Good morning, you guys. There’s no easy way to say this so…I’ll just come right out with it. I’m sorry to tell you that I’ve decided to resign from Stampin’ Up! I realized this weekend that I am having trouble juggling work and SU! and something has to give. Much as I love Stampin’ Up! – and YOU guys!! – I have to make the decision that makes the most sense for me and my family.
So – we’ll do this one last card and…this will be my last blog post. 🙁
The card I have to share with you uses the Happiness Blooms DSP and a few sentiments from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
I started with a Calypso Coral card base and cut two panels of Happiness Blooms DSP the same size as the front of the card base. I used Liquid Glue to adhere one panel to the card front and the other to the inside of the card.
Next, I took a Whisper White panel and embossed it in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF, then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I used some Glue Dots to adhere a length of Calypso Coral 3/8″ Satin Ribbon over the seam on the card front.
For the sentiment, I chose one from the new Butterfly Gala stamp set and stamped it in Call Me Clover on Whisper White. I punched it with the Tailored Tag Punch and added some faux stitches with my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped three leaves from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set in Call Me Clover on a piece of Whisper White and fussy cut them. I also fussy cut a Pineapple Punch flower from one of the designs in the Happiness Blooms DSP.
I adhered two leaves to the card front with Liquid Glue and popped the third one on with a Dimensional. Then I added the fussy cut flower with a little Liquid Glue.
I added a few Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots and the card front was done!
On the inside, I added a second Butterfly Gala sentiment in Call Me Clover to a Whisper White panel. Then I stamped one of the flowers in Pineapple Punch and added some Calypso Coral faux stitches.
I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few more Bloom By Bloom flowers on the front…
…and then I added a little more Happiness Blooms DSP to the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Isn’t this a fun card? Love this Happiness Blooms DSP – it’s so darned bright and cheery. And the Butterfly Gala has wonderful sentiments – making it an awesome set to own – even if you never stamped a butterfly! I hope you like!
