March 2020 Color Fusers using Parisian Blossoms stamp set, Cherry Blossom dies, and the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder

 

It's color time!  Welcome to the March 2020 Color Fusers Blog Hop.  

 

CF March

 

I love when I am given a color challenge using colors I would never put together on my own - like Mint Macaron and Pear Pizzazz.  But I love how this project turned out using them together!

 

 

 

The floral blossoms in the Forever Blossoms stamp set worked perfectly to use all the colors well, and I love how the pop of color from the Garden Lane designer paper in Mint Macaron pulls it all together.

 

 

 

The Parisian Flourish embossing folder creates a gorgeous background!

 

This amazing background was created using the Parisian Flourish embossing folder.  I can't stop using it, it's just gorgeous!  You can see last month's project with this embossing folder here, and another with several products from the Parisian Blossoms product suite, which includes this embossing folder and stamp/die set on today's project, here.

 

 

The coloring is quick and easy with a watercolor wash on the flowers and stems, which adds just enough color.  And, although the floral spray looks great straight up,  I love the additional dimension added using the individual blossom and bud stamps and dies included in this set.

 

 

Just enough color and dimension thanks to a great stamp/die bundle and a little watercolor wash!

 

 

To create this card:

  • cut a Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock card base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", and score at 4 1/4"
  • cut a Very Vanilla layer 3 5/8" x 4 7/8" and emboss with Parisian Flourish embossing folder
  • cut a piece of designer paper 3 3/4" x 5" for layering
  • cut a strip of Very Vanilla 3" x 1/2" for the sentiment

Adhere embossed layer to designer paper at an angle, and adhere to card front with dimensional.  Stamp the floral spray, 2 blossoms, and 1 bud in Soft Suede ink.  Color the flowers with Mint Macaron and the stems and leaves with a Pear Pizzaz watercolor wash using an Aqua Painter.  Die cut and adhere to card front.  Stamp sentiment in Soft Suede ink on vanilla Cardstock, and adhere to card front over a ribbon cluster.  Embellish as desired with Mint Macaron rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone collection.

3D Tutorial Sneak Peek for March 2020

 

Today's project uses the Full of Happiness stamp set.  

 

Isn't this chick adorable?

 

The shell is cut from a coordinating die found in the Dino die set.  And the full egg is actually the stripes for the egg in the Full of Happiness stamp set stamped twice, and cut out with an oval die.  It fits perfectly!

 

And check out the vellum background!

 

This is a NEW Sale-A-Bration item coming March 3rd!  It is gorgeous!  It has an embossed pattern and a beautiful sheen.  There are 3 different colors included in the pack!  You will want this!

 

 

So Very Vellum coming soon!  Ask me how to get your pack FREE!

 

 

I finished it all off with a fun sentiment.  To create it, I stamped it once in green, than a second time in grape, and cut the words apart, mixing and matching, until I got this result.  You can do this with any sentiment stamps to create custom sentiments and greetings!

 

 

To create this card:

  • cut a Purple Posy card base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4"
  • cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of So Very Vellum (available March 3rd!)

Adhere vellum to card base.  Stamp strips twice in Highland Heather ink, stamped of once.  Color the stripes with Wink of Stella, than die cut with a matching oval die.  Die cut the cracked egg with die from the Dino die set.  Repeatedly stamp the small flower from Full of Happiness in Blushing Bride ink.  Add Noble Peacock Rhinestones to flower centers.  Stamp chick in Daffodil Delight ink, add Mango Melody beak and Black eyes.  Fussy cut, and adhere behind cracked egg.  Tie pokla dot ribbon around full egg, and arrange eggs on card front.  Stamp sentiment in Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape.  Cut out the words, and arrange as desired on card front.

Swooning over Purple Polka Dots

Creating with the Peaceful Poppies product suite.

 

Hello everyone!

 

I had the opportunity to enjoy some fun crafting time with my friend Kurstan last week while I was in California for my Spring Luau Weekend Retreat, which we co-hosted.  It is alwasy sooo fun to create with fellow demonstrators.  I chose to work with the Painted Poppies stamp set from the Peaceful Poppies product suite, in preparation for my upcoming February class-to-go, and this card came together so easily. 

 

I LOVE it!

 

 

The Peaceful Moments bundle pairs perfectly!

 

Maybe it's the colors, or the simplicity of the big flowers.  I'm not sure, but...it's a favorite!

 

The Peaceful Poppies product suite is a large grouping of products from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  It consists of 2 stamp and die bundles, which are interchangeable, plus designer paper, ribbon, embellishments and cool paper elements.  I used this product suite on my last project here as well.

 

Today's card brings in the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies designer paper, and this Blackberry Bliss polka dot print is my favorite!

 

 

Beautiful Blackberry Bliss Polka Dot paper is my favorite!

3-D Tutorial Blog Hop

Feb 3D tut hop card-2

 

Welcome back to the 3-D tutorial blog hop.  I am happy you are joining us again today!

 

One of my favorite designer papers in the Occasions catalog is from the From My Heart collection.  And although this was part of our Valentine line, it is versatile enough to use year round.  I wanted to use this favorite piece to create some non-Valentine projects, so today's post features an adorable thank you card, which coordinates with the 3-D birthday project featured in this month's tutorial.

 

 

 

Sometimes we find ourselves needing a quick card, and this one certainly fits the bill.  It's all about the paper.  This designer paper is amazing!  It's gorgeous, shiny, and red -- my favorite color!  Beautiful paper does all the work for you,.

 

From My Heart designer paper is gorgeous!

 

To create this project:

  • cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, and score at 4 1/4"
  • cut piece of Whisper White cardstck 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • cut a piece of designer paper 2 1/4" x 4 1/4"

Adhere designer paper along bottom edge of Whisper White layer.  Stamp sentiment in Memento Black ink above designer paper.  Stamp bugs, and color with blends.  Add gems as desired.  Tie a bow in Real Red ribbon around white layer, along top edge of designer paper, and adhere to card front.  Stamp sentiment inside if desired.
