The Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (#145656) consists of 2 narrow folders so makes it easy to just emboss part of a card front.
I embossed the Whisper White card, then stamped Happy Birthday from the Vertical Greetings stamp set (#c141876, #w141873) with Night Of Navy ink (#126970). This was attached to Real Red card (#106578) then I added the 1/2” Night Of Navy Gingham Ribbon, before attaching this card front to the Night Of Navy base card (#106577). The 2 squares are cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (#145372), and I stamped the flower image from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set (#c139950, #w138694). This was stamped with Night Of Navy ink but I stamped off twice before stamping on the Whisper White card to give a lighter image. The bird was cut with a die from the Birds & Blooms Thinlits (#141477) and attached with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). I Used Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430) to add the Night of Navy square to card.
Enjoy your day.

I will miss these flowers from the Flower Shop stamp set (#c130942, #w130939) as they are retiring, but I am sure there will be something just as nice to replace them.
The flowers were stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink (#141397) onto Whisper White card (#106549). These were punched with the co-ordinating Pansy Punch (#130698). I stamped the flourish from the Falling Flowers stamp set (#139556, #w139553) onto the square piece of Whisper White with Wild Wasabi ink (#126959). I used the Stamparatus for this. I then cut a heart from another piece of Whisper White card using one of the dies from the Sweet & Sassy framelits (#141707). I then placed this on top of the already stamped image, and stamped again, so I could easily position the heart over the top of the card front and have the image lined up. I then cut a slightly larger heart from Flirty Flamingo card (#141421) and attached the 2 hearts together, then attached this to the card front lining up the images. The sentiment (from a retired set, So In Love) was cut with a die from the Petals & More thinlits (#145655) and the detailed piece under the sentiment is also from the same set. I am so pleased to see this set along with the Petal Palette stamp set returning in the new annual catalogue, as it is definitely a favourite of mine. I glued the detailed piece with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309) and added the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The Whisper White 1/4” Organza Ribbon (#145590) was used to make the bow, which I attached with a Mini Glue Dot (#103683). I finished the card by adding Pearl Basic Jewels (#144219). The base card is Flirty Flamingo and the finished card size is 13x13cm.
Have a great day.

Hello and welcome,
The Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack (#144131) will be retiring when this catalogue ends on 31st May to make way for more exciting new papers.
I have attached the Berry Burst DSP onto the Whisper White base card (#106549). A Strip of the Silver Foil Sheet (#132178) was then added to the card, followed by a piece of Berry Burst card (#144249), which was punched on each end with the Banner Triple punch (#138292). The Silver Metallic Foil Doilie (#138392) was then attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The sentiment is from the Ribbon Of Courage stamp set (#c143855, #w143852) and stamped with Berry Burst ink (#144083). I punched this with the Everyday Label Punch (#144668) and sponged the edges with Berry Burst ink. A Pearl Basic Jewel (#144219 was added to the sentiment, and Petal Passion Embellishments were glued to the card using the Fine-Tip glue Pen (#138309). The bow was made with the Silver Bakers Twine (#145569) and attached with a Mini Glue Dot (#103683).
Have a great weekend.

That’s all for now.
The Daisy Delight Bundle (#p145361) consists of the Daisy Delight stamp set (#p143669) and the Daisy Punch (#143713) and have been used to stamp and punch this flower.
To make the daisy, just stamp and punch twice, then put together with Stampin’Dimensionals (#104430), offsetting the petals. I used Crushed Curry ink (#131173) on Crushed Curry card (#131288). The base card is also Crushed Curry and the card front is Very Vanilla (#106550). I stamped Thank You from the Daisy Delight stamp set with Crushed Curry ink. The ovals were cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706) and the Stitched Shapes Framelits (#145372). I embossed the card front with the Softly Fally Embossing Folder 139672). The leaves were cut with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies (#145655) from Wild Wasbi card (#111850). I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) on the Wild Wasabi card to make it easy to adhere these leaves to the card. A Gold Faceted Gem (#144141) was added to the centre of the daisy, and I added Glitter Enamel Dots (#144200) around the oval.
That’s all for now.

Isn’t this a beautiful card for a very special occasion.
The Stamparatus (which will be available from 1st June) was very useful when stamping the ornate corners. I placed the image in place for one corner, then all I had to do is rotate the card to stamp each corner image. So easy!! These images and the sentiment are from the Inspired Events stamp set (#p143693) using Peekaboo Peach ink (#141398). The cardstock is Whisper White (#106549) and Peekaboo Peach (#141422). The squares were cut with the Layering Squares Framelits (#141708) and the cross is cut with a die from the Cross Of Hope Framelits (#145654). I glued the cross with the Fine Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The top square was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The finished card size is 15x15cm so I will make an envelope using the Envelope Punch Board (#133774).
Hope your day is great.

Yes, another card with butterflies with another favourite colour combination - yellow and black.
The cardstock for this card is Crushed Curry (#131288), Basic Black (#121688), Shimmery White (#121717) and Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper (@144118). Firstly I cut the butterfly with the Move Me Thinlits (143732) on the Shimmery White cardfront, then cut another one to place over the top. I used a piece of the Designer Series Paper under the butterfly as well as on top of the cardfront which I stamped the sentiment onto. Thinking Of You is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set (p143726) and stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (132708). The small butterflies are stamped with Crushed Curry ink (#131173). These butterflies are from the You Move Me stamp set (#144002) and cut with a die from Move Me Thinlits. These were attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). I used the Pick A Pattern Washi Tape (#144166) on the DSP and a Glitter Enamel Dot (144200) on the butterfly. I also added some of the Wink Of Stella (#141897) to the butterfly.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Ladies & Guys,
Most people would know by now that I love butterflies and purple, and as Elegant Egglplant, Wisteria Wonder and the Move Me Thinlits are retiring, I couldn’t resist making a card using these favourite products.
I used Elegant Eggplant card (#108614) for the base card as well as the solid part of the butterfly. Wisteria Wonder card (#124389) was used for the detailed butterfly and the butterflies were cut with the Move Me Thinlits143732). The card front is Whisper White (#106549). I stamped the images from Timeless Textures stamp set (#c140517, #w140514) using Wisteria Wonder ink (#126985). Then using the Pattern Party Decorative Masks (#144103) and a Palette Knife (#142808), I spread the Shimmery White Embossing Paste (#145645) over the card. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Day stamp set (#c145915, #w145912) and stamped with Elegant Eggplant ink (#126969). The die to cut this is from the Petal & More Thinlits Dies (#145655) and attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The butterflies were also attached with Dimensionals, then I finished the card by glueing the sequins from the Metallics Assortment (#144214) using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309).
Have a great day.
