FRIDAY FAVOURITES – FLOWERS!

Today I am reflecting on a few of my favourite Flower stamp setsthat are retiring VERY soon.  So many beautiful sets.

BLOOMS AND WISHES

I am late to the party with this stamp set.  It sat on my shelf uninked for nearly a year.  And now it is going.  I am sad. 😦

You can find the details for this post to make the 50th Eclipse card -> HERE.

ROSE WONDER

I am sad to see this set go.  I love the bold flower. So many ways to use this set.  I love the verses too. This set is one I might have to keep in my stash.  The sentiments for Weddings and Sympathy are very special.  There is not a set like it I think.  If you haven’t got this set already then be sure to grab it.  The dies to match are beautiful too.  Really.   You have to get on to it.

These are just some of the cards I have made.

Sponged Background

This background is sponged and then lightly spritzed with water to create a mottled effect.  For the full details on how to make it then head to this post -> HERE.

ONE DIE TWO WAYS – With just one diecut I created these 2 cards.  One (right) the diecut was placed over the white card as a mask and sponged over.  For the other card (left) I used the sponged diecut from the first card to adhere straight to a new card.  Find all the details on these cards -> HERE.

BIRTHDAY BLOSSOMS

Another beautiful set.  I heat embossed the larger flowers in white Embossing powder on vellum.  The smaller flowers were heat embossed in white on the Cherry Cobbler card.  Full details for this card can be found -> HERE.

You can find another card using this set -> HERE (the same post as the Rose Wonder spritzed card above).

Also, a Tri-Fold card with this set.  Full details -> HERE

TWO 90TH BIRTHDAY!

I had the pleasure of making 2 special 90th Birthday cards the last couple of weeks.  I thought I would show you them.

This first one requested by a friend for a lovely old friend of hers.

I pulled out the Number of Years set and the Large Numbers Framelits for it.  The card was inspired by one on Pinterest.  The “90” needed something to lift it so I added a square cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits in Copper Foil and added a few loops with the Copper Thread. The sentiment is from the Blooms and Wishes set.

This next card I sent to a special lady.  I didn’t know her but I know what a milestone 90 is and I heard she was going to be having a very quiet birthday.  I couldn’t let this special milestone slip by.

I added a piece of the Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP to a white card base.  Cut a square with the Stitched Shapes Framelits in Vellum to sit the silver “90” on.  It’s hard to adhere vellum so I added a couple of dabs with Snail Adhesive under where the numbers would sit. Then sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  

Two special cards for 2 lovely ladies.  I hope they had a lovely celebration in the end.

Have a wonderful week.

A 50TH ECLIPSE CARD WITH BLOOMS AND WISHES!

A friend of mine turned 50 this week and we went to her birthday celebrations last night.  Of course I wanted to make a card but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming with what stamps to use or what colours.  In our team group this week we have had a challenge to use a stamp set we haven’t used before.  I could choose from a few different ones here.  I have a number still uninked!! I went with the Blooms and Wishes set and used the Eclipse technique.

The colours used are Sweet Sugarplum, Fresh Fig, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz and Lemon Lime Twist.  I picked those colours from a Colour combination off Pinterest.  I added a little bling with the Rhinestones.

Hope your weekend is going great.  Today I have been at a Christmas market all day so it was a busy one but always great talking to people about stamping right. 🙂
