I used the Timeless Tulips and punch with the Perennial Essence DSP and the Ornate Layers dies. I started with an embossed piece of card stock and DSP that were cut to size for the first layer of my card. Once I had die cut the centre piece, I could use the positive and negative of both pieces to make 2 cards To get the shading on the tulips, I inked the stamp with Petal Pink, and then with a very light hand and Gorgeous Grape on a sponge dauber, lightly dabbed the edges of the stamp
I didn’t put a sentiment on the cards, because I couldn’t decide which one I wanted, and sometimes a card doesn’t need a sentiment!
Thank you so much for coming by today!

When I saw the Thoughtful Blooms and Small Blooms punch in this year’s Sale-A-Bration catalogue, I immediately thought of the Petite Petals stamp set and punch and I knew that this is a set that needed to be used in a makeover.
I looked through my old catalogues, but nothing was appealing to me. After a google search, I found a card that I loved. The original is an easel card that was made by Margaret Knight. You can see her original blog post here. I decided not to do an easel card, but I did use her design. I inadvertently used multiple products in my makeover. Margaret had used A Nice Cuppa stamp set and Cups and Kettle dies on her card. I used Tea Together stamp set and Tea Time framelets on my card
I also embossed the back mat with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. I used the sentiment from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set, but I can see this working really well as a Mother’s Day or get well card. You can find the complete list of products used in this project in my online store, or listed individually below
I decided that I was going to go through my old Stampin’ Up! catalogues and find cards that were made with retired stamp sets and give them a makeover to use them with current sets.
This is a photo that I found in the 2013 annual catalogue that was made using the Dress Up stamp, and this is my re-make. I also decided to play along with a colour challenge which was using Pretty Peacock, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Grapefruit Grove.
Do you like my new and updated version of this card? I paper pieced the shoes using scraps of the Birthday Bonanza DSP
Welcome to our monthly Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop, in which demonstrators from around the world share their latest projects. This month’s theme is ‘Mother’s Day or Girl cards’. If you have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog, did you enjoy her project?
My card uses the beautiful Petal Promenade stamp set and matching dies. I stamped the outline of the flower in Gorgeous Grape, and the inside in Highland Heather. The leaves are in Old Olive. The ones on the oval were stamped onto vellum and then cut out with the dies. Be sure to give lots of time for the ink to dry on the vellum, otherwise the ink will smudge.
The ‘happy’ is cut out using the Well Written Framelits dies and the ovals with the Stitched Shapes and Layering Ovals dies.
