Wondrous Wreath Leaving Card

Hi there

I recently had to make a leaving card for one of the ladies at work.  She loved my Wondrous Wreath card in a non Christmas layout so I replicated it for her leaving card.

This card is made using a 12 x 12 sheet of card stock and with a few cuts and scores it transforms into this really cool album card which is also great for a leaving card.

Stamp Set - Wondrous Wreath
Card Stock - Elegant Eggplant, So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Perfect Plum, Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe
DSP - Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum Colour Collection (retired)
Other - Boho Blossom Punch, Owl Builder Punch, Glue Dots, Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Blended Bloom - Wisteria Wonder

Hi there

I forgot to do a post last night showing my final card using Blended Bloom! So here it is:

Wisteria Wonder is not a colour I've used much but I must admit this does look nice.  The 'leaf' image is from the Hostess set 'Bloom with Hope'.  I've again raised the first layer of petals and made them a bit darker than the rest of the flower.  This card took some time to create as there was heaps of manual cutting around all the leaves - but the result is well worth it.

Stamp set - Blended Bloom, Bloom with Hope
Card Stock - Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White
Ink - Momento Black
DSP - First Edition Specialty Paper (retired)
Blendabilities - Wisteria Wonder, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
Other - Wisteria Wonder 3/4" Chevron Ribbon, Dimensionals

Well I'm off now to get ready for my day - hope you have a good one.

Blended Bloom - Daffodil Delight

Hi there

Sorry this post is a bit late - been a busy evening.

Yellow is my favourite colour (no surprises there!) so I couldn't not create a 'yellow' Blended Bloom card.  For this card I layered the first 'row' of petals and centre with dimensionals.

To get my doily sitting correctly I cut it in half then covered up the gap with the matted piece of DSP.  I love the papers in the Moonlight Paper Stack and this one goes really well with the colours I've chosen.

Stamp Set - Blended Bloom, Sketched Birthday
Card Stock - Whisper White, Lost Lagoon, Basic Gray
Ink - Hello Honey, Momento Black
DSP - Moonlight Paper Stack
Blendabilities - Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake
Other - Paper Doilies, Bitty Banner Framelits

Blended Bloom - Rich Razzleberry

Hi there

I've got two Rich Razzleberry cards to show today.  The first one I made for one of the ladies I used to work with.  Her favourite colour was purple so I've used a range of 'purple's' on her card.

The card base is Perfect Plum, the trim is Elegant Eggplant and the flower is Rich Razzleberry.  I found the strip of the honeycomb paper from the Moonlight paper stack and matched it with the Honeycomb Embossing folder - I love how the Stampin' Up! products mix and match.

Here's a close up of the flower showing the different layers.  I was originally going to use dimensionals in between each layer but it was going to end up too high so I cut out a circle of card stock instead and used that as my 'spacer' between the layers.

Stamp Set - Blended Bloom, Petite Pairs
Card Stock - Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Blendabilities - Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake
Ink - Momento Black, Elegant Eggplant
DSP - Moonlight Paper Stack
Other - Large Oval, Scallop Oal, Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Basic Pearl

The second card uses the same products as above - just a different patterned paper and of course the coordinating Stripes Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from Four You - this is a great set and covers all the sentiments you need.  I've used my favourite punch - Decorative Label to punch and mat the sentiment.

For this flower I only layered the centre - done in the same way as the above card.  Did you notice the coloured basic pearl in the centre of the flower?  This was done using the Blendabilities - they're not just for colouring in images.

I still have a few more cards using this stamp set so check back tomorrow for another installment.

Blended Bloom - Pumpkin Pie

Hi there

Today's 'Blended Bloom' is paired with Pumpkin Pie.  I've left the sentiment off at the moment as I wasn't sure what type of card I would use this for.

I have found the colouring in rather relaxing and nice to do at the end of a busy day.

Stamp Set - Blended Bloom
Card Stock - Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Ink - Momento Black
Blendabilites - Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight
DSP - First Edition Specialty Paper (retired)
Other - Hello Honey Satin Ribbon, Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Dimensionals

Blended Bloom - Coastal Cabana

Hi there

I thought I'd take a break from Christmas Cards and show you some of my creations using the lovely Blended Bloom stamp set and Blendabilities markers.

This is one of the first cards I made using the three shades of Coastal Cabana Blendabilities.  I started with the darkest around the edge then moving to the mid tone and then finally the lightest tone.

I made this tissue box cover to go with the card for a friends birthday.

Ink - Momento Black
Blendabilities - Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake
