ICS Blog Hop - Heartfelt Blooms


Woo Hoo it's the first Wednesday of the month you know what that means RIGHT? ICS Blog hop time!  Our theme this month is The Sale-A-Bration continues so we are once again showcasing items that are available for FREE with a $50 or $100 order. We added a fun little color challenge this month too, each project can use any/all or a combo of the following colors!

I decided to use the Heartfelt Blooms Sale-A-Bration stamp set which is one of my favorite stamp sets of all time!!  I needed a thank you card and this set is a great one for very elegant yet simple cards of all types.  This is inspired by my friend and fellow blogger Audra.



The Heartfelt Blooms stamp set is stamped in Dapper Denim ink on Crumb Cake cardstock  (4" x 5 1/4).  It is matted on Night of Navy cardstock  (4 1/8” x 5 3/8”) popped with Stampin' Dimensionals on Dapper Denim card base (11” x 4 1/4” scored at 5 1/2”).  The sentiment is also in the same stamp set.  It is stamped in Night of Navy on Crumb Cake and cut out using the Pretty Label punch and popped.  The Night of Navy gingham ribbon is attached to the back of the layers, cut in the middle, and then tied.  This is a new way to me way that I learned recently for ribbon!  A glue dot is used to hold the knot down.  

I hope you enjoyed my card!

ICS Blog Hop - Tutti Frutti





Woo Hoo it's the first Wednesday of the month you know what that means RIGHT? ICS Blog hop time! Our theme this month is A Recipe For Sale-A-Bration!  I am so excited because it starts today!  I focused on the Tutti Frutti suite that coordinates with the Sale-A-Bration item Tutti Frutti Cards & Envelopes (147242).


This is the first card I have made with this suite and I already love it!  The fruit pieces are small but very nicely detailed!  The card base is the Sale-A-Bration item.  The next layer is new Tutti-Frutti DSP 3" x 4 1/4" and attached to the card base with snail adhesive.  The top layer is Whisper White cardstock slightly smaller than the DSP at 2 7/8" x 4 1/8".  The bowl is Daffodil Delight ink which coordinates with the cardbase.  I stamped it again on a post-it note to create a mask for the strawberries.  The little strawberries are then stamped in Real Red ink.  I stamped a few and then added the leaves topper in Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I continued this process to fill the bowl.  The sentiment was also stamped in Daffodil Delight.  This layer was popped in Stampin' Dimensionals.



I hope you enjoyed my card!
