Fully Flowering Ephemera Pack

It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Stamping Friends Challenge!  This week it is a choose your own adventure color challenge with some sparkle.


I was in a time crunch.  It was getting late and I needed to get this card made.  I  knew I wanted to make a black & white striped background.  Black, white & a pop of color are my go-tos.   I played around with the idea of  stamping and coloring some of my beautiful new floral stamps but looking at the clock I knew that would take me longer than I had time for.  While I was perusing my options I came across a new item that will be debuting in the upcoming 2024-25 Annual Catalog and knew my problem was solved.  


  • Thick Basic White CS card base-4-1/4" x 11"
  • Basic Black CS 4" x 5-1/4"
  • Basic White CS 3-3/4" x 5"
  • Basic Black CS stripes 3/4" x 3-3/4" (4)

My colors for this challenge are Pretty in Pink, Garden Green and Petal Pink.  I am considering the black and white as neutrals and am not counting them. The beautiful flower is from a new product, the Fully Flowering Ephemera Pack.  This new product features 2 each of 4 designs (total of 8 sheets) of pre-cut images.  This one as the name indicates features florals and leaves.  I simply removed the flower from the sheet and attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Isn't it pretty?  The Ephemera Packs are going to be an easy and quick way to add beautiful images to your cards, packaging and scrapbooking layouts.  

I added some Silver & White 1/2" Sheer Ribbon to the flower, doesn't it look like a corsage?  The silver on this ribbon adds that extra little shine and sparkle.  The Pretty in Pink gems are from the 2024-26 In Color Shimmer Gems.  These gems also add a bit of sparkle too.  


The sentiment is from a new stamp set called Unbounded Love.  This set has 25 sentiments and is going to be my go-to set for words.  "Celebrate" was heat embossed with White embossing powder so it would be visible against the Basic Black CS.

This card was quick and easy to make and pretty to0, thanks to the Fully Flowering Ephemera Pack.  Think about adding an Ephemera Pack to your order in May.    Now it is time to check out what the rest of the Create with Stamping Friends made with this week's challenge.

Such a beautiful card! I love the bold black & white softened with the flower! Stripes and floral are a favorite of mine, too. This is so elegant and simple. Thank you for showing how useful the Ephemera lacks will be!
