Welcome to the Kre8tors July Blog Hop, where “floral” is the theme.
It’s hard to believe that next month, demonstrators will be seeing the new Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog, but we will! This made me think of my favorite “year-round” set from last year’s Holiday Catalog that carried over into the Annual Catalog. Let me re-introduce the First Frost Stamp Set and Frosted Bouquet Dies, which can be ordered right now!
I began with a Thick Whisper White card base, and a rectangle of Thick Whisper White Cardstock that I watercolored with my Aqua Painter and Seaside Spray Ink. This was done by transferring the ink from the ink pad to an acrylic Clear Block, and picking up the color with the Aqua Painter brush. In addition to brushing across the paper, I flicked some spots for interest. Then, I trimmed it to size, creating a scalloped edge, with a Be Mine Stitched Die.
The three flowers were stamped in Terracotta Tile Ink on Whisper White cardstock, and cut with their die. Next, I stamped the middle branch in Pear Pizzazz Ink, and used it’s die for cutting. The leaves on the left were cut with a die from Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, and the two sprigs were cut with a die from Pear Pizzazz Cardstock and Whisper White Cardstock. I gave the cuttings and background texture with the Subtle Texture Embossing Folder.
The sentiment, “for you,” is from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set, which I stamped in Pear Pizzazz Ink on Whisper White cardstock. It’s cute, little, die is in the Bouquet Bunch Die Set, with a real hole for the Linen Thread tie.
To complete the card, I decorated the envelope flap with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder, shown in the first picture.
The colors were inspired by Global Design Project. What a pretty combination!

If Dinosaurs Came to Town was one of my daughter’s favorite books. I recognized the Pteranodon (Ter-AN-oh-don) in the Dino Days stamp set, because of this book. See it in the upper, right corner?
Of course, I had to get Stampin’ Up’s! new Dino Days Bundle! And, the pteranodons asked to be on this card, because they thought they’d look really nice in the Paper Player’s colors.
So, I agreed, and used their stamp from the Dino Days Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue, and Granny Apple Green Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I cut them with their Dino Days Die. Don’t they look happy?
The Pteranodon’s background is made of layers:
1. Blueberry Bushel card base 2. Whisper White Cardstock 3. Blueberry Bushel Cardstock (cut with Rectangles Stitched Die) 4. Whisper White Cardstock 5. Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (cut with Rectangles Stitched Die).
The Pteranodons wanted to say, “from all of us,” so I found this sentiment in the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. It fit perfectly in a Stitched Nested Label Die. After adding Dimensionals, my Dino Days card was complete.
Thank you for sharing in sweet memories of my daughter’s childhood, and bedtime story time.

And, more inspiration from the design team using this beautiful color combination:
Today’s challenge combines an airplane flying boy with an “ombre technique.”
My ombre design was created with a stamp from the Waterfront Stamp Set and Night of Navy Ink. I began stamping at the bottom of a piece of Whisper White cardstock, and without re-inking the stamp, I stamped a second and third time. This was repeated three times, and then I cut the layer to size with a Rectangles Stitched Die.
In addition to ombre, I wanted to use the sketch from the Fusion challenge. Here’s a look.
To go along with the sketch, I adhered two rows of Whisper White Flax Ribbon with Tear&Tape.
Next, I stamped my airplane flying boy, from the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set, in Night of Navy Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. After cutting him with a Stitched Shapes Oval Die, he took his place on top of Dimensionals
Before gluing my ombre striped background to a Night of Navy card base, I stamped the sentiment in Night Of Navy Ink.
“Time for a new adventure!” is from the Well Said Stamp Set.
The envelope is one I had on hand, and I can’t remember stamping the flap, but thought it looked good with this card.
Thank you for visiting today. In case you’re wondering about the paper I used for photographing, it’s from See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper. I included it in my Product List, so you can see all 12 designs in the pack. Clicking on the picture takes you to my store for shopping. Enjoy!
