Pretty Versatile in Pink

As its name would suggest, Very Versatile, one of the sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog is…well, versatile! Returning to my scrapbooking roots, I relied upon matting to focus attention on the delicate floral stem from this set.
  • The stem was inked onto Whisper White using Stampin‘ Write Markers in Regal Rose and Always Artichoke. Pretty in Pink and Always Artichoke complete the matting, while a ribbon bow was used to accent the stem.
  • Using a selection from the beautiful Raspberry Tart Designer Paper set, an edge was punched using the Eyelet Border punch. This was then attached to the matting.
  • Using the fantastic Scallop Oval Punch, also featured in the Occasions Mini, scallops were punched from Always Artichoke and Whisper White. Once again the stem image was inked and stamped on the Whisper White oval, while Pretty in Pink Stampin‘ Pastels were applied with a sponge dauber to soften the edge.
  • The Happy Birthday sentiment from Very Versatile was inked in Basic Grey and stamped onto Pink Pirouette. StampinDimensionals were used to adhere the two scallops.

Spring has Sprung!

A friend of mine recently returned from our nation’s capitol. During the course of our conversation, talked turned to the beautiful cherry trees, which were in bloom. And thus we have the inspiration for “Spring”, the first card in a series featuring the stamp set, “Branch Out“. What will be the other members of the series, you ask? Why…Summer, Fall and Winter…of course!

Would you like your own “recipe” for Spring? Just follow these easy steps!

  • Start with Very Vanilla card stock as the card base
  • Stamp the tree image from Branch Out with Basic Brown
  • Randomly stamp the abstract leaves with Pretty in Pink and Kiwi Kiss
