Thoughtful Blooms Layered Card

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog today. Last weekend I  took part in the Ink, Stamp, Share Blog Hop. The theme of this blog hop was Sale-A-Bration. I created this layered card using the lovely stamp set Thoughtful Blooms which is FREE with a £45 order. I just love it. There is a FREE punch that punches out the big flower image, you need a £90 spend for this.




Measurements and Materials

  • Card Base - Basic Black
    • 8 1/4" x 5  7/8" - Score @ 4 1/8"
    • 14.6cm x 21cm - Score @ 10.5cm
  • Mat 1 -  Whisper White
    • Hand stamped and die cut using the largest stitched rectangle
  • Mat 2 - Whisper White 
    • Die Cut using the 5th stitched rectangle
    • A Basic Black frame was cut using the 4th & 5th stitched rectangle



Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)

Spotlight on the FREE Lily Pad Products

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the spot light I am doing.  There are so many wonderful new products and suites it is easy to miss some as you look through the catalogue, so I am doing some spotlights on some of them for you. Today is is the turn of FREE Lily Pad Products. There is the most stunning paper pack which I didn't realise is based on actual paintings, the video below shows you. It reminded me of Monet paintings which I just love and the Perennial Essence Paper in the annual catalogue which is another of my favourites. There is also a lovely stamp set that is reversible and again the video shows you haw these stamp. Both these items are FREE with a £45 order. Lastly is the coordinating die set, these are just gorgeous and FREE with a £90 order. I am absolutely addicted to using these products and have created lots of projects with them.
