Dainty Flowers Birthday card

Dainty Flowers Birthday card

This card was designed for my Coffee and Card group using the FREE Sale-a-bration designer series paper ‘Dainty Flowers’ to make a Dainty Flowers Birthday card.

They coordinate with a bundle from the January to June mini catalogue called Dainty Delight. I don’t have the bundle, but honestly…I didn’t need it! The papers do all the work for you.They really are so pretty!

Dainty Flowers designer series paper birthday card

I made this sample card to show the group what we were making and used papers from the Tea Boutique collection as my background paper. However, if I’d looked more carefully there was a coordinating paper I could have used from the Dainty Flowers paper selection.

I used the retired triple punch to shape the corners of the oval flower paper and also the white inner.

The sentiment was from Framed Florets stamp set and this was die cut using a die from the retired Seasonal labels dies.

Thanks a Bunch

As we make 2 cards each week at the Coffee and Card group, I thought I’d also show you the other card we made;

Thanks a bunch Thank you card

I had seen a similar card to the one pictured above by EMKcreations on pinterest and decided that I just had to case the idea .

The background papers are from my (far too big) retired collection of papers that I am trying to use up.

The upside down carrots make fabulous trees. These were stamped in Evening Evergreen (first and second generation stamping) and Garden Green (first and second generation stamping). I used the ‘A dark’ skin tone for the trunks of the trees, and the grass is Pear Pizzazz.

‘Love’ card for the Tech4Stampers bloghop

Each month a lovely group of talented Stampin’Up! take part in a themed bloghop….its a great way to share our creativity with lots of people and hope you will follow the ‘hop’ by clicking on the links below. Some months I join in, but not always…..depending on other committments.

The theme for this months Bloghop is Love

I used the sentiment from Best Butterflies stamps and dies from the Give it a Whirl set for my card, and the colour palette of Sweet Sorbet and Parakeet Party. There is a full list of products that I used at the bottom of this post.

My card is inspired by my lovely friend, who is always bright and colourful and loves her ‘bling’.

The central panel is die cut using one of the Basic Border dies on a 5 1/2cm panel of designer series paper (DSP), from the Butterfly Kisses paper selection.

The back layer is using DSP from The Tea Boutique and the gorgeous Sweet Sorbet colour which I also used for the stamping on the front, inside and on the back panel.

I also added a panel of DSP to the inside of the card, but before adhering in place, I die cut 2 hearts from the edge of the panel, and then die cut a large heart in Sweet Sorbet and a smaller heart in Fresh Freesia and once the panel was stuck in place, I inlaid these hearts into the pre-cut ‘gaps’.

I die cut more hearts to embellish the front of the envelope, and then stamped on the back of the card with one of Stampin’ Up!s copyright stamped images. ‘Made with Love’ was very apt!!¬

I do love this years In colors and in particular, the lovely vivid Parakeet Party green and Sweet Sorbet. I used some of the Parakeet Party Metallic woven ribbon to embellish with a bow. I also added some Incolor Matte dots,
