Global Stamping Friends November Blog Hop So Many Thanks

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends November Blog Hop as we explore this month's theme "So Many Thanks". Our wonderful Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own cards and gift ideas to say Thank You to the people you care about.
Today I have created a beautiful Thank You card with the new Fitting Florets Collection, that is available for a limited time. I have fallen in love with these wonderful coordinating products and I am having so much fun coming up with new ways to create with them. This card design has more of a fresh Spring/Summer feel to it with the pretty floral design and the color combination of Balmy Blue, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen and Basic White. The layout for this card would work well for other occasions such as a Birthday or Thinking of You.

This beautiful card combines all the wonderful elements in this collection to create a wonderful all occasion design. I love how the sentiment and coordinating frame work as the focal image for the design and the flowers and decorate the frame to step up the design. For the sentiment, I stamped the image with Balmy Blue Classic ink onto the Basic White medium oval. I adhered the Balmy Blue frame to the designer series paper card front and added the sentiment oval in the center of the frame, using Mini Dimensionals to pop it up. This made it easier to add the detailed die cut leaf stems underneath to create the layers for the floral arrangements. I cut each of the leaf stems in half to create two pieces in both Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen, and added them to the top right and bottom left sides of the sentiment oval. The flowers were stamped with Night of Navy Classic ink and colored with Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends Markers and the leaves were stamped with Evening Evergreen Classic ink and colored with the Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Markers. I attached the flowers with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to the sentiment label and tucked the leaves underneath the flowers to complete the design. To embellish the card, I added two of the Gold Adhesive Backed Swirls to the centers of the flowers and I added some Balmy Blue Double-Stitched Ribbon to create the look of a loop at the top and the tails at the bottom of the sentiment oval. I just love how this card design turned out and I can't wait to try this layout with other designs from the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper.

  1. So pretty!!! I'm not a flower fan, but I do love this collection - and it's the Balmy Blue color throughout it that really makes it appealing to me. Thanks for sharing this lovely project 😊

    1. Thank you Kimberley. I love this collection too and the wonderful patterns in the designer series paper. Blue is my favorite color so this card came together nicely.

  2. Such a beautiful card! Elegant, yet simple to recreate! I didn't get that collection, but you are making me wonder if I should!
