Hydrangea Housewarming

Today I’m sharing a house warming card. The Hydrangea Hill DSP set the tone of the card and helped with choosing the colours and styling for this pretty creation.

I set the DSP out in a patchwork style layout – two large squares and eight small squares. On the large squares, I added circle embellishments using stamps front the Circle Celebration stamp set and a house die cut from the now retired Home Together Dies.

The sentiment for this card is from the A Grand Kid stamp set. I don’t have grand kids, but this set is perfect for so much more than that!

The butterflies are from the Fluttering Dies – cut on the DSP over a hydrangea. The colours in the card are Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose, Highland Heather and Basic White.

This card was fun to make and it a layout you could use with any DSP. The most wonderful thing about Stampin’ Up! DSP is that they’ve already coordinated the colours and patterns for you, so it all just works!

If you need to order DSP or any Stampin’ Up! products, you can shop in the online store 24-7. New or regular customers can select me as their demonstrator using the demonstrator locator (“Kelly Kent” + Dalyellup, WA). Happy shopping and stamping!

Floating & Fluttering

Hi there! How’s your weekend going? You won’t believe it, but this is my second live post this week! I’m in the very lucky position of hanging out at a craft retreat all weekend, so I’m taking the chance to show you a project I made this month.

These cards feature the Floating & Fluttering bundle – one of the new butterfly sets available in the Jan-June mini catalogue.

I’ve made it in two colour combinations. The first is a version style on the Monarch butterfly. We released these gorgeous butterflies at my wedding (12 years ago!) so they hold a special place in my heart.

To make this card I stamped the butterflies on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I then stamped the butterflies again on another piece, coloured them with Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends and then die cut using the coordinating Fluttering Dies.

The die set has the option to cut the butterflies into individual butterflies – as I have in the Pumpkin Pie card. Or, to cut as a whole segment – as I have in the version below.

This version using a gorgeous array of pastels – Mint Macaron & Just Jade as the base colours and then Rococo Rose, Highland Heather and Seaside Spray for the butterflies.

The Floating & Fluttering stamp set is images only – no greetings, which means you can mix & match it with your favourite sentiments from others sets. I’ve used the Punch Party stamp set – one of the stamp sets available during Sale-A-Bration (which ends next weekend!). This one is completely free with every order fo $500.

I hope your weekend is as stamping happy as mine! I’m signing off now to go and make some more cards!
