Stampin Stray Ducklings April Blog Waddle

Welcome to our monthly Blog Waddle! This month we are featuring projects for Mother’s Day and Spring. I decided to make a birthday card, but the sentiment can easily be for a different occasion. You may have arrived here from Kim Baker’s blog. Following me is Lori Helvick’s blog. Let each of us know what you think of these fantastic cards! 

I started my card with a Blusing Bride base and layered a piece of In Good Taste DSP (#152494) on the base. Next, I ran a piece of Very Vanilla through my Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (#150673) using one of the Greenery Embossing Folders (#152716) and layered it on a scrap of Blushing Bride punched with the Triple Banner Punch (#138292). Next I added a Gold Hoop Embellishment (#152474) and the stamped pieces from the Forever Greenery stamp set (#152599). It is a part of the Forever Fern Bundle (#154094). Then I die cut pieces of Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride and gold foil using the Forever Flourishing Dies (#152714). I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set (#149346) in Blushing Bride on a piece of Very Vanilla, die cut with the Stitched Shapes Dies (#152323) circle. I added a Gilded Gem (#152478) and finished the card with a bow of Gold 3/8″ Metallic Edged Ribbon (#144146).

I am most intrigued with creating clusters of embellishments for cards and scrapbook pages. Have you tried to create any clusters?

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Birthdays

Welcome to our March Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring birthday cards!

You may have arrived here from Annette’s blog. She had a fabulous project! I chose the Timeless Tulips Bundle (#153793) for my birthday card, as I have several birthdays to celebrate in the next 2 weeks. The card base is Basic White with the corners rounded using the Detailed Trio Punch (#146320).

I used the Ornate Layers Dies (#152726) for the next 2 layers. The bottom layer in Gorgeous Grape and the next layer in Purple Posy. Then I stamped the tulips in Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather and the leaves and stems in Pear Pizazz. I fussy cut the leaves and stems and smallest tuplips. The large tulips and curvy leaves were punched out. A bit of ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo (#152468) ties the flower stems together. The sentiment from Here’s A Card (#149438) is stamped in Gorgeous Grape and the ends are punched using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (#152883).
