I just got this set from the new Stampin' Up! catalog and love the flower image and the five greetings that come with it!
I also used the new Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper and the new Summer Starfruit card stock and ink. Over on my Sisters in Stamping blog this week we're sharing cards made with sets in the Nature section of the catalog, pages 70 – 95. Head over there if you'd like to check out my stamping sisters' creations!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a fun and fabulous weekend!
This sweet gift set makes a pretty birthday presentation! The uniquely made hinged gift box is perfect for holding a small treasure or candy treat. The gift card slider is a super simple, but elegantly coordinated way to present a gift card. The pretty Papaya Collage birthday card brings the set all together!
This little gift set is perfect for the sewers and crafters in your life! In addition, non-sewers/crafters will love this gift too! The pin cushion frame can be used as a mini bulletin board and all readers love pretty bookmarks! Pair these items with the matching card and your recipient is going to love this gift and be very impressed! Try this one for a fun class or camp project too!

Give something sweet to someone special! This trio of bumblebee inspired boxes will delight young and old. Fill them with a Bit-o-Honey or caramel candies for that extra special touch!

My sister asked me to make a wedding card for her and the bride's colors are yellow and gray, so this is what I came up with.
I used the Creative Elements set found on page 126 of the catalog, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Labels Collection Framelits dies, and the Adorning Accents Edgelits dies! I also used the Boho Blossoms punch to made the tiny flowers that I popped up on the card. I stamped the envelope to match and using a Daffodil Delight marker to color in the stamped image.
Finally, I added a little bit of glitter to the stamped image to give the card a soft touch of sparkle! My craft desk looked like a tornado hit it after I was done, but it was fun to make this one of a kind card as I'm usually designing for Stamp-A-Stacks, and therefore, don't always make each card so detailed or the gals would be there all night!

Remember last week when I mentioned that I love it when there are punches or Big Shot dies that coordinate with stamp set images? Well here is a set called Daydream Medallions that has a coordinating Big Shot framelits set called Floral Frames. Each of the three layers on the flower has a framelits die that you can use to cut the image out!
Using the framelits made it so easy to stamp, cut out, and layer the flower image. I also used the new Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper for the background of the card.
