Framed For You, Blossoms in Bloom, Thinking of You Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I was looking for some Designer Series Paper (DSP) that was bright and cheery looking.  I found some in the "Flowers for Every Season" 6" x 6" pack.  I just love those colors.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and taped it to the card base.

I cut a 2" x 5-1/4" piece of the DSP and taped it to the top of the card.

I die cut the circle by using the second largest "Stitched Circle" die and a regular circle die that was a bit smaller. It fit inside the stitched circle and I die cut them at the same time.  I set this on top of the card so I could see where to place the words.

The words are from the "Framed for You" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. Now these words got a bit thick looking because I had squished the red rubber stamp down too far in my Stamparatus.  I had been working with the clear stamps and they stamp differently than the rubber with foam ones.  Just use gentle pressure, you can always redo it when using the Stamparatus.

I die cut the two loose flowers from the "Many Layered Blossoms" dies.  For the thicker die I used Petal Pink card stock and for the other flower I used Daffodil Delight.  When I used the thinner dies I used Magenta Madness and Bumblebee card stock.  I had added double sided sticky sheet to those two colors before I die cut them.

Then I stamped the two complementary flowers from the "Blossoms in Bloom" set. I used Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight inks to stamp them.  I fussy cut those two flowers out and I cut them just a little bit inside the inked area. You don't have to be real careful cutting because the die cut piece will cover most of it.  I assembled the flowers.  I took a black marker and colored inside the center of each flower.

The leaves were cut using Just Jade card stock and the leaves from the "Many Layered Blossoms" dies. There's two nice sets of leaves in that big die. Pick the one you like and die cut that part only.  I did have to snip a couple of spots and it was ready to go.

I set the die cut circle in place using tiny Dimensionals.

I taped the leaf on and then the flowers were taped in place and the card was done.

Don't you think it's a very bright and cheery card?

Thank you ever SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
