cards, Stampin' Up!


I have had this card sitting here for a while now waiting patiently in line to share with you. I started this card LAST NOVEMBER at Onstage! I just needed to finish it off but I didn’t know what to do with it.  It was quite a few months later that I thought I would tackle it. So here is the finished card.


I was pleased with the end result.  I have used the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper and the Botanical Blooms stamp set.  I don’t have either of these but these little bits were from Onstage.

I stamped the lined pattern onto a piece of Whisper White and adhered this straight on to the Designer Series Paper. I matted this piece on to Hello Honey card.  Did you notice the piece of Designer Series Paper?  Some of the leaf prints from the Botanical Blooms stamp set were stamped on to the paper.

The greeting is from Celebrate Today set and I pierced some holes either side of the greeting and then wrapped around some white Baker’s Twine around the card before it was all adhered to the Mossy Meadow base.  A flower was cut from the Designer Series Paper using the Botanical Builder Framelits.

Have you got the Botanical Builders Framelits yet?  I have seen so many gorgeous creations with these dies.  You can put so many different flowers together and I really love the leaf edge die.

Buy them all together in the bundle and save money BEFORE THE END OF THE MONTH!  Bundle price is $87.75. (AUS).

We had a 90th Birthday party to go to last weekend. No it wasn’t the Queen’s 😉  This was a family friend so it was lovely to celebrate with her.  Of course I had to make a card.


Using the retiring Blackberry Bliss cardstock on the Thick Whisper White base.  I added Blushing Bride and Blackberry Bliss flowers cut with the Botanical Builders Framelits and I used Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.  I cut a glittery ’90’ from Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper with the Large Numbers Framelits. A special card for a special lady.

cards, Stampin' Up!


I had some creative time yesterday just to play.  It was so good.  I don’t have a lot of occasions to do this for a whole day.  Good for the soul 🙂

After I made some customer Thank You cards (which I will show you next post) I could play with the Botanical Builder Framelits.  I only got the framelits recently.  I was NOT going to get these.  Nup,  I don’t need them, BUT I saw so many gorgeous things created that one day they slipped in to my order on Hostess rewards.  Just one of the many perks being a demonstrator. 😉

So I thought I would show you what I made.  I think I only touched the tip of the iceberg here.  So much to make with them.

I saw this idea on a Facebook group I am on to use the leaf border as the centre border on a card.  I thought that was clever. Have to say though it was harder to work out than it looked – and maybe cut the right side of the card!  Here is the first card.  I am still not too sure of it. I thought I would show you anyway.


The base in Sahara Sand and the Designer Series Paper piece is from the ‘It’s my Party’ Paper Stack. I think the colour of the DSP leaves it looking a little flat. I cut a piece of Mint Macaron card slightly smaller and then cut the leaf edge from the centre.  Just check which way you need to cut it first!!!

The sentiment is from ‘Birthday Blossoms’ set stamped in Black. I added some Rhinestones but still thought it was missing something.  After I cut some flowers for another card I added a flower to the top right.  The flower is in white and I sponged the edges. I don’t know, what do you think?  Missing something?

Well after making this card I tried another one this time in Island Indigo.


I do like this version better.  Maybe it’s a bit brighter? I added some Adhesive Pearls to this one.  The sentiment is from ‘A Dozen Thoughts’.  This might work for a wedding card?

When I made the Mint Macaron version above I first cut it wrong.  Rather than waste the piece I thought I would make another card.


I added the strip along the bottom of a Whisper White mat which I had embossed with the ‘Softly Falling’ Embossing Folder.  The card base is Mint Macaron.  This sentiment is also from ‘Birthday Blossoms’ which I cut with an Oval Framelit.  The flowers were cut in White and then sponged with some smaller Mint Macaron ones in the centre.

I can’t wait to get back to playing with these some more to see what else I can make.  Lots of versions layering and sponging!!
