Stampin’ Up Sunday – Falling Flowers

Good morning!!

 

Danni and I are bringing back her old Stampin’ Up Sunday series! Today we are using the pretty Falling Flowers stamp set!  You can check out her post HERE!

 

This is the pile of flowers that I stamped, colored and die cut using the stamp set and coordinating die set, May Flowers. It took me HOURS!  Some of the flowers were stamped on Whisper White cardstock and lightly watercolored using the same color that I stamped the flowers/leaves in.

I then built several card bases using the same colors – Old Olive, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant and the new In-Color Sweet Sugarplum.  From there I started building my cards, adding in die cuts from the Layering Squares and Circles framelits.  In total I made 4 cards and a bookmark. I’ll share the first two cards today!

Sentiments were added using the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I needed something really small to stamp in there. I tried going with no sentiments but I didn’t like the look.

 

I’ll share the other cards soon – hopefully in the next few days!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello and Happy November (several days late lol…)

 

Today I made a card for a black & white swap. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out!

 

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Falling Flowers stamp set, Butterfly Basics stamp set and Butterflies thinlits. The layout is from Sketch~N~Scrap’s card sketch posted yesterday.

I stamped the flourish and the sentiment and then cut them out with a Layering Oval framelit.  Some texture was added to the white panel with the Brick Wall embossing folder. I then added the butterfly and several sequins to finish off the card.

Happy Halloween!

 

Today I am sharing the card I made for my nephew. Looking forward to seeing him tonight! He is going to be Cat Boy from PJ Masks.

 

Once again I used the super cute Lawn Fawn Happy Howloween stamp set and the Boos & Brews Doodlebug Design paper. The sketch I used is the last one from Pals Paper Arts, so sad to see this challenge blog closing!

I mixed a few papers and some washi tape from the same Doodlebug collection to make this card. It’s a little busy for me but I am sure my nephew will like it 🙂

 

Here is the sketch~

Happy 1st Howl-o-ween!

Hi!

 

Tonight I am sharing the Halloween card I made for my niece.  I can’t wait to see her tomorrow. She is going to be an owl.

I used my new Lawn Fawn Happy Howloween stamp set with new Doodlebug Design paper, Boos & Brews, along with the Mojo Monday sketch.  The ghosts are from a Taylored Expression die set.  I added the “1st” from an old PTI set called Make a Wish Additions.

 

Here is the sketch~
