Blooming Birthday

Dear Crafters,

In January, I made a similar card to this one, but here I have used some brighter colours.

I started with a black card base and added some Bermuda Bay DSP.

Next I stamped the images onto Whisper White card stock using the Memento Black Inkpad. The stems are from the Flower Patch stamp set, as is the sentiment, but those flowers are actually from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. Yes, it is that “wheel” looking stamp that we all looked at and wondered what on earth it goes with in the theme of the balloon celebration stamps.

#BalloonCelebration #occasions2016 #stampinup

The flowers are coloured with the Stampin’ Write Markers, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise. I stamped the dotty circle image onto vellum and punched it out with the 3/4″ circle punch.

I added each vellum circle with a glue dot and then added a large pearl to the centre of each flower.

Check out that gorgeous white jute ribbon behind, adding the perfect amount of texture!!!

All Abloom with Flower Shop

Dear Crafters,

Well my summer holidays are over  but I want to share one more card with you using the All Abloom Designer Paper Stack.

I have bundled it up with the Flower Shop stamps and coordinating punch.

Flowers make me happy and this card certainly is a happy card.

Flower Patch

The base card is Mossy Meadow with layers of All Abloom Designer Paper.

The flowers are stamped using the Flower Shop stamp set in Strawberry Slush and Blushing Bride inks and punched out using the coordinating Pansy Punch.

Flower Patch

I used dimensionals to add the flowers to the card, slightly overlapping them.

I added the sentiment from the Flower Patch stamp set and added some pearls to finish it off.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope helps tie it all together as seen in the first photo.

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this creation.

Birthday, feminine

Flower Patch

Hello Crafters,

This morning I share with you a card I have made for the mum of a close friend of mine. I always remember her birthday because it is Halloween, but today it is a special birthday. I cannot believe that she is the age she is, so I will just call it a big ‘0’ birthday! Anyway, happy big ‘0’ birthday Mrs Nerra!!!!!

I know how much she loves her garden and her flowers, so I had to use the Flower Patch and coordinating Flower Fair Framelits.

Flower Patch

The base Bermuda Bay and embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder. The banners are framelits and I used them with the Strawberry Slush DSP Stack and some vellum.

I stamped the Flower Patch Stamps with Strawberry Slush and Blushing Bride inks and the leaves are Pistachio Pudding and Bermuda Bay. These are all die cut using the Flower Fair Framelits.

I also added some gold sequins for a bit of bling and the Happy Blooming Birthday sentiment was just perfect for this occasion!

Flower Patch

I added some of the stamps to the bottom corner of the inside of the card. I always decorate the inside as it just ties the whole card together.

Feathery Inspiration JAI#236

Hello Crafters,

Melbourne is a very windy day today and hoping to reach 29 degrees, so I will quickly share a card I have made for the Just Add Ink ‘Feathery Inspiration‘ Challenge before heading out to a family BBQ!

I love this colour combination and needed to make a card for my friends birthday next week, and guess what her favourite colours are? Yes, blues and greens!!!

Flower Patch Peacock

I started with a card base of Bermuda Bay and a layer of coordinating DSP. I then stamped the Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamps starting with Pool Party, then Pistachio Pudding then Bermuda Bay. I used the coordinating dies Flower Fair to die cut the images. The body of the peacock is Pacific Point card stock.

Flower Patch Peacock

I used the 1/2″ & 3/8″ circle punches and the heart is from the Owl Builder Punch.

I added some rhinestones to the feathers for some more interest and who doesn’t love a bit of bling?!!!.

I added the sentiment from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set in Pacific Point and used the small oval punch.

Peacock Flower Patch

The inside of the card I stamped an image from the Bordering Blooms stamp set in Memento Black ink then coloured with the coordinating Blendabilities.

Please leave a comment below, if you think my card met this challenge.

Flower Patch Farewell

Hello Crafters,

Flower Patch would have to be one of my top 3 favourite stamp sets in the current annual catalogue and here is another card I have made for a work colleague who is sadly leaving us this week 😦

Flower Patch

I used Strawberry Slush card stock to create the base of the card. The next layer is white card stock and I stamped the leaves directly onto it in the top left corner.

I stamped the flowers onto white card using strawberry slush and pink pirouette inkpads before die cutting them out! I layered the blooms with dimensionals and added the sequin trim to the back before using more dimensionals to add it to the card front. I also added a single gold sequin to the centre of the flower!

Flower Patch

Flower Patch stamp set comes with 19 stamps in photopolymer (completely clear) to use on clear blocks and also has matching framelits called Flower Fair. These can be purchased in a bundle saving you 15%. Awesome value for a such a versatile set!

Here is another similar card I made using Marina Mist and Calypso Coral for the flower.

Flower Patch

Hello Crafters,

I think you are going to like this one using the new Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set and the coordinating Flower Fair Framelits Dies!

 

Flower Patch

Photopolymer stamps are completely clear, so when you mount them onto your clear block, you can see exactly where you are stamping!

The Flower Fair Framelits dies coordinate so you can cut out each of the many blooms available in this set.

The Designer Series Paper is part of the Brights Collection.

Flower Patch

The inkpad colours I used were Pistachio Pudding & Wild Wasabi for the leaves, Marina Mist, Pacific Point, Strawberry Slush, Rich Razzleberry & Tangelo Twist.

I used dimensionals to raise each layer of the flowers to give them a real life look!

Flower Patch

I finished it off with some of the new Daffodil Delight Cotton ribbon.

This 19 piece stamp set and coordinating framelits can be purchased as a bundle saving you 15% for only $74.75.

Flower Patch with a twist!

Hello Crafters,

First of all today, I want to wish my gorgeous girl, Annika a very happy 8th birthday. I can’t believe we are so blessed to have had you for 2920 days in our lives already!

To commemorate this special day, I wanted to share with you some of her favourite colours and they can be found on one very beautiful bird that I grew up with in our neighbourhood living so close to the Cataract Gorge in Launceston, Tasmania.

No, I don’t live in Tassie anymore, but I still have the most vivid memories as a child growing up in such a gorgeous environment and these stunning birds wandering around.

Yes, it is the peacock!

Flower Patch Peacock

I have created this using the Flower Patch Stamp Set and the Flower Fair framelits dies which can be purchased as bundle saving you a huge 15%.

I also used the Owl punch.

I should have photographed him before I put it into the frame to stop the glare off the glass, but I think you can see him clearly enough.

Flower Patch Peacock

I used Pool Party as the base of the feathers, then Pistachio Pudding then Bermuda Bay. The body of the peacock is Pacific Point cardstock and I sponged the edges with the same colour ink and a sponge dauber. The circles are punched from Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake and a Pacific Point heart with a tiny Bermuda Bay dot.

c

Rhinestones were added to the feathers for a bit of bling as these birds are such a showy animal!

Please leave a message to let me know what you think of my design.
