I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Hi There along with some of the Painted Blooms DSP to create my cards to share today. The full sheet of flowers makes a beautiful background for your cards!
My card designs were inspired by Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 261.
I started by taking a deep breath and chopping into that beautiful full sheet of flowers from the Painted Blooms DSP pack. It’s one of those papers that is almost too pretty to cut up…but it’s also too pretty not to share. 🙂
For this card, I adhered the Painted Blooms panel to a panel of Rose Red card stock with SNAIL, then to a Blackberry Bliss card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Hi There stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel of White Vellum and I dried it with the low setting on my Heat Tool. I adhered the vellum panel to the card front with a rolled up Glue Dot under the “h” and a Glue Dot under the Vintage Faceted Designer Button.
For this card, I adhered the Painted Blooms DSP panel to a panel of Blackberry Bliss card stock with SNAIL, then to a Rose Red card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a circle that I’d cut with a Starburst Framelits Die and a Circles Collection Framelits Die with a touch of Multipurpose Liquid Glue, then adhered a strip of Blackberry Bliss card stock over it with SNAIL. I stamped the sentiment from the Hi There stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a White Vellum strip and heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I adhered the vellum to the Blackberry Bliss panel with Glue Dots.
I adhered a Vintage Faceted Designer Button with a Glue Dot to the card on the left, then tied a bow from the In Color Accessory Pack (Sale-A-Bration) twine and adhered it with a rolled up Glue Dot to the button. For the card on the right, I cut about a 2-1/2″ length of the Rose Red Lace from the Artisan Embellishment Kit and adhered it to itself and to the card front with Glue Dots, then added the White Resin Flower from the Artisan Embellishment Kit with a Glue Dot over the top.
I added strips of the leftover Painted Blooms DSP page (it’s to pretty to waste any of it!!) over coordinating card stock strips to complete the inside of the card.

SO Very Pretty, Amy, both of them! I can understand why you didn’t want to cut into that lovely paper! I’ve been there too. I also hoard certain dp’s because they’re just too nice to use! Now isn’t that sad….I’m sure your cards came together in a snap, and it’s all because you chose to let this gorgeous dp shine~
Thanks Roberta…I love the full sheet of this pattern so it was a little difficult to cut up. But it’s so pretty that I really wanted to make cars with it! 🙂
Your cards today are really gorgeous Amy! They caught my breath with their simple beauty! It’s really hard to pick a favorite, I do LOVE how you spotlighted the dsp with the two circle/burst elements. The banners with the simple script “hello” are a perfect touch. Amy you really outdid yourself today, they are way Wow!! 😉
Thanks so much for your nice comments Jill! Glad that you liked my cards. 🙂
You finish things so beautifully Amy!! Fabulous cards, you are so creative. Thanks, Hugs from Shelagh.
Thanks Shelagh! 🙂
Again you have gone over the top with your beautiful cards! So, so beautiful!!
Thanks so much Jari! 🙂
