Beautiful Friendship

To day I am featuring the new stamp set called Beautiful Friendship. It is found on page 123 of the annual catalogue. This is a new set in the distINKtive line.
I like the way these flowers look stamped in muted tones, like I have done on this card.

 The colours I used are Seaside Spray, Highland Heather, Soft Seafoam and Daffodil Delight (stamped off). I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo black and used the Layering Ovals dies to cut it out.
The soft, muted tones look very pretty.
The card dimensions are:
card base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
card panel: 5" x 4 3/4"

Pretty Purple Daisies

The first Monday of every month I offer Coffee and a Card at my studio. Tonight we created a pretty card using the Daisy Lane stamp set and matching punches. We also used some of the Purple Posy designer Series paper.

 I added some of the matching designer series paper to the inside of the envelope...I think it adds a really special touch!
 The flowers were stamped in Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather and then punched out with their matching punches. I used dimensionals between the petals of each flower to add well, dimension. :)

A few basic jewel rhinestones here and there add some sparkle. Sometimes the simple cards turn out to be the best! I love how this came together. To see how to create this card from start to finish, watch my video on You tube. Here are the measurements:
-card base whisper white thick 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
-purple posy card stock 5" x 3 3/4"
-whisper white front panel 5 1/4" x 4"
-purple posy designer series paper 3/4" x 4"

Vintage Versailles

Hello from hot and muggy Ontario, Canada. I just finished creating this card using the Very Versailles and A Little Lace stamp sets from Stampin' Up! and I am in love with it. Does that ever happen to you? You make something and it turns out better than you expected and you just fall in love with it?
I am usually not a vintage girl, but this set is so fun to play with.
Let's take a look at the card:

 The colours I used are Smokey Slate, Basic Grey, and Petal Pink. I also used the Lacy background die to create the scalloped edge. To see how I made this card from start to finish, check out my you tube video.

Here is a close up of the ribbon. I used the Petal Pink striped organdy ribbon and made a bow. Then I used my heat tool to crinkle it up. I LOVE how it turned out.

Vintage card using Pressed Petals

I decided to use some product that is really outside my usual style, and is rather vintage-y. I bought the Pressed Petals designer series paper and specialty washi tape, and it came today, so I decided to see what I could come up with. The washi tape is cool in that it is all individual petals that you peel off and use to create a flower.

 As you can see the petals come together to form a flower. I added the perennial essence floral center.
To see how I made this card from start to finish, check out my video on my You Tube channel.

Butterfly Wishes

Today I spent time creating with the new Butterfly Wishes distINKtive stamp set. The detail in the distINKtive stamps is amazing! The trick is to not over ink your images. Some people use daubers to ink the stamps with, but I had a hard time doing that, so I used my stampin' write markers. Here is the finished card:

 The markers I used on the branch are:
-Poppy Parade
-Soft Suede
-Old Olive

For the butterfly, I stamped it with Daffodil Delight, then used Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede markers to add colour to the ends of the wings.

Floral Essence and Rococo Rose

I am in love with the new catalogue! Especially the layout, where all the bundles are shown at the beginning of the catalogue.
You can see how this card was made on my You Tube channel. 
For this card I used the Floral Essence bundle, and 2 of the new In Colors; Rococo Rose (#150080) and Terracotta Tile (#150086), with Pear Pizzazz  (#147104)for the leaves.
It doesn't show it in the catalogue, but the leaf punch  (#144667) fits the leaf in this stamp set!

 I added the Perennial Essence Floral Centers (#149442) to the center of the flower, and it gives that extra dimension. Plus, it is a great tactile feature...fuzzy, like flock.
The sentiment is from another new stamp set called Here's a Card (149438). I stamped it, then cut it out with the Stitched Nested Label die (149638).
I like the colour combination as well. The Rococo Rose and Terracotta Tile go well together.
