Flower for Every Season

Hello, my stamping friend.
I am patiently waiting for my new goodies from Annual Catalog to arrive. I am the most excited to use new inks. But for now I want to share a card using Celebrating Sunflowers stamp and 3 new In-Colors: Bumble Bee, Misty Moonlight and Just Jade:

  • Bumble Bee – 4-1/4” x 8” scored at 2-1/2”; 3-5/8” x 3-7/8”, 4-1/8” x 5-3/8” 
  • Misty Moonlight – 3-3/4” X 8” scored at 4” on the long edge 
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 2 ea. 3-1/2” x 3-3/4”; scrap for flower 
  • Designer Series Paper – 5-1/4” x 4”; 2-3/8” x 4” 
  • Ribbon – 10 inches for bow  
How To:
  1. Fold the Bumble Bee card base on score line and burnish with a bone folder. Adhere the large panel of Designer Series Paper to inside of card base and small piece to the top, outside flap.
  2. Stamp two of the sunflowers and leaves in Momento Black ink on one of the Whisper White card stock pieces and color with Stampin’ Blends. Stamp a single sunflower on a scrap of Whisper White card stock, color with Stampin’ Blends and cut out. 
  3. Stamp sentiment in Night of Navy ink at the bottom of the same panel. 
  4. Adhere the single sunflower using Stampin’ Dimensionals on top of the others. 
  5. Adhere the small piece of Bumble Bee card stock to the front of the Misty Moonlight panel. (Note: the inside card will be adhered with the fold at the bottom so that it opens downward. 
  6. Adhere the stamped front image panel on top of the Bumble Bee panel. 
  7. Stamp inside sentiment on the second piece of Whisper White and adhere to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card. Add Gilded Gems to add a little sparkle

Team Stamp It Blog Hop

Hello, my stamping friend. Thank You for stopping by.
I created 2 sets of projects for today's blog hop featuring 2 different suites or products.

First one uses Country Club Suite. Even so I am not a golfer (same with my husband), I absolutely love it. It is so easy to create with this suite. Designer paper is defiantly a star here:

This is a bag created from 2 pieces of  12 x 12 of DSP
 The card is a decoration for the bag. Here is a view when card is removed:
Card by itself:
I am so sad this entire suite of products are retiring! They are available till June 2nd only.

Second set
As my husband is not a golfer - I created another set just for for him using Come Sail Away DSP and Sailing Home Bundle:
 Side view:
Sailing Home stamp and dies are carrying over to new catalog. BUT not as a bundle. So you can get it now for 10% discount. Sadly designer paper is retiring...

Which one do you like the best? Leave a comment below for a chance to win a prize:

For more ideas - continue hoping:

Happy Stamping!

  • DSP: 6 x 5 1/4; cut on 6” side, end up with 3 3/4 x 5 1/4, 1 1/8 x 5 1/4, 2 1/8 x 5 1/4.
  • Whisper White: 1 3/4x 5 1/4
