Dainty Delight Flowers

For this pretty floral card, I decided to use three soft, new colors; Lost Lagoon, Fresh Freesia and Lemon Lolly. And a strip of DSP from the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Pack.

The first thing I did was to cut Lemon Lolly and Basic White paper with one of the Deckled Rectangle dies. I usually use those dies for a more outdoorsy, rustic look. But they add a nice look to any style card.

The bunch of flowers from the Dainty Delight Stamp set are stamped with Memento Black ink, then colored with Lemon Lolly, Fresh Freesia and Lost Lagoon markers and Stampin' Blends.

It was pretty by itself, but when I added the die cut Fresh Freesia flowers, it really popped!

Notice how I put the rectangles at an angle? That was not easy for me!!!

Glorious Gingham Flip Card

If you know me, you know I am a country girl. Give me denim, gingham, a little lace and a few hearts and I am happy. This card has it all, plus a little more!

I like making cards that have a little surprise. This one doesn't disappoint.

Just look at that pretty Blueberry Bushel gingham DSP. This Glorious Gingham Designer Series paper is on sale from June 1-30. Love it!

The hearts on the front panel and the verses along the Crumb Cake strip.....

and on the inside are from Country Bouquet stamp set and punch.

And of course we can't forget the pretty scallop lace strip from Darling Detail Dies.

But wait....there's more...

It opens again to reveal more hearts and Glorious Gingham DSP!

Happy girl!

Circle Sayings

I had some Countryside Inn DSP left over from a few other projects, so I put it to good use by combining it with the Circle Sayings bundle. Don't forget this DSP is on sale from June 1 to June 30.

There are a couple things a little different with this card.

Usually, I make the first panel 4" x 5 1/4". But I changed this up a little and extended the top and bottom to make it 3 3/4" x 5 1/2".

Then I cut a strip of DSP 1 1/2" x 5 1/2"  and adhered it to the Basic White panel BEFORE I ran it through the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder.

The cardbase and ink is Misty Moonlight with SMILE stamped in Balmy Blue.

This design is a good way to use up strips of DSP and small pieces of white that can be cut into any shape.

Darling Details

Stampin' Up! is having an awesome sale on selected DSP June 1-30, so I thought this would be a great time to make some cards using some of that paper.

This pretty card has a lot of interesting things happening in it.

I knew I wanted to use two new colors; Bubble Bath and Berry Burst, so the pink bubbles in the Bright & Beautiful DSP pack work perfectly as a background.

The two-step flowers in the Darling Details bundle are big and bright and stamp perfectly with Bubble Bath and Berry Burst ink. The smaller flower dies are cut in Basic White, then colored with Berry Burst and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.

And just look at that pretty, lacy frame made with the biggest dies in the set.

Such a pretty card!
