May Flowers

Hi,

Yes, another quick and easy card. I was going to just use DSP and stamps but I couldn't help myself and I have added a flower cut with a framelit, and also an embellishment.

 

The base card is Perfect Plum (#108615) and I stamped on Very Vanilla card (#106550). The Designer Series Paper is Old Olive from the Brights DSP Stack (#138434). The leaves from the Number Of Years stamp set (#p140653) were stamped with Old Olive ink (#126953). Just Because is from the Vertical Greetings stamp set (#c141876, #w141873) and this was stamped with Perfect Plum ink (#126963). I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (#101049) to stamp the sentiment so I could guarantee it was straight.. The flower is cut using a framelit from the May Flowers Framelits (#140276), using Perfect Plum card then I added a Falling In Love embellishment (#142791) to the flower.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Falling In Love DSP

Hello everyone,

Here's another super easy card using DSP and a stamp.

 

I have used Very Vanilla (#106550) for the base card. Next I used a piece of the Moroccan Designer Series Paper (#141645), followed by the Calypso Coral card (#124392), then Falling In Love DSP (#142788) on the top. The sentiment is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set (#c141534, #w141531) and I stamped this with Calypso Coral ink (#126983). The oval was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (#145372), then attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

That's all for today.
Have a great week.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Big On Birthdays

Hello and welcome,

Over the next couple of weeks I am going to make very easy cards, and most will use Designer Series Paper. All the current DSP will retire and there will be a great range of new DSP in the new catalogue which will be available from 1st June.  You probably know that I love to use embossing powders, so I am going to try to make cards with mainly stamping and DSP and no embossing. I'll see how I go. Here's my first one which was super quick and easy.

 

The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550) and the DSP is from the Moroccan Designer Series Paper (#141645). Happy Birthday is from the Big On Birthdays stamp set (#p142877) and stamped with Dapper Denim ink (#141394). The ribbon is Dapper Denim 3/8" Ruched Ribbon (#141424). Can't get much quicker than that!

The ribbon and DSP are both retiring.

Also, over the next couple of weeks, I won't get a chance to post a card each day but will as often as possible.

Have a great weekend.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Sympathy card

Hi again,

I like to used the Shimmery White card (#121717) for special cards so I have used it for this Sympathy card which I need for a special friend. I used the full sheet of A4 and folded it in half to make a larger card.

 

I used the Gold Foil Sheets (#132622) to cut the scalloped oval for the sentiment and around the embossed rectangular piece. This was embossed with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#141493). The flower is from Birthday Blooms stamp set (#c140658) and this was heat embossed with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129), then handcut and attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). With Sympathy is from the Rose Wonder stamp set (#p140697) and also heat embossed. The oval framelits used to cut this are the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (#145372) and the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706). The used the Gold 5/8" Satin Ribbon.

Have a great day.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

The cardstock is Cherry Cobbler (#121681) and Whisper White (#106549). The Designer Series Paper is from the Pop Of Pink Specialty DSP (#141648). I embossed the Whisper White card using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#127821), then sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966). Happy Birthday from the Guy Greetings stamp set (#c138828, #w138825, #p137178) was also stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink. The tools are all cut from Silver Foil Sheets (#132178) using the Build It Framelits Dies, and I added Cherry Cobbler card to the handle of the screwdriver.

So Detailed Thinlits Dies

Hello again,

I knew I didn't have much time today, so went through my box of goodies I have cut out but not used and found this flower and detailed cutouts and thought I could make a quick card with that.

 

I heat embossed the sentiment from Butterfly Basics (#c138816, #w138813, #p137154) using VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129). Then, using the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#139672), I embossed the Whisper White Card (#106549). The Gold Foil Sheet (#132622) was cut with the So Detailed Thinlits Dies (#142751). The flower from the Flower Shop stamp set (#c130942, #w130939) was also stamped with VersaMark and Gold Embossing powder on Vellum card (#106584), then punched with the Pansy Punch (#130698). The flower was coloured on the back of the flower using Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Marker from the Brights collection (#131262). The base card is Bermuda Bay (#131286).

Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all the mums.


Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Flourish Thinlits

Welcome friends,

The background for this card is from the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack (#141642).

