Stampin’ Up! MORE Blossoms

Where do you get your inspiration?  Have you ever used a card that you made previously to inspire a new creation?  I used this card  as a jumping off point for today’s Mixed Bunch card.

Aren’t these colors beautiful?  Wisteria Wonder, Peach Parfait and Pool Party – beautiful!  I love the soft colors and elegance of this card and it was surprisingly simple to make.

The Whisper White background is embossed with the Big Shot and Finial Press Textured Embossing Folder.  The blossoms were stamped tone on tone.  And aren’t the lovely pearls the perfect touch?

Stampin’ Up! Summer Smooches with Colorful Birds

I loved these cute little birds and their fun cages the very first time I laid eyes on the Aviary stamp set!  This made it from my wish list  to my home thanks to my sister Kari, who gave it to me for my birthday!  (Yes, I have a wish list too!)  Kari is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator also.

The beautiful Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper inspired this bright, happy card made with the Aviary stamp set.

When using punches, you would stamp first and then punch it out looking through the punch ‘window’.  When using the Top Note Bigz Die, I cut my shape and then stamp the images.  It was easy to get good placement with the clear-mount stamps.  I stamped a sample on a scrap paper first to decide on my layout, then cut my shape and added the stamped images.

The middle bird cage was stamped first, then I masked the cage with a post-it note and stamped the stand so that it ended at the base of the cage.  (The stand is taller than I needed and would have stamped right through the cage.)

I wanted to add ribbon wrapped around the top note, but I didn’t want to cover the cages so I used an x-acto knife to slice a ribbon slot on either side of the image.  (I don’t know why the ribbon came out such a funky color in the photo.  It looks MUCH better in real life-I promise.)

And the final step is adding bling.  I generously added rhinestones to the cages.  Love it!!

Stunning Love

“Stunning!”  That’s how a friend described the background of this card at my stamp camp on Tuesday.  And those stunning results are easily achieved with the Finial Press Textured Embossing folder.  The same embossing folder was used to create the Cherry Cobbler heart.    After punching it out the the textured cardstock with the large heart punchthe heart’s surface was run across a white craft pad to create the contrast.

The old style large heart punch AND scallop oval punch are currently on clearance while supplies last.  Click the clearance button on the far sidebar to see additional bargains!  And remember the SAB Outlined Occasions stamp set featured here is FREE with a qualifying order until March 31st.

The Love tag was created with the scallop oval punch and the extra large oval punch.  Love was punched with the scallop oval punch and then layered on top of the large oval punch.  Then I punched a scallop oval of Cherry Cobbler clipped it in half and adherred it under the tag hanging out on the ends with brads to decorate it.

The black gingham ribbon is no longer available but the 1/8″ black taffeta ribbon is a great alternative!
