Pop of Petals

I'm a little late with my blog post as I wanted to finish the second card I was planning using the Pop of Petals Bundle.  I love stamp sets and punches that are coordinating.  This bundle is perfect for creating very pretty flower cards.

My first card is a monochromatic card that features the bundle as well as two new colours that came out in the Annual Catalogue - Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape.  I'm not usually into purple, but I love how pretty this card is.

It's pretty quick and easy to stamp and punch the flowers and create this card.  Don't you love the two shades of purple together.

Product List

Now for the second card that took a little bit longer.  A friend of mine asked me to make a card for his Mom's 90th Birthday in August.  I decided that this bundle was perfect for a special card.  I'd also been thinking about using the 12" x 12" sheets of laser cut Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper as a background.  The card is 6" x 6" and has quite a few layers and embellishments so probably not a card you can mail, but since I know it will be hand delivered, it works fine!

Here's the special card I made for a special lady - even has a coordinating envelope.  Isn't it pretty!



The pink flowers on the front and inside the card were a bit of a happy accident - I decided to add some Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers.  I thought the ink was dry as the flowers had sat for quite a while as I put the card together.  I guess not, so the ink ran a bit, but I love the effect!  Popped the colour up just a bit and made it easy to choose a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Nature's Poem suite to make the envelope.

Country Road

Todays' card features a stamp set that caught my eye on my first peruse through the new Annual Catalogue - Country Road.  I'm not really into horses or country decor, but for some reason a card came to mind when I saw this set.

I made this card for a recent event I attended with other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators on Vancouver Island.  I was really happy with how it turned out and I especially like the combination of Merry Merlot (one of the new colours in the Neutral Collection) with Crumb Cake.


I haven't done this sponging technique for a while, but it's really easy to do.  I tore a small strip of card stock and then laid it across the card and sponged using a sponge dauber and a Crumb Cake stamp pad.  It gives the card an "old, distressed" feel.  At one point I had considered making it look really distressed by crumpling the  Very Vanilla card stock after stamping and sponging, but I decided I liked the look without doing that!

This card is perfect for a masculine birthday!

Accented Bloom

Today I'm sharing some cards made using the Accented Bloom stamp set in the new Annual Catalogue.  This is such a versatile stamp set and is a great set that will allow you to make quick and easy cards.

First a card that features Grapefruit Grove and Gray Granite - both new colours in the catalogue.

This card can be made in any colour and will be just as beautiful.  Check out the Faceted Dots that add just a little bit of extra bling.  It's hard to see in the picture, but Shimmery White cardstock was used.

Now for a card that shows off this stamp set with white embossed images.  Isn't this so pretty!  Don't you love the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon!

Rooted in Nature

Today I'm sharing one of my favourite suites from the new catalogue - Rooted in Nature.  I'm not sure if it is because of the leaves or because of the colours in the Designer Series Paper, but I can't get enough of this suite!  I attended an event for demonstrators on Vancouver Island on Saturday and this card was the Make and Take I created.  It was fun to try a new technique - the Pocket Card.

Don't you love the colour combination - Tranquil Tide, Grapefruit Grove and Crumb Cake!

The inside card pulls out to write on or to attach a gift card to.



Product List
Here's the instructions for the card:
  1. Tranquil Tide Cardstock Base (8-1/2" X 11")  Cut in half lengthwise at 4 1/4".  Score both pieces at 5 1/2" 
  2. Cut from the score line to the opposite corner on both pieces of cardstock
  3. Attach the two pieces together using Tear and Tape adhesive with the flaps to the outside and at the bottom of the card
  4. Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper 4" x 5 1/4" and cut in half on the diagonal.  Attach one to each flap on the front of the card
  5. Fold over one flap and attach along the bottom using Tear and Tape adhesive.  Then attach the other flap.
  6. Cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  7. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 3 3/4" x 5"
  8. Punch out a tab using the Circle Tab Punch.  Adhere it to the Crumb Cake card stock.  Make sure it doesn't stick out to far so that you can get the card in an envelope easily.
  9. Stamp images on Whisper White paper and adhere to Crumb Cake card stock
  10. Wrap a 1" x 12" piece of Designer Series Paper around card and adhere to make belly band.
  11. Stamp leaf images and cut out using Big Shot - I stamped all leaves in Crumb Cake on Whisper White and Crumb Cake card stock.
  12. Adhere leaves to belly band.  Adhere a leave trinket to the front.  Adhere a small bow to the front.

Paper and Ribbon Share


This year I'm offering a paper and ribbon share from the new Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue.  You're going to love all of the new designer series papers and ribbons in the catalogues!  I know I do!  For this ribbon and paper share, I've selected a sampler from the 29 new patterned papers and 35 new ribbons and trim. If you were to purchase all the Designer Series Paper in my offering it would cost you $335 and the ribbon would cost you $345 so it's so much better to join the share and get a little bit of everything. 

Here's how it works: 
I purchase all the paper and ribbons and divide it between the members of the share. There are 8 members for each share so as soon as I have 8 people it will form a group. I have focussed my share on 29 ribbons and 16 papers and you will receive a piece of each paper and a sample of each ribbon for a much lower price! You can join either ribbon or paper shares or BOTH! You will receive a total of 96 sheets of Designer Series Paper cut to 6" x 6" for a cost of $43 plus mailing if needed ($5).You will receive a total of 45 yards of ribbon at a cost of $43 plus mailing ($5).  I will contact you to arrange your payment once you have signed up.
