Stampin’ Up! May Flowers One Big Meaning Thanks – and the Blog Candy Winner!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope it’s going well so far this week.  My meeting has been very productive and well worth the effort it took to get out here (she admits grudgingly….).  Today I’ll be headed back to the airport and on the way home in the morning!

My card for today is a spring-y, flowered-y thank you card, using the fun Falling Flowers stamp set and matching May Flowers Framelits and one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets:  One Big Meaning!  When I added the gorgeous Blooms & Bliss DSP, here’s what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch to help me with the layout.

I started with a panel of Mint Macaron and Island Indigo flowers paper from the Blooms & Bliss DSP and SNAILd it to a Blushing Bride mat.  Using the new Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper, I cut out two sets of leaves with the May Flowers Framelits and adhered them to my card front with Liquid Glue.

The center layer is a piece of Whisper White card stock.  First I used the two leaves images in the Falling Flowers stamp set – stamping them all over the panel in Mint Macaron and Island Indigo ink.  I matted the panel on Blushing Bride, then ran the whole thing thru my Big Shot in the Petal Burst TIEF.  Then I popped that over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut two Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper leaves and a Blushing Bride flower with the May Flowers Framelits, then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the middle panel.

My sentiment, from One Big Meaning, is heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a strip of Vellum card stock.  I adhered the vellum to a piece of Whisper White card stock – using tiny bits of glue from my Fine Tip Glue Pen under just the embossed words to hide the glue.  Then I used my Banner Triple Punch on both ends.

I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment banner and then added a tiny bow made from Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine and a Blushing Bride Enamel Shape – and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the pretty flower from Falling Flowers in Blushing Bride on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then I added a sticky note mask over it and stamped a few Mint Macaron leaves.

I SNAILd the panel to a Blushing Bride mat and into my Island Indigo card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the Falling Flowers flower and leaves on the front…

…and a touch more of the Blooms & Bliss DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a pretty bundle of flowers and leaves – the Falling Flowers stamp set and matching May Flowers Framelits!  And I really love it with the Blooms & Bliss DSP!  Hope you like!

Heard a report that my sweet little puppy….ran a little ways into the woods yesterday and came out with…a deer leg!


Maybe a coyote got it?  Perhaps a hunter tossed a carcass?

I don’t know.  But…it does prove that…sweet as he is….he is….in the end…a dog wolf!

What happened to this little guy who just wanted to play in a water bowl and carry toys and sticks??


They grow up so quick….

    Y’all might have a lion you don’t know about!?! And yes, they DO grow up so fast…the kids and the pups, all.
    Be safe on your trek …

    Such a lovely card, Mary. You really have a gift for layering. I wonder what “gift” Finn will find for you when you come home? – Ellie

    • LOL. Always a crap shoot, for sure! I’ll cringe for a while whenever he comes towards me carrying something! Thanks much for the nice words on my card, Ellie!

  4. Beautiful florals, Mary, and the glimmer paper just makes it really pop!
