Field Flowers Birthday

Did this card for my monthly club girls, ways to use your tools (Clear Blocks) in a different way!
I chose to stamp on Naturals White card stock as it gave it a little more texture when stamping with the blocks.  I found Whisper White was just too smooth.
I really like this clean and simple look.

Spring Flowers

I'm wanting Spring Flowers already, especially when the temperatures get into the 50's mid February in Central Illinois!  But, weatherman said there is Snow in the forecast.  Sigh...
So, decided to make my own bright cheery spring flowers and put them on a card!
I used the flower from the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set
 (Free during Sale-A-Bration with an order of $50 less tax & shipping)
I stamped the image at the top of the post-it note (where the sticky part is) to make a mask for the flower cut it out.  Having the post-it sticky helps keep it in place while stamping.  Staggered the flowers for some interest some little leaves and black dots.  Added some Dazzling Details in the center of the flowers for some sparkle.

Happy Day

I have had the stamp set Ciao, Baby! for awhile now and I finally got a chance to break it out!  I always need birthday cards so I thought I'd use the Happy Day stamp.  I wanted to add an image to signify that this is a birthday card and did not have anything small enough.  Then I had an idea, use the top of the cupcake from the Sale-a-Bration Patterned Occasions set!
Embossed the Midnight Muse card stock with the Fancy Fan embossing folder then popped my images on dimensionals.  Quick and easy!

Happy Birthday Cupcake!

Well, I finally finished up 200 invitations for a couple who will be renewing their vows on their anniversary.  Now maybe I can get back to creating!  Two challenges, a sketch from 
Mojo Monday and a Color Challenge from The Paper Players.
I'm not quite sure if I like the color combo, but at least it gets me to try different colors together.
The ribbon is actually Very Vanilla Seam Binding, just dyed it using my ink pad and some water to lighten it and the Bakers Twine was inked in Midnight Muse.  All in all, I like how it turned out! It felt so good to make something different!

Razzleberry Just Because

Doing some dry embossing with my Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Diagonal Plate and since I had some buttons from the Sycamore Street Designer Buttons PackFor every $50 you spend, you’ll get a FREE Sale-A-Bration product!

I chose Rich Razzleberry as my main color.  Stamped "Just because" in the bottom right then turned it over and scored 1 1/2" above the sentiment twice and then one in the middle of the two score lines.  Added my diagonal plate and continued scoring to make a diamond pattern and then adhered to Rich Razzleberry. 

The flower was stamped twice, once in Rich Razzleberry and then another in Daffodil Delight.  I cut out the center of the Daffodil Delight and adhered with a glue dot.  I used the Rich Razzleberry Marker to make lines on the petals and darken the center a bit for some depth.
The leaves are from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set, Certainly Celery as the base and Gumball Green on top.  Added a Basic Rhinestone in the swirl of the sentiment.

Bloomin' Vintage Thank You

Trying out the new stamp sets from Sale-A-Bration
(For every $50 you spend, you’ll get a FREE Sale-A-Bration product!)
plus some colors that I have never put together before!  I was trying out the different shades of Stampin' Up! Blues but it did not pop.  Tried Tempting Turquoise and that's what I was looking for!  I placed a 1 1/2" strip of paper across the Whisper White and sponged on some Pool Party then stamped my flowers and leaves.  Added a button with some ribbon and stamped the butterflies in Island Indigo and put Dazzling Details on them.  Also added Dazzling Details to the centers of the flowers!
