PP251...Build a Blossom Birthday

Hey everyone,
 
Just popping in with a quick post inspired by this week's The Paper Players Challenge: 
 


 

My card:


 
I noticed I have a lot of stamp sets I have not used in quite a while, and are just sitting on my shelf collecting dust.  I took out an oldie but goodie stamp from Stampin' Up! called Build a Blossom.  Lately, I've been in the mood to create cards with flowers, so I thought I would take this one out and give it some love.
 
Supplies:
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Soft Sky, Bella Rose DSP (SU!); Stamps: Build a Blossom (SU!), Fancy Sentiments (IBS); Ink: Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe (SU!); Tools: Build a Blossom Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch

FMS192, CASology & The Challenge...Nautical Thank You Card

Hey everyone,
 
Today, I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches, the cue word from CASology - Nautical, and the theme challenge at The Challenge - Nautical:
 

                             
 
 
 
 
                                
 
 
 
 
My card:
 
 
Since I had SU! By the Tide Stamp Set on my craft table, I decided to create a Nautical thank you card.  Using the skewer for the rod and some twine for the line is not my original design.  I actually saw this great idea on Pinterest a year ago, but unfortunately, I was unable to find the card.
 
Supplies:
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Real Red (SU!); Stamps: By the Tide (SU!), Thanks a Bunch (Hero Arts); Ink: Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand, Early Espresso; Tools: Classic Circle (Spellbinders), Other: Skewer, Hemp Twine, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Sticky Strip

 Hey everyone,
 
Here is a quick card I put together during my lunch hour for this week's The Challenge and Hand Stamped Sentiments
 
 
 
 
I was curious about the inspiration photo over at The Challenge, since I've always wanted to give the chalkboard technique a try, so I knew I wanted to incorporate that into my card.  The sketch over at Hand Stamped Sentiments was perfect.
 
 
 
Supplies:
Paper: Soft Sky, Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Grey (SU!); Stamps: Flower Shop (SU!), Big Wishes (IBS); Ink: Whisper White Craft, Blushing Bride, So Saffron (SU!); Tools: Classic Circle  (Spellbinders); Other: Square Lattice Embossing Folder (SU!), Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge (for the leaves), Soft Sky Seam Binding Ribbon, small pearls for the flowers.
