Interesting Border & Flowers…..

Botanical Gardens (Diana)

Stamp Set – Botanical Blooms
Cardstock – Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, Whisper White, Botanical Gardens DSP
Ink – Mossy Meadow
Accessories – Botanical Builder Framelits Dies, Big Shot, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Snail Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals

What do you think of the left edge of the Whisper White piece?  I love it!

This is one of the cards I made at a class hosted by Diana Buckingham.  The Botanical Builder Framelits create interesting borders and flowers.  Some of the flower framelits in this set create flowers that have centers that lift up.  Look at the photo above and you can see what I mean.

Purchase the Botanical Blooms stamp set and the coordinating Botanical Builder Framelits framelits as a bundle and save 15%.  Use product # 140819 to get the bundle price.

Stamping Tip: Use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the leaves – it’s perfect for the fine fronds of the leaves.

Happy Home

Missing You for G&T

This Clean and Simple card features the Happy Home stamp set and Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper (one of the free items you can choose from the Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order).  I used a Sponge Dauber to add “grass” to the hill.

Another way to make a quick and easy project is using a Paper Pumpkin kit.  These kits from Stampin’ Up! arrive in your mailbox and contain everything you need to create a project.  During Sale-a-bration, a 3 month subscription is only $55 and earns you a FREE item from the Sale-a-bration Catalog.

I made this card for a neighbor who is in the hospital.  The bright colors make it a fun card for anyone, including men and kids.  Sometimes making masculine cards can be a challenge but this came together quickly and should bring a smile to our friend’s face.

I’m offering a new opportunity starting in February- Card Kits By Mail.
