You know the drill….it is time to see how I “stepped it up a bit” from yesterdays card – some of you have an INSTANT like and then many of you could take either one.
This stamp set/bundle, Bunch of Blossoms is a versatile one and when I was typing up this post I found another great card that did before and there are some great tips with it – you can CLICK HERE to see that post and HERE for another (silly Susan, it was a weekend post before but heck – what can I say….it’s a keeper set.) 😎
Here you go….side by side – YOU DECIDE! Darn, the camera does not do these cards justice but I think that you will see the close ups that have for you – the POP of color is fun and remember – this paper pack, Tasty Treats is NOW A SAB FREEBIE!!!!
Personally, I think that it was great that SU added 3 super papers to choose as a SAB item…we all love paper! (make sure that you see the offerings below at the end and use the correct numbers to get them FREE with a $50+ order)
This fun and bold stripe DSP makes the watermelon wonder flower POP off the page. I love yellows but I do think that So Saffron wins my heart because you can put it with bolds, and it works…..you can put it with subtles, and it works….it is just a great color with so many papers that you put with it.
Do you see the subtles enamel shapes? Isn’t it amazing how these little fun shapes add not only a dimension….but it adds a fun flair – with the saying, less is best works! When I use them I like to use 3 of them….there is something about “3” that works each and every time.
The sparkle embossing folder was used on both cards but it is interesting at how “a color” embossed gives a totally different feel. The size of the embossed piece is 4″ X 4 1/4″ and I just adhered that with fast fuse before the “fun” is added just like yesterday.
Something that I did not mention yesterday, I used a bone folder to gently curl the flower petals before I adhered them to the circle that I put the flower on. Helping the fibers of the paper to get softer with the bone folder makes a world of difference.
If you wanted to “conserve” DSP…you could take the time to measure the paper to fit in between the embossed piece…I did not – but you could easily do so with little extra time.
Same drill as always, a pretty envelope to finish the fun card. I really hope that the mailman does smile when he see a pretty envelope!
Here is your card to PIN….I had an email that some were having issues PINNING yesterday. You should be able to just hover over the picture and the “P” will pop up and you are good to go. I will check into it tomorrow to see if there is a glitch…..
I have had a L O N G past several days and if you have emailed me, I will be playing “catch up” tomorrow. It is amazing at how tired you get from driving and also how tiring it is just being away from your own home, your own routine. I am so glad that I took time to take my Dad to see his brother. It was fun for the 2 of us to be together.
The amount of days is changing again….only 6 more days of SAB left….only 6 more days let of DOUBLE PAW PRINTS for you! I will be back on Tuesday but feel free to email me if you have any questions or need help. Monday is my “catch up” day so I will do my best to get back to you!
I am off again today to spend a day with Jeanie and Rosanne – we are going to a class and I know that we are going to have a FUN time….this was planned WAY IN ADVANCE before I knew that I would be going to Uncle George’s….but you know how we always find that inner energy to make it happen and I am SUPER excited to learn some new techniques.
