Another birthday card created using sentiments from the Happy Wishes stamp set available in Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration Catalog and is free with $100 purchase thru 3/31/18. For this one I combined the sentiment with flowers stamped from both the Flower Shop & Petite Petals stamp sets, cut with coordinating punches, and leaves cut using the May Flower Framelits dies. Flowers and sentiments were stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink. Mounted on a mat of Peekaboo Peach Designer series paper. A7 size card. I aligned all the stamps together on one large block and stamped in several different colors - I saved some of them for later use.
This birthday card was created using sentiments from the Happy Wishes stamp set available in Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration Catalog which you can get for free when combined with any order totaling $100. You can combine the large "happy" or "best" stamp design with sentiments for birthdays, anniversaries, or friendship. For this one I combined the sentiment with flowers and leaves from the Flower Patch stamp set cut with coordinating Flower Fair Thinlits dies. All were stamped with Tempting Turquoise ink. A2 size card.
This colorful alternative for the Flora & Flutter Paper Pumpkin kit from December of 2017 was pretty easy to create. The Sahara Sand mat is from the kit. The background mat was stamped in Calypso Coral ink using the large detailed flower from Stampin' Up!'s Heartfelt Blooms stamp set. The sentiment was also part of the kit. I added some small butterflies stamped using their Papillion Potpourri stamp set, some matching twine and a few coordinating enamel shapes. A7 size card. What a great kit this is. I have created 8 alternative cards so far and still have lots of card bases, and background mats leftover to use at a later date.
These 2 Flora & Flutter Paper Pumpkin alternatives are designed for the younger crowd. The "leaf" mats were from the kit. The Pandas were hand cut from the really popular Party Panda stamp set, placed on a Tranquil Tide cardstock background, and used one of several sentiments included in the kit. The Bears, Beehive and Bees from A Little Wild stamp set and coordinating Thinlits dies with the background paper included in the kit. These are both A2 size cards.
This Thank You card is another alternative using Flora & Flutter Paper Pumpkin Kit from December 2017 and inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest created by Stamptastic Designs. The background is a watercolor wash and spattered using Stampin' Up!'s Marina Mist ink. The leaves and sentiment were stamped with their Tranquil Tide ink. This sentiment is from the Positively Picturesque PP Kit. Butterflies and Flowers were stamped in Berry Burst Ink from Papillion Potpourri and Petite Flowers stamp sets and cut with coordinating punches. A7 size card.
Here's another alternative for the Flora & Flutter Paper Pumpkin kit from December 2017. The card base is Stampin' Up!'s Rich Razzleberry cardstock. The white mat was stamped with the butterfly stamp in the kit with Rich Razzleberry ink. The ones on the center panel are popped up. The leaves were stamped in Pear Pizzazz. The Celebrate sentiment was cut using their Celebrate You Thinlits die set. This card was CASEd from one I saw on Pinterest designed by Lynn Dunn of Stamptastic Designs. A7 size card.