 

I heat embossed "celebrate" with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129). Celebrate is from the Happy Celebrations Stamp set (#p143012). The flowers and leaves are all cut using the Flourish Thinlits (#141478). The Gold Foil Sheets (#132622) were used for the leaves, and for the flowers I used Tangerine Tango card (#116206) and Crushed Curry card (#131288). These were all glued with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550).

The serene scenery DSP is retiring. You will still find the other products in the new catalogue.

Big On Birthdays

Hello Ladies & Guys,

The Big On Birthdays stamp set (#p142877) has a great range of birthday sentiments including the one on this card.

 

This was stamped with Dapper Denim ink (#141394). The background was stamped with the Watercolour Wash stamp (#c139538, #w138704), using So Saffron ink (#126957) on Whisper White card (#106549). The other cardstock is So Saffron (#108611) and Dapper Denim (#141419). The flower and leaves are from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set (#c141534, #w141531) and stamped with Dapper Denim and Garden Green ink (#126973). I cut the flower and leaves by hand and attached the flower with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The ribbon is Dapper Denim 3/8" Ruched Ribbon (#141424). 
Tip: If you aren't getting a good stamped image especially when using photopolymer stamps with a more solid image like the flower, place the card onto a Stampin' Pierce Mat, then stamp your image. You will usually get a perfect stamped image.


Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Special Reason & Stylish Stems

Hi and welcome again,

Life has been a bit hectic lately, so apologies for not having a new card every day. Today I have used the Special Reason Bundle (#c144720, #w144719) which is retiring. (Very sad as I love this set.).

 

It's Mother's Day next week so here is an easy card to make. The cardstock is Peekaboo Peach (#141422) and Whisper White (#106549). The background has been stamped using an image from Awesomely Artistic stamp set (#c139950, #w138694) with Wild Wasabi ink (#126959). The flowers are stamped using Peekaboo Peach ink (#141398), with the lighter flower stamped using the stamping off method. The darker flower was attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The circles were cut with the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705) and the greeting is from the Circle of Spring stamp set (#138964). This stamp set is also retiring. I added some sparkle to the darker flower using the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897). 

Enjoy your week.


Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Flower Shop

Hello friends,

I haven't used this Emerald Envy cardstock (#141420) very much, but I used it on a card I made a few days ago and wondered why I haven't used it more.

 

The Designer Series Paper is from the Moroccan DSP (#141645). I have stamped on Very Vanilla card (#106550). The stamp sets used are Falling Flowers (#c139556, #w139553) for the flourish, Flower Shop (#c130942, #w130939) for the larger flower, Petite Petals (#c133155, #w133152) for the smaller flower and Awesomely Artistic (#c139950, #w138694) for the strip along the bottom and "friend". The inks are Emerald Envy (#141396), Watermelon Wonder (#138323) and Crumb Cake (#126975). The larger flower was punched with the Pansy Punch (#130698) and the small flower with the Petite Petals punch (#133322). The flowers were attached using Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) and I added a White Perfect Accent (#138416) to the flower centre.

Have a great weekend.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

The border piece was cut with the Flourish Thinlits (#141478) and the butterflies were cut with the Bold Butterfly Framelits (#138135) and the Butterflies Thinlits (#137360).

The stamp sets for the sentiments are Rose Wonder (#p140697) for "With Sympathy", Butterfly Basics stamp set (#c138816, #w138813, #p137154) for "Sending Wishes your Way", Circle Of Spring stamp set (#p138964) for "Thank You" and "Happy Birthday to You", and  "A Day To Celebrate" is from the So In Love stamp set (#143112).

The Moroccan DSP and Traveler stamp set are both retiring.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Flower Shop

Welcome,

I have stamped these flowers from the Flower Shop stamp set (#130939) onto Vellum cardstock (#106584) then punched them with the Pansy Punch (#130698).

 

I heat embossed the flowers with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129) which was heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). To colour these flowers I used Stampin' Write Markers in Bermuda Bay from the Brights collection (#131259),  Calypso Coral from the Subtles collection (#131263) and Crushed Curry from the Regals Collection (#131262). Just colour the flowers on the back of the flower and the colour shows through for a great finish. I embossed the Whisper White card (#106549) using the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#141493). The ribbon was from Sale-a-bration so now retired. The square and circle was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (#145372). The greeting from Grateful Bunch stamp set (#p140691) was also heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I attached the flowers with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) and Mini Glue Dots (#103683).

The only retiring product here is Grateful Bunch stamp set.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!
