Say Goodbye to Breathtaking Bouquet

It’s no secret if you follow my blog that I loved the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp. I was cleaning off my crafting table and I found a leftover piece of watercolor paper embossed with this stamp. Well, I got out my pigment sprinkles and I attempted to watercolor on the stamped image. It’s really hard to see white embossing on white paper but I gave it a try. I much prefer just using the pigment sprinkles and a spray bottle. ๐Ÿ™‚

After I finished the watercolor, I die cut the image and sprayed it with a mixture of Frost White Shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol to give it a little shimmer. The sentiment comes from the retiring Kindness & Compassion stamp set. I die cut the edge of the card base with the border scalloped die from the Stitched Be Mine dies.

Check out these projects I made using the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp.

Say Goodbye to Royal Peacock

It’s time to say Goodbye to the Royal Peacock stamp set along with the rest of the items in the suite. I loved the Nobel Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper and Foil sheets. They are just so pretty I had to use all of the foil colors on this card along with a piece of the specialty DSP. I even stamped the inside of the card, I don’t usually do that because I donate many of the cards I make.

I’m playing along with Fusion Card Challenge.

Say Goodbye to Daisy Delight

I don’t have to be too sad to say goodbye to Daisy Delight because I also have the Daisy Lane stamp set and it’s sticking around. I will miss using the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder for blog posts but it will be staying in my collection because I love it. After stamping the flowers, I inked the top of the die cut with Balmy Blue. For the daisy, I used my bone folder to curve the petals up and then to curve the ends of the petals down.

I’m following the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Challenge #456 which is pretty similar to many of the cards I’ve made lately. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Joy of Sets Blog Hop – Birthday

I’m joining in the Joy of Sets Blog Hop again this month and our theme is birthday. I created these two birthday cards using the June 2019 sketch from Sheetload of Cards. I learned about it from Cards for Soldiers.

I started with the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper because I wanted to do a red balloon but Crushed Curry is really not my favorite color so I decided to pull in the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper for a pretty background instead.

Elegant Very Versailles

Rachel Tessman gifted me the Very Versailles stamp set along with some other items and challenged me to make 6 projects using it. My first project posted on Tuesday and this is my second project.

I thought the Delicate Lace dies would pair well with the Very Versailles stamp set. I created a patterned paper by repeatedly stamping the emblem in Versamark and embossing with copper embossing powder. On the inside I put a piece of copper foil that I embossed using the Tufted embossing folder. The sentiment comes from the So Sentimental stamp set.

Shabby Chic with Very Versailles

When I first saw this stamp set, I thought it would be perfect for a shabby chic or collage style card with lots of inking. For this card, I stamped the script background a few times on a piece of Thick Very Vanilla in Crumb Cake and then added more ink to the background using a make up brush. The leaf image was stamped with Early Espresso. I die cut the frame using one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies and popped it up. For a final touch, I die cut the large flourish from the Flourish dies out of the Petal Pink vellum. I embellished the sides with the Woven Threads Trim and popped up the middle panel. To get just the tassels from the trim, pull out the thread holding them together.

Mountain Air

I finally broke out my Mountain Air stamp set and coordinating Majestic Mountains Dies. I stamped the tree line in Mossy Meadow ink on Mossy Meadow cardstock and then again using Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. I found it a challenge to line up the die for the tree line so next time I may die cut it first and then stamp. The mountains are stamped in Versamark on Smoky Slate and embossed in white. I inked the background with Balmy Blue and Night of Navy. Once I put the card together, I decided to splatter some Frost White Shimmer Paint on it for stars…I forgot to protect the mountains and the trees so a shimmer spritz to the rescue again. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also the moon is Basic Gray ink on Basic Gray cardstock and punched out with the 1″ circle punch to hide a splotch of paint that was too big.
