Field of Flowers in Magenta Madness

Yes, I am back today using Magenta Madness.  This new In Color is such a happy color, it  lifts my spirits, and definitely brings a smile to my face.  Today I am using it with the Field of Flowers stamp set.  I really like the simple and clean images and sentiments in this stamp set.


Here are the basics:

  • The card base is Magenta Madness cardstock 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2", 1/2" x 4" strip for the inside of the card
  • Vellum Cardstock 4-1/4" x 5-1/2", cut using the Many Medallions die
  • Whisper White cardstock 2-3/4" x 4", cut using the Stitched So Sweetly die, 1/2" x 4" strip for the inside of the card, 4" x 5-1/4" inside of the card
  • Whisper White cardstock 1" x  3" cut using the Stitched Rectangle die.  Use the edge of the rectangle die to custom cut the rectangle

Blossoms in Bloom Shades of Blue

Played around with Misty Moonlight (2020-22 In Color), Seaside Spray (2019-21 In Color). and Night of Navy color combination.  I cut one of each color using both the detailed and bold dies in the Many Layered Blossoms ,part of the Blossoms in Bloom bundle.  I also cut one of each color in 4" x 5-1/4" and a card base, 4-1/4" x 11".  It was fun playing around with the different combinations  mixing and matching.  


This was a fun way to play with Misty Moonlight and the Blossoms in Bloom bundle.  


The card base is Seaside Spray, the layer is Night of Navy (embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D folder), the bold die is Seaside Spray and the detailed die is Misty Moonlight.  The sentiment was embossed in white embossing powder on a strip of Misty Moonlight cardstock.


The card base is Misty Moonlight cardstock, the layer is Seaside Spray cardstock, the bold die is Misty Moonlight, and the detailed die is Night of Navy cardstock.  The sentiment was heat embossed white embossing powder on Night of Navy cardstock.


The card base is Night of Navy, the layer is Misty Moonlight, the bold die is Night of Navy and the detailed die is Seaside Spray cardstock.  The sentiment was embossed in white embossing powder on Night of Navy cardstock.

There are 7 sentiments in the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set covering a wide range of occasions.   I love this bundle and how versatile it is and look forward  experimenting with different color combination and coloring techniques.

Blossoms in Bloom

This is my first card using the Blossoms in Bloom bundle (Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and the Many Layered Blossoms).  I wasn't going to get this bundle but I am so glad I changed my mind.  After just one play with it, I am hooked!


I cut the outline layer in Basic Black cardstock and the bolder layer in Magenta Madness  part of the In Color 6" x 6" DSP.  Isn't it pretty?  Adhering the two layers was a little tedious which is why I am looking forward to getting the Adhesive Sheets. The Adhesive Sheets will make it so much easier to attach the outline layer.


The Whisper White layer was embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3-D folder.  Another must have texture!  It has a little more texture than the Subtle 3-D and looks like fabric.  The sentiment was embossed using White embossing powder and decorated with an In Color Enamel Dot.  Inside of the card is another flower from the Many Layered Blossoms die.

Jar of Daisies

It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge!  This week it is a color challenge.


Before I work on a color  challenge I pull out strips of the card stock in the challenge and clip them together.  They sit on my desk until I am ready to work on the challenge. Usually, by the time I work on the card I have an idea of what to make.  The only thing that came to mind for me was to make a striped background using the colors.


I stamped the jar from the Jar of Flowers bundle in Night of Navy and the water in Coastal Cabana ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out using the Jar punch.  The daisies were punched in Whisper White cardstock using the Medium Daisy punch.   The greenery was cut in Coastal Cabana cardstock using the Forever Flourishing Dies and sponged around the edges using Night of Navy ink.

There was a bit of an empty space so I added my favorite little butterflies from the Butterfly Beauty dies in Night of Navy cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Many Mates stamp set inked in Night of Navy.  The Many Mates set is going to be so useful since it has sentiments for the front and inside of the card.  Just peeking out from the inside of the card is a border cut using the Many Medallion dies which can be bundled with the Many Mates set.  

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you liked this week's Create with Connie & Mary Challenge project.  If you are in need of a catalog please contact me and I can send one out to you.

Here's a project that has pieces from a lot of different bundles.


I used one of the flower arrangements from the Jar of Flowers set and placed it in a stand cut using the World Map dies.  The stand was cut out using the new Brass Foil.  The flowers were colored using Stampin' Blends and one of the things I cannot wait to purchase are the Stampin' Blends in the new In Colors!  Did you see the adorable Bumblebee Gingham ribbon?  Love! 


The card base is one of the new In Colors called Bumblebee and over it is one of my favorite dies from the Many Medallions Dies.  I am so excited that Adhesive Sheets are back.  It will make adhering this fabulous die so much easier.  I am also intrigued to use the Foam Adhesive Sheets with this die.  I am pretty excited about all the new adhesive options. 

So, what is number 1 on your shopping list?
