Lots of Love...

Hello friends! Cheryl here today, with a card using one of the newest stamp sets just released.
I LOVE THIS STAMP SET!!! And I hope you do too. So here's my card.

I love lilacs for one thing, and for great is this image?! So I got out my Tombow Markers and set out to coloring this pretty flower. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and embossed with black embossing powder. I stamped and embossed the vase on velum. I then sent it to my Brother Scan n Cut and it cut it out just perfectly. I even did it after it was all colored and it didn't make one mistake! I love this machine that much that I dare to do that, lol. I did two of them and then arranged them as I liked on the A2 sized card base. 

I used a piece of paper from Lawn Fawn's Watercolor Wishes paper pad, one of my favorites!!! Great watercolor papers with no fuss, lol! I stamped and embossed the sentiment in black and scattered around a few sequins. I got out my Viva Decor pearls and dotted around a few pearls and set aside to dry. I then added the entire piece to a heavy weight cardstock base. And that was it!

So, where do you get this set? You get it here. Check it out, and so many more awesome things!

Here's what I used.

So, get your craft on and make something pretty of your own. And check out the store for some really great crafting supplies. Thanks for coming by!

Lilac Birthday Wishes - Fold Flat Vase DIY Card

Ilda here, and I'm back again today with some more inspiration for Fleurette Blooms latest release. 
This time I am featuring the Lilac Dreams Stamp set😍

This stamp set is gorgeous! 
So elegant and perfect for so many different occasions.
I decided I wanted to create something unique with this Lilac set. I wanted my card to look like an actual vase filled with Lilacs would.

Lilac Birthday Wishes - Fold Flat Vase DIY Card

I colored my images in using my Tombow Dual Brush Markers and then cut them out with my SnC2. Don't worry you don't need a SnC machine, Fleurette always has FREE Coordinating Digital Dies available for download with your stamp purchase.

Here is what the back of my card looks like.

I have included some pictures below to help you visualize my steps.
I also have links to all my supplies over on my →blog.

 To begin I cut out 2, 2 3/4 inch circles using a Circle Die. I then sliced 1/2 inch of the bottom.
Next, I cut out the box portion of the card to measure 5 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches. Then I scored the paper at the 1/2 inch or 2 inch mark (see image).

I then assembled the box by gluing the side tab down. Once it was dry I then glued it to one of the cut circles (make sure you line up the bottom and center it on the panel).

To create the faux water look. I cut out another circle in pale blue card stock  and trimmed it like the previous ones. I then fused a plastic sleeve together in the shape of the vase to create a pocket.

Next I filled up the pocket with a few sequins for some shine and slipped the lilacs in the top opening of the pocket and glued it in place (I only glued the back of the lilacs as I didn't want any glue to show in the front. Because the paper is blocking the sequins from coming up the pocket they didn't spill out). Next I glued the other lilac bunches to the back of the blue card stock.

I then added the pocket layer to the top of my blue layer, but only gluing down the areas where the bottom of my bunch was, as I didn't want any adhesive to show. (Not shown here, but I also added a piece of vellum to the bottom half of the vase. Then I added glue only in the center where it will be hidden by the sequins). Here is what it looks like from the back all glued together.

Next I stamped my sentiment on the back panel and glued it the front panel (make sure you line up the bottom and the sides of the box when gluing it together).

Here is the finished card folded flat, which fit perfectly in a 5x7 envelope.

Hope you were inspired by my Lilac Birthday Wishes - Fold Flat Vase DIY Card. I love when you can use the supplies you have to create something totally unique! Make sure you come back soon for more DT inspiration!

Hello there!  I am SO excited to be back on Fleurette Bloom's Design Team and glad to be crafting again!  It has been awhile!  Make sure to like her Facebook Page to see all the other wonderful ideas and products!

Here is my project for today.  I am using the NEW, adorable Purr-ific Kitty Cat Clear Stamp Set and combining it with the shadowbox from the I'm Wishing 3D SVG Kit.  The little banner flags I used come from the Hot Air Balloon SVG Project Kit.

I added a few sparkly Sequins to my project, stamped the sentiment on a banner strip, and used the bubble bath and added the yarn balls.  

Here is the complete stamp set, look at all that cuteness!

A simple little project for a kitty lover and to help brighten someone's day!

Happy PURRday Interactive Spin Card

Hello my friends Ilda here today on FB Stamps Blog!

Today I have a very cute and super fun card to share with you featuring the new Purr-ific Kitty Cat Stamp Set from FB Stamps.

The Kitty in the center spins all around the card so I thought it would be fun to add the googly eyes to make it look dizzy when you spin it.  Make sure you follow me on Instagram (I'll be posting this card in action for you all to see there 👀)

Happy PURRday Interactive Spin Card

I didn't have time to shoot and edit a video this time (sorry guys, I know its been a while since my last YT video). If you are wondering about all the products I used today check out the links over on my → Blog. Hopefully these pictures will help explain my process.

I first cut out then colored my kitty using my Zig Markers. Next I glued it on to a piece of paper that I had cut out in the shape of a drop. You will notice I punched a hole in the center of the drop. On the left side of the picture, I have my die cut top panel which randomly I stamped with the ball of yarn using  Peacock Feathers distress ink.

To create my ball of yarn, I wrapped twine around a die cut circle. I then inserted a brad in the center of the back of the ball. 

Next I punched a hole where I wanted the Kitty to sit on the front panel of the card. Then I hot glued the Kitty to the back of the ball.

