Frames & Flowers Birthday

It is Thursday which means it is time for a new Create with Stamping Friends Challenge!  This month we are CASEing the catalog.   A sample from the Stampin' Up! catalog is chosen and we use that sample and create a card.  The CASEing can be the colors, layout, type of card etc basically anything.

CSF826

I chose to CASE the layout.  This is a great layout and a perfect way to show off some of your pretty Designer Series Paper (DSP) and if you are anything like me, you have a few sheets of DSP floating around.  

Frames&Flowers_CSFBirthday

Frames&Flowers_CSFBirthday_inside

  • Basic White CS layer 4" x 5-1/4:
  • Die cut from the Frames & Flowers DSP

Frames&Flowers_CSFBirthday_side

This card came together quickly and easily.  The Frames & Flowers DSP and coordinating die cuts makes it so easy to create cards, layouts, and so much more.  

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Stamping Friends created for the challenge.

Citrus Blooms...Lemons or Oranges?

I have been playing with the Mediterranean Blooms suite.  What a beautiful suite.  Right now it is giving me sitting on the veranda vibes drinking lemonade or some other kind of citrusy drink.  

CitrusBlooms_OrangesvsLemons (1)

I posted this question on my Facebook page and when I last looked it was all in favor of lemons.  What do you think?

CitrusBlooms_oranges_pocket

Here's a closer look at each card.   The orange was colored using Stampin' Blends in Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Lolly and Old Olive.

CitrusBlooms_Orangespocket_2

The card slides out of the DSP "pocket".

CitrusBlooms_Orangepocket_3

I love this sentiment from the Citrus Blooms stamp set.  I send many cards just to check in with people in hopes that it will brighten their day.  

CitrusBlooms_lemonpocket

These lemons were fussy cut from the Mediterranean Blooms Designer Series Paper

CitrusBlooms_Lemonpocket_2

Ir can be a little tricky writing a note so you can also attach a piece of Basic White cardstock to the back of the insert.

Let me know what you think...Lemons or Oranges?
