Falling Flowers for Mom — FMS283

It’s time for another sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  And this week our lovely Canadian friend, Jen Brum, is our hostess.  Look at this fun one:

This one had me stumped for a while.  I had some flowers on my desk that I had cut and colored for another card but didn’t end up using.  I knew I wanted to use them for a Mother’s Day card, so I decided to make them work for this sketch.  I may have taken some creative liberties with the sketch, but hopefully you can see it in my card.

I used a couple of retiring products on this card — the Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP and my favorite retiring In Color, Watermelon Wonder.  The images were stamped on Shimmery White card stock and colored with a blender pen and ink pads.  The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card with the sketch.  We love seeing what you make.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Fall Birthday Bouquet — Monday Montage #80

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of ten stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

Stampin’ Up! offers some great stamps and dies with flowers and leaves.  Sometimes I have a hard time choosing which one to use.  For today’s card, I couldn’t decide so I ended up using two.  Why not?  Here’s a card that mainly uses Falling Flowers and includes a leaf from the Flourish Thinlits Dies.

fall-birthday-bouquetI wanted to make a Fall bouquet, so I used a color palette of Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, and Delightful Dijon.  The dsp is from the Petals & Paisleys pack.

The sentiment is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.  It would be correct to assume that my desk is a big mess now after pulling out so many different things to make this card.  It’s fun to mix and match though!

Falling Flowers Birthday — Monday Montage #76

Monday Montage Banner -- October

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of ten stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

I needed to make a birthday card for my sweet mother-in-law, who has been having a hard time since her knee replacement surgery last month.  I wanted to make something cheery and pretty, and I haven’t been able to play with the Falling Flowers bundle very much, so I thought it would be perfect for the occasion.

Falling Flowers Birthday

I started by stamping the beautiful flourish from the stamp set with Versamark ink onto a Pool Party card base.  I stamped the sentiment, which is a single stamp called Stylized Birthday, onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, which I cut out with a die from the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies.

I stamped the flowers with Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach, and Daffodil Delight ink and colored them with a blender pen.  White Perfect Accents were added to the flower centers after they were cut out with the coordinating dies.

Falling Flowers Birthday Close UpThe fabulously detailed leaves were cut using the coordinating dies from Old Olive cardstock.

I added a piece of a Delicate White Doily and a bow made from Black Baker’s twine to finish things off.

Thinking of Falling Flowers — FMS247

It’s Wednesday, and that means we have another sketch for you over at Freshly Made Sketches.  We have been lucky to have Shannon Jaramillo with us as one of our guest designers.  She is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous sketch for us that allows for so many possibilities:

I needed to make a sympathy card for one of my sweet stamping sisters, and I wanted to make something bright and pretty, like her.  I used a new set I hadn’t inked up yet, Falling Flowers, which has a coordinating set of framelits.

Flowers for YouI started by sponging some Daffodil Delight ink onto a piece of Irresistibly Floral dsp.  The flowers were stamped onto Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, and Daffodil Delight cardstock with their corresponding ink pads.

The circle was die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies out of Soft Sky cardstock.  The Vellum cardstock scalloped circle was also cut with these framelits.

Flowers for You Close UpWe hope you’ll join us and make your own card using the sketch and post it to the gallery.  We love to see what you make!  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has for you for a big dose of creative inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
