Climbing Orchid


 I have a whole bunch of orchids at my home and of course I had to have this set.  I've been playing with it but wanted the look of the whole plant not just the flowers hanging so this is what I made.

The basecard is melon mambo with a layer of whispet white.  I took some pear pizazz cardstock and cut out some ovals using the layering framelets.  Folded 2 (different sizes)  of the leaves a little off center to give the impression of the leaves.  The largest oval I diecut then used scissors to cut a margin of oval to make the stems.
Thinking of you is stamped with versamarker and heat embossed using white embossing powder.
It's sort of how I imagined the card.  Slightly smaller flowers or graduated flowers with a stem and leaves die would have been fantastic but not bad, eh?

Dog sleeping on mat At Home with you


I love how things coordinate- I stamped the dog from Sitting Here set and the basket of flowers from At Home with you and cut them out.  I stamped the door, the mat and the sconces and colored them in.  I used my grey and a ruler to make the siding and smoky slate to create a shadow around everything. colored thme in and added the dog and the flowers with dimensionals to pop them out.  Such a simple but fun card!

Birthday Delivery Girl


 This set came with this really cute Birthday Memories DSP that you could cut with the matching Framelit. The Girl came with the cupcakes all around her and it was just too cut to waste so I diecut the girl, then diecut the cupcakes with the large layering oval framelit and used a smaller stitched shaped framelit to hide the hole left by diecutting the girl and mounted the girl with dimensionals to pop her up.
Stamp the presents and stamp the sentiment with versamark, heat emboss with white embossing powder then softly falling embossing folder on 
 the real red cardstock piece.
Such an easy card - just diecutting and embossing but cute nevertheless!

Life's Short, Live it with Zest


One of last month's projects.  Base is whisper white embossed with Layered Leaves EF
Add a layre of Pear Pizazz then another whisper white stamped with Lemon zest in Daffodil Delight on the left and sentiment to the right with Memento Black.

Stamp another lemon whole and a slice with Daffodil Delight  and 2 leaves with Pear Pizazz on a scrap of whisper white and punch it out with the Lemon builder punch.  Cut the lemon slice in half and save one for use on the inside.  Layer with dimensionals as shown.

Stamp the matching sentiment on the inside and glue the other half of the lemon slice on the inside.  Easy peasy card.

Oh So Eclectic Case


I saw a card by Claire Daly that used this card sketch but the colors did not work for me and I did not have the DSP she used so I changed it up and this is what we made this past month's party.

Basecard is Berry Burst with another layer of Berry Burst on top diecut with the Eclectic Layers framelets.  A layer of silver glimmer paper behind the cutout for some extra shimmer.  Stamp the little tulips from the stampset in Berry Burst.  Stamp the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and punch it out with Pretty Label.   Stamp the leaves with old olive and cut out a soft sky flower and the powder pink flower after stamping with Berry Burst again.  Diecut all the pieces and mount as shown with some Rhinestone basic jewels and Gold faceted gems (because the clear ones are on backorder) but the variation I think is still pretty.

Kunal's birthday popup with Mama Elephant Party Animals


 I made a bunch of cards using Stampin' Up's Birthday Blast stampset and diecut to embellish in different ways. I came across this Party Animals set from Mama Elephant and love the little creatures celebrating and had to put them in the box.  Made one for Kunal, one of son's best friends and one for my niece in Melon Mambo.
A little $$ tucked away in the back and a banner personalizing the card I think makes it sweet.

Hope they like it!

Beautiful bouquet CAS444


This is a very simple card that looks complicated.
Pink pirouette base with a layer embossed with Ruffles EF. 
 black scalloped circle  from layering circle framelet then a stitched shaped circle diecut to match.
The flowers and the stems are from Bouquet bunch framelets- cut the flowers - 2 each of the bunches and one of the stems - 2 leaves -from pear pizazz and flowers in white then use dauber to color it in with melon mambo.

Stamp the sentiment from Feather together in black on a strip of 1/2 inch whisper white.
Tie a little bow before mounting

Baby Bear Birthday- CAS 443

 My sister asked for some images of the Baby Bear stampset and I had not played with it before and there was a bit of a learning curve with it to get the image right.  I started with the third image with Soft suede first then stamped the second image using Crumbcake making sure the eyes matched. Then the first image with crumbcake stamped off worked the best for me - otherwise the images seemed blurry somehow.

The sentiment I had to make up using images from Cookie-cutter Christmas and Lift me Up.  I really love cling and clear stamps because you can cut them up however you need them.  This card also fit the CAS 443 Sweet birthday wishes so posting.

Blooms & Wishes Colorcase


One of my Stampin' friends Barbara made a card and the colors in it was really fantastic.  Since I did not have the set she used, I decided to use Blooms and Wishes set to make a similar colored card.  The base is whisper white with a layer of Daffodil Delight. Used Melon Mambo for the big flowers and the dots from Awesomely Artistic.  the flower center is real red and the leaves are old olive and Pear Pizazz. Some pearls in the center to add some dimension.  The oval stitched and scalloped oval.

Birthday flower pop pot stand card

I am making a pop up birthday card for a friend and found this really cute pop up  from Elizabeth craft. I had been doing other popup cards but I like the options of adding a lot of flowers in this.  I would like someone to design a popup bouquet  a little smaller that would allow me to add more flowers to the top without sticking out of the card.

I've been diecutting a lot of flowers from any leftover cardstock  with a variety of stampin up flower dies so there is a variety here. I likte the little tiny punches for the center of the card- I got those from Michael's eons ago for a $1 each and they make the sweetest little centers.

 Anyway, this is how it opens up and it stands up with a whole bunch of flowers in it.
I stamped happy birthday on the inside from Stampin' Up Party Wishes (retired) and stamped the sentiment in the front using a variety of markers and punched it out with 1 1/2" circle punch

I added the festive DSP to cover up the holes made by the mechanism of the card.

I hope she likes the card.
