Pop Up Posies

How do you like my new blog heading?  I saw a similar blog heading on another site where you have to purchase the download for your blog and decided I could re-create it with MDS.  It took me a couple days to get the recoloring and layering done but it was fun to do.

A reminder - if you would like to get the very first issue of Stampin' Up's Paper Pumpkin - the creative project that will be delivered directly to your door - you need to sign up by Sunday.  Check it out HERE.

I have been working on my projects for the Quarterly meeting in a couple of weeks.  I am participating in a card swap, 3D swap, shoebox swap as well as doing a presentation on MDS.

Today I played around with the Pop Up Posies kit offered in the Spring Mini catalog.  There is so much you can do with it and you get a lot of elements.

Here is the first card I made using the Calypso Coral and Baja Breeze flowers.  I sprayed them with water to "fluff" them up a bit.

For the second card, I used the same layout but used the cupcake liner elements to make my flower.  I used my dauber to color the ends of the flower with Poppy Parade.

The only thing I would do different on the two cards is to use my paper pricker and templates to prick holes around the die cutout.  That would add a little "pizzaz" to them I think.

Club Projects for February

My club meets today.  I always have a hard time deciding what to make - I just want to do it all!  I keep having to remind myself that they are pretty novice stampers so I need to keep it simple but also knock their socks off!  Hope this does it!

You can make a dogwood with the Blossom Petals Punch from the Occasions Mini catalog!!  I punched the petals out and then using a 3/4" circle punch, I punched the ends and used a brown marker to darken them.  The colors used on the card are Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizazz and white. The sentiment is from Oval All.

 This is another card using the Blossoms Punch.  I had several people that bought this punch so I wanted to make sure they knew how to use it!  I have found the easiest way to use this punch is cut a strip of paper about 1 1/2" and punch from it.  That way, you don't waste a lot of cardstock.

 This card and the next one are super easy!  Everyone will do a different one.  I cut my basic card (5 1/2" x 8 1/2"); DSP AND Vellum (5 1/2 x 4 1/4").  Emboss the vellum and adhere it to one side of the DSP that is adhered to the card.  The ribbon will cover up the tape.  Stamp a sentiment in an area that is not embossed.

This is a good way to use up some DSP and makes an elegant card.

This card is probably my favorite but again it is fairly simple.  I used the DSP, Springtime Vintage that is just gorgeous!!  It is on page 15 in the mini catalog.  The rose on the bottom of the flower is cut from the paper and glued down.  The stamp set I used is Baby Blossoms - a set I really wasn't going to order but I am loving it!  The colors of the card are River Rock and Not Quite Navy.  The "thinking of you" part is stamped three times - once in Not Quite Navy on NQN cardstock; once in Rose Red; and once in NQN on white and punched out with the large oval punch.  The seam binding ribbon in Baja Blue tops it off.
