Stampin' Up! Graceful Garden


This is such a gorgeous rose, don't you think??  I knew as soon as I saw this stamp set, Graceful Garden, in the Annual Catalog that it was a must-have!

Read on to learn all about this card and gorgeous stamp set :).




We start our card with a Powder Pink card base.  Next, we added a layer of Berry Burst card stock embossed with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.  I love how the trellis embossing just peaks out from behind the stamped flower image!

Then, we stamped our rose (from the Graceful Garden Stamp Set) in Berry Burst ink on the flower and Old Olive on the leaves and stem - I like to use my Stampin' Write markers when I want two colors of ink on one stamp.  They work great for this technique - just make sure to use the fat, brush tip end of your marker kind of on an angle when coloring your stamp.

We also stamped that trellis-looking image (also from the Graceful Garden Stamp Set) in Crumb Cake ink around the corners of our Whisper White piece.

Next, we colored in our rose with our Powder Pink marker and added a Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Bow to the flower.

Finally, we stamped "Thinking of You' from the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp set on the inside of our card.



This is the perfect stamp set to have on hand for those sympathy, get well, thinking of you and praying for you cards - it has just the right thing to say when you're at a loss for what to say!

Delightful Daisy... Thank You


Ooooooohhhh, this card is so pretty!!  It's not even a color combination that I normally gravitate to, but I just love it right now!!  The bright yellow of the Daffodil Delight card stock with the soft purple of the Wisteria Wonder daisies....., oh my!!

Read on to learn all about it!!


We start our card with a Daffodil Delight card base, then added a layer of Whisper White card stock to our card.  We stamped "Thank You" from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set in Wisteria Wonder ink on the bottom of our Whisper White piece.




Daisy Delight Stamp Set  143669   




We also added a piece of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the top of our Whisper White piece.  I just love the dainty little flowers on this piece of DSP!

Before actually adding our Whisper White piece to our card base, we put a strip of Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double Stitched Ribbon just below our DSP and tacked it on the back of this piece.

Next, we stamped 2 daisies in Wisteria Wonder ink (using the Daisy Delight Stamp Set) on Wisteria Wonder card stock and punched them out with the Daisy Punch.  You can buy the stamp set and punch separately, or save 10% when you buy them in the bundle!

For a final finishing touch, we added a Gold Faceted Gem to the center of our daisy.

Beautiful Bouquet.... Thanks a Bunch


Can you tell I am STILL totally in love with our new In Colors, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist???

They have been my "go to" colors for most any project this summer :).  And this project doesn't disappoint!

I actually CASE'd this card from our annual catalog - I just changed up the colors (like I said before....) and made a few other subtle changes.  I hope you enjoy!



We start our card with a Berry Burst card base, then added another layer of Berry Burst card stock embossed with the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder.

Next, we stamped a bunch of flowers (in Berry Burst and Pool Party ink) using the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set.  The center of the Pool Party flowers is stamped with Soft Suede ink.  We also die-cut our flowers with the coordinating Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  In addition, we die-cut more (Berry Burst and Pool Party) flowers and (Lemon Lime Twist) leaves using just the Bouquet Bunch Framelits (no stamping necessary on these).  Oh, and we stamped that little flower wrapper in Lemon Lime Twist ink and die-cut it with our framelits, too!

This awesome stamp set and framelits can be purchased separately or you can save 10% when you buy them in the bundle (and why not?? - they are both so stinkin' cute!).

Then, we stamped "Thanks a Bunch" (also from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set) and die-cut this piece with our Stitched Shapes Framelits.  We also layered our sentiment piece over a Lemon Lime Twist scallop square die-cut with the Layering Square Framelits.  And then...... we added our bouquet of flowers!  I popped some of them up on our new Mini Dimensionals just to give the flowers a little depth.  If you don't have the new Mini Dimensionals yet, you have to try them!  They are about 1/3 the size of our regular Dimensionals.

Finally, we added one of my favorite new ribbons (well, who am I kidding?? - I love all of our new ribbon!) to the card - the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon - it makes the perfect bow for this card!
