Welcome to Stamping Flair on this Saturday morning. It’s a weekend like no other here in Melbourne, where we are in lock down but us crafters need not fear boredom. We have supplies and unfinished projects to last a lifetime! I hope you are all keeping well and in good spirits. You are in the right place to get you into creative mode.
Today I’m hopping with my friends from the Stamp ‘N Hop team and we are showcasing our favourite bundle. Now this one was a tough choice as there are so many beautiful bundles available in the Annual Catalogue as well as the Mini Holiday Catalogue.
I chose the Forever Fern bundle for it’s versatility to offer quick and simple cards which look really beautiful. This bundle is perfect for the beginner stamper as it offers the capacity to step-up your projects as you become more comfortable with stamping. For the Advanced crafter, the coordinating dies offer you additional leaves and elements to add more pizzazz to your projects.
I added the beautiful Gold Laser cut paper which is part of the Forever Greenery Suite. A poppy from the Painted Poppies stamp set, coloured in Flirty Flamingo, adds a soft contrast to the shades of green on this card. Die cut leaves in Sahara Sand and Soft Sea Foam coordinate with that beautiful Designer Series Paper.
Join me this afternoon on my Facebook Live where I’ll show you how to create this card and give you some fun tips and techniques. All the products I have used on this card are listed at the bottom of this post. Thank you for visiting me today. I hope you have enjoyed my project and I would love for you to leave me a comment.

Welcome to my blog and the Joy of Sets monthly blog hop. No surprises with our theme this month – Love is in the Air. If you are new to my blog, I hope you enjoy my projects and become a regular.
With only a few days left to Valentine’s Day, we hope to inspire you with our projects. So please make sure you stop by all the blogs for loads of ideas to help you create something special for that special someone.
My projects started off with my idea of using the Detailed Hearts Die with watercolouring. Then I chose my colours of Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride. Using an aqua painter, I watercoloured a panel of Shimmery White cardstock.
The card base was embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. Then I layered a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock die cut with the Stitched Rectangles die. I die cut another piece of Whisper White cardstock in the same size. Then using the Detailed Hearts die, I embossed the white panel.
I stamped and punched the heart from the watercoloured cardstock and cut a Heart doily in half to create a smaller matte around this image.
I had some watercoloured cardstock left so I made a gift tag for this cute bag which is in the Birthday Bonanza suite. One of the Stitched Rectangle dies was used to create the banner shape.
I added some of the die cut hearts from my card to embellish the tag and this gift bag filled with chocolate hearts was all set for giving.
I hope you have enjoyed these projects. If you have any questions or feedback, please leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you. Next along our hop is Fiona Whitehead. Please click the ‘next’ button to be directed to her blog.

The Magnolia Lane Suite is such a pretty suite which has so many coordinating products to make your crafting experience easy. It comprises of a stamp set with several sentiments and images including the huge magnolia. There are dies to cut out these images and also some that cut out images from the coordinating Designer Series Paper. Ribbon, twine, Stampin’ Blends also make up this suite.
My card uses the Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes and the Memories & More Card Park which simplifies cardmaking even more. The cards and envelopes have a silver detailing on them and the envelope liners are printed with Mossy Meadow leaves.
I have chosen a Flirty Flamingo card base and coloured my flower with Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. I wanted to slightly veer from the colour palette of the suite which is Basic Black, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink, So Saffron and Whisper White. The printed vellum comes in the Memories & More Card Pack. Mounting the vellum onto the Flirty Flamingo changes it’s look.
I hadn’t realized how large that flower was until I got the bundle in my hands. It’s a large flower and so pretty. The best part is – there is a die to cut it out.
Did you Know?
All stamps are shown at actual size in Stampin’ Up! catalogues (unless otherwise stated). This makes it very easy to order the sentiments and images you want as you know exactly what you are going to get.
I added a smaller Memories & More card with a tiny leaf pattern on it and mounted the flower on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it depth.
To make the sentiment stand out, I heat embossed the ‘Congratulations’ in White Embossing powder on Early Espresso cardstock. This created a nice contrast against the busy background.
A new feature in the Annual Catalogue this year is the addition of a simplified one item number ordering system. So when you want to order the entire Magnolia Lane suite, you just need to enter item no. 152178 and it will order all 9 products for you. How easy is that?
This month is Bonus Days so for every $90 you spend you get a $9 voucher to spend in August. Great time to stock up on essentials as well as some of your wish list items.
All products used to make this card are listed below. Click on any of the products to start ordering and creating with this beautiful Magnolia Lane Suite.
I’d love to hear from you so please leave me a comment or feedback and don’t hesitate to contact me with any queries.
My projects continue today with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley. I can’t seem to stop creating with this beautiful range of products which I’m sure, was made for me. If you know anything about me, I love the colour pink and you will find my home decorated with shades of pink from cushions to ornaments and flowers – I love it.
I’ve got a couple of coordinating projects to show you today. The card and mini pizza box have been decorated with the same paper and similar arrangement of flowers. I think this would make a lovely wedding card as you could put money or a gift card in the box.
For the card base and pizza box I chose the softer pink of Blushing Bride to layer my beautiful Rose Gold paper on.
I started the card off by stamping a border on the side of the card with some leaves in Blushing Bride. Tone on Tone stamping adds just the right amount of background without taking over the design. Then I added the Rose Gold detailed paper with Night of Navy striped coordinating paper acting as a border.
The flowers have been stamped in a combination of Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo. Don’t these look lovely together?
Rose Gold shimmer paint was added to the centre of the flowers. I did this by dipping a stylus into the lid of the shimmer paint and then adding dots on the flowers. For the larger flowers, I dragged these dots outwards creating a shimmery centre. You can see the shimmer in the photo below.
Rose Gold foil was used for the fine leaves that have been added to the floral spray. These cut out really easily and the shiny leaves work really well with the little Rose Gold flowers on the Designer Paper. The sentiment was stamped on one of the die cuts from the pre-cut sheets which come in this Medley.
Mini Pizza Box
The gift box is very quick to make with our cute mini pizza boxes. I layered the Designer Paper on top of the Blushing Bride cardstock. then added a coordinating paper on the 4 sides. The flower has been arranged with the leaves as I did for the card to make this a lovely coordinated gift set.
The Everything is Rosy Product Medley is available for a limited time until the end of May or while stocks last. You can see how easy it is to create beautiful projects with these products.
