Friendly Wishes meets Pretty Petals DSP Stack

I love the colors in the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack -  Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Very Vanilla.

This particular sheet has Basic Black, Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral so those are the colors used to color the stamped images from the Friendly Wishes set.

The images were stamped on Whisper White and then die cut with the NEW Lots of Labels Framelits.

The bow was cropped out of another pattern in the stack by the Bow Builder Punch.

Birthday Blossoms and Expressions Natural Elements

The Birthday Blossoms stamp set is a lovely flower set to add to your collection. The large flower image in this set coordinates with the Pansy Punch that you may already have.

The large flowers, leaves and flower middles were stamped in Versamark and heat set with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and a Heat tool.  The small light pink flowers were punched from scraps of Pink Pirouette card stock.

Birthday_blossoms

The Thick Whisper White card base was covered with a 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 piece of the Hello Honey Diagonal Print Designer Series Paper.  The Whisper White layer is 3-3/4 x 5 and the flowers and leaves were cut and punched and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The word celebrate was pressed into the Versamark ink pad, sprinkled with Gold Sampin' Emboss Powder and heat set.  It was added to the card with our Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Build a Birthday with Washi Tape!

Great idea to use the Everyday Chic Washi Tape as birthday candles!! The flames were inked in Versamark and heat set with gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and a Heat Tool. Then the washi tape was added to create the candles. Build_birthday_washi

Our NEW Whisper White Thick Cardstock was used as the card base and a strip of Gold Foil Paper was adhered along the bottom edge.  Some of our NEW Gold Metallic Thread was added willy nilly under the greeting to finish it off.

Garden in Bloom Bookmark Card

Loving this new set called Garden in Bloom. It is a two step stamp set so you don't have to wait for the right time of year to make your garden bloom. All you need is this stamp set, ink, and paper. This is a Two-Step Stampin' set, which gives you so many creative options--combine individual stamps to build the final image you want in the colors you want.

Garden_in_bloom_pirouette_poolparty

I stamped my images in various colors and then used Tuxedo Memento Black for the outline images.  I also did some doodling with my Project Life Journaling Pens to add the triple dot sets and the butterfly antennae.

The tag was cropped with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Pink Pirouette layer on the bottom is only adhered on three sides so the bookmark can be removed and used.

Happy July 4th!

Work_of_art_4thSome patriotic goodies I received from friends.  I received the card from my dear friend Barbara and was thrilled to get it as I am going to a July 4th Party.  I recycled the card and added a greeting to the front.

The little box is from Kari and had some candy in it including my favorite, Tootsie Rolls. :-)

Be safe everyone!!!
