What an exciting Day!!! This is the day we’ve all been waiting for. “The Royal Blog tour”!!! I hope you enjoy my share today featuring an Oldie but a Goodie!!! “Bloomin’ Beautiful”!!!! It’s one of my favorite sets and just lends itself to cards sets and Beautiful Cards made simple. So sit back and enjoy!!!
This first card is done using the long stemmed image. I colored it in with Lovely Lilac and a bit of green for the leaves, a dash of yellow in the center just of a touch of sunshine. I have paired the Lovely Lilac with our simple and Elegant Very Vanilla Cardstock. It’s yummy!
You probably remember my little crimping trick from last year….I decided to bring it back since it was such a hit only with different colors and the scalloped trim border. Don’t forget that. This look was achieved with our new scallop punch and matching corner punch. It’s so delicate. I love it. What about that ribbon? Is it to die for or what? I adore these ribbons, they are so easy to work with and lovely to look at. Hope you like it. I wish you could see the shimmer on the card but you can’t it’s totally shimmery from the shimmer mist I’ve sprayed on it’s entirety.
Tutorial for the Crimping will be shown after the tour as so many of you have asked for it.
My next card uses the same set only it’s larger card using the same image three times. Textured Background is from our newest Embossing Folder available to you on July 1st. I also used the or little Embosslit for the Butterflies. This card is shimmery too but not in this photo….it measures 4 1/2 x 6 1/4
My last card showcase the same set only the other image of flowers in a Vase. I decided to make this one a large square measuring 5 1/4 x 5 1/4.
I ran the front of the card through my Big shot using one of our texturz Plates for the swirl in the background. The bow is done with my special Bow Treatment using a Rhinestone Brad and of course using our luscious Vanilla Satin Ribbon.
I guess That’s it for today. I hope you have enjoyed your stay and will continue on with the Tour.
As Always Thanks for stopping by and have a ……….
Stampinglee Good Day!
