2020 FIeld of Flowers

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop...Red, White, and Blue

SDBH Banner

Welcome to another Stampers Dozen Blog Hop!  This month our theme is Red, White & any Blue!  

Usually when I think about red, white and blue, I think of using Real Red & Night of Navy.  I decided to try another combination so I chose Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy , and Seaside Spray.  I decided on this combination when I looked through a pack of DSP called Plaid Tidings.  This pack of paper is in the upcoming August-December 2020 Mini Catalog which will be available August 4th.   Lots of plaids in great color combinations.  


I used the Field of Flowers bundle for the grass and flowers.  Since this is a photopolymer set, I was able to curve the stamp on the block.  This allowed the grass to curve along the bottom of the circle.  The large flowers were stamped in Seaside Spray and fussy cut.  The smaller flowers were stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  The small flowers were stamped twice to get different shades of Cherry Cobbler and then punched using the Confetti Flowers Border punch.


The sentiment is from another stamp set in the August-December Mini Catalog called Life is Beautiful (this is a million dollar set by LeeAnn Greff).  I am a pushover for sentiments that have 2 fonts.  Love the look!  I used the Denim ribbon and am so glad it carried over from the last Annual Catalog.  It looks so good with this plaid paper and Night of Navy.  Love the little extra texture and color it adds.

Here's a list of all the stops on the Hop!

Field of Flowers

It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge!  This week we have a bright and happy color combination that spoke to me of summer.


The Field of Flowers bundle ( stamp set and Confetti Flowers Border Punch) in these colors remind me of a summer day.  


I used the Confetti Flower Border punch for the smaller flowers and fussy cut the larger flowers.  I popped up all the flowers using Stampin' Dimensionals.  In the Field of Flowers stamp set there is a dragonfly.   I chose to use the dragonfly from the Friend Like You stamp set so instead of more fussy cutting  I could use the dragonfly die in the Friendly Silhouettes to cut it out.  


The card base is Thick Whisper White cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4".  The Melon Mambo cardstock measures 3-5/8" x  4-7/8" and the stamped Whisper White panel is 3-1/2" x 4-3/4".  I wrapped Linen Thread around the bottom edge of the stamped panel and tied a bow.


You can see a border of grass and flowers along the bottom edge of the inside of the card.  I like to decorate the inside of the card as well as the outside.
