Friend (Fragrant Flowers) – Team Swap

by Kylie

Hi everyone, usually when a new catalogue is released, or about to be released, our team comes together to create cards to swap. It’s so much fun! It’s a great way to share ideas, maybe learn some new techniques, and of course, actually use our new products! This month we are creating swap cards featuring items from the January to April 2023 Mini Catalogue and/or Sale-A-Bration catalogue. For my card, I’m using the new Fragrant Flowers bundle. I do love a stamp set you can colour!

I started by stamping the large flower image from the Fragrant Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink before colouring it in with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends for the leaves and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends for the flowers. I totally love this colour and I’m going to be so sad when it retires at the end of April.

After colouring the images, I die-cut them using the coordinating Fragrant Flowers dies. While the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine was on my desk I also cut two panels from Very Vanilla cardstock using the Scalloped Contours dies (one for the front of the card and one for the inside). I also die-cut two of the smaller leaves and one large leaf per card from Granny Apple Green cardstock.

Next, I took a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Metal Plate 3D Embossing Folder. I just loved the contrast of the flowers against this checker plate background.

On the Very Vanilla panel, I stamped, in Crumb Cake ink, the decorative element stamp a few times so that it would peek out from behind the flower. I also stamped the sentiment in Crumb Cake before die-cutting it.

Next up, I assembled it all on a Crumb Cake card base. I added Wink of Stella to the flowers and then finished off the card with a bow made from Crumb Cake Baker’s Twine.

Here’s the card…

This was a fun card to create. I really hope you like my card, and I hope the team does too. I’ll be sure to share the cards I receive in return.

All of the supplies used to make my card can be found in my online store. Don’t forget every purchase of $90 or more until the end of February 2023 qualifies for Sale-A-Bration freebies!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!

Happy Stamping, Kylie
