Bright Blossoms

Over the next few days I will post the cards we made for our card ministry at church. Just some simple and fun cards — quick and easy!

Here is the how-to:

  • Stamp the vase and with leaves in Basic Black on Whisper White card stock.
  • Stamp the flower in Riding Hood Red.
  • Attach to Basic Black card stock.
  • Stamp “thinking of you” from Teeny Tiny Wishes on Whisper White card stock and punch out using the Modern Label Punch. Punch out another label from Basic Black cardstock. Cut this label in half and attach it to the ends of the “thinking of you” label.
  • Attach both label and flower to the Riding Hood Red card base using Dimensionals.
  • Place a Jewel Rhinestone on the flower for that little bit of bling!

Playing around

I had a few minutes the other night and found a piece of card stock that I had stamped a different flower on from the Bright Blossoms stamp set. I couldn’t bare to throw it away, so I created this cute tag to be added to a gift bag.

Here is the how-to:

  • Using the Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, and Rich Razzleberry markers, I colored my stamp and then huffed and puffed and stamped on Whisper White card stock.
  • I then took the Scallop Edge Border Punch and punched along the side of the stamped image and a piece of Island Indigo card stock.
  • I created a tag from Tangerine Tango card stock and ran it through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.
  • I punched a piece of Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper using the Blossom Punch. This punch is available in our Occasions Mini Catalog.
  • I attached the blossom to the tag with Snail, attached the two scalloped pieces together, and then attached those pieces to the tag using Dimensionals.
  • Don’t forget the cute little Basic Pearl in the middle of the flower!

Take a look at the Summer Smooches Flyer to see all the great products available this month as a sneak peek to the new catalog coming in June.

See you later!

I’ve done it — I think!

Welcome to my blog. I’ll be learning along the way; so, be patient with me! I’ll make this entry short and simple, since I’m totally lost as far as how I should be formatting things.

I would like to introduce you to the Bright Blossoms stamp set from Stampin’ Up!© This stamp set is a sneak peek of some of the sets that will be coming out in the new catalog this June. Bright Blossoms will be available for purchase during April. Check my website for all the details on the Summer Smooches collection, since I don’t have the foggiest idea of how to attach the flyer to this blog!

Anyway, here is a quick and easy birthday card. I CASE’d this card (Copy And Share Everything) from another talented demonstrator, with a few changes of my own. I used the Bright Blossoms set and the coordinating Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper. The scan doesn’t do the paper justice, so I guess I’ll have to learn how to photograph my cards in the future!


Here is the how-to:

  • Using your Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade markers, color the vase and flower stems on the stamp. Huff and puff and stamp it on Whisper White card stock.
  • Cut several different designs from the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper. I punched one edge of one design with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and attached it ot the card stock. I then layered another design on top. 
  • Next, I ran another piece of Designer Series Paper through the Big Shot using the Tasteful Trim die and attached it over the other two pieces.
  • I punched flowers from Rich Razzleberry and Tangerine Tango card stock using the Itty Bitty Shapes flower punch, attached them to the card using Mini Glue Dots, and then added the Basic Pearls to the middle of the flowers.
  • You can stamp any sentiment you would like, but I chose “Happy Birthday” from the Create a Cupcake stamp set and stamped it in Island Indigo.
  • Attach the whole thing to the Island Indigo card base and you’re done!

I will try and post at least every Monday and Thursday and maybe a few days in between if I have a new blogging adventure to try. Have a happy day!
