Who is ready for flowers and Spring? I know I sure am, the older I get, the less I like winter. So, I choose to stamp with the Designer Series Paper. You can earn free, as one of your choices during Sale-a-bration (SAB) 2021 now till end of February. I love this beautiful paper and knew the second I saw it, that it was going on my have to have list! The flowers are so fun and Night of Navy, Blushing Bride, Roco Rose, Misty Moonlight, oh how I love those color combos! These cards are full of color and remind of the flowers that will be coming! Till then stay warm, and stamp the winter blues away. If you love this paper as much as I do be sure you order before the end of February as it will soon be gone! You can earn it FREE with a $50 order yet this month! One of the many great choices and note the greeting on this card, this too, is from a SAB stamp set-Approaching Perfection and I love this one too. This set can also be one of your free choices and perfect for birthday cards! Fun sayings in this set!

I used the Tasteful label die cuts to cut the Basic White label using the Cut and Embloss Machine (the big guy) and stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. Misty Moonlight card stock for standard card base next, layer with with a 4″x 5 1/4″ Basic White and then a 5″ x 3 3/4″ floral piece of DSP from Paper Blooms 12×12 paper all cut and scored with the paper trimmer and creased with our bone folder. Wrap the Misty Moonlight ribbon around the layered DSP adhered to the Basic White piece and then stick to the back on each side, cut ribbon with paper snips. Tie a bow from the ribbon and adhere that with a mini glue dot. Place Stampin Dimensionals on the back of label peel off backs and stick label to the card base. Punch out 3 blooms with the Small Bloom Punch and place a Dimensional on the back of each flower. Then curl the edges of the petals up with your finger tips to round a bit and place on side of label. Add Rhinestones to the flowers and around the card with your Take Your Pick Tool. Place the 2 layered pieces on top of the card base and adhere down with the Stampin Seal plus. Cut a piece of Basic White for the inside of the card cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and stick down to inside of card using the Stampin Seal plus paper cut with the Paper Trimmer. Stamp a verse inside I love the Happy Thoughts set and use it all the time! Always fun to cut a strip of DSP for the inside of the card and don’t forget your envelope flap!

Here is a fun card I got from a fellow demonstrator in a card swap. This too, is a great card using the Approaching Perfection stamp set and the Paper Blooms DSP. I love this card and I love to make and swap cards! We swap cards monthly in my demonstrator group, only if you wish too. It is so much fun to make cards all the same and then swap them amongst the members and you get however many cards you made back from everyone that swapped in the group. I am in groups of 16 to 21 swaps cards a month and some are smaller. Sometimes we have a theme and sometimes it may be anything you want. One request is current SU products. It is so fun to see everyone’s creativity! If you love to make cards another great reason to join Stampin Up and the Paper Wishes team. We love to swap! It is your choice to swap not required at all.

This card was for a sketch challenge in my demonstrator group. What is a sketch challenge you may ask? You have a black, white, grey layout in shapes and it is your choice to create something with that layout. That too is so fun to see all the different creative adaptions and choices in products. These are some of the fun perks about being in our demonstrator group. We feature fun. You can participate in all of them, none of them or whatever you choose the choice is completely yours but the more you joint the fun the more you will love to be a demonstrator as much as I do.

This card too features the Paper Blooms DSP and the Opal Rounds in the flower blooms. Aren’t they so pretty! I love the delicate sparkle in these opal rounds. Look at the Denim Ribbon too. It is so pretty and ties like a dream! If you like any of the products from these fun cards, I have enclosed the items used below.
