Fine Art Floral CASE Swap

My team has been doing a monthly swap during the Covid restrictions, since last March.  It gives us a chance to make cards for different themes, sketches and general cards.  In January my team decided to try a CASE swap.  The idea was to CASE a project or card from the new January to June Mini Catalogue or the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

CASE is an acronym for Copy and Share Everything!

For my swap I decided to use one of my favourite Bundles from the Fine Art Floral Suite.


This is such a cute card idea.  I made my card 4"X4" size so it fits inside a Medium envelope. When making mutiples of the same card it is a must to use the Stamparatus.(A stamp positioning tool )  I was able to cut my flower shape with the dies and then stamp them all one after another using my Stamparatus making the job so much easier.

Have you used the Stamparatus for one of your projects?

Here is the inside of the card:

Approaching Perfection

 My husband had a birthday last week and I needed to make him a card, so off to my craft room I went to make a birthday card!  One of the Sale-A-Bration free stamp sets was my stamp of choice because the semtiments were just perfect.

A little history...my husband followed the movie Benjamin Buttons and decided at age 50 that he would start going backwards in age...  

The sentiments in the stamp set were perfect....Approaching Perfection!  I have to say he had a great laugh when he read my card...challenge accepted!


I am really enjoying the free DSP from the Sale-A-Bration brochure also.  I used both patterns of the Bermuda Bay paper (both the ombre and the ombre with pattern).

Here is the inside of the card:

Pot of Succulents

 One of the bundles in the new Mini January to June Catalogue was destined for my craft room from the moment I saw it!  Not only is there a great stamp set but the dies are great too!  There is a die in this bundle that makes a great background when you cut it out and use it as a stencil.

I used the new Blending Brushes to make the background for this card.  I placed the stencil (cut from the dies) onto a piece of Shimmery White and attached it in the corners with washi tape.  Then I went to work with my Blending Brushes.  I love the result!


I used Stampin' Blends to colour my succulents and I think that you can use any combination that you like.  I chose a few different greens, purple and Rich Razzleberry for the tips.

ICS Blog Hop - January 2021 - Punch Party

 


Hello and Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop for January 2021!

This month our theme is "Sale-A-Bration!" and we are sharing cards made with some of these items.

Here is my card front: 


I made my card using the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper pack and the Punch Party stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  I have also used items from the new January to June mini catalogue.

For the white heart inside the Rococo Rose heart I have used one of the heart charms.  I dipped it into Versamark and then dipped it into White Stampin' emboss powder.  Then I heat set it with my heat tool and added it with some liquid glue.

This is the inside of my card:



My supply list is below.

Don't miss any of the other projects!  Follow along the Blog Hop with Sandra as I am sure she will have a great project to share with you!
