Floral Essence Fun

I wanted to make a birthday card for a friend and I seemed to naturally gravitate to the Floral Essence stamp set. So pretty!

Design Notes for Floral Essence Card:

I think one of the first things I notice about a card are the colors. The colors I used for this card happened a little by chance. I knew I wanted to use the Rococo Rose and Pear Pizzazz. The piece of Pool Party card stock was sitting on my desk from an another project but seemed just right. Like this color combination?

 

I had some fun with the Detailed Trio Punch. First I rounded one of the corners, then added a little floral like touch with another punch. What a fun tool – really three punches in one!

The Floral Essence stamp set has some great sentiments but since I wanted a birthday sentiment, I used something from the Parcels & Petals stamp set.

Around the Corner with Birthday Greetings

I seem to be in a clean and simple card mode these days. The Around the Corner stamp set made this birthday card pretty easy.

Design Notes for Around the Corner Card:

The Around the Corner stamp set is so cute. There are all kinds of borders, some with sentiments, and little flowers, etc.

Isn’t it cute! After I stamped the Whisper White piece, I cut out the “happy” and “birthday” from a piece of Terracotta Tile card stock using the Well Written dies. The butterfly is one of the other dies from same set. Finally, I added just a bit of the darling Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

Seaside Notions – My Newest Fav!

I’m not a faithful stamp lover. It seems my favorite stamp set changes from week to week. Oh well. This week my favorite stamp set is Seaside Notions. The image stamps are just delightful and the sentiment messages and fonts are great.

The idea for the frame is really part of a challenge. This week over at Global Design Project, the challenge is to CASE the Designer. I chose to use the layout elements from her card.

 

Global Design Challenge,#GDP196

Design Notes for Seaside Notions Card:

The first thing I did when creating this card was to smear a bit of the Shimmery White Embossing Paste on the card front piece. Good to do this a bit ahead as it takes a few minutes to dry. Next I stamped the lovely sea horse. i realized I wanted two and used my Stamparatus to make the second, mirror image. If you look at the Stampin’ Up! catalog (page 139) they show you just how to do that. It’s easy! Really!

After I fussy cut the sea horses, I added a single shell to the front. Of course, I stamped some shells on the envelope.

Pretty Pressed Petals Paper

Have you seen the new Pressed Petals Designer Paper? It’s beautiful! I used some of the paper to create a very quick birthday card.

Don’t you love it?

 

Design Notes for Pressed Petals Card:

This card is possibly one of the easiest cards I have ever made. Really! I started out by using some of the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment and punched it out with the Timeless Label Punch. Finally, I popped  it up on some Dimensionals and done!

But really, you can’t miss with this beautiful paper. Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper is a lightweight paper with photographic images of real pressed petals on one side and vintage designs on the other. One design has distinct designs to cut out and use on card fronts. And, bonus, the package has 24 sheets!

Perennial Essence Suite is Sweet!

As soon as I saw the Perennial Essence suite of products I knew it would be one of my favorites. The Perennial Essence Paper is truly dreamy, the stamps are beautiful. Then there is a punch, ribbon and vellum. You can’t ask for more! Here’s a birthday card made with some of the suite products.

Design Notes for Perennial Essence Suite Card:

I think the card has an elegant look. The Perennial Essence Designer Paper is one of the most beautiful I’ve seen. Here’s a close up of the paper.

Doesn’t it remind you of a Monet painting?

One of the things I like best about the stamp set is that there are two different kinds of flowers in the same set. I used the softer flower stamped off in the background. The other flower is made from using the three petal punch stamp on vellum. I used the Perennial Flower Punch to punch out the petal. When you are stamping on vellum, use care. It takes a while for the ink to dry. You can move this along (if you are impatient like myself) by hitting it with the Heat Tool for a few seconds.

Finally, I also used the softer flower on the envelope. Just the right touch, I think.

Purchase List for Perennial Essence Suite Card:

It might be a bit confusing but the stamp set and Bundle (get 10% off) are called Floral Essence. The items as a collection, with the Designer Paper, vellum, ribbons, etc, are know as Perennial Essence.

This and That:

If you are reading this post early enough, you should be able to get some Trimmer Blades. Recall that Stampin’ Up! removed the Trimmer from the catalog because of production issues. Many of us love our trimmer and need blades to hold us until a new trimmer is offered. (We hope that will be soon!) If you are looking for blades, today is the day. They will be available at 10AM (Mountain time, Noon Eastern Daylight time). There is a limit of 3 packages that can be ordered. Don’t wait!!!! The item number is 126995.

Ready to order? Please use the Host Code for June, which is TRSWEMYM. If on-line orders total $150 or more, you will be eligible to win the Host Benefits for those orders. I’ll also send along a little gift with your thank you card for any purchases over $50.
