Oh So Delicate Dahlias

The Delicate Dahlia photopolymer stamp set is an absolute treasure! It is a one of the items you can earn for FREE in the Sale-a-Bration catalog! (now through 9/30/21 with a qualifying purchase) I wanted to make a sweet and simple card using this set to show how to create beautiful cards with few items!

I started with one of my favorite color pallets! Smoky Slate has been a favorite neutral background for me for years! And my favorite color is lavender- so Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather fit the bill!

I chose to use a tone on tone (same ink color on the same cardstock color) for the Smoky Slate background and stamped the lined images from the stamp set. The focal point pieces will cover any overlapping stamped images in the center. Once the background was stamped, I took a piece 4 1/4″x 3″ of Basic White and stamped the lined image with Gorgeous Grape first. I find that the lined image in a dark color is easier to line up with the “fill” stamp. Next, I adhered the mat piece of Highland Heather to the Basic White piece. Then I placed Dimensionals on the back to pop it up on the card base for more depth.

I wanted to keep the dahlia the focal point, so I used a small die from the Tasteful Labels dies and a bow made from Linen thread. Wink of Stella clear was the final step to finish this card.

This is a great card to make multiples of so you can have some on hand! Be sure to take advantage of the Sale-A-Bration sale!

Sweet Tulips

I will truly miss the Tranquil Tulips hostess set!! It was a popular set with my girls this past year! The two step Stampin makes the final product so realistic! I made this card for one of my SWAPS for On Stage the other week.  I loved it so much that I am using it for the Sweet & Simple cards too!

Sahara Sand paired with the Pinewood Plank Embossing Folder created that Greige color that is so popular right now!  I stamped off the more solid petal and full strength with the detailed part of the petals.  There is Wink of Stella on the pistils too!

Be sure to stock up on your favorite colors while they last!  There are several DSP packs that are SOLD OUT!  Delightful Daisy, Coffee Break, Petal Garden, A Whole Lot of Lovely, Fast Fuse refill/full; Pansy Punch, and Fluttering Embossing Folder!

Simply Wonderful Roses

Do you ever start a card/project, and it doesn’t go as planned?  I do all the time.  In fact, I have an entire draw full of “potential” cards! I finally used this card base that has been in my stash! It’s so easy and quick to make!  I am making it for a SWAP for our upcoming ON Stage local event in April!  (hint: it’s also a Try it Night card!)

First I started with Smoky Slate ink and stamped the big rose stamp randomly on Smoky Slate cardstock.  Then I cut out the leaves with Basic Black.


I used Black Momento ink and the Rose Garden Thinlits to cut out the sentiment.  I love how the stamp set has a frame to make the die piece pop! A little bling and ribbon. Done!
