Card #3

Today is one of the cards I created a couple of weeks ago using the “Falling Flowers” Bundle 20170325_145307_resizedblogfrom the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue.  The bundle includes the Stamp Set & the matching “May Flowers” Framelits.

It is now on its way to Amber, one of my nieces who celebrate their 30th birthday this week.  Crikey, where does the time go?  I can see them as tiny little babies!

I actually did this for a challenge & now as I didn’t know what one it was, I missed out on posting it, but thought I would still share with you.

Card #2

My card today is one I created for the challenge over at Stampin’ Girls Gone Wild last 20170325_113624_resizedblogweekend.  I set myself to use the supplies already sitting on my desk as well as create a card for Dannielle who along with Amber (be sure to come back later on to check out her card) celebrate their 30th birthdays.

I will admit I wasn’t too sure how these colours would work, but I’m loving the In Colours on this card – Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder, Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach Inks along with Cucumber Crush, Very Vanilla & Watermelon Wonder Cardstock.

I’ve used the Inks & Blender Pen to add colour to my flowers while at the same time, leaving the leaf bare.

Since the photo was taken, I added another Pearl Basic Jewel to the centre of the Watermelon Wonder Flower as I didn’t see it was missing until I went to post it.  Happy to say it was received with delight.

FMS 280

I sat down yesterday & created a heap of birthday cards – April is a busy Birthday month for me & I wanted to be ready for posting today.

My card today is one I created for the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches which once 20170325_090445_resizedblogagain I am just getting there before it closes.  It will be posted out to a friend this arvo.

I love the “Falling Flowers” Stamp Set along with the coordinating “May Flowers” Framelits so not only did I challenge myself to create with them yesterday but I’m happy to say that I created 3 cards with the Bundle & with what supplies I had sitting on my desk at the time but I will show you them over the next week or so.

A challenge is always a great starting point for inspiration especially if you are stuck for ideas.  Be sure to pop on over to FMS & play along or just to see the lovely creations.  Thanks again for a great challenge.

Falling Flowers

G’day Friends,

It has seemed like forever since my last post, so fingers crossed, I will be posting again  as from this week.

I thought I would share with you a card I did for my friend & downline some time ago.20160911_103016_resizedblog  Naomi held her very first Workshop way back in early October & it was a huge success.  Good on you Naomi.  Bring on 2017!

Sorry there is no tutorial for you to print today as the card was rushed off in the mail the day I created it.  I am going to try & remember what I did from the photo, so please be kind to me.

I used the “Ghosting” Technique on the panel of my card which is Technique Treat #6.

I randomy stamped the large image from the “Falling Flowers” Stamp Set onto a piece of Whisper White Card in VersaMark Ink allowing it to dry a little. With a Stamping Sponge, I sponged a piece of Whisper White Card with Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight & Pumpkin Pie Inks before adhering to a panel of Basic Black Card.  The piece was layered onto a piece of Whisper White before layering onto the Base Card – Basic Black.

I stamped the Flower Images & the Leaf Images onto scraps of Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured them with my Blender Pen using Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Inks.  The were then die cut with the coordinating “May Flowers” Framelits by running through the Big Shot before adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals & Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

From memory I may have even gone over the flowers with the Clear Wink of Stella to give it a lift.

It is a very simple card but I think with the sponged panel it gives it a “WOW” factor.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
