Just You Today With Flowering Fields

 


I wanted to use use more of the gorgeous DSP called flowering Fields before it retires at the end of June. I used one print cut into three panels placed on a piece of Evening Evergreen card stock and then a Sweet Sorbet base. I wrapped some windowpane ribbon in Evening Evergreen around and tied before attaching. I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Tulips in Sweet Sorbet ink on white card stock then cut it out with a Sweet Sorbet circle from the Stylish Shapes dies. 
Have a wonderful holiday wekeend and thanks for stopping by!

Smooshing Technique Just For You


Here is another wonderful design by Emma Goddard from the UK as part of the Brian and Emma's super awesome fun time card kits for last month. It features the smooshing technique for the background. Emma had done hers with just the Basic Gray color ink but I had to add Crushed Curry ink, too.  I then took a piece of clear acetate and added the one color of ink straight from the ink pad and then sprayed it once with water. I then smooshed around on a large clear block before laying the  acetate piece on my white background card stock. I cleaned the acetate and did the same thing with the second color of ink.  The other elelements cut in the kit were from the Ranunculus dies in white, and silver foil. I did some blending with the Curry ink on the detailed floral die. I stamped the sentiment from Celebrating You set in Basic Gray and hand snipped the strip of white card stock. A few of the Basic Gray matte dots finished it off. 
Hope you have a wonderful Thursday and thanks for stopping by!

Gifts With Cup Of Tea

 



I posted this 4 1/4" square card a few weeks ago and here is when I used it to give a friend with a candle as a gift in a gift bag I decorated to match. I bought the gift bag in bulk on Amazon and used the Fresh Freesia gingham DSP called Pansy Petals which is now retired to add to the front of the bag. I also tied a little Fresh Freesia open weave ribbon to the handle. I cut the tea cup from the Teacup dies in Night Of Navy for the solid one and Fresh Freesia card stock for the detailed one. After layering those together, I stamped the leaves from the Cup Of Tea set in Granny Apple Green and cut them with the same die set. I added a pastel pearl to the cup to finish it off. 
Hope you have a lovely Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!

Thinking Of Teacups

 



I love the Poppy Parade with the new in color Starry Sky. Here I grabbed some soon to retire designer paper for my Poppy Parade polka dot cup called Flowering Fields DSP.  I cut the cup from the paper with the Teacup dies as I also did for the other cup I stamped in Starry Sky ink and the stems in Old Olive ink along with the flowers in Poppy Parade ink all on white card stock. I added them to the panel of Basic White card stock I stamped with the sentiment from Season Of Chic set (love the font) in Starry Sky ink on the bottom before layering on the Tea Boutique card & envelope in Starry Sky.  I finished it off with some Starry Sky matte dots. 
I have sent this to my mom to wish her a Happy Memorial Day as she loves red, white and blue together!
Have a awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!

In Every Way

 



I had some lovely flowers I colored from the Happiness Abounds set stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on white card stock colored with the Stampin Blends in Polished Pink and Sweet Sorbet that were just waiting to pop on a teacup after I cut them with the matching Blossoming Happiness dies.
 I also had several leaves from the same set I colored with Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends markers. I pulled out another Tea Boutique card & envelope in Sweet Sorbet and added the piece of Basic Black and Basic White card stocks. I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink from the Happiness Abounds set on the bottom. I also cut some vellum from the Forever Flourishing dies to give more texture/volume. Last, all I had to do was stamp my tea cup from Cup Of Tea set in Memento Black on white card stock and cut it out with the Teacup dies and add some black matte dots. 
Hope you have a beautiful Monday!

Best Wishes With A Teacup

 



I sat down last weekend and stamped a lot of these flowers and leaves from the Happiness Abounds set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock so I could binge watch stuff and colr them with my Stampin Blends markers. I then cut them all out along with lots flowers and leaves from the designer paper with the matching dies called Blossoming Happiness. It makes it great now when I sit down like to make this card and I could grab three of the same flowers along with a few leaves ready for me to add to my teacup. I cut the teacup in Orchid Oasis card stock-both a solid one and a detailed one to overlay from the Teacup dies. I placed the cup on a white piece of card stock I had stamped with the sentiment from Happiness Abounds in black ink. I had colored my leaves in Granny Apple Green and my flowers with a mix of light Polished pink and light Flirty Flamingo blends. I popped them on my cup and added the Orchid Oasis matte dot. Then I used a Orchid Oasis card base from the Tea Boutique cards & envelopes set part of the Tea Boutique suite. You can see the matching envelope in the second photo. 

Hope you enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by!

FF0109 and GDP343 A Happiness Birthday

 






I am playing along with the theme challenge over at global-design-project.com and the challenge over at festivefridaychallenge.com today with flowers, hive, bees and embossing. I really liked Sharon's layout so I cut the flowers and leaves with the Happiness Blossoming dies from the beautiful designer paper called Hues Of Happiness. I picked the two shades of blue to mix together and then added them all on the white piece of card stock ran through with the Hive 3D embossing folder. I added the background to a piece of Pool Party card stock and a Night Of Navy base.  I stamped the sentiment from the Happiness Abounds set in Night Of Navy ink on a white strip of card stock. I finished it off with a few bee trinkets I had left after they retired. 
Hope you have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!
