Wildflower Meadow & Pleasant Poppies

Do you use background stamps? Did you know that our background stamps make cards quick and easy. Just take a look at these two cards made with two of our background stamps, Wildflower Meadow and Pleasant Poppies  – add a sentiment and your done! How quick and easy is that?

Wildflower Meadow

This first card uses the Wildflower Meadow Bundle (132735/132985) that is found in the 2013 Catalog. This bundle includes both the stamp set and coordinating embossing folder and at a 15% discount. How cool is that.

Done in Real Red and Smoky Slate it has a sophisticated look. And who doesn’t like hummingbirds? Ours are already starting to show up at our feeders here in North Georgia.

Pleasant Poppies and Perfectly Penned

This second card uses the Pleasant Poppies Background stamp (132061/129499) and is great as a stand alone image or as background giving some added interested. Don’t you love the sentiment set Perfectly Penned (128703/122892)? The font is lovely in this set and it covers all your basic year round needs.

How about you, which is your favorite background stamp? If you haven’t tried one before maybe you’ll want to now so you can create quick and easy cards too!

Wildflower Meadow

There is something special about a hummingbird, don’t you think? Seems like hummingbirds have a special place in my heart – They always seem to make an appearance when I’m thinking of the loved ones I’ve lost, hovering outside my window. That special connection with hummingbirds made the Wildflower Meadow Background Stamp (item 129165/129168) an obvious choice for me when I saw it looking through the new 2013-2014 Catalog.

Wildflower Meadow Team Project June 2013

Here is a card I created with the Wildflower Meadow Background Stamp for my TEAM meeting in June. I really like the way it turned out and the soft feel of the card. I stamped the image onto one of our Tea Lace Paper Doilies (item 129399) and then placed a 2 ½” Circle of Whisper White card stock under the center of the doily to give the image a little more definition.


Stamp Set: Wildflower Meadow Background (item 129165/129168) and Six Sided Sampler (item 130953/130856)

Inks: Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Smoky Slate

Paper: Whisper White

Accessories: Gingham Wheel (item 130110), Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim, Chalk Talk Framelits, Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Linen Thread, 2 ½” Circle Punch, Stampin’ Spritzer, Daffodil Delight Refill, and Very Vintage Designer Buttons (item 129327).

Wildflower Meadow

Wildflower Meadow (item 129165/129168) is a background stamp that I think you’re going to love using. It makes a quick and easy card and lends itself to all kinds of different techniques.

Wildflower Meadow (2)

I don’t think the picture shows it well, but if you could see it in person you would notice that the image has a shimmer to it. How did I get it? Well I used our Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin’ Pad (item 126857) and Clear Embossing Powder (item 109130) when I stamped the image. Then I used our coordinating Wildflower Meadow Embossing Folder (item 129736) and ran it through the Big Shot.

I used my Stampin’ Markers to create the greeting along with the Label Love Stamp Set (item 130619/130622). And after stamping punched it out with our coordinating punch, the Artisan Label. A quick bit of ribbon tied in a bow and voila’.

The great thing about the new 2013-2014 Catalog is that there are more bundles than ever! Did you notice that I said coordinating items? Well I used two different Bundles to create this card that are available at a 15% discount. The Wildflower Meadow Bundle (item 132735/132985) and the Label Love Bundle (item 132723/132722).
