Beautiful Bouquet Anniversary Card

Hello Kre8tors! So sorry I’ve been missing over the last week. It’s been hectic, baby, food poisoning, life changes… It’s been a lot! But I’m so happy to have found the time to make my husband’s grandparents a very special card for their 60th wedding anniversary. I wanted to make it super special, so I totally decked it out with all the bling! I’ve read that 60th is diamonds, so I wanted to get this card as sparkly as possible!

I don’t keep a very large stamp inventory, but I wanted to use something that was just right for this very special occasion. I decided to use the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set with the coordinating die cuts. I’m so happy I chose this set, because it was perfect! I love the cute little Mr & Mrs tag hanging from the bouquet, as well as the Happy Anniversary sentiment.

I decided to use the Tufted embossing folder for the Whisper White Card Mat on top. I really liked how the Tufted folder looks with the solid white and Blueberry Bushel foil framing the sentiment cut out window. I think the embossing really makes the rhinestones stand out at each of the intersections.

I used a scrap of glimmer paper and more of that gorgeous Blueberry Bushel foil to cut out the flowers and bouquet pieces. I wanted to keep with a monochromatic theme, so I just used the blue foil along with clean white papers. I tied the little bow on the Mr & Mrs Tag and adhered it to the bouquet using a mini glue dot. I used a combination of dimensionals, glue dots, and snail to get this card ‘stuck’ together.

The rhinestones added just the right amount of bling to this card. I wanted this card to feel extravagant for this very special milestone. Every intersection on the Tufted embossing folder has a rhinestone, unless that intersection is covered by the bouquet. For the foil on this card, I wanted to maximize the foil I had, so instead of cutting one piece that measured 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, I cut a 3″ strip to cut out the blue frame, and then I cut 1/2″ strips from the remaining 3″ strip to frame the edges. This gives the appearance of a solid card mat behind the white mat, without having to use a lot of foil.

I stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment with Blueberry Bushel ink, and this card was finished! It actually came together very fast once I knew what I wanted to do, and cut out all the pieces! This card was inspired by a Pinterest pin from Lou Kitzelman. You can see her project here.

First Frost Blueberry Bushel Card

Hello Kre8tors! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been able to get on and post let alone film a video! I was able to find some time tonight to play with my new Christmas goodies that are helping me get better organized and a bit more professional! My customers got a first hand look at my new toys when I went live to make this beautiful First Frost card in my private Facebook group.

I really love how this card turned out. I wasn’t sure about using Blueberry Bushel at first, but when I saw Melissa Gifford’s card on Pinterest, I really wanted to try it out! I tweaked it to use what I had on hand, but for the most part stuck with the overall layout.

The Blueberry Bushel and Whisper White are so lovely together, especially when you throw in some Glimmer paper and Vellum! And can we just give those Epoxy Droplets a moment?! They are STUNNING with this bundle! I love everything about how this card turned out!

Be sure to check out my video tutorial below to see how it all came together, and to get a peek at my new video backdrop! I’m SO in love! Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon!

ICS Blog Hop Introducing the New In Colors

Hello and welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share blog hop for June! So glad you could join us for this exciting hop to introduce the brand new 2018-2020 In Colors! There are so many wonderful demonstrators on this hop, so I hope you make sure to scroll to the bottom of the post and click that Next button to keep the hop going!

Introducing 5 brand new colors to the Stampin’ Up! Family. Here are the In Colors for 2018-2020!

I really wanted to play with one of the brand new stamp sets from the Annual Catalog too, so I decided to stamp this adorable octopus from the Sea of Textures stamp set in each of the new colors! I love how this stamp turns a clean and quick card into a fun set using each of the colors.

I was surprised just how bright the Pineapple Punch was! It shows up fantastically on the Whisper White cardstock. I used the Stamparatus to get the same placement for my sentiment on each card.

The Stamparatus made it so easy and quick to stamp these 5 cards. I can’t wait until Christmas card season arrives so that I can use this handy new tool to whip through all those cards!
