Delightfully Detailed Suite meets Botanical Bouquet

 I love the Delightfully Detailed Suite and the Notecards in it. The first card uses one of the Mint Macaron cards with some of the Laser Cut DSP on top. The sentiment was stamped on to a Stitched Shape Circle. The flowers and foliage are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamps and dies.

Here is the Blackberry Bliss version with silver Mini Sequin Trim.

I made a box with the Git Bag Punch Board to go with the Mint Macaron card.
I used the Botanical Bliss stamps and dies for the tag.

This is the gift box without the tag.

More Varied Vases

Here are some varied Vases Cards made using three of the new In Colours - Blueberry Bushel, Lovely Lipstick and Call Me Clover. I also used some of the matching 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack. The Label for the sentiment was die cut using a die from the Lakeside Framelits.
I used the Seaside Embossing Folder for the background.

I love these bright colours to showcase the Varied Vases Stamp Set. I coloured the flowers in using a Blender Pen so that I could control how dark the shade of colour was. I used a small flower from the set for the background.

Varied Vases

I ran a class using the Varied Vases Bundle last week. We started with a single vase for the first card.
The Pool Party Card stock was embossed using oneof the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.
I used some Crystal Effects (retired) on the Vase to make it look like glass. You could use Fine Tip Glue Pen to get the same effect.

I used an Aquapainter on the second card for the water. Two new colours were used for the flowers - Mango Melody and Gorgeous Grape. The returning Flirty Flamingo was also used.

The third card was inspired by a Demonstration at On Stage by Val moody. I used the Stamparatus to get the row of vases. It was so easy to line them up by moving the plate along the hinges!

The last card is a simpler version.

Rooted In Nature

One of the new Bundles that we will be using at my Craft Day on June 2nd is Rooted in Nature
The first card was cased from On Stage but tweaked a bit using a different arrangement and sentiment.
The dies include some leaf embossing dies which add interest to a card.

The second card could be used as a Christmas Card if you added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the trees and possibly some Glimmery Embossing Paste for snow.

The third card uses a masking technique which someone used on You tube with the Lovely As a Tree stamp set.I cut out the large oak tree using the matching die and adhered it with dimensionals. Sponge Daubers got used a lot for this card and I got very inky fingers!

The last card uses the new Grapefruit Grove Cardstock with several leaves stamped as a background.
Lots of stamping and die cutting in this card. A bit of flower arranging too which was fun.
