flower … the new “Blended Bloom”.  It was love at first sight, and I knew I had to have this one.

My base card is Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White.  The flower is stamped with the new “Momento” Ink pad.  Looks a lot like the StazOn, but does not smell as good.  It is however designed to work with the new “Blendabilities” markers.

Most of the blendabilities come in a 3-pack.  I have used the Daffodil Delight and the Cherry Cobbler Assortments.  They are really easy to work with.  If you like to color and take your time blending … it’s your dream.  However, if you like a quick color, they work pretty nice for that too.  It did not take me long to color in and blend these colors together.

I added a bit of “lace” for Mom with the “Delicate Details” lace tape.  Holy cow is that easy to work with!!  It’s lightly tacky so you can place it down, and then reposition if you have too.  No adhesive needed … just assembly 🙂  I also tucked a strip of the lace on the inside of my card too.

My Mother’s Day greeting comes for the “Delightful Dozen” stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  I regret to say that this fabulous set in on the retirement list 😦

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peak.  I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of that flower from me!

Thank you so much for taking time out of your Mother’s Day to visit with me and my blog.

Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Sunday to all ~
