Flowering Flourishes

Seems like lately I’ve needed some get well cards – so here is one I made for a stamping friend who recently had knee surgery. I wanted to create a card that was monochromatic since she had mentioned she really liked the Create a Banner Card that I recently made (click HERE to see that card).

Flowering Flourishes

I ran my Whisper White card stock through my Big Shot using the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder and then stamped my sentiment and images in Raspberry Ripple Classic Ink.

I wrapped a 6″ piece of Raspberry Ripple 3/8″ Satin Stitched Ribbon around the card front, added a bow and then attached the card front to my Raspberry Ripple card base.

Here is the inside of the card – of course it’s fun to stamp that too, right? I used the Finishing Touches Edgelits (127010) to trim the bottom and let the Raspberry Ripple peek through.

I hope this card will bring a smile to my friends face when she opens it, knee surgery is a long recovery process.

Festive Flurry Ornament Kit (while supplies last)

Dazzling Flower Shop

Today’s card uses the Flower Shop stamp set (item 130939/130942) and it may just dazzle you – lol. One of the great things about the Flower Shop stamp set is that it comes with a coordinating punch, the NEW Pansy Punch (item 130698). And I don’t know about you, but I looove punches! (Shhh..don’t tell my husband, but punches are one of my secret obsessions.) And better yet these two coordinating products make up another of our great bundles that save you 15%– The Flower Shop Bundle (item 132727/132726).

Flower Shop

When creating this card I used our yummy Strawberry Slush pattern from the 2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack (item 130136) as the layer on the bottom. Polka Dots are so much fun aren’t they? So I was very happy to see them in the Paper Stack again.

Next I used one of my favorite ribbons, the 5/8″ Whisper White Organza Ribbon. I bet you’re asking why it is one of my favorites right. Well it’s because it ties beautifully when making bows and is just a really great basic to have in your card supplies.  You just can’t go wrong with a Whisper White ribbon.

Finally I used my Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to add the Dazzling Diamonds to the flower to make it sparkle!

This greeting is from the NEW Hostess only stamp set Express Yourself (130336/130339). Isn’t the font lovely? Would you like one of the exclusive Hostess items for yourself? Why not hold a private party with me and have some friends over for an hour of fun – just email me and we’ll pick a date that works best for you!
