Forever & Always - Love

 I've been having fun this week playing the Forever & Always bundle and the True Love Designer Series Paper.  This is the card I made on Facebook Live tonight. The flowers were cut out of the Designer Series Paper. I colored them with the new Blending Brushes which I love!  The Love words are die cut out of the Love You Always Foil in Blushing Bride. The foil comes in Rococo Rose, Blushing Bride & Sahara Sand.

Basic Black - 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2
Rococo Rose - 4 x 5 1/4
White - 4 x 5 1/4 (for the inside)
Scraps of Blushing Bride Foil for Love die cuts

Here are a couple other cards I made with this fabulous set.

I colored these flowers on the Designer Series Paper with my Rococo Rose & Old Olive blends. The shiny paper in the background is the Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper. It also comes in Rococo Rose, Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand.

We made this card in class Monday night. I used the Blushing Bride foil for Always and the gorgeous Blushing Bride metallic ribbon.

Creative Stampers Tutorial Bundle Group Blog Hop: Corner Bouquet Sympathy Card


It's my favorite time of the Stampin' Up year - Sale-a-bration!  That means we get to earn free products! I've recently joined the Creative Stampers group and this month we are all focusing on Sale-a-bration items.  I decided to play with the Corner Bouquet and Heal Your Heart stamp sets. I also had to try out the new Blending Brushes - they are fabulous!


Calypso Coral cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 - scored at 4 1/4
Basic Black cardstock - 3 3/4 x 4 5/8 - die cut with Ornate Borders die
White cardstock - 3 1/4 x 4 1/2

I sponged Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry inks on the white cardstock. Start with Daffodil Delight at the top, then Calypso Coral and finally Rich Razzleberry. I used the Stamparatus to stamp the bouquet and sentiment in Memento Black.  That way I could stamp several times and get a nice dark image.  I added a few Gilded Gems for the finishing touch.

Check out my Facebook Live tonight at 7:30 and I'll demonstrate how to use the Blending Brushes to make a background like this. You can me on my creatingwithcindy Facebook page.
