Falling Flowers

Happy Saturday everyone! Well today marks day 1 of my 10 day stay-cation! I have lots of crafting plans for this time here at home, but first, I must find the top of the craft table! What a chore! Anyhow, before I share today's project, I want to fill you in on a special deal from Stampin' Up! For the month of July, for every $50 you spend, you will be given a coupon for $5 toward ANY purchase in August! You must have a valid email account in order to participate, as they will email your coupon code to you. You must not lose that code as they are not maintaining records of these codes and they are not supplying demonstrators a list of mailed codes. They are leaving that up to you....but there is NO limit on the number of coupon codes you can earn! Those could really add up! And to sweeten the pot, for anyone that places an order using the Hostess code: FT9YEUVC for at least $75 before shipping and tax, I will send you a package of the brand new Metallic Enamel Shapes as a special gift from me, that is in addition to your coupon code from SU! This code will remain in effect until July 31st.
Ok, so on to today's project!
See the supply list below
Cut Melon Mambo 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at4 1/4" for the card base.
Blushing Bride cut 3 3/4" x 5" and embossed with the Elegant Dots TIEF and adhere to the card base
Cut Very Vanilla with the largest Oval Framelit from the Layering Ovals Collection and stamp the flourish from the Falling Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo ink and adhere to front of card.
Cut a piece of Pink Pirouette 2 1/2" x 3/4" and stamp Congratulations from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhere to the front of the card. Finally stamp the flower from Falling Flowers in Melon Mambo ink onto a scrap piece of Blushing Bride cardstock and cut with the coordinating framelit and adhere to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals and finally add pearls to the center of the flower and to the pods in the Flourish.
Happy Stamping!

Happy Spring and Happy Birthday #imbringingbirthdaysback

Hello and Happy March 1st! One more day closer to Spring! I don’t know about you, but Spring is probably my most favorite season of all! Everything is so fresh, clean and new again. I love it.

Anyhoo, I want to let you know that I have decided to participate in the #imbringingbirthdaysback movement, started by Stampin’ Up!’s ® own Shannon West. I want to share in making YOUR birthday something special, so that is what inspired today’s card share and I would LOVE to send you a birthday card on your birthday, you just need to send me your name and address along with your birthday, using the “contact me” up above on the navigation bar and I will personally mail you a birthday card on your birthday!

For today’s card, I used Mint Macaron cut 8 ½” x 5 ½” scored and folded at 4 ¼” for the card base. I then cut a piece of DSP from the “Itsmy Party” DSP pack, 5 ¼” x 4” and adhered it to the card base. I then cut another piece of Mint Macaron 3 ¼” x 4 ¼” and a piece of Mellon Mambo 3” x 4” and I embossed the Mellon Mambo piece with the Lucky Stars TIEF and adhered that to the Mint Macaron piece. I then took a piece of CrushedCurry and cut that to 3 ½” x 1 ½” and adhered that side ways across the card. I then cut another layering piece of MintMacaron 1 ¾” x 3 ½” and a piece of WhisperWhite 1 ½” x 3 ¼” and stamped the balloon strings from the stamp set, Balloon Celebration using Memento Tuxedo Black™ ink added a stamped Mellon Mambo ribbon (also in the stamp set) and adhered it to the layering piece of Mint Macaron. I adhered that down to the card base. I then stamped one of the large balloon shapes onto scrap CrushedCurry and stamped the inside with CrushedCurry ink using the “spatter” stamp in the set for a tone on tone effect. I then stamped and punched a small balloon from the same Crushed Curry cardstock and 2 each of Mellon Mambo and Mint Macaron all also with the same tone on tone. I then adhered them to the balloon strings using Stampin’Dimensionals ™.  As a final touch, I stamped Happy Birthday onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut ½” x 3” and I bannered the one end and placed that with Dimensionals also.
So, what are your thoughts? Let me know below in the comments. I look forward to hearing what you think. In the meantime, Happy Stamping and have a great day, til next time,
