Enchanting Edges With An Awesome Blossom Flower

I really can't get enough of the Everyday Enchantment Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper!  I love it! 

Who would have ever guessed that I would like Poppy Parade so much? Those close to me know I've struggled with liking that color…until now, that is!

I think it must be the combination of colors and patterns in the papers that make me love it so!  Poppy Parade, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Peach Parfait, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla—I never would have put all of those together, but they really work! 

I love that Stampin' Up! can change my mind about a color simply by providing me with a fresh and trendy color combination!  Too Cool!

My favorite card from January's Card Class was this one, featuring the Everyday Enchantment paper, Adorning Accents Edgelits & Adorning Accents Impressions Folders, and the new Blossom Punch!

These Two Cool cards are nearly identical aside from the different sentiments and flower centers, because why mess with what works!  And, this design really works for me!  Simple and pretty!

Card Details: I started with a 5-1/4" x 3-1/2" piece of floral paper, then trimmed the edge with on of the Adorning Accents Edgelit.  After mounting that on the Poppy Parade card base, I used the coordinating Adorning Accents Impressions Folder to add a raised line along the decorative border.  Love it!

Sab - Elementary Elegance set

The sentiment is from another Sale-A-Bration selection, the Elementary Elegance stamp set!  The words were stamped in Soft Suede and the tiny bird and butterfly were stamped in Poppy Parade.

Blossom Flower: I punched two flowers from another Everyday Enchantment paper with the Blossom Punch, and gently curled their petals upward with a Bone Folder.  

The center image is from the Fresh Vintage Sale-a-Bration stamp set.  I stamped one center in Peach Parfait, and the other in Pool Party, then trimmed around the images.

I punched a hole in the center and added an Everyday Enchantment Brad (another Sale-A-Bration selection!)

All of the layers are then adhered together with Dimensionals for a great 3D look!

Flower Center TIP: I've since learned that you can use the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch to punch out this shape.  Here's how…

Blossom tip 1

1) After unlocking your punch, set your Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch to the solid flower shape.

Blossom tip 2

2) Stamp the image on Very Vanilla card stock.

Blossom tip 3

3) Turn the punch upside-down and line up the dotted lines on the image with the openings on the punch.  Look closely at the photo to see what I mean.  It's not as easy to see as a regular punch, but it works!

Blossom tip 4

4) Punch!  It will hardly feel like it punched when you push down. 

I'll be sharing this new tip with my workshop attendees later today when we make this card!  Shout out to the stamping ladies from Brotherhood Mutual!  Woot!  Woot!
