Bloomin’ Love

BloominLove3Do you LOVE the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlet?  It really is SOOO GORGEOUS!  I really wanted to use this with my stamping group and was roaming around Pinterest to get some inspiration for it.  I ended up putting a couple of different ideas together.

I love the look of the soft neutrals with the pop of color on there.  Layering up the flowers and add some leaves from the 2-step bird punch is a nice little accent to the heart.

Here’s the details…

  • Sahara Sand – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8
  • Sahara Sand – 3 3/4 x 5, layer onto Very Vanilla, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Very Vanilla – cut out Bloomin’ Heart thinlet, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp banner and FRIEND on Blushing Bride using Basic Grey Archival, cut out (or use framelit) and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Cut flowers from Calypso Coral and layer, punch leaves/stem from Mint Macaron using 2-step bird punch, layer and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add Basic Rhinestone to center of flower on a couple of the flowers in the framelit.

Heart

I actually made this card a while ago.  It started off I made it for a Tour de Freaks Hop…then I went in another direction.  Then I decided I liked it so much I would just use it as a post.  THEN saw the theme for this week and it was SOOOO perfect for it…well…HERE IT IS!  The Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit is just GORGEOUS not matter what you use as the paper!  I wanted soft so went with just the whisper white and the Pink Pirouette.

Here’s the details…

  • Pink Pirouette – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp greeting using Versamark and silver emboss

SUO140It’s time for another SUO Challenge and this time the theme is Valentine Cards or Gifts.

I had this idea that I wanted to use for a Valentine type card and so this was just the perfect challenge for me to use the idea for!

I LOVE the stem/leaves from the Number of Years set and instead of ‘flowers’ I wanted to add some hearts.  My friend Jo gave me some of her Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and I decided that would be PERFECT for my hearts to give it that ‘little extra’.  So…put everything together and this is what you got!

Here’s the details…

  • Rose Red – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Heart/flower print (Love Blossoms dsp), 3 1/4 x 4 1/4
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 1/4, add printed piece on it and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Wild Wasabi – 1/8 x 3 1/4, cut two and add to card front
  • Whisper White – 2 x 3 3/4, punch top using scallop tag topper punch, corner round bottom corners, stamp greeting using Real Red and stem/leaves using Wild Wasabi, punch out hearts using Itty Bitty Accents punch from Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and add to tag.
  • Add piece of Wild Wasabi Seam Binding to the top, tie using Whisper White Baker’s Twine, add tag to card front using dimensionals

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!
