Thanks so much!

Hi All, here is my other card to the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO246).

Yep, I have used Betsy’s Blossoms again… absolutely in love with this set! I thought I would create a “Thanks so much” card in order to thank you all for checking out my blog. In this card, I’m showcasing a few of the In Colors: Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit.

  • I stamped the leaf image from Betsy’s Blossoms in Gumball Green to create a background on the Floral District Designer Series Paper, and I have to say I love how unique this turns out, especially with the matching Gumball Green 3/8” Stitched Satin Ribbon.
  • The sentiment came from the Tiny Tags stamp set, and it was punched out using the Jewelry Tag Punch. This set is a great way to add a sentiment to the card without overwhelming the design.
  • The Whisper White cardstock was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder for the some nice texture.
  • The flower image was punched out using the 1” Circle Punch, and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensional on the square which was popped out using the 1-1/4” Square Punch.
  • Of course, adding the Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centre of the flowers gives a perfect finishing touch to the card.

Hello, Friend

Hello everyone, this is my very first post since I created this blog last week, so I thought I would start off by posting a “hello, friend” card. I also thought I would give it a try to create a card for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO245). I have been a fan of the blog, and again this is the very first time I submitted a card 🙂

All images on my card came from the Betsy’s Blossoms stamp set, except for the “hello, friend” sentiment which came from the Little Friends stamp set. Betsy’s Blossoms is such a versatile set that I can see myself using on cards for different occasions. I especially love the little birdie!

  • The big blossom image was used to create a subtle background on the Tangerine Tango cardstock
  • The birdie was stamped twice. I snipped out the whole birdie from the first image, and just the wing from the second image. I then popped the wing up using Stampin’ Dimensional
  • The stem of leaves was cut out using the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die
  • I realized if you give the Seam Binding Ribbon a scratch using your fingernail, it will curl up, which adds more interest to the card
  • The patterned paper is from Stampin’ Up! Floral District Designer Series Paper collection
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels are a quick way to embellish the layered flower image
