Lovely Flowers

Hello and welcome to day 4 of this week’s Sale-A-Bration countdown! Today’s card will by my final creation using the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP. I know, sad face L! I really do enjoy using this paper and I could go on, but I’ve got other ideas and more Sale-A-Bration products to share! For this card, I really wanted to show the simplicity in creating a stunning card with a few simple products, including a Q-Tip!

The card base is Calypso Coral cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, and the base layer is Springtime Foils Specialty DSP cut at 4” x 5 ¼”.

When I first started coloring in the flowers with Sponge Daubers, it was to create a soft look and purposely coloring outside the lines, but the control wasn’t what I wanted, so hence a Q-Tip! I actually used Precision Tips to color in the flowers in Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral inks and the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink. I really love how these turned out! I tied a piece of the Shimmer Ribbon in Calypso Coral in a bow around the DSP and stamped the sentiment from the Blossoming Basket stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink, punched the end with the Banner Triple Punch and sponged Calypso Coral ink around the edge. The DSP is adhered to the card base with Snail and then sentiment is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the ribbon.

Spring Fling Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group Spring Fling Blog Hop and giveaway for February. This is my first blog hop and I am excited to be participating with such an incredibly talented group of ladies!

Nothing says spring like a basket of fresh cut flowers and with the Sale-A-Bration second product release, I could not wait to play with the Blossoming Basket stamp set and Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The card base is in Crumb Cake card stock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, the base layer is from the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and then use another piece of Crumb Cake card stock, cut at 4 ¼” x 4 ¼”, which will be used with the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.

On a Whisper White card stock, stamp the flower basket and butterfly images in Memento Ink, letting them completely dry before coloring in with the Stampin’ Blends. For the basket, I used Light Crumb Cake and Bronze, for the flowers and leaves, Light and Dark Pink Pirouette, Light and Dark Calypso Coral, Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, and Light Old Olive, and for the butterfly, Dark Pool Party and Light Bermuda Bay. Both images are then fussy cut out using Paper Snips. The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink on ½” piece of Whisper White card stock with the ends punched out using the Banner Triple Punch. A piece of Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon is added to the bottom of the embossed Crumb Cake card stock.

The card is then put together by adhering the Bubbles & Fizz DSP to the card base, adhere the embossed card stock, and then adhere the basket and flower image. Finally, both the butterfly and the sentiment are adhered with Mini Dimensionals.
