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:

Petite Pairs

One of the many things I love about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is receiving our monthly Stampin' Success magazine, fulled with lots of wonderful business tips, as well as fun stamping projects.  Here's a card I copied out of the latest issue.  I began with a Whisper White card stock base, and stamped the polka dot border from Borderlines in Old Olive Classic ink.  The next strip was created by punching Melon Mambo card stock with the Lace Ribbon Border Punch then weaving in some Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.  Underneath that is a piece of designer paper in Daffodil Delight from the Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  The flower is created by punching 3 flowers from the Fancy Flowers Punch, using Dimensionals and stacking them together.  Circle Circus stamp set created the Daffodil Delight border on the flower center, and I stamped the sentiment from Petite Pairs in Melon Mambo Classic Ink, then punched out with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch.  So cute and quick!
