Stampin’ Up’s World Card Making Event was yesterday, and it was fantastic! At the end of the event, a surprise announcement was made: FREE SHIPPING coming soon!!! Get your wish lists ready, so you can take advantage of free shipping on Tuesday, October 4th!


The first card in the event was created with the Cottage Rose Bundle, demonstrated by CEO Sara and her mom, Shelli. I’m regretting not having the bundle to make this exact card, but I used the supplies to create a similar card using the Blessings Of Home Bundle.

I began by stamping the smaller portion of the floral bouquet in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used four Stampin’ Blends for coloring: Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Mint Macaron, and Daffodil Delight (I didn’t have So Saffron).

After coloring, I used a Flowers Of Home Die for cutting the flowers, along with a die to cut two sprigs from Crumb Cake Cardstock.

The background was created with a large, Blessings Of Home stamp, stamped in Crumb Cake Ink on Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/2″. This layer was glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Although, Sara and Shelli attached the layer with Dimensionals.


“Have a perfect birthday” is from the Blessings Of Home Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink on So Saffron Cardstock, 3 1/2″ X 1/4″. I attached the sentiment and flower with Dimensionals, and glued the sprigs in place.

For the final touch, I added five Iridescent Pearls, colored with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend, as Sara and Shelli showed us.
