Another Field Flowers Card

Here is the card that I promised you yesterday.  Yesterday's card centered on blues which is my 18 year old daughter's favorite color.  Today's card is centered on purples, and that is my oldest daughter's favorite color.  I didn't plan it that way, it just happened. lol

I decided to make these flowers soft by not stamping on the detailed flower on top of it like I did yesterday.  I love both looks.  After I stamped the flowers, I sprayed Elegant Eggplant ink with the Color Spritzer Tool (p. 203) and Elegant Eggplant marker.  I really like the effect.  The greeting is also part of the Field Flowers set (p. 120).  I stamped it in Early Espresso.  After I was done stamping, I tore around the image, and then sponged the torn edges with Elegant Eggplant.  The designer paper I used is Flirtatious Specialty DSP (p. 183).  The inside of the card is pictured below, too.

Stamps:  Field Flowers

Ink:  Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, & Early Espresso Classic ink pads; Elegant Eggplant Stampin' Write Marker

Field Flowers Birthday Card


Today's card is the card I made for my daughter for her 18th birthday last month.  I've used this set a couple times, and it's one of my favorite new stamp sets.  It's called Field Flowers (p. 120).  I thought I had posted the other card, but I see that I haven't.  I'll have to post the other one I've made with this set tomorrow.

As you can see, I used a special fold for this card.  You still start with a 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of card stock.  I just scored the card at 1-1/4" and 5-1/2" instead of the regular center fold.  I punched out a ribbon strip from Lucky Limeade card stock with the Lace Ribbon Border Punch (p. 211) and attached it to the back of the left, narrow strip.  This made it so the narrow flap can overlap the wider one.  I then attached the left side of the flower piece to the narrow flap.

The designer paper I used is the Fall paper from the Holiday Mini called Spice Cake DSP (p. 17 in the mini).  As you can see, this paper can be used on something other than a Fall project.  I just love it when you can use something for other than what it was intended for.  The greeting is from a hostess set called, Happiest Birthday Wishes (p. 10).

Stamps:  Field Flowers & Happiest Birthday Wishes (hostess) sets

Ink: 
Pool Party, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, & Early Espresso Classic ink pads


Paper:  Island Indigo, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, & Very Vanilla card stock; Spice Cake DSP (Mini)

Accessories:  Simply Scored Scoring Tool (Mini) & Lace Ribbon Border Punch

First Gently Falling Set Card

Hello, everyone!  Today's card is a card I made for a Stampin' Connection swap I was in.  This is one of many stamp sets I'm in love with from the Holiday Mini.  It's called Gently Falling (p. 16 & 17). I was even able to get it as part of a 40% off bundle.  Not only did I get it 40% off, but I also got my regular 20% off on top of that!  I love being a demonstrator and earning stuff at a big discount... some free!  It's wonderful!  If you want to learn more about becoming a demonstrator, just go to my "JOIN THE FUN" page on my demo website.  You can even sign-up to become a demonstrator while you're there, if you like.  I would LOVE to have you as part of my growing group.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to CONTACT ME.

I used one of my favorite Fall color combos...More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla.  It might just be my favorite Fall combo.  I stamped the outline of the leaves first using Early Espresso ink, and then stamped the bolder leaf images in the other three colors.  I also used another great stamp set from the Holiday Mini, Hand-Penned Holidays (p. 15).  I just love this font!  It's so pretty and elegant.  I stamped it in Early Espresso ink.  The bottom border of the Old Olive strip was made with the Scallop Trim Border Punch (p. 211).  If you look closely, you can see that I used the new item, Dazzling Details (p. 41 in the Holiday Mini) on the leaf that I cut out & put on the scallop circle.  I've got a close-up of it below.  Just click on picture to see a larger version of it.  The camera doesn't do it justice, though.  It sparkles a lot more in real life.  I only put SNAIL adhesive to the center part of the leaf so the edges would naturally curl up a little bit.



Stamps:  Gently Falling & Hand-Penned Holidays (both from the mini)

Ink:  Early Espresso, Old Olive, More Mustard, & Cajun Craze Classic ink pads

Paper:  Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Old Olive, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla card stock

Accessories:  Dazzling Details (Mini), Scallop Trim Border Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, and Paper Snips

My First Christmas Stamp-A-Stack of the Year

It's Friday!  Not only that, but it's a 3-day weekend!  Yay!  I hope you all have a wonderful, long weekend!

Today's card is one of the cards that will be made at my Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack (SAS) - Take One.  Everyone that attends will make 4 of this card, and 4 each of 4 other designs.  I'll be sharing the other 4 designs in the coming days.  The SAS will be offered two different nights...Wednesday, September 14 and Friday, September 16.  To find out more, please go to my EVENTS CALENDAR.

I CASEd this card from someone in a swap I was just in.  Her name is Ilene Dack.  I did use different shades of the colors she used, and changed the card up a little bit.  Mine is also a regular card.  Her card actually opens where the purple strip is.  I used the stamp set, Pennant Parade (p. 69).  There are so many different things you can do with this set.  The "Merry Christmas" stamp came from the stamp set, Season of Joy (p. 33).  The middle tree was punched out with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch (p. 213), and I popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 206).  I also added a large rhinestone from the Basic Rhinestones Jewels Pack (p. 198) to the top of the middle tree.  The purple strip was embossed with the new Snow Burst Impressions Folder (p. 33) from the Holiday Mini.
