Here's our amazing Creativity Abounds Design Team!

The theme for our blog hop this month is the 2021-2023 In Colors from Stampin' Up!.  All of our projects feature at least one of the new colours and you are going to love them!

For my card, I used the Quiet Meadow Bundle and paired Fresh Freesia with Crumb Cake.  I love the Quiet Meadow Bundle and I created a stencil when I cut out the pieces for my card and used it to stencil some detail as a backdrop for the beautiful flower and sprig pieces.

Isn't this pretty!

  1. Cut Fresh Freesia cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Crumb Cake cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Basic White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
  4. Cut out 2 sprigs from Crumb Cake cardstock and 1 flower from Fresh Freesia cardstock using dies.
  5. Use the Fresh Freesia piece that the flower was cut from to stencil a flower on the right hand side of the Crumb Cake cardstock - use Crumb Cake ink and a Blending Brush or Sponge Dauber.
  6. Stencil some sprigs on the Basic White piece using one of the other pieces.
  7. Tear about 1" from the right hand side of the Basic White cardstock piece and sponge the edges with Crumb Cake Ink using a Blending Brush or Sponge Dauber.
  8. Adhere to the Crumb Cake cardstock using Stampin' Seal.
  9. Adhere the 2 sprigs on to the piece using Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.
  10. Adhere the Fresh Freesia flower using Mini Dimensionals (you may have to cut your Dimensionals)
  11. Wrap Crumb Cake Baker's Twine around bottom of piece and adhere ends to the back.
  12. Adhere to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  13. Stamp sentiment using Fresh Freesia ink on a scrap of Fresh Freesia cardstock.
  14. Adhere to card base over twine using Dimensionals.
