Flowers and Celebrations

I stamped flowers and I’m celebrating.

Honestly, I’m really celebrating that we survived the horrible weather yesterday.

Small town Pensacola has seen some particularly bad weather over the last 2 weeks.

Two weeks in a row tornadoes have come through our town.  Truly unheard of.

From the last weather report I heard 4 tornadoes touched down in our area.  We are fine and no damage that I can see around me.

Interestingly enough the tornado formed off the beach near us.  Then once on land it basically broke apart only to reform further inland.

Scary night and I’m glad it’s passed.

 

Let’s Stamp…. 

I pulled out my Flowering Fields stamp set and the Fabulous Four set for the greeting.  I love how this card turned out.

Flowers, Flowering Fields, Stampin' Up!

I love this one particular flower in the Flowering Fields stamp set and had this idea to stamp across the Whisper White and then have a stamped Vellum overlay.

My choices for greetings were pretty wide open since there are no greetings in the Flowering Fields stamp set.  I wanted something big enough to stretch over the flowers and Fabulous Four worked out perfect.

 

 

Create It!

Flowers, Flowering Fields, Stampin' Up!

 

To create this card-

  • I stamped the flower across the Whisper White cardstock (2-3/4 x 4-3/4) Using Delightful Dijon Ink.
  • I stamped the greeting across Vellum Cardstock (1-3/4 x 4-3/4) using VersaMark ink and embossed using Black Embossing Powder.
  • I added 1/2 of a Gold Foil Doily under a small strip of Typeset DSP (4-1/2″ long) that I folded in half and tucked the Gold doily inside the fold.
  • To keep the layers in place I stapled them together.
  • Adhere a piece of Wildflower Fields DSP (3/4 x 5-1/2) across a piece of Whisper White cardstock (5-1/2 x 8-1/2).
  • Attach a piece of Burlap Ribbon 3-3/4″ across the Wildflower Fields DSP using Multipurpose Tombow Glue (works the best with this burlap).
  • Attach stamped flowers over the ribbon and DSP using dimensionals.
  • Attach sequins using Fine-Tip Glue Pen

 

Tips & Tricks

 

 

Flowers, Flowering Fields, Stampin' Up!

 

  • I cut the burlap ribbon in half so it wasn’t as wide.  I also like the look of a rough edge.  Feels vintage.
  • The sequins I used come from a Project Life Accessory Pack.  I’ve said before that I love these sequins because they are larger than our normal ones and the colors are awesome.
  • Folding the Typeset DSP created a fun way to tuck the Gold Foil Doily snug between the layers.
  • Flowering Fields is a FREE stamp set that you can choose from the Sale-a-Bration catalog when you spend $50 in merchandise.

I love vellum and I love how it helps soften any project.  I love how you can see the flowers through the vellum on this card.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

We might be in the dead of winter but we can still grow a garden with our paper products, right?

 

With the Flowering Fields stamp set and the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper we can create a beautiful paper garden and say a big thank you.

Garden, Flowering Fields stamp set, Stampin' Up!

 

While I’m not much of a gardner I do have a green thumb with real flowers.  I love all kinds of flowers and watching them grow during the spring and summer. I have to admit I’m pretty good at it in the beginning.  Then as the hot Florida sun gets more brutal, my flowers seem to wither and I struggle to keep them watered.

Here’s the good news…

 

The stamp set Flowering Fields will not wither -EVER.

Create It!

Creating this card was quick and easy.

  • Use a 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ strip of Wildflower Fields DSP onto the Whisper White cardstock base
  • Emboss the greeting using VersaMark and White Embossing Powder onto the 1″ x 4″ Cardstock Vellum.
  • Staple the Cardstock Vellum and 1″ x 4″ piece of Calypso Coral cardstock together.  Cut a V onto the end of each.
  • Stamp flowers onto Whisper White cardstock using Lost Lagoon Ink.  Die cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits.  Attach a Gold Foil Doily over the stamped flowers.  Slide the die cut label between the Cardstock Vellum and Calypso Coral and attach using Snail Adhesive.  Attach to the Whisper White cardstock using a dimensional.
  • Corner round punch each of the corners.

Flowering Fields

Party, Flowering Fields, Stampin' Up!

 

There are 3 FREE products wrapped up in this card.  They include, Flowering Fields ( stamp set I used to stamp the flowers),  Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper, and then if you look closely you will see a few Vellum Circles.  The Vellum is from the Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack.

 

Create it

Party, Flowering Fields, Stampin' Up!

 

To create this card I punched circles in all sizes from 1-1/4 up to 1-3/4 in size.  Then I layered each of the circles across the Whisper White cardstock.

 

I did a quick stitch across the circles so that they would stay in place.

 

The greeting is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set embossed with Gold Embossing Powder on Vellum Cardstock.  I idd a quick stitch on the end of the Vellum to keep it intact.  I added two staples on the other end to hold in place.
