Detailed Dogwood with Softy Sophisticated Embossing

Hello stamping friends.  I wanted to share this beautiful card I received in the mail.  It features several great products that are not in my stash.  I know, hard to believe, right?  I'm a floral girl at heart so I am surprised that I didn't Earn the Detailed Dogwood stamp set or the Softly Sophisticated  Bundle for FREE with Sale-a-Bration (SAB).  Let's take a look at the card first. 

#creativecardcloset #detaileddogwood

First off, this was sent to me by Linda Bauwin at Stamping with Linda.  Thank you Linda!  Love you too!

She stamped the dogwood flower on Thick Basic White card base.  I believe she colored with her Blends and although you can't see it in the photo, the flowers are covered in shimmer from the Wink-a-Stella marker.  Love that effect.  

The frame was cut with the "Perennial Postage Dies" and embossed with the Softly Sophisticated (SAB item) embossing folder.  

Love you words is very unique!  It comes from the "Thoughtful Moments" Hybrid Embossing Folder.  HYBRID = Dies & Embossing Folding that go together!!!

Linda topped off this lovely card with a few Champagne Iridescent Dots for some bling.

Forever Love Suite Collection

Do I have a suite collection for you!  By my blog title, you can see it is called the Forever Love Suite Collection. 

I love when there is a suite collection that includes so much that you almost do not need another thing to make beautiful projects.  Well, except some ink, stamping block(s) and a Cut-n-Emboss machine.  But other than that, this collection has beautiful foil embossed papers, shimmery ribbon, glittering embellishments, foil card bases AND beautiful laser cut envelopes!  Phew!  Amazing. 

I used everything in the suite for the project:

Jungle Pals are Adorable

Hi there!  And welcome back to today's share... which includes 3 Sale-a-Bration items!  I went outside my normal box and chose the Jungle Pals stamp set, dies, and paired with the Softly Stippled designer series paper.  

Why did I say I went outside my normal box?  Well, I just love pretty and florals, so when I do anything else, I consider that going outside my box.  How do you think I did?


Here are the Sale-a-Bration earn levels:

  • Jungle Pals stamp set - earn Free with a $50 product purchase
  • Jungle Pals dies - earn Free with a $100 product purchase
  • Softly Stippled DSP - earn Free with a $50 product purchase

A few card details:

  • My card base is Thick Basic White, cover in a piece of the Softly Stippled DSP. 
  • The tree die and leaves are Wild Wheat card stock
  • I used the Deckled Circle Dies for the Hello
  • Above circles are embellished with the Champagne Iridescent Dots

I colored both animals with my Stampin' Blend markers and am so happy with how they turned out.    I am calling the animal on top a sloth, would you agree?  Of course, after thinking about it, maybe he should be more of a gray color.  Lets pretend he was playing in the mud. LOL!
