Yes, I too copy cards! I saw a post the other day on instagram from Fun Stampers Journey. I thought the card was drop dead Gorgeous!

Hmmm I don’t have all the supplies but I think I can make it look similar.

There aren’t any instructions for this card that I’m aware of anyway. So I set to work in my stamp room trying to recreate it.

First obstacle was the flower; I don’t have those. What to do? Make one!

I used the Spiral Lines Die carried over from the last mini; to create my flower.

I accented it with some Sparkle Silk and Sparkle Dust and a little Pearl.

For the Silver and Vellum leaves I used the Summer Branch.

The heart was created by adding some White Liner sheet to a cut piece of Bubble Gum card stock and then pealed off the liner and dipped it into Sparkle Dust.

Now for the actual card front:
The Cool Pool was run through the Amaze machine inside the Heart You embossing folder.

Next I cut out the Heart center using the Heart Felt dies.

To get the little hearts in a row in the center of the big heart I used the Heart Strip die with 2 pieces of Whip Cream card stock.

I omitted the silver little hearts in the bottom corner.

Oh you might want to see the Card that Fun Stampers Journey did…..

Pretty similar but I changed up the sentiment stamp set, changed the flower, not sure if they used the Whip Cream Thread and some minor differences.

So you see everyone copies and they don’t always turn out exactly the same but tweak it and make it your own with the products you have.

FSJ Beauty Bloom with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

This is my second attempt at this stamp set and I must say I am really liking it. It turns out beautiful no matter how you use it! Maybe that’s why they called it Beauty Bloom. 🙂

I am at my cottage and have limited supplies with me so I don’t think I’m doing too bad at coming up with cards with the supplies I have on hand.

I brought along the oh so pretty silver scallop and black licorice sparkle washi tape and knew I wanted to use them on a card with the Beauty Bloom stamp set.

I also had the new Fashion Silver drops and the silver sequins.

I stamped the image twice using Black Licorice ink once on the card front and the second time on Brushed Silver card stock. I had cut out the blooms and popped them up on the card front. I then added the Fashion Silver drops to the centers.

To finish off the card I added a little Sparkle Silk.

This would make a great Silver Anniversary Card or any other occasion as well.

A trio of Gorgeousness! Aren’t these beautiful?

I created these 3 cards when I was working on my featured stamp set for the month of June and realized that the NEW Film Frame Die wouldn’t be available until July to order so I had to recreate my featured project for June and hold onto these beauties until now.

The Greetings Bouquet stamp set is available in the new catalog as well as the Film Frame Die.

I LOVE all the new Film Dies check them out in the Project Me section of the catalog. You will find the different shape options on pages 27, 31, and 33.

Click on the ones you wish to purchase and add them to your cart.

I embossed the Greetings Bouquet onto the Bubble Gum, Lavender Fusion, and the Banana Cream card stock.

The Ribbon’s used are Lavender Fusion, Bubble Gum and Banana Cream and I tied a Clear Bloom Accent over the top with the Black Licorice Thread.

The Pearls finish off the cards.

You could create 1 more in another color and create last month’s box and give them as a gift. So pretty!

Today’s card was some inspiration from yesterday’s card and the layout is from the Can You Case It CYCI #143 sketch challenge.

I changed out my Persian Garden die for the Artful Burst die DI-0220 $19.95.

I also changed out my Happy New Year sentiment for “Celebrate” from the Tag Elements ATS stamp AT-0130 $7.95.

The Journey Brush Gold CS-0134 $12.95 card stock was adhered to the inside of the card front. The base of the card is the Black Licorice card stock CS-0003 $6.95.

The glasses and the sentiment were embossed in Gold on Whip Cream card stock CS-0040 $6.95.

I just created a Wedding or Anniversary card using the New Year ATS AT-0045 $7.95 stamp and the Tag Element stamp.

It’s fun to be able to use stamps for more than one occasion; I like to make things versatile.
