Basket Of Blooms for a Friend

A basket of flowers can stay fresh for a long time, when made with paper.

All you need is the Basket Of Blooms Stamp Set, and the Small Bloom Punch. I happen to have an extra Small Bloom Punch, and I will send it to the first person who places a 100.00 order with me, and contacts me with their name and address.

It won’t be hard to find $100.00 of items you want, because this is the day, August 4th, everyone can order from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog! Yipee!

Even if you aren’t my first customer to order, you’ll still receive my August Host Code Gift for a qualifying order, and a chance to win the drawing prize. You’ll find all the details below, plus instructions for today’s card.

Basket Of Blooms.

 

Instructions

First, make the tablecloth with the Buffalo Check Background Stamp. Place the stamp on the Stamparatus lid, apply Pear Pizzazz Ink and stamp on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. I inked and stamped several times to get good coverage.

Cut a section with the long, rectangle die from Ornate Layers.

 

Stamp the basket from the Basket Of Blooms Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock. Fussy cut the basket, and color it with Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends.

Stamp five flowers in Bumblebee Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, color with a Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend, and use the Small Bloom Punch for cutting. I stamped the center with a tiny stamp from the retired stamp set, Thoughtful Blooms, and Cinnamon Cider Ink. If you don’t have the stamp set, you can improvise.

 

Use the Well Written Die to cut the word “friend” from Crumb Cake Cardstock. Be careful not to lose the “i.”

 

Make the card base with Crumb Cake Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.  Cut a layer from Whisper White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″.

Now that you have all the pieces, arrange them, so you can see where to stamp the six leaves, in Pear Pizazz Ink, on the white layer. Color the leaves with a Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend, and glue the layer to the card base.

Glue the tablecloth, “friend,” and one flower flat. Place the basket and four flowers on Mini Dimensionals, and attach.

Now all you need to do is decide which friend will be receiving this lovely “basket of blooms.”

Swinging Girl Silhouette

The silhouette of this swinging girl brings back wonderful childhood memories. She is from the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set, which you can see in my Product List below.

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set, Birds& More Dies, Ornate Frames Dies, Forever Greenery paper; #silhouettescenes #keepdreaming #swinging #childhood #dreaming #silhouettesoncards #cardthemes #cardchallenges #birds&more #cardinstructions #cardmaking #papercrafting #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy

Swinging

 

Today’s Step-by-Step Instructions:

Cut Just Jade Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Trim Forever Greenery Designer Paper to 4″ X 5 1/4″, and use the Birds & More Die to cut the leafy circle in the middle. I positioned it a little toward the top, leaving room for the sentiment.

 

Cut regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock to 4″ X 5 1/4″. Place on the Stamparatus with the Designer Paper on top. This allows you to position the swinging girl. Press the stamp to the lid, remove the Designer Paper, ink the stamp with Memento Black Ink, and press to the white paper. This may only make sense if you are familiar with a Stamparatus. You can check it out in my Product List.

 

Glue the two papers together, leaving the leafy portion free. Then, use the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting, and glue to the card base. This gives a nice, finished border.

 

“Keep dreaming” is from the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set. Stamp it in Just Jade Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. Attach with four Mini Dimensionals. Doesn’t this make you want to swing?

Stamp the sentiment in Memento Black Ink onThick Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with the smaller Ornate Layers Die. Stamp toward the left side, leaving room for the goat.

Nothing’s Better Than Cocktails!

I had so much fun making this summery card. Are you thirsty? Lots of exciting news this first day of July, so keep scrolling.

By Su Mohr for TGIF; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set, Love You More Than Dies, Rainbow Glimmer paper, Ornate Layers Dies; #nothing'sbetterthan #loveyoumorethan #cocktails #drinksoncards #cocktailsoncards #summercards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stampinblends #Stampinup #rainbowglimmerpaper

Cocktails Day

 

Before giving instructions for today’s card, I get to announce the winner of June’s drawing for The Gang’s All Meer Stamp Set…………Congratulations Rita! I will be mailing you the stamp set, along with the ribbon, around the middle of July.

Everyone who purchased a minimum of 50.00 from me will be receiving the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. Woo Hoo!

 

I think you’re going to love my July offers, which you can see below!

 

Now for today’s instructions:

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Use the largest Ornate Layers Die to cut a layer from regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock. Adhere to the card base.

 

Stamp three cocktail glasses from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock.

Stamp the “drink” on top of the glasses in three colors of ink: Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, and Flirty Flamingo.

Color the umbrellas and fruit with the same colors of Stampin’ Blends, as shown.

 

Cut the glasses with the Love You More Than Die, and place on Dimensionals. I probably went overboard, but they are nice and sturdy.

 

Now for making the word “cocktails” with the Love You More Than Die. Cut a 2 1/2″ X 1″ piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet, remove one side of the paper, and attach a 2 1/2″ X 1″ piece of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. Place the “cocktails” die on top of the Glimmer Paper, and run it through your die cutting machine. Turn it over, and run through a second time to insure a good cut. Free the word, remove the other side of paper, and stick to your card front.

 

To complete the sentiment, stamp the words “today is a” and “kind of day” in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. I used a retired Christmas Label Die for cutting, but you could use the Classic label Punch, or a different die.

You can see the entire stamp set in my Product List below, which gives you lots of fun words as options. Isn’t this a great set?

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Stamp Your Own Patterned Paper

It’s fun to stamp your own background paper. Keep scrolling to see how you can create this card.

background stamping

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″.

Layer with Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″,  embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.

Cut a second piece of Whisper White Cardstock, 2 1/4″ X 5 1/2″, emboss with a Greenery Embossing Folder, and adhere to the middle of the card front. (See above photo).

Use the largest Stitched So Sweetly Die to cut a third piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Randomly stamp the flower from Butterly Wishes, and adhere this layer as shown. TIP: Glue in the middle, leaving the right and left edges free, because they are higher.

I used Blushing Bride Ink, but this flower would be pretty in any color.

 

Now for creating “you” with the Playful Alphabet Dies. Cut a 2″ X 1″ piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet, remove one side of the paper, and attach a 2″ X 1″ piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock. Place the y-o-u dies on top of the cardstock, and run it through your die cutting machine. Turn it over, and run through a second time to insure a good cut. Free the letters, remove the other side of paper, and stick to your card front. The removal dots show, but I think it adds character, right?

 

Stamp “Make Me Smile” in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die. Adhere with glue under “make” and a Dimensional under “smile.” 

Add a few Woven Thread Sequins for sparkle.

Wasn’t that fun? Now you can stamp your own background!

 

TGIF was my inspiration.
