Lots of Blossoms!

I finally got to making all of my Leadership 2012 make & take projects – I never get them finished at the actual event – and I wanted to share a couple of them with you.  I love everything about the one above – the color scheme, the layout and all the different products that went into it.  In fact, all of the projects I'm going to show you are created with some terrific coordinating products found in the Occasions Mini Catalog – Mixed Bunch stamp set, Blossom Punch and Blossom Builders Designer Printed Kit.  I just love using these three products together!  You'll notice on this card that there are 3 different flowers stacked up to create the central motif.  The Rich Razzleberry flower and the Real Red polka dot flower are from the Blossom Builders Kit – the Daffodil Delight and Whisper White flower in the middle was created by stamping the Mixed Bunch stamp set image and then punching with the Blossom Punch.

Here's another great card using the Mixed Bunch stamp set for the background tone-on-tone flowers and the three central flowers from the Blossom Builders Kit.  Buttons come from the Brights Button Pack, and Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine is strung through the center of the middle button.  The banner that "wonderful" is stamped on even comes in the Blossom Builders Kit, and the stamp itself is from Loving Thoughts stamp set.

I thought this card was really unusual and very pretty.  Color scheme is Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Basic Gray designer paper from the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper.  There's Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine wrapped twice around the  designer paper, and the tag is stamped with the "happiness" sentiment from Loving Thoughts stamp set.  The Rich Razzleberry flower in the back is a flower from Blossom Builders Designer Printed Kit, as are the fun Pink Rhinestones – you get 30 pink rhinestones in 2 different sizes with the kit!  Notice how we used the large pink rhinestone in the center then put lots of the tiny ones around it.  The middle flower in the layer is stamped from Mixed Bunch stamp set on Very Vanilla card stock using Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink, and the top small Very Vanilla flower is also from the Blossom Builders Kit.

Mixed Bunch Blossom

We're getting together today as a team of demonstrators for an all-day Stamp Fest – stamping from 10AM to 9PM!  A portion of the evening is devoted to doing shoe box swaps.  Each person designs a card and brings enough supplies for everyone to make.  It's so much fun to see what everyone comes up with.  Here's the card I designed. 

  • Color scheme is Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo.
  • Sentiment comes from Loving Thoughts stamp set in the Occasions Mini catalog.
  • Flower is from Mixed Bunch stamp set (also in the Occasions Mini catalog) and uses VersaMark and Stampin' Pastels
  • Mixed Bunch has a coordinating punch – Blossom Punch – to make quick work of cutting it out
  • Center of flower is a knotted piece of 1/4" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon brought through (from the bottom) a hole in the 3/4" Chocolate Chip circle center
