Birthday Blossoms

Another card I made with Betsy’s Blossoms, from the soon to be released catalog. It features a few new In Colors as well: Primrose Petals and Gumball Green. The colors are bold and bright, and the images are also bold and graphic, so I kept it pretty simple.

The base is Primrose Petals card stock, layered with Whisper White. I stamped the large blossom image in Gumball Green ink, which is a nice bright green. From the same stamp set, I used another flower image, this time stamped two times-once in Primrose Petals and once in Daffodil Delight. I cut out the center of the Primrose Petals flower and attached it to the center of the Daffodil Delight flower. I also cut in between each petal and flared them slightly.

The ribbon is 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain in Daffodil Delight. I tied it around the Whisper White layer and stamped “Happy Birthday” from Happiest Birthday Wishes in Primrose Petals ink.

Clean & Simple (CAS) Thank You Card

Normally, I’m not one for clean and simple. I like a lot of fluff on my cards 🙂 Furthermore, I’m late to the Inspired by Nature party because while I’ve had this set for a while, I’ve never used it. We planted some pink coneflowers in our garden over the summer, so I decided now would be a good time to put some ink to that stamp.

I used Gina K Luxury Base Weight White card stock. It’s great for a one layer card because it’s super thick and sturdy. I inked the stamp using my Stampin Up Markers–the stems with Pear Pizzaz, the flowers with Blushing Bride and a little bit of Melon Mambo, plus Soft Suede for the flowers’ centers.

The sentiment is actually 2 separate stamps from Thank You Kindly. I stamped “thanks” with Blushing Bride ink and the other with Soft Suede ink.

I wish there was more to say, but that’s it! The thing that took the longest was coloring on the stamp with the markers. The rest of the card was done in just a few minutes .

Congratulations Card


WOW! The font on this “congratulations” stamp is just beautiful! It’s called Well Scripted and again, I ordered it in clear mount. It couldn’t be easier to use.

The card base is striped Kraft (from Taste of Textiles) and I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.

Then, I used the butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and my Big Shot to decorate the rest of the card front. The butterflies are made from Melon Mambo, Apricot Appeal, and Baja Breeze card stock. They’re attached with Mini Glue Dots in a cascading pattern.
