I know its June with "Blossoms In Bloom"

The 2020-2021 Annual Catalog went live this week and I am so excited.  So much to share with all the great new products.  Here is one of new favorites, Blossoms In Bloom Bundle, which I featured on my Facebook Live this week.  Or watch a slighted edited version on my YouTube Channel

This first project is clean and simple.

  • Card Base:    Thick Whisper White cut 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 and scored at 4-1/4 on the long side. 
  • Make sure use your Stampin' Trimmer Score Blade or the Score Board.  If you do not pre-score your Thick Whisper White, when you fold in half, the paper may crack at the fold.
  • I cut the two large Bloom Dies in Mint Macaron and Whisper White and glued together. 
  • Scrap Whisper White for 'Happy Birthday' from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set, matted on Mint Macaron, accented with two Rhinestones. 
  • The card is completed with a bow made from the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon

My second project, well, I just absolutely LOVE it!  I Never do blue flowers... well, hardly ever, and I think these came out great.  You'll have to catch my video Here to see how I colored them with three different ink colors.

Ornate Style Embossed Watercolor

Hello friends.  I am super excited to share these with you today.  Each card features the floral image from Ornate Style stamp set along with Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Shimmer White card stock.  If you have not noticed, I am on a bit of a watercolor kick lately. 

Make sure to watch my YouTube Video where I water colored with Stampin' UP! Colored Pencils. 

So my projects I am sharing today were done with Aqua Painters.  I picked up color from the lid of my ink pad.  With the ink pad closed, press the center of the lid... give it a little squeeze and when you open your ink pad, there will be ink on the inside lid.  

I wanted to show 3 Different Effects when you use different embossing powders.  Even though Stampin' Up! is retiring black, I went ahead and did anyways.  As an alternative, you can use Stazon Ink!  It is permanent and great for water-coloring.

It is such an awesome product suite.  Not to mention, I have been waiting for Stampin' Up! to come out with beautiful layering dies like this.  (hint:  there is more to come).  Like I said in my previous post, the possibilities are endless. 

So in this card project, the focus is on the Gold Foil strip on the left.

That is a die cut within a die cut!  But wait... there's more so keep reading.

Ornate Garden Suite - Part 2

Just a bit ago, I shared three projects with you using the Ornate Garden Suite of products.  If you missed that post, CLICK HERE to catch my "Introduction" to the suite.  I show you everything that is included in the entire suite in my video, and there are a ton of goodies. 

I have to tell you, when I first received my suite of products, I thought to myself, "man.... there is a lot going on in here!".  Detailed dies, stamp sets, paper, ribbon, and more.  And that is why I have decided to break this down into a few posts.  So again, be sure to catch my introduction by going to the above link. 

In my first project below, I love how Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam compliment each other.    The details from the Ornate Layers Dies add such an elegance.  I added a layer of Whisper White in the middle to add some interest by breaking up the colors.   Oh Darn!  I should have ran that white through the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing folder (included in product suite)...  Or even the bottom layer of Soft Sea Foam.

Look.... the possibilities are endless and I am still designing in my head! 

PicsArt_05-05-09.48.52

Mint Macaron is the card base (5-1/2 x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4) and then I just alternated the colored layers using Ornate Layers Dies.  The piece of Whisper White in between the layers measures 3-3/8 x 2-1/8.  The 'Thanks' is from Ornate Thanks stamp set and stamped in Mint Macaron on Whisper White that is 2-1/4 x 1" with rounded corners.

Sorry about the 'shine' or light reflection in some pictures.  I want to make sure you can see the Gold Foil in the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper
