Thank Goodness!

The Stitched Flower Dies are AMAZING fun and thank goodness! Along with the Subway Tile Embossing Folder and the stamp set from the Sweet Girl Grateful For You Cardmaking Workshop. This card was created for a create and take at the Lakeshore Volunteer Fire Department Crop. The ladies who made it, just loved the card. These dies will fly off the shelf.

Cut out a white panel that is 5 1/4″ by 4″ and run it through the Cuttlebug in the Subway Tile Embossing Folder. Then distress the edges with ink color that matches the flowers cut out. Mount on the card with 3D foam tape. Stamp and mat the sentiment, adhering into the bottom right.

To get dimension with the flowers, I added small cuts between the petals. This allowed me to shape the petals. Shape the flowers with your fingers or a pierce/embossing tool. Distress the edges with ink that matches the flowers.

With the leaves, fold in the center carefully, to give them shape. Distress them with matching ink to the paper, like what was done with the flowers. Put the leaves down, figuring out the best placement for them. Overlap the flowers.

The size of these flowers will make them great for scrapbooking pages as well.

One Sheet Wonder with Love Blossoms

I watched Mary from Cardz TV doing this One Sheet Wonder with a 6″x6″ piece of paper. Super excited to find these 6×6″ One Sheet Wonders because CTMH has these samples swatches and they are 6×6″ sheets! What a great repurposing for these. When putting the cards together, I decided to add the stamping of the flowers on the card base and tags. There was too much white space for me.

The tags come from CTMH :

Here’s a FB Live I did showing you how to make 5 cards with a 6×6″ scrap:

Here’s my diagram I drew out since I’m not skilled at making cutting diagrams.

Here’s 2nd set completed!

Love Blossoms Collection

This collection is amazing and I can’t wait for mine to arrive. Watercolor is one of my favorite ways to color and express myself . This stamp set is designed to make it look like you water-colored these beautiful flowers.

The sentiments are wonderful for either cards or scrapbooking. Here are the one set of the card samples the workshop is designed to create. Note that they embossed both sides of the card with the dots on the folder. You are able to use this folder multiple ways to get different impressions.

Here is the full workshop, including the Swiss Dot embossing folder. The bundle is 20% off – $55.95 USD vs $70+USD!! It’s a great deal. I love these tiny little ink pads included so you don’t have to have stamp pads!

Here is the kit without the folder where you can still save 20% – $47.95 USD vs $60.72!

Look at how beautiful these flowers look! It truly looks as if they are water-colored and all you had do was stamp.

In case you really fall in love with the cards, you can buy more of the basic kit, without the stamps, ink pads, and the folder, so you can make more.

Here’s the last design. Look at how beautiful the cards are with the Swiss Dots folder and just stamping the flowers. So simple yet so elegant!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet to check out this amazing Love Blossom Collection.
