This month we concentrated on using only ONE stamp set and ONE set of Framelits. I chose the Flower Patch Bundle. It was a great hit and the designs and creations are endless. Here is just the first of the three cards we made. Actually, this first one is two 3×3 cards of different designs.
The background was stamped flat (right onto the cardstock) and then the flowers were “popped” up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The stamped piece was then popped up onto the card. These little 3×3 cards are great to have around to put on a gift or tuck into a pocket or lunch bag.
Here’s a close up of the first card. Keep in mind that some embellishments can be added…for example…a rhinestone, pearl or Candy Dot in the middle of each flower. You might want to cut out each leaf with the framelits. Let your imagination go wild…this is just the start!
Another close up. This time the flower is done in Crushed Curry.
These are the basics…why don’t you try these and share how you “jazzed” them up. Anyone who sends a photo of their 3×3 done with the Flower Patch stamp set to me will appear as a guest on my blog. 🙂 If you don’t have this set yet…just go to the Shop Now button or call me to place your order.
Here are the Stampin’ Up! products I used: (I just noticed that I didn’t use the Bundle #…here it is: 136788 – by ordering the Bundle you can save 15%)
Here’s a special card for a special little boy. I did use some retired items but I just couldn’t help myself. The stamp set Oh, Whale and the Clearlits Happy Whale are both retired. Everything else is current.

Welcome to the July Pals Blog Hop. This month we are featuring a New Hues Review. Let the new Stampin’ Up! In Colors for 2014-16 inspire you – Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, and Tangelo Twist. We hope you find great inspiration from our creations.
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Susan Itell # 15 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.
I needed a special birthday card for my childhood friend of 61 years. I love the new Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey so those colors were a must. The new stamp set Age Awareness has this awesome greeting. I used White Craft Ink and the new Flowering Flourishes to stamp a background on the Blackberry Bliss cardstock. The white Organza Ribbon adds just the right touch. Of course the little flower from the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack punched out in Hello Honey put the final touch on this card.
July is a very busy birthday month it seems. I’ll be sharing some of the cards I’ve made for friends and family.
This is a larger card than normal because I wanted to cut out the the pool party background. The sentiment is retired but I will never let this one go – I love this font.
This is a shot where I think you can see that I used the Big Shot and largest of the Floral Frames Framelits to cut out the shape on the Pool Party cardstock. I did the stamping directly onto the card. It’s simple but makes it’s own statement.
