    Boho Sympathy

    So sorry I have been out of touch lately, I hope to get back to posting regularly. This blue and white card (one of my favorite combinations) is stamped with the Prized Peony Set (continuing in the new catalog) and Boho Paper which has retired. Any blue & white combo will do nicely with this soft and elegant sympathy card. I stamped the image first on the Basic White cardstock, embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder to give it a linen look, and then re-stamped it again on another piece of cardstock which was then die cut. It gives it a kind of 3-D effect up close. Supplies:#159276 Basic…

    Fluttering Birthday

    I have been wanting to use the Stampin’ Up! Floating & Fluttering stamp set for awhile. You are able to stamp a group of butterflies together, and then die cut them all at once too — so much fun! I stamped Blossoms & Blooms for the background and used the Ornate Dies to back that up. Just call me the “layering lady” — that’s my new nickname!

    More of You

    I was inspired to use some of Stampin’ Ups! beautiful Ornate Frames and Layers dies. They are so beautiful and versatile when working on layered cards — and they make your card look like you spent hours on it! I stepped out of my box by using two of the new in-colors: Just Jade and Magenta Madness as well as the Flowers for Every Season DSP. I think I now own every one of the floral DSP packs that Stampin’ Up! offers!

    Forever & Always – Love

    I made this card for my sweet niece who has had to reschedule her wedding once and may have to do so again due to COVID restrictions. She is always upbeat and remains positive. I fancy cut the flowers on the left from the True Love DSP – I am in love with the black & white papers. The die cut frame is from the Dandy Laser-Cut papers and the smaller black frame is from Stitched So Sweetly die cuts.

    Garden Wishes – Breath of Fresh Air

    Today I am introducing the Garden Wishes stamp set which is part of the Dandy Garden Suite Collection from the Spring Mini Catalog. I always fall hard for the nature sets and this one is no exception. This card is basically just stamping, no die cuts. The pretty background paper is the reverse side of the Fine Art Floral DSP and the ribbon is Old Olive reversible ribbon from the annual catalog.
