Conv Swap 2015 2Happy Friday Stampers!  I wanted to share another Sneak Peek on my 2nd Swap.   I didn’t have time to write down all the supplies used for this one but will post the full card next week when I get home!

All I can say is I’m loving the New In-Colors this year and who doesn’t like Ice Cream????

I am in LOVE with this set called “Sprinkles of Life” (139971) and it’s this years Ronald McDonald House set!  With every stamp set bought Stampin’ Up! donates $3.00 to the Ronald McDonald House! How awesome is that! Plus this one also has a matching punch! Of course it does!!

Build a Blossom Birthday Card

Build a Blossom BirthdayEvening Stampers,

I wanted to share this card I made for my Mom's Birthday. I am really LOVING the new Build a Blossom Set from Stampin' Up! and of course with the coordinating punch set.

This is a 2 step stamp set. What did I do? How did I do it? What did I use?


Stamp set:  Build a Blossom, Teeny Tiny wishes
Ink: Regal Rose, Blushing Bride, Choclate Chip, Pear Pizzazz
Cardstock: Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Build a Blossom Punch, Modern Label & Word window punch, Eyelet border punch, 1 1/4 cirle punch, Dazzling Diamond Glitter

1.  Using Blushing Bride ink stamp the solid image on Whisper White cardstock, then with Regal Rose Stamp the Out Line image on top of that.  Stamp your out line leaf image on Pear Pizzazz cardstock with Pear Pizzazz ink – Punch out all your images.

2.  I attached Chocolate Chip cardstock to the base of the card which is Blushing Bride and used the eyelet border punch on the bottom half.  

3.  With the Teeny Tiny wishes stamp set stamp your sentiment with chocolate ink and punch out using the Word Window Punch.

4.  Using Pear Pizzazz Cardstock punch out your shape with the Modern label punch and attach the sentiment to it. Punch out a 1 1/4 inch circle in Regal Rose or Blushing Bride. It doesn't matter what color you won't see it.

5.  Layer your Petals on the 1 1/4 inch Circle punch, attach the center with dimensionals – attach your flower with dimensionals to your card.

That is it! Hope you liked this card. I've got some more shares coming. Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Happy Stampin',