To finish off the card I slipped the brad through center hole on the panel and bent up the arms (make sure you don't squeeze the arms flat against the card stock or it may not spin easily). Then I added some foam tape to the back of the panel to pop it up and allow for the Kitty to spin.

Here is how I finished the inside.
Love that little fish skull ♡

Rosie Posies

Hello, Crafty Friends!!
 I have another project for you all today! This time I have this lovely rosie posie card using...

Fleurette Blooms' Posies stamp set.

Image result for fleurette bloom designs posies

I stamped my image onto mixed media paper with black archival ink and colored with distress markers then blended out with a water brush.

Once completely dried, I cut each flower out by hand.

I die cut leaves from old music sheets. Then shaded them with Distress Inks and added details with Distress Markers.

I die cut a honeycomb out of chipboard using honeycomb die. I mixed white gesso, microbeads, and texture powder together and applied over the entire honeycomb. 

I allowed the mixture to completely dry then colored with distress stain then dry brushed acrylic paint.

Using my Xyron Creative Station Lite, I attached a 4.25"x 5.5" piece of burlap onto a standard A2 sized card made from cream colored cardstock. Then layered a 4"x 5.25" mat on top.

I used a bit of glossy accents as a glue and attached to my card front. The laid down my leaves before attaching my posies over top with more glossy accents.

To fish my card, I die cut the word hello from brown cardstock and attached at the bottom of the card.

And here is my finished card..

Such a simple yet beautiful card.

I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial for today!

Until next time...
Happy Crafting!!

Hey there, crafters! Cheryl here.
I have always this turtle image and haven't ever played with it. So glad I did!
I started by stamping a full background of turtles onto watercolor cardstock. I then pulled out my Zig Clean Color markers and set about coloring the images. I then took blue and created some water background. I also stamped some of the bubbles and added Glossy Accents over the tops to make it look like real water.

I stamped one other turtle and fussy cut it out. I attached it to the card front directly over top of another one, using an Action Wobbler. So fun to see it shake about! And how much cuter it is with those google eyes! 

I stamped out a sentiment onto black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I popped it up with foam tape. Grabbed some sequins from my stash and glued them on using Ranger Multi Matte adhesive. I also added a few Nuvo enamel dots. 

This card was fun to color and to put together. Love this turtle! Hope you got a bit of inspiration. Get out your toys and play!

Happy Crafting!

Our Newest Sequin Mixes

Here is what I've created with Our NEW Releases...

Fleurette here  :)  thank you so much for joining us on our Bloomin Spring hop!
I'm thinking spring as you can tell by our new stamps :)

The first card I created to share with you is very soft and pretty.
I used our new "Rain Or Shine" stamp set along with our new Digi Paper Pack "Pansies".

Card Tutorial

I printed the Pansies Digi Papers on a laser printer, inked them and then ran the pink center piece through my foiling machine, to give it the gold glimmer. 
I cut the card pieces using this FREE for a limited time SVG that I created and cut it on my 
Cricut Explore.  

#clearstamps #cricutexplore #stamping #cardmaking
I stamped the images on watercolor paper and colored the adorable vintage inspired paper doll, hat and bunny with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I used colored pencils for some of the smaller details and shadows, then fussy cut them out.  To give it that finishing touch, I added glitter with my Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.   I always LOVE to add SPARKLE!!!  I then embossed the "Smile" sentiment on vellum and added just a few gold sequins from our  "Purple Rain" sequin mix. 

Here is a close up so you can see all that glitter :) 

For my second card, I created this elegant golden shimmery card using our new "Pansies" stamp set.

I embossed the sentiment in gold, and stamped the Pansies on black card stock using white embossing powder. I colored the flowers in first with a white colored (wax based) pencil, then added the purple colors on top of that. I used a layer of velum over a pretty gold patterned paper to give it that elegant touch.  Then I fussy cut all the flowers out and attached them with some dimensional foam tape.  For the finishing touch I added some "Purple Rain" sequins and of course added glitter to the flowers with my glitter pen.

Now hop on over to the next blog for more crafty fun! :)

We hope you are inspired by what you see and enjoy your time with us!

Thinking of You... Card with Clear Stamps

Thinking of you...

Hey all! Welcome I'm here today showcasing a stamp set from Fleurette's latest release. Love this floral image! So nice for coloring in any medium of your choice.

 I used my Zig markers to color this image. I have good days and bad days with those, lol, and this happened to turn out pretty decent. I fussy cut the image out and used foam dimensionals to lift it off the card front. I used a die I have to cut the frame in the front and added acetate to make a shaker card. I cut another piece out of gold shiny cardstock. Filled it with seed beads and added the back piece of cardstock. 
I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Black Onyx ink and snipped a banner end. Added it to the front of the shaker. This whole piece was then added to the card front and some sequins scattered around to finish it off.
Here's where to get your stamping supplies.

Thinking Of You Posies Bouquet by Ilda

Hello Everyone!

Who doesn't like to receive flowers? How about a gorgeous posies Bouquet? Flowers don't always have to be the real ones you know 😉 I know I would love to receive some 💗🎕

Today my card features FB Stamps Posies Stamp set that SOLD out really fast when they were just released. Well the good new is that they are now back in stock again! YAY!

Take a closer look at these pretties. I just love how this card came together!

All I did was a little bit of masking on the base layer of the card and then just cut out one of the flowers and popped it up with some foam in the center of the bouquet. Colored the images in with my Zigs and stamped the sentiment along the edge of the pitcher... and voila!
So pretty 😍
