Doily and Flowers

Here's a card I taught at my August workshops.  I had lots of design help from my friend Sharon V. – I modeled it after a swap I received from her and just changed up the colors.  The card starts off with Whisper White card stock with Hello, Doily background stamped in Soft Suede Classic Ink.  Next I created the pretty flower using Calypso Coral card stock and Fun Flowers die with the Big Shot.  The center is a punch from Boho Blossoms Punch.  I stacked them one on top of the other and adhered them using dimensionals.  The leave is cut from Old Olive card stock and the Leaves #2 die.  The sentiment was created using the Lots of Tags Sizzlits die in Soft Suede card stock.  I stamped the greeting using Petite Pairs and punched that out with the XL Oval Punch.  A few extra flowers punched from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack fill in some negative space.  The decorative strip is created with punching some Blushing Bride card stock with the Scallop Trim Border Punch on both sides then a piece of designer paper from the Mocha Morning Specialty paper pack Basic Pearls complete the centers of all the flowers.  Do you notice some sparkle and shine?  I used a few drops of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint in a small bottle of rubbing alcohol, shook it up really well and spritzed the flower.

Here's Sharon's original swap (minus the greeting – don't have a picture with it on!) using a bit different color scheme with Concord Crush, Always Artichoke and Pretty in Pink:

Scrapbooking with Flirtatious

Here's a 12" x 12" scrapbook page of my darling granddaughter, Quinn, using the Flirtatious Product Suite.  I love that all the coordination is done for us with these beautiful products!  The color combo is definitely "girly" – Wisteria Wonder, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight.  I started with Wisteria Wonder 12"x12" card stock, stamped tone on tone with the Hello, Doily background stamp.  At the bottom I added rows of designer paper from the Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  The strip of Daffodil Delight designer paper is punched with the Lace Ribbon Border Punch and some 1/8" Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon is threaded through.  I stamped three of the images from Delicate Doilies stamp set and punched them out with various circle punches.  The top one is backed by a Pumpkin Pie doily found in the Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper.  All have Basic Rhinestone Jewels in the center.  I added some Bitty Buttons backed with card stock punched from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack to give the clear buttons color.  The various words come from Fabulous Phrases stamp set.  The caption underneath the picture is computer generated onto Whisper White card stock, then punched out with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch.  In the top right corner of the picture I added Whisper White 5/8" Satin Ribbon layered on top with some Melon Mambo 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon.  They're held in place with a Whisper White 5/8" Jumbo Brad that's topped off with a Rhinestone.
