Blossoming Basket

Hello, my stamping friend.
Blossoming basket bundle is my favorite offering from Sale-A-Bration. It hits all major points - beautiful flower image, you can color stamped image, create a texture with dynamic embossing folder and it is FREE (with $100 order).
I used this bundle last week during my Crafting Happy Hour class and it was a hit.
Card on the bottom right was the original card we created, but with just extra set of blends - you can create more color combos.
I used very simple template that will allow me to cut multiples without any leftover paper.
Soft Suede - 8 1/2 x 5 1/5; 4 1/4 x 3 1/2;
Power Pink: 4 x 5 1/5
Whisper White: 4 1/4 x 3 1/2
I used sift suede ink to stamp a basket as I like soft color. I used crumb cake blends to color the basket and Calypso Coral/Daffodil Delight for flowers. If you decide to use darker colors for flowers - you may want to use Early Espresso for stamping.

I just noticed in this picture that i used deposed side, haha!
This is amazing set and you only have by March 31st to get it for free. Even so embossing folder will be available to buy in June, the stamp set will not.
Happy Stamping!

Little Birdie

Hello, my stamping friend.
Last week I had my monthly Crafting Happy Hour class at local wine shop (we stamp and drink wine!)
Here is one of the cards we made that everybody loved, probably because it is perfect for anybody.
I created few more to have them on hands:
  • Bermuda Bay: 5 ½” x 8 ½” , 2 ¾ x 2 ¾” 
  • Daffodil Delight: 4” x 5 ¼”
  • Whisper White: 3 x 3 scrap for die cutting 
  • Glimmer paper: 1 x 4” and scarp for punching 
  1. Adhere daffodil delight piece to Bermuda bay card front. Then adhere 1 x 4 glimmer paper in the middle. 
  2. Using second biggest stitched square framelit – cut whisper white piece. 
  3. Using black ink – stamp sentiment in bottom right corner of the white piece, and using Old Olive ink – the branch on top of the sentiment. Then with black ink stamp a bird and balloon (only bottom portion of the balloon will fit). Using blends – color the bird and branch. 
  4. Adhere stamped piece to Bermuda bay square, adhere with dimensionals to the center of the card. Punch the smaller balloon from the scrap of glimmer paper. Adhere with dimensional over the stamped balloon.

Case Monday - Amazing You

Hello my stamping friend.
Today I am sharing set of cards that was designed based on a "cased" layout and recreated in multiple colors.
I just love the font of this stamp set and how it coordinates with framelits. Each card uses Lemon Lime twist for green accent and have exact the same layout and stamping portion.
Powder Pink and Soft Sky:
Wisteria Wonder and Daffodil Delight:
Calypso Coral and Peekaboo Peach
Sweet Sugarplum - 2 different sentiments:
Stamp flower 2 times and cut it - first flower cut the entire one and second - just the middle 4 petals make sure you cutting them to the center (so each petal is only attached to the center).
Because I mailed the cards and did not want them to be bulky - i used center of die-cut letter O for the center of the flower.
