Floral Boutique Suite Again

Can't seem to get enough of the Floral Boutique Suite! These products are just gorgeous!




For my card today, I used just a portion of the smaller thinlet -  I ran it through the big shot and carefully snipped this rose.  Isn't it pretty? 



Here are some photos that I thought would help explain more about this rose:

Floral Boutique

Sharing another beautiful card using the Floral Boutique Suite.  As a University of Michigan grad and alumni, this color combination makes my heart sing!!




 The Detailed Floral Thinlets make this card look like it took awhile to create - but in truth, they make it very easy to create! 

I started with a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock..  I used both of the thinlets to cutout the beautiful pattern.

I layered this onto a Whisper White card base cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".

I used two different pieces of designer paper from the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper and layered them over a piece of a delicate white doily.

I stamped the words and cut them out with the Layering Oval framelits.  To finish the card, I added a small bow made with Navy Baker's Twine.

Floral Boutique Suite

The Floral Boutique Suite is gorgeous - use it to create striking cards- I think I actually gasped when I first saw it in the catalog!  Love at first sight, lol!   The stamp set and thinlets are paired with whisper white and navy blue products - washi tape, bakers twine and the designer paper - love it!  My card today uses almost everything in this suite - seen on page 76-77 of our annual catalog.



To create this card, I started with a piece of 4 1/4" x 11" Whisper White cardstock - scored it at 5 1/2".  I ran this piece through the Big Shot with the smaller thinlet and the cutting edge.   

Tip:  For best results with these thinlets, use the following sandwich (from bottom to top) :

New Big Shot Platform 
Precision Base Plate
Cardstock
Thinlet
Standard Cutting Pad  
You will then want to place the cardstock with the thinlets still in place and use the die brush over this to help remove the smaller pieces.  


The rest of the card front was completed with strips of the Floral Boutique Washi tape.

The inside of the card has a piece of the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper measuring 2" x 4 1/4".  



Here is the video created by Stampin' Up! that shows how to use the thinlet dies.

Touches of Texture Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Cruise Make and Takes

Here are the beautiful cards we got to make on the Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Cruise - I think they are gorgeous!   The stamp sets we used were Touches of Texture and One Big Meaning.  I used the French version of  One Big Meaning stamp set since we were in France the day we did our Make and Takes - such fun!!







This card was actually a tag that I turned into a card.





One of the things I loved about these cards were how we incorporated the Moroccan Designer Washi tape onto the cards, and on the envelopes.  I must admit I haven't been a big washi tape fan until I made these cards - and I am now a happy convert!  I love it - and especially love it on these cards!

Here are all the supplies used on these cards.  Please click on any image and you will be taken to my online store where you can order these awesome products.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are enjoying the weekend!

Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop - Two Step Stamping

 



Welcome to the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring projects that use two step stamps. 






 I fell in love with the Touches of Texture stamp set while on the recent Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Cruise.  We used this stamp set to make our gorgeous make and takes- I will share pictures of them tomorrow so please stop back to see them! 

I  love the rich colors found in the Morocan nights designer paper, and pulled colors from the dsp for my inks and cardstock to create this card.    

This set I guess isn't technically a two step stamp set - but rather you use the stamps to "watercolor" the outlined images.  I love the look! What do you think?






Supplies used on my card are listed below - please click on any image to shop in my online store!   And don't miss out!  Get a $5 bonus coupon to use towards a purchase during August!  









Measurements used for this card:  
Dapper Denim- 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2"
Very Vanilla -  3 1/2" x 4 3/4", inside panel 4" x 5 1/4", scrap for word banner
Bermuda Bay - small piece to punch 1 3/4 inch circle
Moroccan DSP -  Cajun Craze patterned strip 1/2" x 4 1/2", scraps for banner pieces

Please feel free to email me if you have questions on how this card went together!  I love to hear from you!
