Pierced Blooms

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

This card was made yesterday in my Facebook Live…If you didn’t see it, the edited video is attached below. The idea for this card was CASED from a card I found on Pinterest by Lin of Sending Hugs …. Click HERE to see her page and her card.

I have used the Stampin’ Up! ® Pierced Bloom Dies from the In Bloom Bundle , these are fun dies to play with and I have cut so many flowers I’m sure I will be playing with them again soon. I made a card using the same Bundle only a few weeks ago and you can revisit it HERE

I really love the brightness of this card and the Black and White helps to make the colours ‘POP’ more…don’t you think?

In Bloom

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

I made this card using the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom Bundle with the coordinating Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper from the Jan- Feb Sale-A-Bration

In Bloom Bundle by Stampin' Up!

The Pierced Blooms Dies from this bundle are so much fun. They cut out the flower and leaf shapes as well as leaving stitching lines that give great detail. This is a really fun set to use…a great way to use up all those small scraps of cardstock.

I have used a piece of vellum on top of the Designer Series Paper, this will allow the flowers to be the focal point against the background.

Dandy Garden Suite – Dragonfly Garden

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

The card I have to share with you today is made using products from the Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden Suite. For this card I used the Dragonfly Garden Stamps, Dandy Laser-cut Paper and the Dandy Garden 6 x6″ Designer series Paper. All these products you will find on page 25 of the Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue by Stampin’ Up!

Dragonfly Garden Stamps by Stampin' Up!

This is a simple card to make as the laser-cut paper does all the work for you. The dragonflies are so dainty and they look just like they were fluttering across your page. The sheet of vellum used as an overlay gives the impression that the dragonflies are in the back ground and allows the dragonfly on the sentiment to stand out with out hiding the others.

Dandy Garden Suite

This month our Creativity Abounds is featuring the Dandy Gardens Suite from the Stampin’ Up! 2021 Jan-Jun Mini. For my card I have used the stamps from both of the stamp sets – Garden Wishes and the Dragon Fly Garden.

Dandy Garden by Stampin' Up!

All the stamped images were stamped in Blackberry Bliss and coloured using the Stampin’ Blends. Because the Stampin’ Pads are water based inks you can use them instead of the Memento Tuxedo Black and they won’t bleed.

The Blends colours used are –

  • Mossy Meadow -Light & Dark
  • So Saffron -Light
  • Daffodil Delight -Dark
  • Mango Melody -Light
  • Calypso Coral -Light & Dark

I used the NEW Stampin’ Up! Blending Brushes to blend Smoky Slate and Blackberry Bliss ink around the edges of the Whisper White cardstock and on the sentiment piece as well.

You may be starting here or have come from someone else’s blog – either way there is a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas.
