Peach Breezy Wreath

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I received several new dies in the mail this week and one was the Poppy Stamps Breezy Wreath and I couldn’t wait to make something with it.

I die cut two wreaths, formed the leaves a little with my stylus and mat and attached them together with Glossy Accents.  I offset the two wreaths so the leaves were not exactly over top of each other and to make the wreath fuller.

I created several double layered petunias and attached them to the wreath. I layered the wreath over white and peach to bring out the colors of the flower and multi loop bow..

I think this would be a gorgeous wedding or sympathy card. Clean, simple and yet elegant.

Welcoming Door

Good Sunday morning!  I got the Poppy Stamps Grand Madison Door in the mail this week and couldn’t wait to play with it.  I paired it with the Rubbernecker Poppy Panel background to create a sweet old-fashioned wallpaper.

I colored the image with Regal Rose, Old Olive and So Saffron markers, spritzed lightly with water and stamped it on white cardstock.  I how I made my own designer paper with the image. I die cut the door and attached to the base of the card.

I die cut the urns from the Papertrey Door to Door Accessory Die Collection using and attached on both sides of the door. I punched several pieces of foliage using my favorite Martha Stewart Branch punch. I found it available at JoAnn’s if you still looking for one.  I arranged the foliage in the urns and attached using Glossy Accents. I punched out multiple flowers using my Fiskars 1/4” flower punch.  Several people have asked where to find this punch but I can’t find them available any longer. I formed the flowers using my stylus and mat and attached in the foliage.  I added a small wreath on the door for a finishing touch.

Another Monochromatic Belleek Inspired

Happy Saturday morning!  Yeah!  It’s the weekend. I have another monochromatic project to share with you today that I made for the Ways To Use It Challenge. I am so drawn to the Belleek Inspired technique and I thought the white cardstock embossed with the pale plum ink would be beautiful.KC Martha Stewart Punch Flowers 3 left

I love to arrange flowers and foliage around a decorative frame.  The open frame creates a great base for the spray as well as allows the lovely embossed layer to show as well.

Clean, Simple and Monochromatic Collage

The Ways To Use it Challenge on Splitcoaststampers this week was to create a monochromatic project. Rubbernecker has just released a new Collage collection with four beautiful images and I thought one of them would be perfect to use for the monochromatic challenge.

This is about as easy, clean and simple as it can get but I love the font and the silhouette flowers with dots.

I thought the embossed dotted background was perfect to pair with the image.

Take a look at all four of the new images.  These are perfect for cards making or scrapbooking.

Homespun Love Birds

We are on the downhill side of the week and I am looking forward to the weekend.  How about you?  I have another pair of love birds to share with you today.  These are from the My Favorite Things Homespun Set.

I made the birdhouse out of the backside of the designer paper used on the card base.  The  picket fence is behind the house and flower garden but it is almost covered up.  LOL!  I used the spring border to create the flower garden but covered up the flowers with punched and formed baby blossoms.  I softened the flower border with little sprigs from the branch punch.

I added ivy tendrils with tiny flowers to soften the scene a little more.
