Field Flowers

I've got several retiring set cards that I want to show you before the curtain goes down on these wonderful stamp sets.   This Field Flower card has several layers on the flowers and lots of Dazzling Details.  I should have taken a picture from the side - but each flower is stamped twice and cut apart.  The flowers are done in Crumb Cake and when I added the Dazzling Details the color became almost golden.

Stamp Set - Field Flowers
Cardstock - Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Neutral DSP
Ink - Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Etc - Lace ribbon, Dazzling Details

Here are this week's deals - and don't forget Free Shipping through the 25th!  Hugs, Fran

Backyard Basic Trellis

It's all retiring!  Yikes!  This card was inspired by one I saw on Splitcoast.  I used the same layout but changed the stamps and used the Framelits to die cut.  The other card had a beautiful tulip watercolored onto the front of the card.  The deep, side punch is a Martha Stewart punch that I used for a wedding invitation a year or two ago. 

Stamp Sets - Backyard Basics, Blessings from heaven
Cardstock - Whisper White
Ink - Jet Black Stazon
Stampin Write Markers - Crisp Cantaloupe, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Pool Party
Etc - Backyard Basics Framlits, MS punch, Dazzling Details

Don't forget free shipping this week only!  Hugs, Fran

Birthday Cake

This is a card we did yesterday at my birthday stamp a stack.  The biggest question was "where did the scalloped circle come from."  It's from the pennant die.  This card is a case of a card from last year with a few changes - the colors and dsp of course, the flags on the side using the cute little banner punch - and I rounded the corners using the Envelope Punch Board!  I it when tools make my life easier!

Stamp Set - Embellished Event
Card Stock - Very Vanilla, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Birthday Basics DSP
Stampin Write Markers - Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit
Etc - Pennant die, small banner punch, pearls, Envelope Punch Board, Boho Blossoms punch

It's fun to re-do an old design!  Hugs, Fran

Stampin Up and Project Life

Stampin Up and Project Life!  A win-win combination!

Butterflies and Roses

Continue the fun!  I used the Karen Burniston's Accordion Circle die again to create a Mother's day card .  This card features the Spiral Rose die - expanded with the blossom punch - and the butterfly from Backyard Basics on the front.  The piece underneath the rose is from Daydream Medallions.  It looks so pretty on the Happy Watercolor paper.  The instructions for the spiral rose can be found here. 

This is the card opened - The center sentiment is from Lots of Thanks - a great sentiment for my mom!  I continued with Daydream Medallions and butterflies.  To finish the card I covered the back with more Happy Watercolor DSP and put 2 butterflies so that the wings from the front are covered.

Stamp Sets - Backyard Basics, Lots of Thanks, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock - Smokey Slate, Whisper White, Happy Watercolor DSP
Ink - Smokey Slate, Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe
Etc - Karen Burniston Circle Accordion die and edges, Backyard Basics framelits, Spiral rose die, Blossom Punch, Daydream Medallion framelit

Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe and Smokey Slate is a great color combo!  Hugs, Fran
