By now you are probably aware that Stampin’ Blends are now available for everyone. I have to say that I am loving them & so will you!
My card is one I sent off in the mail yesterday to thank a friend (one I went to school with & haven’t seen for many years) for a special service we attended a couple of days ago. I do hope she likes it!
The card has actually been cased from Page 10I of the Annual Catalogue. Mind you, it doesn’t look anything like the original but it was a good starting point as I wanted it to be happy & bright, plus I wanted to play with the Stampin’ Blends.
To create my card, I used the Light Calypso Coral to colour the flowers followed by the Dark Daffodil Delight & then the Light Daffodil Delight. I’m loving how they turned out. The leaves were created using the leaf image from Painted Harvest & punched with the coordinating Leaf Punch. Both are available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue & are available as a Bundle.
Although I have used a couple of items that have retired (easily replaced by current product) I’m very happy with my card today, but please let me know what you think.
If you click on the link above the card, you will be able to download a tutorial so that you can create your own. It includes all the measurements (metric & imperial) along with a list of products.

287. You’ve Got This
I am sharing with you today one of the cards we will be creating in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class. We would love for you to come along & create with us.
I saw this fold over on Pinterest a little while ago but now of course I am unable to find the link, but I managed to do one better & actually found the blog. Thank you so much Jeanie for your inspiration even though it was one created in error, I loved that it was so different!
I’ve used the lovely Painted Harvest Suite to create our card. The Suite includes the Painted Harvest Stamp Set, Leaf Punch which can be purchased as a Bundle & the Painted Autumn DSP. It took me a little time to actually purchase this set, but I must tell you, it is so much fun playing with it. I especially love the fact that it gives you a gorgeous watercolur look to all your creations.
Tips to help you with the 2-Step Stampin’ set –
- Stamp the centre first. This helps to centre your flower
- Stamp the larger flower next but in a lighter contrasting ink. This flower will look like it may be missing part of the stamp, but this is ok
- Stamp the smaller flower 2nd & in a darker contrasting ink. You will be amazed at how the flower will come together
- For more definition, stamp the larger flower once again in the same colour ink as the first time. Your flower will just about pop off your Card
I do hope the ladies are going to love creating this card.

If you pop back in a few days time, I will also share with you another one I created using the same fold.
