Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Some people think vanilla is boring but today I am going to share with you Very Classy Very Vanilla. I have made a very elegant monochromatic card combining the Festive Florets dies and the Merriest Moments Hybrid Embossing folder. Add in some gold embossing and the result is rather stunning if I do say so myself!
Very Classy Very Vanilla
Did you know that the oval dies in the Festive Florets collection layer together beautifully? The insides of the detailed ovals cut out for plain ovals on which to stamp your greeting and the detailed ovals can be layered as well with a stunning effect. I was inspired by Gail Ellis to layer these oval over the Merriest Moments Hybrid embossing folder. It’s a little counter intuitive since that folder has a rectangular opening in the middle but it works perfectly as you will see for yourself.
Tone on Tone Poinsettias
For this Very Classy Very Vanilla card I kept the poinsettias monochromatic as well. I stamped the poinsettias in Versamark on very vanilla cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. A few pearls were added to the centre of the flower for a lovely effect.
Prime Time With the Pampered Stamper
When COVID started I began Prime Time as a way to keep my business afloat. Members pay ten dollars a month in three month increments and in exchange they get a weekly exclusive video tutorial and a monthly 16 project pdf tutorial. The videos are posted each Thursday and the supply list and measurements are posted on Wednesdays. Members tell me that this is like a weekly class and because they pay a small monthly fee, they take it seriously and it keeps them stamping and using their supplies. It makes me so happy to hear that! You are also most welcome to join! You can do it here. This was the card that we made this week.
Thanks for joining me today, it’s always nice to see how many people come and read my blog posts each day. Did you know that I also have a YouTube channel? Every Tuesday and Wednesday I post videos there at 10am EST. Teaching the joy of card making is what I love to do and I hope you join me and subscribe! Just click on the red subscribe button on the bottom right hand corner of the video.
Hello stampers. I am SO excited to share with yo the Festive Florets Collection. The collection includes two stamp sets, a set of dies, beautiful 12 x 12 paper and gold gems. What I like so much about it is that with this collection you can make cards for the whole year! as such it is a worthy investment that you will not tire of easily. Shall we take a look?
Festive Florets Card Assortment
Today I made three different cards using this collection. I will also share the video tutorial so you can be inspired to create as well. Two of the cards are Christmas cards and the third one is an all occasion thinking of you card. Together they use all the frames dies included in the set. There is so much more to explore with this collection.
I also made some Christmas cards last week with these stamps and dies. These cards will also be part of my Save Your Sanity Stamp Camp
on December 7, 2022.
More Inspiration from Other Demonstrators with Festive Florets
The following card is by Amy Koenders and you can check out her full blog post here.
This beauty is from Gail Ellis. Gail combined the Merriest Frames Hybrid bundle. You can check out more of her fabulous work here although this card is not featured on her blog just yet.
The last card I am sharing with you caught my eye because of the way she used a pop of red behind her frames. It’s such a simple thing but it makes a huge difference! I also like the addition of the die cut leaves. You can read about all the details on her blog post here.
I am offering a contest this week for two reasons. One is simply because it is a fun thing to do. The second reason is that I want to see if contests actually work as an incentive to buy. This is how it will work and unfortunately it is only open to Canadians. If you order the Festive Florets Collection AND if at least five people do so, then one lucky winner will get Many Marvelous Markers. That is a very significant prize so I hope that I get a bunch of orders. Everyone will get THREE free pdf tutorials if they order the Festive Florets Collection. That makes everyone a winner don’t you think? Contest closes on Friday November 4 at noon EST. Please use the current host code SBEEKQT when you place your order.
