Bright and Cheery Slimline Card featuring In Bloom Bundle

Thursday, January 07, 2021

Hey crafty friend!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Today I'm sharing a card I made using the new In Bloom Bundle from the Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue. When I saw the gorgeous Pierced Blooms Dies that coordinate with the In Bloom Stamp Set, I knew exactly what I was going to do first!

I'm a HUGE fan of black and white backgrounds with a pop of colour. In fact, every time I get a new set of flower dies - cause you can't just have one, right? - I make a black and white card with bright flowers. For the slimline card layout, I played along with Freshly Made Sketches, I just love this layout!

Here's the sketch:

Here are the cards I made:

Don't they just make you so happy? I love the fun background pattern with a hint of Magenta Madness peeking out between the layers. Those pierced flowers are just so gorgeous. And I just LOVE the fun and playful! I'm saving one for sure for a special friend who I know is going to crush a huge goal soon :) Can't wait to give it to her!

I really can't decide which background I love more, they're both so eye catching! These papers are from the new True Love Designer Series Paper, which is a full pack of black and white patterns...oh my heart! In addition to various geometric patterns, there are gorgeous floral patterns just begging to be coloured. On my card, I've also used the new Matte Black Dots - they add a fun, modern look to the projects. I see myself ordering many packs of these in the next few months!

Here's a video of the Facebook Live Replay of me creating this card, enjoy!

If you live in Canada, don't already have a demonstrator and would like to order any of these products, you can do so from my Online Store, I would love to be your demonstrator! 

Please leave a comment below and let me know which of the two backgrounds you like better! Thank you so much for stopping by today, have a fabulous day!

All-Star Tutorial Blog Hop: Fine Art Floral

Wednesday, January 06, 2021

Hey there (again) crafty friends! 

You might be thinking: two blog posts in one day? Can't be! Well, it is...

I was honoured to be invited to join the All-Star Tutorial Bundle Group for the next six months and can I say, I am OVER THE MOON excited?! So many of the stampers in this group are an inspiration for me and my crafting so to be able to create and share my work with you alongside these amazing peeps is just so awesome! Today, we are inviting you to join us for a Blog Hop, featuring projects from the Fine Art Floral Suite in the new January to June Mini Catalogue.  If you wish to subscribe to receive these amazing monthly tutorials or just wish to try it for the month of January, you'll find details HERE.

This suite of products is simply stunning with gorgeous handpainted floral designer series paper, beautiful ribbon and a versatile stamp set with coordinating dies. Check out some of the gorgeous samples using this suite:

Here's the project I'm sharing with you today

I can't lie, I'm kinda smitten by how it turned out. It's not at all the colour combination I had originally envisioned for the card but I do love it! I love the bright Poppy Parade card base paired with the subtle pink (Petal Pink) and green (Mossy Meadow). I stamped the large flower from the set in Poppy Parade to add a tone on tone background. I wanted to add some tiny hits of gold to the card and used my Wink of Stella Brush to do so, along with some heat embossing (thank you) and gold pearls.

I love die cut words, so when I saw the 'just want to say' in this die set, I was sold! It pairs so well with all of the sentiments in the set, although they can be used without the dies too. I used a pretty detailed border from the Ornate Borders dies and added the Fine Art Floral ribbon for some texture and extra sparkle.

  • Poppy Parade card base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
