Indigo Bloom

Hi there,

It’s the 4th and final week of September’s Pootler’s Design Team with the Flirty Flowers stamp set.

I have opted to go away from the pretty pinks and greens and used blue, Island Indigo in fact.

The card base was made from Island Indigo.

The white layer was cut to 4 inches wide and then die cut with the Card Front Builder die set.

Some Island Indigo ombre ribbon was attached across the centre.

The flowers were stamped above and below the ribbon.

The sentiment was stamped in Island Indigo ink and cut with a Stitched Oval. This was layered on to some glimmer paper and Island Indigo card cut with layering ovals dies.

I finished off the card with some basic rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stampin’!

Spring Greens

Hi there,

Welcome to week three of this month’s Pootler’s Design Team. September is flying by!

The featured stamp set is Flirty Flowers.

The card base was made with Lemon Lime Twist card stock. I never thought I was gonna like this colour – but I LOVE it!

On a white card layer, I stamped the large grassy image with Garden Green ink. I also have some coming down from the top.

The sentiment was also stamped in Garden Green and cut with a Stitched Circle framelit. This layered on to an Old Olive circle, and then a Garden Green scalloped circle.

Some Natural Trim in silver was sandwiched between the layers and the added across the card.

Very simple but so beautiful.

I hope you enjoyed this project. Laurie, Jill, Tracy and Julie are also sharing projects today, please visit their pages using the links at pootles.co.uk

The supplies used are listed below.

Happy Stampin’!

Poppies

Hi there,

Welcome to week 2 of this months Pootler’s Design Team projects.

The featured stamp set is Flirty Flowers, and today I am using the lovely poppy image.

I have stuck with the traditional red poppy colour and with some careful selective inking, manage to stamp the stalks. I used Real Red and Wild Wasabi inks.

The white layer was matted on to Cherry Cobbler card stock.

Some beautiful white sheer ribbon was tied around before adding to a Crumb Cake card base.

The sentiment has been taken from Sunshine Sayings. I was thinking about Remembrance Day and the message it brings. This was cut with the smallest scalloped square from the Layering Squares framelit set, and then added with a dimensional.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by… Be sure to look at the projects created by Laurie, Jill, Julie and Tracy.

Happy Stampin’!

Red and Black

Hi there,

I have the very great pleasure of being on the Pootlers Design Team for the month of September.

Please be sure to stop by my friends’ posts too. You will find the links to these other fantastic projects at http://www.pootles.co.uk

The featured stamp set is Flirty Flowers from the annual catalogue.

I have adapted a design I used a couples of weeks ago, which I really liked.

The card base is made from black card stock. A Cherry Cobbler card layer was cut to 4 by 5 3/4 inches.

A piece of Whisper White measuring 3 7/8 by 5 5/8 inches was used for the stamping. Basic Black and Real Red inks were used to stamp the flowers, leaving 2 inches blank at the top.

Cherry Cobbler Stitched Ribbon was added across the card stock and then adhered to the Cherry Cobbler card layer. This was added to the card base.

The sentiment was stamped in Real Red ink and cut with a Stitched Shape framelit. Layering Squares were then used to cut black and red layers.

These were adhered together with Fast Fuse and added to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally, I added some bling with some Basic Rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed this project. Thanks for stopping by and happy stampin’!
