This card features the stamp set Aviary (p13), vintage trinkets (p9), crochet trim Victoria (p8) and Square Lattice (p17) embossing folder only available to order from the Summer Mini Catalogue until 31 March 2011.
I made this card using the stamp set Love Defined (p6) from the Summer Mini Catalogue for the tree and Perfect Punches stamp set (93) for the sentiment. I also used the Big Shot with the embossing folder Square Lattice (p17 mini) for the textured background. I made the flowers using the Boho Blossoms punch (p147) and used the Basic Pearls (p140) for the centre of the flowers.
Summer Mini catalogue ends 31 March 2011.
This is my Just Add Ink entry for this week. I didn’t think I was going to make the deadline to get this card uploaded but just made it! Take a look at the other entries for this week, click HERE and be inspired to create!
Some details on the card, the flowers and butterflies have been sprayed with shimmer mist but this doesn’t really show up on the photo but looks great in real life. I got the idea to use the part of the flower petals as leaves from the talented Teneale Willams but then went further and used part of the flourish as some greenery too.
Stamp Set/s: Bliss (sale-a-bration set) & Teeny Tiny Sentiments
My favourite Sale-a-bration stamp set is Bliss (p7 SAB). I just love the swirly flourish stamp! Here is another card where I masked off some of the flourish to make it a bit smaller:
For both cards I used the stamp set On Your Birthday (p102 IB&C) for the birthday sentiments. I got inspiration for these cards from this photo that I saw in a recent catalogue.
You only have until 31 March 2011 to order products from the Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini Catalogue.
My favourite stamp sets from the summer mini catalogue are Love Defined (p6), Easter Blossoms (p9) and Aviary (p13). My favourite accessories are Crochet Trim (p8) & Vintage Trinkets (P8). I loved all the designer papers but my current favourite is the Speciality Designer Series paper Presto Patterns (p10). I love how you can add your own ink to colour to the Presto Patterns paper but have the beautiful white glossy design come through.
I made some cards over the weekend using some of my favourite products from the mini, take a look:
The pink card with the Easter Eggs was inspired by a card I saw on Splitcoaststampers by BabaLyn. To take a look at the cards different people have made using the Easter Blossoms stamp set (p9 mini), click HERE.
